“This,” says Gino Santangelo, pausing dramatically, in a small dining room at The Forge, “is where Frank Sinatra and his pals partied.”Santangelo has been a sommelier for 40 years at the legacy Miami Beach restaurant, which has a throwback atmosphere not unlike that of Hong Kong’s Goldfinch, in Causeway Bay.Tales of Sinatra are plentiful in my nostalgic hunt for traces of old Miami Beach, the sun-drenched strip of sand that this year celebrates a century of being a magnet for American dreamers and schemers (it was officially incorporated as a town on March 26, 1915).
