    Brain Food for Mental Sharpness at any age! Grain Brain by Dr. David Perlmutter

    in Food

    Wait until you hear what our guest Board Certified Neurologist, Dr. David Perlmutter, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Grain Brain, has to say about what foods will and won’t positively affect your brain health.  You may have heard the controversy resulting from his declaration that wheat, sugar and carbs have devastating effects on brain function.  He further turned upside down the perception that eating foods such as butter (yes, butter), coconut oil, beef, and other sources of good fats are a “no no.”  In fact, he says, Yes, they are right foods – all are important for your brain’s short and long term health. In just a few minutes, we are going to find out why fats, not carbs, are essential for mental sharpness!  And, we’ll ask Dr. Perlmutter to share some of the 150 delicious nutritious recipes found in Dr. Perlmutter’s newly released The Grain Brain Cookbook.  A few caught my eye: Eggs Benedict with Zucchini Pancakes, Almond Crusted Chicken Strips, Grilled Parmesan Tomatoes, Grilled Spiced Flank Steak, and Lemon Souffle Pudding!

    Let's Do Lunch! at Love Cafe & Bar

    in Entertainment

    Love Cafe & Bar owner Margarita Abramov greets you so warmly you already feel like family. She brings many of her grandmother's delicious homemade recipes all the way from Odessa, Russia to New York City; one of which is over 200 years old. Margarita proudly claims this one-of-a-kind cheese blintze recipe doesn't exist anywhere on the internet so it's safe within the family.

    Love Cafe & Bar is a loving tribute, honoring both her grandparents, bringing in a menu of Russian and European delicacies all under one roof. Her crepes are so delicious you can eat them solo but the Count Amaury with grilled chicken and mushrooms floating in house made Bechamal sauce is a must try! Her pierogies are a slice of crescent heaven, and blini with imported Russian red caviar explode in your mouth. Russian salads include Olivier, a Russian potato salad and Vinegret, a Russian beet salad. For meat lovers there's an irresistable chicken liver pate that's smooth and creamy, and comforting Hungarian Ghoulash served in a bread bowl. Signature stuffed cabbage has a twist; it's mixed with basmati rice. Her chicken wings are her baby and they are to die for with over 1,000 flavors such as garlic parmesan, chili and mango barbecue.

    There is a full espresso and juice bar featuring a European flair of Italian sodas, iced macchiato which looks just as good as it tastes; caramel with french vanilla espresso and milk over ice. Margarita says there is Russian sophistication in their Italian drinks.

    At Love Cafe & Bar, Margarita spreads the love, making you feel like you're part of the family. Her motto is 'serve the people what you would eat yourself and do it with love which is the main ingredient with every dish we produce!'
