Renowned South Florida interior designer, Louis Shuster was invited to share an intimate birthday dinner with Hollywood movie director/producer Ron Krauss. Close friends and family gathered in Miami Beach to enjoy the event at the lush restaurant, Hakkasan.
Hakkasan Miami, opened in 2009 at the Midcentury Modern Fontainebleu Hotel and Resort and is the inaugural American Hakkasan location. The Hollywood indie auteur and the south Florida interior designer shared their award-winning Cantonese cuisine and signature cocktails in celebration of Ron’s 45th birthday.
Krauss, is best known for writing and directing the moving 2013 Indie drama “Gimme Shelter“. The film tells the story of Apple (Vanessa Hudgens), a pregnant teenager who runs away from her abusive, drug addicted mother (Rosario Dawson) in an attempt to reconnect with her father (Brendan Frasier). Eventually, she is assisted by a Catholic Priest (James Earl Jones) who connects her with a shelter for pregnant teens. Based on a true story, Krauss spent over a year living in the Several Sources Shelter founded by Kathy DiFlore. His experiences not only inspired the film but have resulted in a philanthropic organization, Gimme Inspiration to assist teens in similar situations.
Louis and the team at Shuster Design certainly wish Ron a wonderful birthday and hope for many, many more in the future.
The signature is unmistakable.
