The Forge Restaurant | Wine Bar was featured in Ocean Drive Magazine’s Flavor of the Month. Burn Notice star Gabrielle Anwar gives her take on healthy eating in Miami. She recommended The Forge Restaurant | Wine Bar for its Kale Salad. Kale is one of the healthiest super vegetables on the market. It is a fantastic source of fiber, antioxidants, calcium and vitamin C among other vitamins and minerals. It can be eaten cooked or raw and Dewey LoSasso of The Forge serves it in a finely chopped salad with sweet currents, pine nuts, lemon zest and a pinch of parmesan. Refined and delicious.

On Saturday November 5, 2011 the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Southern Florida and InterContinental Miami celebrated the 17thAnnual InterContinental Miami Make-A-Wish Ball. Truman Capote’s phenomenal Black & White ball was the theme. Shareef Malnik, the owner of The Forge Restaurant | Wine Bar was the chairman of the Ball, with Rock and Roll icon Joan Jett and the Blackhearts as the entertainment and Gabrielle Anwar as the celebrity Auctioneer, the Ball was greater than the expectations.
With veteran Rocker Joan Jett the Foundation reached it’s goal of raising over $ 10 million dollars in it’s seventeen year history. Everyone had a fabulous evening.

Anwar, who today lives in Miami Beach with her three children Willow, 17, Hugo, 10, and Paisley, 7, and her boyfriend, Shareef Malnik, owner of The Forge restaurant, pursed a string of commercials, did more TV projects and started shooting films all over Europe. She made her movie debut in 1988’s Manifesto and continued her work with BBC TV productions, including First Born, Summer’s Lease, Press Gang and The Mysteries of the Dark Jungle.
Her life got even greater when she met Malnik last year during her 40th birthday dinner at Paradise Farms in Homestead. She was enjoying a sumptuous organic feast with a friend when she started talking to Malnik, who was there selecting field-to-table foods and learning about new menu ideas for his recent redesign of The Forge. They clicked on the spot and made plans for a party. “The rest is delicious history,” she enthuses. “We eventually moved in together and now live a wonderful life with the children. I love being in our house on the bay, paddleboarding on the ocean and enjoying our time.” Marriage is a hot topic in their home but she wants to be “cautious” before she takes that next step and is in no hurry to do so. She is happy with the way things are—she likes to dine at The Forge as well as cook gourmet meals at home when she is not shooting. …
For now, Anwar is busy working on her new role as the auctioneer for Malnik’s Make-a-Wish Foundation Miami gala at the Intercontinental Hotel on November 5. She and Malnik talk about the event daily and are planning for it to be the best fundraiser ever. “Paula Abdul was the auctioneer last year,” says Anwar of the event, which has attracted high-profile auctioneers such as Kim Kardashian and Sharon Stone. “I am really looking forward to it. I want it to be a dynamic night and will do more than just put my name on it.”
“Gabrielle is such a talent; a consummate professional and most importantly – sincere, passionate and committed,” says Malnik. “This is why she is the best person for the job— namely, our MC and auctioneer for the 17th annual Intercontinental Make-A-Wish Ball. It is also why she is the best person for me.”
