Did You Know?

In the 1800s, it took a full day to go from Sandy Springs to Atlanta. In the early 20th century, that turned into half a day, and now the trip only takes 30 minutes—of course, that depends on traffic.

hef Mimmo Alboumeh brings his passion into the kitchen, like so many chefs do, but he delivers it with a humble attitude and an intense philosophy about

food. His Lebanese and Spanish heritage shines in his dishes, which he says inspires him to take traditional American fare to another level of flavor.

[ [ I AM IN THE

BUSINESS MAKING DISHES OF

“I’ve been in a restaurant working since I was 15 years old,” he says. “My great grandma inspired all the women in my family—my grandma, my mom, my aunts—and then they inspired me. She had that magic essence—she would touch food and it was like, ‘Wow!’ She lived to be 100 years old. She thought she was Queen of England. She had that attitude. But man, could she cook. When she was bored, she cooked for her seven cats. If you showed up to her house, she would get up, make you a plate, and you eat. Incredible food.”

THAT PEOPLE CRAVE.

3/21/17 12:27 PM


What his Sandy Springs restaurant, Maya Steaks & Seafood, lacks in square footage is made up for with its cozy ambiance and artfully presented food. “When I put a menu together, I think about my customers. I know what they like because they tell me and I can see it in their eyes. I like simple ingredients, but I think outside the box with seasoning. I am in the business of making dishes that people crave.”

“There are three ingredients no one should ever be without. These are the basis of so many wonderful dishes.”

When asked about the name of his restaurant, he smiles and talks about his youngest daughter, Maya, who is four. “She is the youngest. My other two beautiful daughters are 16 and 10. Maya is the princess in the family and she knows it. My wife, Debbie, and I like the idea that I honor her with the name of the restaurant—and it shows a Spanish flair, like my food.”

Chef Mimmo’s 3 Go-To

“From the silverware to the music to the presentation, I take my time to make it perfect. When it comes to plating, it’s an art,” he explains proudly. “It’s a vision that some people have. I have Spanish art in me—like in the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid. I see dishes like an artist sees artwork. Like Francisco Goya and Pablo Picasso—I think of a dish as art. I want that piece to be stunning.” He says he picked Sandy Springs for his culinary venture because of its location. “Sandy Springs is the next Buckhead. Successful people live in Sandy Springs and that’s who I want to come to my restaurant.” He talks about free time spent in the neighborhood and he refers respectfully to Jamie Adams, who owns il Giallo Osteria & Bar, just down the street. “They are straightforward there. Hard workers, like me. I like to eat there.” “I keep my prices lower than I could,” he confesses. “Because I want people to come often. I bring them my food and I can see their eyes drool and it makes me happy.” MayaSteaks.com

Ingredients

SEA SALT These days, you can find so many fancy kinds of salt. Pink salt, gray salt. You name it. You could pay $50 for a small jar! But I use Morton Sea Salt at the restaurant. I keep ingredients simple and all natural, but find the highest quality possible. You don’t have to buy something expensive to get great flavor.

BLACK PEPPER I love McCormick® spices— for pepper especially. It costs a little more than other brands, but they care about the purity of the ingredient. When you open the lid to the jar, it smells like pepper, not something that’s been sitting around.

OLIVE OIL At home, I have 10 different brands of olive oil from Spain and Italy. If you see Denominazione di Origine Protetta (Protected Destination of Origin) on the bottle, it tells you that, start to finish, the oil was inspected, pressed and shipped from Italy. It’s important to find cold-pressed, extra virgin olive oil. Those olives are pressed when they’re cold and there was no heat or any chemicals used—those hurt the flavor and quality.

Bob Brown

A N T I Q U E S I C O N • AU C T I O N E E R • YA C H T S M A N By Stacy Moser

Bob Brown has a flair for selling people things they don’t need. Big, expensive things they don’t need. Back in the 1970s, Brown opened a dress shop here for his wife and mother, using antiques as display fixtures. He soon discovered that the antiques sold as quickly as the clothing. “I said, ‘Forget the dresses, let’s sell antiques!’” Bob laughs. “That’s how Red Baron Antiques was born. I couldn’t afford an alarm system, so we stocked huge items that people couldn’t walk off with.” Now, with over 60,000 square feet of space, he reigns supreme over Atlanta’s world of antiques, with clients flying in for auctions from all over the globe. Antiques have even become a family affair—Bob had a recurring role on the Discovery Channel’s “Auction Kings” reality show, which starred his son, Paul.

Q

Who are your buyers and what do they want?

Nothing I have is stuff anyone needs. They just want it. Rod Stewart, Billy Joel and Wayne Newton were guys who bought things from me. I told ’em, “I got it, and you don’t.” Then they went nuts! The passion I see in buyers is phenomenal.

Q

What are the most unusual items you’ve sold?

Q

What was the most you made on a single antique sale?

Q

What do you do for fun?

I auctioned off a diamond ring for $500,000 to a guy who came up onstage to get it and turned around, walked over to his wife and gave it to her. Pretty cool guy! I sold Elvis Presley’s first guitar for $180,000.

I love to eat out at Rumi’s Kitchen, Maya Steaks & Seafood, il Giallo and Ippolito’s. I hang out on my boats. I keep a 38’ Chris-Craft cruiser on Lake Lanier. RBAntiques.com

SPRING 2017

There’s no such thing as the most unusual piece—they are all pretty unusual. One that amazed me was the E.T. model from the movie E.T. [the Extra-Terrestrial]—I’d never seen the movie, so I expected to get, maybe, $400 for it. It sold for $39,000. And I sold a private, paneled room and desk belonging to President Eisenhower.

Jessica Loncar and Kimberly Croley THERAPISTS • ENTREPRENEURS • MOMS By Stacy Moser

Jessica Loncar and Kimberly Croley’s paths crossed back in 2004, when they both worked at a physical therapy clinic together. Little did they know that they would someday be co-owners of their own Sandy Springs studio, Stability Pilates and Physical Therapy, working to impact the lives of clients in search of wellness and healing. “We became friends and stayed in touch over the years and, before you know it, we were talking about opening our own place. I had finished my MBA and she just had her second child. I was about to get married. We had big changes happening and wanted to be our own bosses,” Kimberly explains.

“There are already so many excuses not to exercise or go to rehab,” Jessica asserts. “We didn’t want a location that’s difficult to access to be one of them.”

[

(L to R) JESSICA LONCAR AND KIMBERLY CROLEY.

A PART OF THE COMMUNITY NOW, WE ARE SUCH

[

THAT ALMOST EVERYONE WHO WALKS IN THE DOOR SEES SOMEONE THEY ALREADY KNOW! —KIMBERLY CROLEY

Kimberly chuckles as she explains, “Now, we are such a part of the community that almost everyone who walks in the door sees someone they already know!” Jessica and Kimberly have not only attracted a loyal following of clients, but a tight band of employees, too.

One staff member, Autumn Dawson Mathis, a rehab instructor, was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis the year she began to work there. “We’re going through it together with Autumn. We’ve been there for the whole thing. It impacts her, but she’s tough and she gets through it,” Kimberly says. “Every year we support her by raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Luckily, Atlanta has one of the largest care centers here at Emory University.” On May 20, the studio’s staff will once again participate in Great Strides, a walk that fundraises for the disease. Jessica says, “You’ll frequently see us at Cafe Sunflower or Breadwinner Café & Bakery for lunch and we’ve got Trader Joe’s two blocks away! Sandy Springs has all sorts of healthy options for our clients!” StabilityAtlanta.com and CFF.org/GreatStrides

She says they picked their space on Roswell Road because “it’s a great location for the type of client we wanted—it’s an active community with people who know each other and can spread the word. We had to have excellent accessibility. That meant being close to highways and a large parking lot.”
