Age-Appropriate Procedures for Facial Rejuvenation


t what age is it appropriate to have a cosmetic procedure done? The answer may surprise

you. People who begin working with a plastic surgeon at the first sign of wrinkles or loose skin can delay aging of their skin and may avoid costly corrective procedures later in life. For most men and women, the best time to start thinking about cosmetic procedures is the early to mid-thirties. Bahman Guyuron, MD In the younger years, less work is needed to achieve the desired look because the skin is still healthy and elastic. Aging skin loses its elasticity over time, so older patients generally require deeper, more aggressive procedures. Dr. Bahman Guyuron is an internationally recognized teacher and innovator in the field of plastic surgery. He specializes in facial procedures including non-surgical and surgical facial rejuvenation. His recommendation for younger looking skin at any age is to practice healthy skin care habits and invest in laser skin resurfacing as needed. In this article, you will read his recommendations for cosmetic procedures for people in their 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond, followed by a brief overview of each procedure.

Ages: 30-39 years

The first signs of aging typically show up in the early or mid-thirties for most men and women. At this point in life, the need for a facelift or anything major to preserve the youthful look is rare. Non-surgical facial rejuvenation with injectables and skin resurfacing can deliver subtle improvement in all the right places and more importantly – halt or delay aging. Non-Surgical Options: • Avoid unprotected sun exposure • Skin care • Injectables • Light laser skin resurfacing Surgical Options: • Eyelid surgery for removal of fat bags – often runs in families • Neck contouring with removal of fat • Mini facelift (for professional actors/actresses/models/etc.)

Ages: 40-59 years

Men and women in their forties and fifties commonly have fine lines and wrinkles around their eyes and eyelid bags may develop. The recommended treatment plan for most people is to continue doing what was being done in their thirties or start now if it was not done already:

An example of a real patient in her 40s before and after facial rejuvenation

follow a daily skin care routine using high quality products, try injectables (Botox® and Juvéderm®), or light laser therapy. Individuals who have not taken good care of their skin when they were younger, or if they smoke or used to smoke, may require surgery. In this situation, surgical facial rejuvenation can be considered. For many patients between the ages of 40 to 59 we often see superior outcomes. Non-Surgical Options: • Avoid unprotected sun exposure • Skin care • Injectables (fillers and neurotoxins such as Juvéderm and Botox) • Laser skin resurfacing Surgical Options: • Eyelid surgery • Neck lift and contouring by removal of fat and tightening the muscles • Forehead lift (or brow lift) • Facelift with fat injection

Ages: 60+ years

Patients in their sixties are beginning to show advanced skin aging. They have deeper wrinkles around the eyes, nose, and mouth, and a loss of elasticity and volume in other areas of the face. Loose skin may sag under the eyes or jaw bone. The age-appropriate recommendations are similar to younger patients, but older patients will need more aggressive treatment with lasers, fat injection, and surgery to remove loose skin and replace the lost volume. Non-Surgical Options: • Avoid unprotected sun exposure • Skin care • Injectables (Botox, Juvéderm) • Deeper skin resurfacing with a CO2 laser Surgical Options: • Eyelid surgery to remove bags under the eyes and tighten the upper eyelids • Correction of eyelid droopiness as a result of stretched muscles • Neck lift to remove unwanted fat under the chin and tightening the muscle • Forehead lift (or brow lift) for deep wrinkles • Facelift and fat injection to fill in the creases and restore natural glow to the skin using the power stem cells • Deep lasers to resurface the sun damaged, discolored and wrinkled skin For additional information and to schedule a consultation for facial rejuvenation with Dr. Guyuron, you can call Zeeba Clinic in Lyndhurst, Ohio at 440-461-7999 or visit his website at

Down by the river

President & CEO Kevin S. Adelstein Vice President of Sales Adam Mandell

f it’s summer in Cleveland, then it’s time to head to the water – especially this year, following what felt like a longer and harsher winter than in recent years. In past summer issues of Jstyle, we’ve taken readers out onto Lake Erie (2014), down to the beach at Edgewater Park (2015) and to Chagrin Falls’ scenic waterfalls (2016) for our fashion photo shoots. After heading to dry land last year for a photo shoot at Progressive Field, we return to the water this year by visiting the Cuyahoga River. Specifically, we visited the east bank of the Flats and two of its hot spots: Zack Bruell’s Alley Cat Oyster Bar and Collision Bend Brewing Company, led by Julian Bruell. Both eateries are stylish, and both offer great riverside experiences. The weather for our photo shoot in late May was gorgeous. Bright sunshine and cool temperatures ruled the day, and even though it was a Thursday morning and afternoon, the area was percolating with people enjoying the waterfront scenery and vibe. It’s easy to see why the rejuvenated east bank has again become one of the region’s top draws.

If you haven’t been down to the Flats for a summer night or weekend, you really owe it to yourself to pay a visit. Of course, the Cuyahoga River also serves as Cleveland’s connection to the modern-day environmental movement. In fact, it sparked the movement, literally. In 1969, the river famously caught fire when floating pieces of oil-slicked debris were ignited on the river by sparks from a passing train. The incident occurred near Campbell Road, east of what’s now the Steelyard Commons shopping center in Cleveland’s Cuyahoga Valley neighborhood (sometimes referred to as Industrial Valley, with good reason) and nowhere near the Flats. Following the fire, Congress passed the National Environment Policy Act, which helped establish the Environmental Protection Agency, an agency that eventually put forth the Clean Water Act.

The Cleveland Jewish News Summer 2018

Fashion. Food. Décor.

While the river is much healthier today than it was then, work continues – and on a global scale, much needs to be done to preserve the environment. To that point, in this issue we visit with members of Cleveland’s Jewish community to find out what they’re doing in their cities, their synagogues and at their workplaces to better the environment and find out what more they feel needs to be done. In addition, this issue will take you behind the scenes at a popular local ice cream shop, introduce you to two new Northeast Ohio delis and take you inside the newest high-rise apartment building in University Circle. There’s a lot to read about – and to do – this summer in Cleveland, and I hope you’ll take every opportunity you have to experience it all.

Alley Cat Oyster Bar Alley Cat is one of the latest concepts from Chef Zack Bruell, whose restaurant roster also includes popular locations like Parallax, L’Albatros Brasserie, Ristorante Chinato, Cowell & Hubbard and Dynomite. Alley Cat is a stylish eatery found along the boardwalk at the heart of the Flats East Bank entertainment district. It features open spaces, expansive views of the Cuyahoga River and seasonal open-air dining. It’s a great place to take in summertime sunsets over the river and Lake Erie, and the restaurant also has been known to host the Cleveland Cavaliers for dinners in its second-floor private event space. In addition to seafood offerings found at a traditional shore restaurant, Alley Cat features chicken, steak, chowders, soups and salads.

Collision Bend Brewing Company When Collision Bend Brewing Company opened in early 2017 – lead by director of service Julian Bruell, brewmaster Luke Purcell and executive chef Andy Dombrowski – there were great expectations. Since then, the artisanal riverside brewery and full-service restaurant has become one of downtown Cleveland’s shining hot spots and won USA Today’s 10Best Readers’ Choice award in the “Best Brew Pub” category. Expectations met. Aside from its menu and on-tap offerings, Collision Bend’s biggest draw is likely its waterfront patio, which is perfect for summer and for watching large freighters navigate the Cuyahoga River’s formidable twists and turns. It also has a private event space, and boaters are welcome to dock alongside the patio.

Repairing (literally)

the world

As global environmental concerns rise, some Northeast Ohio Jews make it their mission to help others go green



Summer 2018

By Amanda Koehn


he 20th anniversary of Earth Day in 1990 was a turning point for Jane Goodman. She worked in radio production and was doing media for the anniversary when she realized she had something to contribute to improving growing environmental problems affecting Northeast Ohio and the world. “What I’m good at is explaining pretty technical issues in layman’s terms so that most people can relate,” she says. “That was a gap that I saw, and I had these skills and experiences, and that’s where I fit. That’s my tikkun olam.” Goodman is now executive director of Cuyahoga River Restoration, a group that aims to restore and protect the environmental quality of the river, among other water sources, as well as a South Euclid city councilwoman, a role through which she’s helping her city reduce its carbon footprint. An example? The 2013 development of the ecologically innovative Oakwood Commons shopping center. Despite those like Goodman trying to do their part, as well as local municipalities attempting to become more sustainable, climate change is here, and more of it is coming. Cleveland Mayor Frank G. Jackson has said the city will continue to curb carbon emissions in line with the Paris Climate Agreement – a first step toward setting standards for each country to meet to attempt to avert the worst effects of climate change – despite President Donald Trump withdrawing the U.S. from it (effective 2020). It is now the only country not to embrace it. According to Cleveland’s 2013 Climate Action Plan (which is undergoing revisions), average annual temperatures have already increased over the past several decades. Anticipated impacts on public health include more heat-related stress, especially on the growing elderly population, greater risk of pest-related illnesses and reduced air quality. The area could also see a population shift, as people around the country and world look to leave areas more negatively affected by climate change and sea level rise, such as those in coastal areas or more extreme climates.

Moreover, Israel, a country with obvious ties to Cleveland’s Jewish community, is likely to be impacted disproportionately severely by climate change, which will harm the landscape, threaten agriculture and water access, and could lead to food insecurity or further instability in the region. While not everyone will make as a drastic career change like Goodman, there’s plenty of examples of local Jewish institutions and individuals making a difference in their own ways, as well as those implementing innovative solutions worldwide from which Northeast Ohio can learn.

Greening Jewish life in Cleveland For Rabbi Enid Lader of Beth Israel-The West Temple in Cleveland, incorporating environmental issues into the synagogue



includes both creating opportunities for individual action and increasing awareness by relating such issues to Judaism itself. She’s brought in Katy Allen of Ma’yan Tikvah, an environmentally oriented congregation in Wayland, Mass., as a guest speaker, and a children’s garden was recently planted at the temple. The congregation is also working toward creating a rain barrel collection program and synagogue horticultural garden. Lader says a major component to her approach is tying environmental issues into conversations and sermons when it’s most relevant. For example, she says Chanukah is a time where it’s natural to discuss light, which leads to the topic of energy-efficient light bulbs, and Tu b’Shevat brings about discussions of trees and recycling. She says

Debbie Chessin Children at Beth Israel-The West Temple in Cleveland plant a children’s garden behind the temple.

one of the best ways to engage people involves building off of interests they already have. The challenge, however, is making such initiatives appealing for those for whom environmentalism is foreign. “I think our biggest challenge is helping the members of our congregations be open to hearing different perspectives from each other and learning that way,” she says. Despite some facets of the Jewish community being slow to respond, Lader says she believes synagogues, similar to progressive churches, are taking the initiative to become more green. On a larger Jewish-institutional scale, the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, a national nonprofit focusing on community relations, has run the Coalition on the Environment and Jewish Life since 1993. COEJL works to mobilize Jewish institutions to address climate change and advocate for environmental legislation. Renny Wolfson, who’s a former Jewish Federation of Cleveland community relations committee chair and on the executive committee of the JCPA, says, generally, Jewish institutions like the Federation are engaged in sustainability issues like making its buildings and office culture environmentally friendly. However, there are challenges along the lines of expenses – or at least perceived expenses –

associated with environmental innovation and educating. “The Jewish community, like the rest of us, is engaged in this debate about climate change and about whether or not doing things for the environment is going to be economically productive,” he says, adding that although leading institutions like the Federation don’t often “broadcast” sustainability, they have a role and the community is generally “sensitive” to the issues. However, Goodman says she hasn’t come across as many local Jewish environmental leaders as she wishes. While she acknowledges there are philanthropists who give to environmental causes in the region and the Federation’s annual Tu b’Shevat seder, which focuses on protecting the planet and planting trees, she identifies as a lone Jew in many sustainability meetings. “I go back to, why are we planting trees in Israel when we need trees here?” she says.

Breaking the barrier toward action While individual and community actions are important for mitigating climate change, to see major changes that alter its course, policy action needs to happen on national, state and regional or local levels. A major aspect of that is

education, which is where Marc Lefkowitz, acting director of GreenCityBlueLake Institute, comes in. GreenCityBlueLake is the sustainability center of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, which works to educate Northeast Ohioans around environmental issues and takes up issues such as regional planning, watershed health, transportation alternatives, lakefront design, green building and climate change. Recently, GreenCityBlueLake has become part of the museum’s new conservation division, which Lefkowitz says may be useful to better educate the community on the importance of biodiversity and how it intersects with urban development. For Lefkowitz and his colleagues, providing a space where people can learn about climate change in a nonargumentative environment is a major goal. It’s also about changing the narrative around climate change so people don’t associate reducing carbon footprints with expense and a weakened economy. In fact, alternative energy resources have become more affordable, and economic growth and sustainable practices can align. “I think it’s necessary to have not only the data and the evidence that (allows us to) actually see this decoupling, but figuring out a way to have a conversation

about the environment that is non-confrontational (is also important) because it’s become so politicized,” Lefkowitz says. It’s also worth noting that other countries do not see the same politicization of climate change and denialism. For example, Israel is led by a rightwing government and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has called climate change “one of the pivotal issues of our time,” according to The Times of Israel. He also champions the country’s commitment to innovations in solar, agriculture

and irrigation technology. In terms of breaking that barrier toward action, Wolfson also says it’s important to educate people on the current and future costs of climate change for them to prioritize action. “I think just the general consequences of climate change for everybody – if it makes food more expensive, if it causes political disruption in the Middle East – those things affect all of us,” Wolfson says.

environmental movement know small behaviors like household recycling aren’t nearly enough to impact global climate change. She says a cultural shift needs to occur in which individuals and communities look at the world through an environmental lens. Younger generations are a good place to start, she says, as they’re the ones whose futures will bear the brunt of unimpeded climate change. “If we can fill the pipeline with young Jewish people actually doing environmental work, that would warm my heart immensely,” she says. To Goodman, it seems natural to incorporate environmentalism into Jewish holidays – important aspects of the religion and culture in which people tend refocus on their values. Another approach would be to green the holy buildings and Jewish institutions themselves. Lader says for Beth Israel, one key change was upgrading its old air system to one that is more energy efficient. The Federation also has taken steps to become more sustainable. Its office is working to reduce landfill waste, with the goal of sending zero waste to a landfill by 2019. Its Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel building in Beachwood is an anticipated LEED certified structure, meaning it’s built to internationally recognized standards for green performance. Larger systematic actions, some of which have not yet been embraced by Northeast Ohio cities and institutions, can also have an impact. One example is divesting from the fossil fuel industry and its

supporters. A Brooklyn, N.Y., synagogue, Congregation Kolot Chayeinu, received media attention in April for removing its savings from JPMorgan Chase & Co., making it the first U.S. synagogue to publicly divest from a bank or other corporation “to explicitly oppose the funding of fossil fuel and other related projects dangerous to the world in which we live,” as reported by JTA. Another initiative in the works for Northeast Ohio is the Icebreaker Wind project, which would be the first offshore wind facility on the Great Lakes and the second offshore wind project in the U.S. The project is being spearheaded by a nonprofit private-public partnership, Lake Erie Energy Development Corporation, whose president is Lorry Wagner. The project has been working its way through the Ohio Power Siting Board, a state agency that regulates the siting of wind farms, for about a year. “I think it is potentially transformative for this region in terms of sourcing clean, renewable energy and hopefully kickstarting a local economy around it,” Lefkowitz says of the Icebreaker Wind project. Still, change needs to happen communitywide and further, Lefkowitz says. Accomplishing that ultimately will further involve area Jewish groups and synagogues. “I really need to remind myself that all the time,” he says. “While individual actions are nice and can help establish behavior that is moving in a positive direction, where we really need to focus is on change that the community gets.” js

Just in time for summer, Graeter’s opened its first ice cream parlor on the East Side. The store, one of many new restaurant and retail offerings at Pinecrest in Orange, started scooping flavors like Madagascar Vanilla Bean, Dutch Milk Chocolate, Oregon Strawberry and Vienna Coffee on June 7 during a three-day window (June 7-9) that saw a flurry of openings at the new mixed-use development, among which were two other eateries: Shake Shack and BIBIBOP Asian Grill. Graeter’s, which also has a location at Crocker Park in Westlake, offers ice cream that’s certified kosher by Star-K Kosher Agency. Graeter’s ice cream is also available by the pint in several area grocery stores. Cincinnati-based Graeter’s has been around for about 150 years, and integral to its longevity and success has been the French Pot process it uses to make its dairy delights and its reliance on highquality ingredients. The end result is an array of tasty treats at each store.

Bruell dishes on CBS

One of Cleveland’s own received the national spotlight when Chef Zack Bruell was the featured guest on “The Dish,” a weekly food-focused segment that airs on “CBS This Morning: Saturday.” On April 7, Bruell sat down with the show’s hosts in front of a table filled with his mouth-watering creations, including a cassoulet, squash salad, pomme frites and lemon polenta cake. Between bites, the hosts asked Bruell about his culinary career. He recounted how he helped pioneer the development of “California cuisine” before bringing it back home to Northeast Ohio and described the meaningful relationship he had with his father and how it’s influenced and motivated him over the years. The five-minute segment, along with six Bruell recipes (including the cassoulet and lemon polenta cake shown on air), can be viewed at To read a 2013 Jstyle profile of Bruell, visit conducting-cleveland-cuisine.

Nearly simultaneously, Anthony Zappola and Jeremy Umansky ushered in a new wave of nosh for Northeast Ohioans to savor 50


Summer 2018


nthony Zappola and Jeremy Umansky didn’t really know each other until a few years ago, despite both growing up on the East Side and going on to become top-shelf chefs. Parallels between the two don’t end there.

Each built impressive culinary résumés that ultimately included stepping away from roles working alongside other high-profile chefs. After first working in New York City, Umansky served as general manager, larder master and wild food forager at Jonathon Sawyer’s Trentina in Cleveland’s University Circle neighborhood, and Zappola cut his teeth with Tom Colicchio at his three Craft restaurants in New York, Los Angeles and Las Vegas. He also was executive chef at Colicchio’s Heritage Steak in Las Vegas. Now, both are overseeing their own restaurants in Greater Cleveland – and they opened within a week of each other. Zappola’s Lox, Stock and Brisket in University Heights welcomed its first customers April 17, and the old firehouse door to Umansky’s Larder: A Curated Delicatessen and Bakery in Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood slid open April 24. By all accounts, both restaurants have gotten off to great starts – and that’s not the only similarity. For instance, both are at least partially influenced by the “new Jew deli” concept, though neither is kosher, and Umansky and Zappola say they aren’t trying to completely emulate the movement. And notably, despite the potential overlap in business, the chefs admire and share a healthy respect for each other.

East Side transformation Zappola, 38, says he wasn’t trying to tap into the “new Jew deli” trend, that wave of artisanal delis that apply innovative approaches to classic dishes and old-world recipes spreading across cities like New York, Chicago and Washington, D.C. In fact, he wasn’t necessarily planning on opening a deli. “I think that the space sort of determined what the content was going to be,” he says. “I always say there’s a lot of room for interpretation, there’s a lot of ingredients, there’s a lot of technique that you can use and just sort of be creative

with it, so there’s room for growth. That’s why I like it, more than anything.” The location – in one of the many plazas that line the south side of Cedar Road west of Warrensville Center Road – was previously a meat smoker-equipped barbecue joint. “The equipment was already here,” Zappola says. “The location of what it was and (with) the décor, it sort of looked like a sandwich shop. The smoker was obviously a big part of it, so then I said, ‘OK, well, we’re going to smoke our own meats.’” After deciding to scrap any ideas of doing his own barbecue, he landed on transforming the space into a delicatessen. He says Lox, Stock and Brisket serves items he would call “recognizable, but not traditional.” “I call it cured and smoked brisket, but it has a lot of pastrami flavors,” Zappola says. “It’s got that same brine you put with pastrami, same seasonings you put with pastrami, only it’s smoked and cured. … There’s not boiling or steaming involved, so I call it brisket, but it’s very recognizable, very characteristic of a classic pastrami.” The menu at Lox, Stock and Brisket, while filled with flavors, is intentionally short, consisting of 10 sandwiches and a handful of side options. That design fits Zappola’s philosophy on food: serve the best quality product you can, don’t cut corners, have fun, be creative and don’t overthink it. “We do 10 sandwiches and that’s what we stick to,” he says. “Stick to what it is, do as much as you can in-house, within reason. Obviously, I don’t make my own bread – I don’t have the capabilities (to do that) – but all the pickles and stuff, for the most part, except for the pickles served on the side, I make in-house. I buy my own cucumbers that are served with sandwiches, and I make all of our sauces from scratch.” So far, the only surprise for Zappola has been how thankful customers have been.

“We get a lot of ‘thank yous’ for bringing a Jewish deli back to Cedar Center (and) for bringing something interesting to the East Side,” he says. (Corky & Lenny’s original location was at Cedar Center from 1956 to 1994.) “When we first opened, I thought we would just get into our target audience, (which) was just a small group of people, (but that audience is) much more diverse than I thought – (many) more locals and people that have been going to delis for a long time,” he says. “The older clientele, they like it because it’s traditional in some sense, they know exactly the flavors that they’re getting. It’s just quality ingredients, and they know what it is and they’re happy for it and they live in the area – and we haven’t even scratched the surface (of what we want to do).”



Summer 2018

West Side retrofit Umansky, 35, says he – along with his partners, wife Allie La Valle-Umansky, a baker and pastry artist, and chef de cuisine Kenny Scott – were very deliberate about calling Larder a “delicatessen” as opposed to a “deli,” for various reasons. “The main reason being we wanted to emulate and hearken back to what a delicatessen was 125 years ago,” Umansky says. “This counter-driven service, cured meats and pickles made inhouse, not bought elsewhere and then cooked off. “We also wanted to have this feeling of a general store, (because) that’s what the original delicatessens were. In Europe, you find delicatessens that are very much like this. We wanted to emulate that,” he says. “We feel that ‘deli’ is a concept that grew out of the ’40s and ’50s diner culture.

He’s a culinary badass, there’s no ifs, ands or buts about it. I couldn’t think of another chef that gets deli culture in general, whether it’s an Italian deli or Jewish deli or whatever it is, better than Anthony.” Jeremy Umansky referring to Anthony Zappola

They’ve got these huge menus, 10 pages long and you can get anything you want at any time. That’s not exactly what we were going for with this concept.” Umansky says he and his co-owners feel “modern archaic” is the best descriptor for their approach at Larder, which is nestled between Rising Star Coffee Roasters and the Transformer Station in Ohio City’s Hingetown district. “Essentially, we’re using methods and techniques that in some cases are (about) 7,000 years old to create foods with modern sensibilities,” he says. “We’re

using these ancient practices to breathe new life into food.” He cites Larder’s pickles, particularly its Hungarian pickle, as examples of this style. “(Fermenting our own food) used to be something all families did all the time, as little as 60 years ago. ... In the past 60 years, we haven’t been doing these things, (it’s) getting a little lost or misconstrued,” he says, explaining his “modern archaic” approach helps fill that void. Umansky, a member of The TempleTifereth Israel in Beachwood, has heard people call Larder a “new Jew deli,” and

though he’s familiar with the term and doesn’t mind when it’s applied to Larder, he considers it neither “new Jew” nor a “deli.” “When we opened, we took the stance, especially when we settled on a West Side home, that we were going to be an Eastern European delicatessen,” he says. “We got feedback from people in this immediate area that they weren’t sure what a Jewish deli was. Some thought it was just for Jewish people, some weren’t sure what the associated foods were. “When we kind of look at what Jewish food in America is, virtually all of it, outside of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine, is Eastern European. So, we decided if we broaden ourselves and kind of encompass that whole Eastern European feel, we wouldn’t be persuading anybody or confusing anybody,” he says. “Those people who know what a Jewish deli is, they’ll walk in here and say, ‘Yes, this is a Jewish deli.’ The people who don’t,

they’re going to come in and be like, ‘Oh, this is Eastern European food.’” Most of the recipes used at Larder are essentially family recipes, occasionally tweaked for more modern pallets or cooking techniques, but still derived from recipes handed down in the owners’ families. As an example, Umansky cited Larder’s southern fried chicken sandwich, which was a recipe from Scott’s family. “We’ve got this killer fried chicken sandwich,” he says. “The flavor profile of it is (has) kosher dill pickles and we’re putting a dressing that is essentially sour cream and dill on the sandwich. It’s similar to ranch but not quite. We’ve all taken these aspects of our family heritage.”

Meeting in the middle Despite having all the ingredients for a delicious rivalry, Umansky and Zappola have formed a friendship. In fact, the two often joke they should trade houses or restaurants to shorten

He is as talented as they come. Jeremy takes it to the next level. ... He’s obviously very talented, very well-respected. ... It’s an inspiration for me to see him and see where he’s taking these ideas and this concept.” Anthony Zappola referring to Jeremy Umansky

their respective commutes. Zappola, an Ohio City resident, lives just blocks away from Larder, and Umansky’s Cleveland Heights home is only a stone’s throw from Lox, Stock and Brisket. The mutual respect the two share is evident, and they have only glowing things to say about each other. “He is as talented as they come,” Zappola says of Umansky. “Jeremy takes it to the next level. (Larder is) far more intricate than us. He’s got another whole level of research and development into this concept than I do. He’s obviously very talented, very

well-respected. ... It’s an inspiration for me to see him and see where he’s taking these ideas and this concept.” Umansky welcomed Lox, Stock and Brisket, and doesn’t see the dynamic between the two eateries as a competition. “He’s a culinary badass, there’s no ifs, ands or buts about it,” Umansky says of Zappola. “I couldn’t think of another chef that gets deli culture in general, whether it’s an Italian deli or Jewish deli or whatever it is, better than Anthony. To open up a place at the same time as us, it’s great.” js

SCOOP Pete and Mike Mitchell dish on what makes Mitchell's Homemade Ice Cream a Northeast Ohio favorite Story by Alyssa Schmitt | Photography by Michael C. Butz



Summer 2018


hen walking into an ice cream shop, and especially when trying to beat the summer heat, the last thing a customer may expect is to feel warm – yet that’s what happens at Mitchell’s Homemade Ice Cream. By opening the doors of one of the nine shops throughout the Northeast Ohio area, guests are greeted with the smell of freshly baked ice cream cones and a smile from across the glass case holding close to 20 ice cream flavors made from scratch. “We want people to be happy,” says Pete Mitchell, who co-owns the company with his younger brother, Mike Mitchell. “We want people to feel warmth and friendliness and helpfulness. We want everyone to feel that way, regardless of anything about a person.” That transaction, as one might expect, is easier when the currency is ice cream. Still, the Mitchell brothers, both members of Temple Israel Ner Tamid in Mayfield Heights, don’t rely solely on sweetness to brighten customers’ days. On the

contrary, there are many ingredients to their recipe for success, beginning with those used to create their tasty treats.

The source From where the brothers purchase ingredients is the responsibility of Mike, who says his decision begins with the best flavor but doesn’t end there. “We like organic, we like fair trade,” he says. “If we get it from the farmer himself or herself, then it’s better than fair trade because 100 percent of what we spend goes right to the farmer’s pocket, which is ideal.” Depending on what ingredients Mike is looking for changes where the farmer is going to be. For ingredients like strawberries or lavender, he has a list of go-to local farmers with whom he’s built

relationships since the first Mitchell’s store opened in 1999 in Westlake. Those close working relationships are what make it possible for strawberries to go from farm to cone within 36 hours of being harvested. They also help the brothers build community in Northeast Ohio, which is the market they say they don’t want to expand beyond. “We’re Northeast Ohio, (and) all we ever want to be is Northeast Ohio,” says Mike, 41, of Cleveland Heights. “These farmers we like to work with, they are close to us – and we like to have a very good handle on (what’s produced). It’s always fresh, (and) there’s a small carbon foot print, so that’s great. “We don’t want to take this any further, we don’t want to lose connection to our community. This is all about people and community.” If an ingredient isn’t native to Ohio, Mike looks both nationally and internationally to find partners that meet the company’s standards. Suppliers

from outside the country can prove troublesome as there are instances of indentured servitude around the world. “With chocolate farmers, for example, there’s a lot of things about chocolate farming we’re not OK with,” he says. “We want to be part of buying chocolate responsibly and helping people through our purchases instead of hurting people through our purchases.”

The flavor Once the ingredients are secured and put together at Mitchell’s Homemade Ice Cream’s flagship store in Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood, it’s ready to serve. On the menu this summer are flavors like Campfire S’mores, Fresh



Summer 2018

Peach, Lavender Honey, Coconut and Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp – all kosher certified (along with the other flavors) by Quality Kosher Supervision in Canton. No matter the ice cream, the taste has to be just right, which is why finding organic ingredients is so important to Mike’s recipes. Once he finds a supply of an ingredient, like a perfectly ripe fruit, he says the flavor is incomparable to any artificial flavoring. “So much good, ripe fruit is like candy – and we should say candy is like good ripe fruit actually,” he says. “For example, our Raspberry Sorbet ingredients are fruit, water and sugar, so all that flavor comes from that fruit. ... You’re really getting a whole

lot of mangoes when you get a scoop of Mango Sorbet. You might think it’s artificial because the color is so fluorescent, but it’s not. That’s the actual color of the mango.” Mike bases whether a flavor is going to work on Pete’s palate. “Pete’s opinion is worth like 100 people’s (opinions) because he’s got a really good tongue,” Mike says. “If Pete doesn’t like it, we have a problem.” The journey to a new flavor can be short and sweet, but more unique flavors inspired by chance can take a few years to come to fruition. “We think about flavors intermittently all the time,” Pete says. “Something happens when it comes to the forefront, and we try to

get the ingredients and try to make it.” One flavor idea was inspired by a dessert Pete’s son, Ben, had at a Yours Truly Restaurant. “They still have the dessert, it’s called Berry Blast,” Pete says. “It was this huge goblet – it’s not urban legend – and it’s vanilla ice cream with heated-up berry pie and some whip cream on the top. The combination of mixed berries, vanilla ice cream and whipped cream was pretty good.” Ben wanted the flavor to be an ice cream, and after asking Mike to create the recipe for close to six years, it eventually was added to the Mitchell’s menu as Wildberry Crumble.

SECOND SERVING Beachwood and Solon locations, a newly opened Strongsville store and a store scheduled to open in 2018 in Shaker Heights’ Van Aken District, Mitchell’s Homemade Ice Cream has a larger presence than ever. Even so, there’s a sense of connectedness between all the shops the brothers hope will strengthen their bonds – and customers’ bonds – to Northeast Ohio. For starters, many of the stores have large windows or doors so as not to keep out what’s happening in the surrounding community. At the Ohio City store, they take this concept one step further by surrounding the production facility with glass walls and inviting customers to watch how their ice cream is made. Also, artistic photos of the fields from which their ingredients are harvested adorn the walls of some locations, connecting customers to farmers. Even the furniture in Mitchell’s stores is designed and made by local artisans. “What we like about our jobs is it feels very intimate and personal, and we have relationships with the people that play a part in Mitchell’s,” says Pete, 47, of Solon. “We have relationships with the customers, the communities we serve, and the team members who work in the shops and the kitchen. We have relationships with local Northeast Ohio farmers and skilled craftspeople.” It’s because of this strong connection that the brothers don’t want to expand past Northeast Ohio or even distribute pints outside the area. By staying local, the



Summer 2018

brothers feel they can have a greater, more meaningful impact and true to tikkun olam values they were raised with as children in University Heights. “There’s so much more opportunity to do meaningful things as a small company as you sort of have more stability in the market,” Pete says. “Some companies may stay focused on how to keep increasing revenue, profitability or numbers and data, but what brings us the most satisfaction and what drives us still almost 19 years after we opened our first shop is the way we affect people.”

Summer 2018

For renter and developer alike, One University Circle means opportunity

Story by Carlo Wolff Photography by Michael C. Butz


little more than two years ago, Mitchell Schneider of First Interstate Properties and James Petros of Petros Homes broke ground on One University Circle, the first new highrise apartment building in Cleveland’s University Circle neighborhood in more than 40 years. Now, One University Circle is coming to life – fast. The $116-million, 20-story complex on Euclid Avenue between Stokes Boulevard and Stearns Road was 49 percent leased as of mid-June, a mere two months after it became available for occupancy, Schneider says. “It’s been very, very warmly received,” says the Solon resident, who also developed Oakwood Commons in South Euclid and Legacy Village in Lyndhurst, where First Interstate is based. Constructing One University Circle was a 26-month project that took place as scheduled and on budget, he says. Built on the former site of the Children’s Museum of Cleveland, which moved to East 38th Street and Euclid Avenue, it occupies 1.3 acres of a 1.9-acre lot owned by University Circle Inc. The developers have a 99-year lease on the land, with an option for another 99. “I hope the building is immortal,” quips Schneider, who attends Congregation Shaarey Tikvah in Beachwood. About 135 of the 276 units in the crescent-shaped building designed by Dimit Architects are reserved for move-in, from the smallest units (about 525 square feet) to the largest (the penthouse, about 5,000 square feet). More than four-fifths feature terraces or balconies. Rents span from about $1,395 for a studio to about $4,495 for a three-bedroom unit. One University Circle is open, active and more than he envisioned, Schneider says. “It’s not often that a building turns out better than the renderings, but in this case the building is more beautiful than any picture,” he says. Like other recently built or renovated luxury apartment buildings in Greater Cleveland, One University Circle features a fitness center, concierge services and an outdoor pool. It also boasts a glassed-

in rooftop amenity deck containing an urban vegetable garden; the latest in sleek, energy-efficient appliances and utilities; private parking for every resident; and a dog wash station for four-legged friends. The palette is warm and honeyed, with splashes of color accentuating the creative, occasionally whimsical wall décor. And if the interior is soothing and streamlined, the exterior is dynamic, even curvaceous. The balconies and terraces that protrude from many of the units keep the eye moving. At 234 feet in height, the building is not only imposing up close, it’s visible from afar. Not to belabor the obvious, but location is the key to One University Circle’s appeal. It’s near two of the three major hospital systems and all the museums in University

Circle, and it’s a walk away from Little Italy, Uptown and a variety of eateries. It’s virtually across the street from Case Western Reserve University and a few blocks west of the Cleveland Institute of Art. It’s also a straight shot downtown via the Healthline (a bus stop is in front of the building) and a brief automobile ride to Legacy Village, Beachwood Place or Pinecrest in Orange. One University Circle is not in downtown Cleveland, which means it isn’t surrounded by a high-density population. It’s Cleveland’s East Side, and the views get better the higher you go; rent the penthouse and you can see Lake Erie. It’s at the heart of one of the key cultural hubs in Cleveland.

Striving for a mixed community One University Circle units are being rented to Case Western undergraduates, graduate students in the general education program as well as medical programs, exchange students, doctors from all three major hospital systems, executives from the many institutions in University Circle and businesspeople who are empty nesters, Schneider says. In addition, some retirees are selling houses and renting apartments in One University Circle. One such couple is Jeff and Sue Ellen Korach of Shaker Heights. He’s 76, she’s 73, and both are retired. They attend Suburban Temple-Kol Ami in Beachwood. Jeff spent 13 years as president of Tremco Inc., a Beachwood-based roofing supply company. Sue Ellen sold five Body Shop franchises, several of them local, in 1997. They’ve lived in their Shaker Heights home for 40 years and are moving into a three-bedroom unit in One University Circle in mid-August. They wanted the space to accommodate visiting family; they raised two

generations in their three-story Shaker Heights home – which they plan to sell – and now it’s time to leave, time for a different kind of lifestyle. “We got tired of upkeep with a sixbedroom house, a big swimming pool and all that,” says Jeff. “We wanted a more simplified life here in Cleveland.”

Climbing stairs is “no fun anymore,” says Sue Ellen. “It was time to simplify.” The decision to move into the city wasn’t that long in coming, Sue Ellen suggests. “Our kids have moved away, and it was just time,” she says. “It was a big decision to move away from Shaker, and this is the first time we’ve really been tempted.”

FEATURE STORY Although the Koraches know Mitch Schneider, “it was our son who knew him better and told us about this project a number of years ago and suggested we might find it interesting, which we did,” she says, referring to Randy Korach, a former Tremco executive like his father. It wasn’t just fatigue that motivated the move. It was the appeal of something new, of living in a stimulating urban environment. “It’s beautiful,” Sue Ellen says of University Circle. “It’s culturally exciting. It has a lot of action going on, and we want to be part of it – a lot of new stuff and a lot of old stuff. We wanted to be part of what was going on down there.”

Jeff has never lived in the city, he adds, and it is high time he did. To the Koraches, who spend half the year in Florida, moving into a community of all different types and ages at One University Circle is an adventure. “We’re moving because we’re qualified empty nesters with children and grandchildren who lived in the suburbs most of our lives and decided that we thought this area was really exciting and new and we wanted to be part of it,” Sue Ellen says.

More to come What to do with the undeveloped six-tenths of an acre on the One

University Circle plot is up in the air, says Schneider, adding he wants to give his new apartment building “a little time to stabilize.” In addition, some 4,000 square feet on the first floor of this layered, aesthetically provocative and stylish building are yet to be occupied, likely by food service, perhaps retail or possibly a business. “We want to make sure we home in on our plans for Phase 2 before we go forward with retail in that space,” Schneider says. Whatever the decision, there’s no doubt One University Circle will go forward. js

By Becky Raspe Living rooms and family rooms are typically the most comfortable and casual spaces in a home. But if you feel a dĂŠcor element is missing, consider mixing metallic accents with bright, bold colors. The colors add life and spice up the space while the metallic accents offer cool and calm effects for balance. We all want a space in which to comfortably unwind, and with this trend, you can do it in style.

Pinecrest posh New furniture stores at Pinecrest are bound to inspire summer home design, furniture ideas By Amanda Koehn


une saw the opening of several stores at Pinecrest, a new mixed-use development in Orange, and in the mix were four stores specializing in fashionable furniture. Two of the shops are new to Greater Cleveland – West Elm and locally owned Laura of Pembroke – while the other two, Williams-Sonoma and Pottery Barn, already have East Side locations. The four stores all offer something different to regular customers who may have shopped at other locations as well as to those unfamiliar with the brands.

Laura of Pembroke The family-owned retail boutique, which is known for its home furnishings, lighting options, and women’s fashion and accessories, opened its second store June 7 at Pinecrest, 200 Park Ave.



Summer 2018

The business first opened in Rocky River in 1987 and moved to Canton in 1993. The owners wanted to expand and found Pinecrest the ideal setting. Co-owner Lauren Bosworth says what’s special about the store is it has a range of items at different price points, such as dresses ranging in price from $30 to $600. “We try have that lowmedium-high price point across all of our categories,” she says, adding they also have full interior design services.

Laura of Pembroke

She calls the store’s general style “eclectic,” explaining they tend to have pieces with unique features rather than just the basics. The aesthetic ranges from ultra-contemporary to French country classic. Notably, she says her family of co-owners has put together an experienced staff to work with customers in the new store.

“I’m really excited about this team we have put together,” she says. “I think they will cater to the customers really well, they all come from very experienced retail backgrounds and have a wealth of knowledge about fashion and retail in general, so I think our customers are absolutely going to love them and help them find kind of exactly what they need.”

ROOM SERVICE West Elm The contemporary furniture store West Elm opened June 7 at 411 Park Ave. with bright, seasonal designs likely to attract passersby. The only other West Elm location in Ohio is at Easton Town Center in Columbus. Its styles tend to be modern, and more than 90 percent of its products – furniture, outdoor items, rugs, bedding, lighting, wall art and items for babies and kids – are designed by the company. “West Elm will open in Pinecrest with its summer assortment of furniture, décor, gifts and the dedicated assortment of locally crafted products,” says Hannah Wickberg, West Elm spokeswoman. “The new modern summer concept evokes fresh air, clean neutrals, pops of color and touches of abstract watercolor found both inside and outside.” The store, which is part of the Williams-Sonoma family of brands, will also showcase items made by independent local artists, ranging from accessories to all-natural, small-batch simple syrups. That feature reflects an aim of the store to be connected to the community. “When choosing a new location, West Elm looks to places where our stores can make a positive community impact,” Wickberg says. “We look forward to helping make Pinecrest a bustling destination with our in-store programming, workshops and local collaborations.”

Williams-Sonoma The refined kitchenware and home-furnishings company Williams-Sonoma opened a new, modernly designed store June 8 at 211 Park Ave.



Summer 2018

The Pinecrest location will be different in a few key ways from its former location at the Beachwood Lifestyle Center (formerly La Place), says Shane Brogan, senior vice president of retail operations. “The store opening at Pinecrest is one of our newly formatted stores and will feature all the great products and experiences from our previous location,” he says. “This location will allow us to expand our connection to the Cleveland area and better service our customers.” The new shop will also offer a curated assortment of locally sourced food from chefs and artisans such as Maple Valley Sugarbush, Robert Rothschild Farms, Brucato Gourmet, Fire Spice Company, Randy’s Pickles, Pope’s Kitchen, Brownwood Farms and Ann’s Raspberry Farm. Also, its furnishings, inhome design and consultation services are also available, and the store offers cooking demos, technique classes and cook book author events.

West Elm

Pottery Barn Pottery Barn, which offers home furnishings and décor in a casual, comfortable style, opened its new store June 8 at 311 Park Avenue. The store aims to offer an enjoyable shopping experience and decorating ideas for every room in a home. The store offers a wide range of furniture, bedding, bath and outdoor items, window treatments, lighting and decorative accessories. Like West Elm, Pottery Barn is a member of the WilliamsSonoma family of brands. “Pinecrest is a vibrant shopping destination and we are thrilled to be a part


of the community,” says Marta Benson, Pottery Barn president, in a news release. “We look forward to providing guests with a curated experience full of inspiration, décor and design services that will help our

customers create their dream spaces. We welcome all of our neighbors to our new home in Orange Village.” The Pottery Barn store at Beachwood Place will remain open, according to the company. js
