“Here comes the sun, dada da da…”

And you can just step right in.

A state-of-the-art tanning salon is slated to open at the start of May at the retail level of Red Road Commons.  Called Electric Sun, the 1700 sq. ft. store will house 14 tanning rooms offering five levels of tanning.  Some of the tanning beds cost as much as $65,000.

Owner Steve Lehman has been in the tanning salon business for twenty years, and currently owns two other salons in Fort Lauderdale.  While originally from Chicago, Steve came to Miami in the early 90s.  His busy work schedule didn’t give him the opportunity to go to the beach, so he started doing tanning. And that’s when he became a devotee and entrepreneur.

One of the beds which he offers his clients is the Sportarrado Mastersun, an Italian-made bed which provides a deep tan more efficiently with 2000 watt lamps.  About some of the negative pushback about tanning salons, Steve says these beds are much safer than real sun exposure, as it is in a controlled environment for a brief ten minute session.  Tanning provides Vitamin D, however you never want to be overexposed.

Stay tuned for the Grand Opening.  Among many of the promotions and gifts that will be raffled are three Cannondale Adventure bikes, tanning packages and more.

Electric Sun will be open seven days a week: Mon-Sat., 7-11; Sun 10-8.

Now open on 57th Avenue in the Red Road Commons is Café Bleu, an attractive and friendly space of some 2500 sq.ft.

Cafe Bleu has specialty coffee, upscale beverages, fresh baked goods, signature sandwiches, soups, salads, and home baked goods – all served in a welcoming environment.  Customers can select from hot drinks, espresso drinks and blender drinks.  And they serve up a great breakfast menu, salads, wraps and more.

Their espresso machine is the top-of-the-line La Marzocco Italian Espresso machine.  The barista will hand tap your grind in
preparing your espresso.

Café Bleu staff ready to serve you up some friendly smiles and a great experience.

With a second location in Delray Beach and in process of exploring other locations, the owner is looking to establish a community identity for each location and not just plop down another cookie cutter concept.

Café Bleu finds itself as being the community café, where local artists and musicians can showcase their work.  A portion of the spacious café is set aside as a parlor, where musicians perform on Sundays and Thursdays.

Being proximate to the UM, customers will appreciate the good service and pricing.  Café Bleu is open 7 days a week, from 7a- 11p.  And you can order breakfast anytime.

One month ago, French chef/restaurateur Christophe Leroy opened his newest location in the USA right here in SOMI.  This restaurant concept even with the candy-apple red acoutements, has made him famous in Saint-Tropez in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region of southeastern France and in Morocco (Marrakech), where French cuisine lovers come to discover the renowned flavors of this gastronomy.

Tropéziens and tourists enjoy the quality and ambiance of his restaurants in Saint-Tropez.  The chef also is known as « the caterer of Saint-Tropez » with its star-studded celebrity appeal.

In South Beach, he opened a “pop-up” restaurant at the Webster Hotel, and chose the South Miami area, known for its French community.  “du Marche” is best understood as market, that is, the restaurant is close to the product.  The chef du cuisine is particular about having the freshest ingredients.

In SOMI, every Thursday, there is a $30 sparkling tasting with canapés and typical cuisine of Southern France, such as the boulibaise soup and crepe Suzette. La Table du Marché is open seven days a week.  Delivery, catering and private dinners at homes is available.

The French cuisine lover will find the spirit of Saint Tropez and the French Riviera lifestyle with finest attention paid to every detail.
