Capital If you’re in the ‘neighborhood,’ stop in Columbus

By Michael C. Butz

City L

ike Cleveland, and like many other major metros, Columbus has its share of museums, theaters, major retail shopping destinations, and professional and amateur sports teams. It even has a zoo, too.

While those places are worth visiting in their own right, what makes Columbus unique are its neighborhoods. Like Cleveland’s downtown, Ohio City, Tremont and Detroit-Shoreway neighborhoods, which have become must-see stops for visitors and favorites of Northeast Ohio residents, Columbus is home to vibrant neighborhoods like the Short North, German Village and its own downtown district.

Short North Arguably Columbus’ liveliest, most artistic neighborhood is the Short North, home to 14 galleries (and the popular Gallery Hop the first Saturday of every month), 50 bars and

restaurants, and 65 fashion boutiques, home decor and specialty shops. “That’s the place to be,” said Beth Ervin, Experience Columbus communications director, adding that there’s plenty to choose from for foodies and fashionistas alike. “The stores, galleries and restaurants – everything you see there is independently owned, for the most part. That brings a different kind of vibe to the area,” she said. “Owners are usually on premise, and it’s a very personal approach – their style, their merchandise. It makes all the difference in the world.” Thanks in large part to current and former employees of major fashion retailer Limited

Brands, Columbus has the third highest concentration of fashion designers and workers in the United States, said Ervin, adding that dynamic “plays out big time in the Short North.” “Substance is one of the shops that really supports local designers. It has a loft space where designers work and it offers products in the store,” she said, also mentioning noteworthy shops like Brigade (sister store to Brigade at Beachwood Place), Rowe Boutique, Tigertree, Ladybird and vintage T-shirt maker Homage. Like Cleveland, which is home to Season 8 “Project Runway” competitor

Valerie Mayen, owner and designer of Yellowcake in the Detroit-Shoreway neighborhood, Columbus is home to Short North-based Season 5 competitor Kelli Martin, who’s involved with Alternative Fashion Week in the city, Ervin said. In addition to the eclectic food scene (“you’ll find some of the best restaurants there”), Ervin said the Short North offers unique drinking experiences, including Middle West Distillery, makers of OYO vodka and whiskey, and Brothers Drake Meadery & Bar. “They make mead using local honeys,” she said. “It’s really local – they don’t ship it out of the area or bring in

German Village With its brick roads and sidewalks and tree-lined streets, the Old World charm of German Village is evident, but “visitors shouldn’t forget that it’s a vibrant,

contemporary neighborhood where people live, work and play,” said Ervin, herself a neighborhood resident. “People come down and think they’re going to Colonial Williamsburg or something, or that we’re all dressed in lederhosen and making beer or something,”

she quipped. “It’s charming as hell, and a beautiful place to wander.” There’s less retail in German Village, Ervin acknowledges, “but not as little as people think. Because it’s so tucked away, it’s certainly a place you have to explore more to find all the bits.” There’s the venerable Book Loft, a delightful maze of 32 book-filled rooms, where every nook and cranny is filled with literature. (A small selection of Jewish-themed books can be found in Section 26 in the lower east wing.) There’s also Helen Winnemore Craft, Ervin said. “It’s contemporary American fine art and crafts ... but that’s not what the fun is about,” she said. “What’s fun – especially for the girls – is they have drawers of jewelry you can just poke around in. It’s a beautiful store.” After working up an appetite by walking through Schiller Park, visitors can choose from some of Columbus’ most well-known restaurants: Katzinger’s Delicatessen, Schmidt’s

(known for its giant cream puffs), The Thurman Cafe and Lindy’s. Relative newcomers to the neighborhood’s dining scene, Ervin said, include Harvest Pizzeria (“they make fabulous pizza in wood-fired ovens, which everybody does, but nobody does this kind of crust”) and The Kitchen, where people sign up with friends or strangers to cook and then eat a meal together. “It’s a communal dining and cooking facility,” she said. “It’s an interesting concept.”

Downtown As downtown Cleveland has experienced a rebirth in recent years, so too has downtown Columbus – which is most evident along its waterfront district, the Scioto Mile. New walkways, public art, fountains seating and swings make the district along the Scioto River “especially friendly,” Ervin said. “It’s been a really popular area for taking a stroll or having a meal or drink.” Bicentennial Park as well as nearby Columbus

Commons are home to a good deal of programmed entertainment, including concerts, movies and other types of performing arts, Ervin said. “It’s virtually guaranteed that something will be going on.” Also turning heads around the city is the up-and-coming district lining Gay Street.  “It’s kind of like the epicenter of the cool bits of downtown. It’s a very cool vibe and a very unique mix of retail and dining,” said Ervin, highlighting Cafe

Brioso (“one of the best coffee shops in town”) and Sugardaddy’s (“they’ve killer brownies”). As for retail, Ervin said shopping along Gay Street is “unique,” specifically at a wallet shop named Zeroz. “It’s a riot to visit because you can see (the owner) making them in the back,” she said. “They have a bunch of ‘George Costanza wallets’ that people have shed there in the store (because they’ve) gone with his.” js

In addition to scenic fall landscapes like Mirror Lake and the Oval, there’s the Wexner Center for the Arts, which from Sept. 21 through Dec. 29 will host “Blues for Smoke,” an interdisciplinary exhibition organized by The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. “(The exhibition) focuses on art inspired by the blues and features a lot of prominent African-American artists,” said Beth Ervin, Experience Columbus communications director. A hub of creativity and artistic experimentation, the center almost always has something interesting going on for visitors. “The Wexner Center also runs a lot of film series and performances,” Ervin said. “There are so many, you just have to keep your eye on it.” The Wexner Center, named in honor of Harry L. Wexner, the father of Leslie H. Wexner, chairman and founder of Limited Brands and a major donor to the center, is located on the eastern edge of Ohio State’s campus at 1871 N. High St. – Michael C.

City: University Heights Synagogue: Park Synagogue in Pepper Pike and Cleveland Heights Professional To Play: “My style is business during the day and casual at night. I have a stylist, Connor O’Malley, who works at Nordstrom. He dresses me in a lot of Boss, Joseph Abboud and made-to-measure suits. I go with slacks and a button-down or suits for work. To go out, I wear fitted tees, jeans, henleys and baseball tees.” Statement Pieces: “My big thing is shoes. I like custom handmade Italian shoes. They really set off an outfit. I like drivers, wingtips, double monks and anything that blends classic style with a little bit of flair. Watches are crucial to any outfit. My favorite brand is Panerai, and good sunglasses are important. I really like Ray-Bans.” Style Advice: “Get a good tailor. It doesn’t matter what it is as long as it’s fitted. Create your own fashion trends and do what works for you. The most important thing is to be comfortable.” Fall Favorites: Lots of layers; brown and olive green colors; cool jackets.

City: Lyndhurst College Friendly: “Since I’m in college right now (at the Columbus College of Art and Design), my budget for clothes is really limited. I try to get good deals at places like thrift stores, Forever 21 and H&M.” Go-To Outfit: A black, lacy A-line dress. Style By Design: “Certain (design) principles go into what I wear. I’m an art student and studying graphic design and learning about design principles and color and what looks good together, so it definitely goes along with my clothing.” Style Advice: “Keep it simple. Sometimes people overaccessorize and it’s too much. Go for just what you like and know that you don’t always have to be trendy. Going for classic looks is the best thing to do. One of my pet peeves is when people wear their shirts too tight. It’s not flattering.” Fall Favorites: Holographic stuff, metallic accessories, red and charcoal.

City: Pepper Pike Synagogue: B’nai Jeshurun Congregation in Pepper Pike A Tall Order: “I’m super-tall (5 feet, 11 inches). I do like fashion because of my height, but I am wary to go crazy. I wear a lot of solids with pops of color. When I find pants with a fit I like, I buy two or three in different colors. I have a long torso and long legs and I’ve had four kids, so it’s hard for me to find things that fit me right. When I do, I buy it!” Mom On The Go: “I wear a lot of athletic clothes during the day because I play lots of tennis, and I run. I wear a lot of Lululemon (Athletica) during the day because it fits so nicely and wears nicely. At night, I wear designers like Oilily, Alice and Olivia, Vince and James Perse.” Style Advice: “Splurge on something you love and cherish and that makes you feel good. For me, things that I buy and spend money on will be there forever.” Fall Favorites: Red skinny jeans, maroon, beiges, ’60s colors and earth tones.

City: Moreland Hills Synagogue: The Temple-Tifereth Israel in Beachwood and Cleveland Her Style: High-class and fashionforward with a conservative edge; current but not trendy; elegance with a touch of fun. Fashion As An Art Form: “I’ve always been involved in the arts, and I think fashion is an outgrowth of having an appreciation for art in various forms,” says Singerman, who went to Istanbul in July to check out new galleries and museums and who makes frequent trips to fashion-forward New York City. Style Advice: “It’s very important to know your style and what looks best on you. Don’t just wear something because it’s in fashion. If it doesn’t look good on you, and it doesn’t fit into your personal style, don’t wear it. Establish your own sense of style, and stay with it. I think people should wear the clothes, not have the clothes wear them.” Fall Favorites: Leather and chocolate; charcoal and burgundy tones; a fabulous jacket and dress.

ack Bruell talks like he was an ornery young man. Not only did he defy his father in his career choice, he turned his back on the military and used his gifts to create successful restaurants, beating the odds in that business.

e n

A compact man with a wry sense of humor, Zachary Ernest Bruell made his initial mark in Cleveland’s suburbs nearly 30 years ago when he opened Z Contemporary Cuisine, a minimalist restaurant with two incarnations: Tower East in Shaker Heights and Eton Chagrin Boulevard in Woodmere. Bruell is totally urban now, his restaurants all in Cleveland: Parallax, in the Tremont neighborhood; Table 45, in the InterContinental Hotel Cleveland on the Cleveland Clinic campus; L’Albatros Brasserie + Bar, in University Circle; and Ristorante Chinato and Cowell & Hubbard downtown. In late July, he opened Dynomite, a walk-up burger joint, in the glass pavilion on Star Plaza across from Cowell & Hubbard. All of his establishments feature open kitchens. As Bruell says, “You’re right there, front and center.” Bruell notes the failure rate of restaurants is 90 percent within six months of opening. Bruell considers himself a pioneer in Cleveland’s acclaimed fine dining scene, also known for such players as Michael Symon, Jonathon Sawyer – and Doug Katz, who apprenticed with Bruell at the first Z when Katz was 14. Bruell also views himself as part of a team, a conductor rather than a player. That was not always so. The Shaker Heights native, who with his three sisters grew up in a home with live-in help, took his own sweet time to settle down. Until the 2000s, rebellion might well have been his middle name. A former scratch golfer (“I’m a shadow of my former self”) who’d rather

be on the course than anywhere else, Bruell was somewhat of a hippie. When he was a freshman at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, he quit the golf team because he wouldn’t cut his hair, as his coach demanded. Bruell also got the itch to cook that year. “The way I started cooking is when I went to Penn, first semester the food was so bad – Monday it’s this, Tuesday it’s that, Wednesday it’s this – then you start the rotation over again. The second semester, I told my dad, just give me the money for the food program and I’ll fend for myself.” Bruell had a hot plate. A kid down the hall had a toaster. They made a meal every day. Bruell gained 10 pounds that semester. Bruell was drafted after his freshman year and entered the Coast Guard reserves. It was 1972, in the thick of the Vietnam War. “They were just taking everybody,” including a “nice upper middle class Jewish kid who went from the Wharton

School of Finance to a boot camp in Cape May, N.J. I was in with a lot of people who had been in jail,” he says, laughing. “There was more freedom in jail than there was in this boot camp.” He celebrated his 20th birthday there. To mark the day, Bruell’s drill sergeant marched him into the barracks, told him to hoist his 80-pound duffel bag over his shoulders and run around the quadrangle until told to stop. “He had the rest of the company sing Happy Birthday,” Bruell says with a sideways smile.

Civilian Zack Bruell left the Coast Guard Reserve with a general discharge, one rung above dishonorable. When he came home, he told his father, a manufacturer’s

representative in the builders’ hardware industry, that he wanted to become a chef. “This was 1972, ’73,” Bruell recalls. “He looked at me and says, are you out of your f------ mind? He says you can make more money as a garbage collector, and at the time, he was right. … I wanted to become a chef so I could open a restaurant. I’m very independent, to a fault.” His father was more than chagrined when Bruell opted for a food career instead of taking over the family business. But over time, Ernest and Marjorie Bruell came to support their son’s achievements. Ernest died in 1984 as Bruell was negotiating for his first Z; his dad never saw any of his places. His mother, whom he took care of during her last two years, made it to all of them. Marjorie died in June 2012. Following the Coast Guard experience, Bruell transferred to the University of Colorado Boulder, earning a degree in business from there in 1976. “I hated what I was studying, but I knew it was important to have a college education, and I knew I needed that business knowledge,” he says. Although he first aimed his sights at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y., he instead chose The Restaurant School, a Philadelphia-area institution “for idiots like myself who wanted to open up

small fine-dining restaurants.” Bruell developed his sense of style in Philadelphia. Mentored by gay chefs catering to wealthy diners and entertainment folk, Bruell began to prepare and cook fusion food well before the term gained currency. He also developed a taste for Philly Soul music. How the food looks should sync with the restaurant ambience, Bruell suggests. “It’s dining as theater,” he says in a recent interview at Cowell & Hubbard, his restaurant at the heart of Cleveland’s theater district. “This is theater. And this was before that existed. Dining rooms back then were all very formal. There was no in-between. This was the in-between.” As a chef taking his cues from Lewis Bolno, who opened 20th Street Café, an all-white (the décor, not the clientele) restaurant off Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Square that catered to the well-heeled, Bruell began to conceive a restaurant of his own. “The whole idea of that restaurant was the same idea I had at Z: that the color would be provided by the patrons,” he says. “In Cleveland, people don’t understand that. Back then, there was no music in these restaurants. This guy, he was a window designer. That’s what this restaurant was. Imagine Soho or the Village in the mid-’70s. Things were changing.”

The West Coast beckons In 1980, faced with a variety of choices, Bruell moved to Santa Monica, Calif., joining Michael McCarty, whom he’d become friends with at the University of Colorado Boulder, at Michael’s, then considered one of the nation’s top restaurants. At 28, Bruell was the restaurant’s oldest staffer. Money was not an issue at McCarty’s legendary restaurant, where the average lunch check was $60, a lot of money – particularly then. “When price is no object and the customer’s going to pay, you can work with whatever you want,” Bruell says. “In 1980, I was working with white truffles, black truffles, beluga caviar, you name it. If it was in season in the world, we were working with it.” The advent of airfreight meant chefs no longer had to depend on rail. “You could ship something from Europe in two days,” Bruell says. “This is the exact opposite of what’s going on now. “Raspberries used to be seasonal. Now you can get raspberries year-round, because now when they’re out of season up here you can just go to the southern hemisphere. We were doing that kind of stuff before it was common. Our market was the world. There’s a huge expense to that.” While he’s not Mr. Local when it comes to ingredients, Bruell tries to use

Pumpkin From the patch to your plate, pumpkins are a popular fall treat By Gina Fabian and Michael C. Butz

C

hildren may enjoy carving pumpkins – or filling plastic pumpkins with candy and other goodies – but adults tend to have a different appreciation for fall’s favorite gourd-like fruit.

Namely, that appreciation involves finding ways to put pumpkin on their plates or in their glasses. While pumpkin pie is a popular choice, and while there’s been a proliferation of pumpkin-flavored beers in recent years, there are many other creative options – and Cleveland-area eateries are happy to provide diners with choices. “(Pumpkin) gives a wonderful layer of flavor. I often substitute sweet potatoes for pumpkin,” says Ruth Levine, owner of Bistro 185 in Cleveland’s North Collinwood neighborhood. Bistro 185 is home to both a

pumpkin soup and pumpkin martini (with a cinnamon stick that serves as a stirrer), which Levine says are inspired by South American dishes. “My daughter-in-law is from Venezuela. Her parents raised their children on pumpkin,” she says, adding that she’s also experimented a bit on her own. “If you can eat butternut squash, why not try pumpkin?” Levine says. “Plus, it’s grown locally, and there are many wonderful farmers to choose from.” At Burntwood Tavern’s South Russell, Solon, Rocky River and Brecksville locations, chef Ryan Scanlon prepares pumpkin ravioli using Ohio City Pasta, truffle butter, white wine and fried basil garnish. “Guests always ask for it, and we love to oblige,” says Scanlon, who came up with the dish for the restaurant’s first fall menu and has tweaked the ingredients through the years. “The dish has simple, clean flavors,” says Burntwood Tavern general manager Ian Hopkins,

suggesting that it be paired with a light IPA from Crazy Mountain Brewing Company. “It opens up the taste buds and allows the subtle flavors of the dish to come across your palate.” At Luxe Kitchen and Lounge, in the Gordon Square Arts District of Cleveland’s Detroit-Shoreway neighborhood, pumpkin fans will find lighter fare. Chef Kelly McGlathery creates the Fall Harvest Insalata using local baby kale, oyster mushrooms, pepitas (pumpkin seeds) and Gorgonzola Dolce with a

hLounges Cleveland’s speakeasy resurgence offers escape to bygone era By Madeleine Winer

T

hose who descend certain staircases in search of a drink in two of Cleveland’s most vibrant neighborhoods will find themselves going back to a much more secretive time. The speakeasy trend that’s made a resurgence in cosmopolitan cities like New York, Chicago and Las Vegas has found a home in Cleveland, where downtown’s Society Lounge and Ohio City’s Speakeasy offer patrons a mix of Jazz Age sophistication and Rat Pack swagger. Nestled on East 4th Street, Society – which when busy requires your name be put on a waiting list – greets visitors with sultry jazz rhythms that

jstylemagazine.com

at times match the rhythm of the bartenders’ shaking, stirring and pouring. Society’s drinks are made using top-shelf and foreign liquors along with syrups made from scratch, freshly pressed juices, and a myriad of herbs and spices. For larger parties, drinks can even be customized and served in punch bowls, says Joseph Frederickson, Society’s beverage director. “I like to find out each customer’s flavor profiles through just talking with them and seeing what they’ve liked,” says Frederickson, who sports a Salvador Dalilike moustache and adds a degree of showmanship to his drink mixing. “We make a lot of classic cocktails,” says Frederickson, mentioning Manhattans, Mai Tais, mojitos and Moscow mules. “I try to see the recipes at the root and start off with simple ingredients. I start with the basics and improve from there.” Society’s most popular drink is its Fourth Street

Sour, made with houseinfused rosemary vodka and hand-pressed lime juice. Frederickson tops it off with Chilean red wine and a rosemary sprig he burns to intensify the rosemary aromas. As for the atmosphere, it hearkens back to a time when the spirits were high proof, care was crafted into each cocktail and underground hideaways were kept on the down low. Smartphones are tucked away for face-to-face socializing, large parties convene around small tables, and brushing elbows with the fellow next to you at the lively, crescent-shaped bar is common. The dress code is as loose as ’20s morals. Young professionals and Baby Boomers alike come dressed in high heels, flats and casual evening wear; their counterparts in oxfords, polos, khakis and buttondown shirts – with other styles in between. Harley Magden, cofounder of Society along

with his brother, Aaron, and friend Andrew Pucella, said he’s happy to see his modern speakeasy offer an unparalleled before-and afterdinner drink experience. “We wanted to challenge ourselves and bring something totally different to Cleveland,” says Magden, who graduated from Solon High School and was a member of Anshe Chesed Fairmount Temple in Beachwood before moving to Washington, D.C. “We saw a need for a different type of atmosphere missing on East 4th Street. We did a lot of research and were inspired by the speakeasy-style lounges of New York and Chicago that brought back the idea of vintage cocktails of the Prohibition era.” Magden recalled finding a New York City speakeasy called Please Don’t Tell. “We couldn’t find it, and we didn’t know where we were. You had to go through this cigar and coffee shop, go downstairs to this telephone booth, pick up a phone and

a door opens on the side of the telephone booth to let you in,” says Magden, adding he and his partners opted for a less “extreme” approach so Clevelanders could more easily enjoy Society Lounge. An edgier speakeasy experience can be found along West 25th Street in Ohio City, where a glass chandelier at the back of McNulty’s Bier Markt signals when the aptly named Speakeasy is open for business. When the chandelier is illuminated, those in the know follow the downwardpointing hand projected onto the neighboring wall to escape the glass-clanging crowd of the Belgian beer hall for the Prohibitionera hideaway’s candle-lit existence. Guests are greeted by a few “rules” at the bottom of the staircase: “Only those with class shall enter. Gentlemen shall behave like

36 Jstyle

Fall 2013

gentlemen. Ladies shall be ladylike. No rabble rousing or tomfoolery. No hooting or hollering. Attitudes and hats must be left at the door. … Respect the barkeep.” “It was originally built as the sales department of the Fries & Schuele department store,” owner Sam McNulty says of the space, adding that during restoration of the building, which includes the McNulty-owned Bier Markt and Bar Cento, workers discovered a hollow section of the staircase, broke though and found a tiny room with shelves full of liquor bottles. “It was like an Indiana Jones moment,” says McNulty of the room, which now serves as Speakeasy’s liquor closet. “We asked around about it, and one family that comes in said their grandparents’ parents and their grandparents both worked at the department store, and sure enough, during

Prohibition, it was rumored that if you went down to the sales department, other sales were going on than those in the department store.” Its roots served as inspiration for McNulty and his staff when they decided to adapt the speakeasy concept to the space. “It was born to be what it is,” says Michael Berkowitz, assistant general manager for McNulty’s Bier Markt, about the atmosphere of Speakeasy. Its rustic, wooden stools and benches, dotted with crowds of cocktail-wielding 20-somethings – who dance to edgy electroswing versions of Ella Fitzgerald hits and Irving Berlin’s “Puttin’ on the Ritz” – lead up to the bar where Adam Gullett uses ingredients from the West Side Market to create his craft cocktails. “We like to use local product as much as we can,”

says Gullett. “We try to keep the fake syrups out of it. Sometimes we make our own syrups with different infusions in there. Not a lot of people around here are doing that.” Beneath the bottles of top-shelf liquor perched on a free-hanging shelf, Gullett concocts two of the cocktails on Speakeasy’s summer platter: the Hey Arnold, a spin on the classic bee’s knees cocktail made with London dry gin, Jorgensen’s Apiary honey from Olmsted Falls, English breakfast tea, lemon rind and a splash of Lillet Blanc, a French aperitif; and the Wasted Mason, made with Watershed vodka from a distillery in Columbus, freshsqueezed orange juice for good flavor and a bit of acid, and some sugar and Earl Grey tea. “I like the balance of bitter and sweet,” he said. “That’s what I look for in my cocktails.” js

atisyahu is on a roll. Not only is he on tour, he’s recording a new album at Studio G Brooklyn (the “G” stands for the Brooklyn neighborhood of Greenpoint) and talking about “Spark Seeker,” the first album he has released since he and his family relocated to Los Angeles from Brooklyn’s Crown Heights section two years ago.

Matisyahu is a thoughtful man who takes pains to make himself clear. Which isn’t that easy when you’re an artist who has made a career of upending expectations and mashing up styles. Matisyahu and his band, Rebelution, came to Cleveland for “Fall Kickoff 2013: #TTB (Thinkin’ Throwback),” a BBYO program on Sept. 1 at the Mandel Jewish Community Center in Beachwood. Matisyahu launched a six-week tour Aug. 7. He does not perform on Shabbat. Formerly known for performing in Chasidic clothing – including a black kipah with tzitzit ritual fringes rocking beneath his white shirt – Matisyahu has changed. He is clean-shaven now, his clothing casual. He no longer feels the need to adhere to Orthodox ritual, he suggested.

On Dec. 13, 2011, Matisyahu, who made himself into a unique poster boy as a bearded, Chasidic Jew when he released his debut, “Live at Stubb’s,” in 2005, posted a beardless picture of himself on Twitter, adding these comments on his website: “No more (Chasidic) reggae superstar. Sorry folks, all you get is me … no alias. When I started becoming religious 10 years ago it was a very natural and organic process. It was my choice. My journey to discover my roots and explore Jewish spirituality – not through books but through real life. At a certain point I felt the need to submit to a higher level of religiosity … to move away from my intuition and to accept an ultimate truth. I felt that in order to become

a good person I needed rules – lots of them – or else I would somehow fall apart. I am reclaiming myself. Trusting my goodness and my divine mission.” The image and such comments gave him a new profile and restored him to pop consciousness. Now Matisyahu, known for blending Jewish themes with reggae rhythms and beatbox accents, is firing on all cylinders, musical and otherwise. He also recently launched a YouTube campaign, “Love Like a Warrior – Stands for Change,” a nonprofit group designed to promote a non-judgmental, inclusive society. The campaign, which ran in May, served as a preview for “Spark Seeker,” which was released in July. It invited musicians to craft their own versions

of “Live Like a Warrior,” his newest single, to spread messages deploring bullying and encouraging selfempowerment. Matisyahu, who was born Matthew Paul Miller in West Chester, Pa., 34 years ago, recently devoted 15 minutes of his crammed schedule to speak with Jstyle. Actually, the phone interview took 18 to 19 minutes, the limit his publicist allowed (he had another phoner scheduled immediately afterward), but he could’ve gone on longer. He essentially addressed one question: Why did he “feel the need to submit to a higher level of religiosity?” The conversational thread follows. One reason he joined the Lubavich movement and became a Chasidic Jew was to forge a deeper bond with God, he says. But

the motivation was more complex. “My initial attraction with Judaism, which wasn’t necessarily based about the religion, was more in a kind of desire for connection with God and with Jewish spirituality and a search for my identity,” he says. When he began to shift from his Reconstructionist upbringing to the Orthodox framework, he says, he was already on the way “to spirituality or a path towards God and I had had some rich experiences with Judaism” and started “to explore more in depth the spiritual side of Judaism which came in and out of connecting with the religious side.” His search included visiting various synagogues; consider it a spiritual form of window-shopping. “I wanted to learn how to

He was trying to unite the inner and outer man, the prayer with the image. The journey was lonely – until he connected with a chabad rabbi, entered into the Orthodox community of Crown Heights, and religion and the rules began to synchronize. His quest also entailed a form of discipline. He had “lived a little bit of a wild kind of life,” Matisyahu says, and felt guilty about things. Religion kicked in as he attempted to forge a life that did not involve “sex, drugs, that kind of stuff,” and he came

42 Jstyle

Fall 2013

to embrace Orthodox Judaism. “There was no going halfway,” he says; he couldn’t live by some rules but not others. What was the most difficult part of shedding his Hasidism? It’s not a matter of parts, he says, but of incremental, below-the-surface changes. “Over the span of 10 years, from the time I became religious to that day, there was a lot of movement for me,” not all of it visible. “Even though I had sort of started to interpret Judaism in my own way and begun to loosen up on some of the rules and focus on a lot of different aspects,” there was a “shift where I really let go of the idea … I stopped trying to work within the guidelines of Orthodox Judaism. “I shifted from seeing

the religion and the rules as actual rules to it being more of a guideline. It’s like when you’re talking to God straight up there are no rules. The guidelines are supposed to bring you to that.” Shedding Orthodox strictures and trappings was liberating, he suggested. His shaving was an expression “that this is no longer about transgression or sins, that the laws are not about God expecting us to do something. It’s no longer that God wants us to be a certain way or to do certain things … and the goal is to talk to God. And I do. And once I felt like I had that, I felt like I didn’t necessarily need to keep fitting myself into the rules. “So this touring musician is who I am and I’m a creative person, but I was always trying to blend it in.

Now I take from what I’ve learned – the Hebrew, the concepts, the ideas, the emotions, the feelings – and incorporate that, and that feeds my soul and who I am and the music that I make.” What he has learned is “to not judge. I’ve learned that as a person through this experience. No one has the answers.” As for fashion, “I still, like, love the idea and look of a Hasidic guy, not styled, like, in a designer way. When I first became Chasidic, it was all about the idea of why I did it, it was all about getting away from style. But then that became my whole entity; I was wrapped up in that.” By letting go in December 2011, “it was sort of the same experience, just happening in an opposite way.” js

an Biederman, who has lived in her house in Pepper Pike for 30 years, says she disliked her kitchen for about half that time.

“I never cared for the kitchen that much,” she says. “The cabinets were ‘builder’s special.’ When we decided to redo it, we ripped it all out. “It was a fun project.” And it was one that required thought and research, as shown by Biederman’s detailed binder. Completed by K & J Improvement in South Euclid, the project was a complete

makeover, with new cabinets, appliances, island, backsplash, walls and floor. The ceiling came down, too, adds Biederman’s husband, Jerry Herman. Taking out the ceiling made it easier to position all the new overhead lighting, he says. A much larger window over the sink adds to the brightness, Herman says. “The window made a

huge difference. That and the lighting were dramatic changes. They give the new kitchen a ‘wow’ factor.” Biederman agrees, adding she enjoys the expanded view of her backyard. The couple details many other upgrades in their new kitchen: all Schrock cabinetry, including antique white glazed cabinets (some with glass) along the walls, and toasted almond cabinets in the center island; granite countertops; one large sink instead of two smaller sinks;

Compelling

tile backsplash; stainless steel appliances and a refinished oak floor. The couple replaced wallpaper with paint, an electric cooktop on the former center island with a gas cooktop along the perimeter, and an older wall oven with a new stacked microwave and wall oven in a similar location. A rail between the kitchen and step-down family room was removed to give the area a more open look, Herman says. The kitchen’s storage

requires little bending and stooping. “Everything rolls out,” says Biederman, demonstrating the convenience of the cabinet drawers, pantry shelves, bins and more. She also loves her single large sink. “Around the holidays I have big pots and pans. I wanted one giant sink.” The refinished floor was a big surprise, Biederman says. “It was a light, bleached oak.” Once stained, “we couldn’t believe it. It looked like a brand-new floor.” The couple’s kitchen showcases just how far cabinets and appliances have come in recent years, according to David Hoenig, co-owner with Yackov Sasson of K & J Improvement in South Euclid.

“Every day there are more advancements to make life easier,” he says. “There’s no end in sight. Usually it takes longer to design because there are so many options.” Advancements include ultra-quiet dishwashers, more safety measures for cooktops, refrigerators that “do everything” with water, ice, and more. Homeowners also have multiple options with countertops, including granite and manmade granite; and sinks and “friendly faucets” in a range of sizes, Hoenig says. “Lights can make a big difference,” Hoenig says. “Put in as much light as you can. You can always turn it off or lower it.” For walls, most people

are now choosing paint over paper, Hoenig says. “They’re painting kitchens with different colors and textures that are easy to clean and give you the look you want.” Floor options also abound, Hoenig says, with hardwood floors, tile and laminates. “Laminates have come a long way. The laminates they now have are very durable and can be repaired. Placed over padding, laminate is a softer floor, easy to clean and very durable.” Many of the features of the Biederman-Herman kitchen are showcased at Faralli Kitchens in Willoughby Hills, such as the combination of popular white cabinets with mahogany, walnut and stained-wood finishes.

Faralli senior kitchen and bath designer F. Leah Heinsius says the latest high-end kitchen designs also feature large windows and a single large sink. “The biggest trend the last five years is the single-bowl sink, where you can lay down pots and pans,” she says. Other exciting features for kitchens include interior drawer lighting, steam ovens, quartz countertops, contemporary lighting fixtures, stone and tile accents, and polished nickel faucets. Contemporary kitchens are commonly being installed in traditional homes, Heinsius adds. “The minimalist look is growing in popularity regardless of construction style.” js

Rhinoplasty: Dramatic Yet Natural By Dr. Steven A. Goldman, M.D.

R

hinoplasty is the most complex of the common plastic surgery procedures. Contemporary techniques achieve a delicate balance between obtaining dramatic results and maintaining a natural appearance. Nasal breathing problems are also addressed so that patients can look and breathe better. New non-surgical techniques utilize injectable fillers to enhance the nasal appearance without surgery in select patients. Rhinoplasty may be performed for cosmetic or medical reasons. Medical procedures involve correcting the nasal bones and cartilage when they obstruct breathing. Such corrections may involve straightening deviation of the nasal bones, strengthening areas of weak cartilage or opening blockages. Rhinoplasty may be combined with septoplasty, a procedure that alleviates obstruction inside the nose caused by irregularities in the nasal septum (the thin wall of bone and cartilage that divides the right and left sides of the nasal cavity). Insurance may cover rhinoplasty and septoplasty performed to improve breathing. Cosmetic rhinoplasty must be individualized to suit each patient’s personal esthetic goals and physical characteristics. The goal is generally to achieve a dramatic but natural change. The procedure can be more or less aggressive depending on the patient’s goals, while maintaining familial and ethnic traits to maintain balance with the whole face. Common goals include reducing a hump on the bridge of the nose, decreasing the overall size of the nose, straightening deviation, elevating the tip of the nose, and making the nostrils smaller. Two basic rhinoplasty techniques exist: open and closed (also known as endonasal). Some surgeons use only one technique, but in general, open rhinoplasty is used for more aggressive procedures and procedures requiring refinement of the nasal tip. Closed rhinoplasty may be more commonly used for surgery being performed just to improve breathing or when reducing a hump of the nasal bridge without other esthetic changes. The most significant recent development in the field of rhinoplasty is the non-surgical rhinoplasty, in which injectable fillers, like Radiesse and Restylane, are used to enhance the nasal appearance. Asymmetries and

After

irregularities may be smoothed out. A small hump in the bridge may be minimized and the nasal tip can be elevated. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is performed in the office, with no anesthesia, like most cosmetic injections. The injectable fillers are not permanent, so the achieved changes are not either, but they generally last for several months. Prospective rhinoplasty patients need to be sure they find a surgeon who is a board-certified plastic surgeon with a special interest in rhinoplasty; the surgeon should have extensive experience with the procedure.

Time To

Focus on Mom By Dr. Gregory M. Fedele, M.D.

Y

ou’re an awesome mom, and a healthy one, because women today are more youthful than in years past. Women are taking better care of themselves with regular exercise, yoga classes, healthy diets, organic foods and basic clean living. You feel younger than your age! For today’s mom’s fast-paced world of chasing after toddlers, running a sports taxi service or keeping the family on the right path, diet and exercise can be essential to help you stay in shape and feel younger. But it’s never easy. Weight loss, lack of exercise, aging or especially the aftermath of pregnancy can leave your breasts and body sagging, protruding and out of shape. Many moms still have these “trouble” areas on their body and that “hot mama body” seems like an unreachable goal. It’s time to hit “reboot” for the active mom! Restart, reinvigorate and restore the beauty from those pre-child birth years. Get back those areas that have been changed from pregnancy, weight loss and aging. Moms who want a slimmer figure, flatter stomach, more lifted and fuller breasts, and a better-proportioned body may be looking for that “hot mama reboot” in the form of breast enhancement and tummy tuck. If your stomach is not as flat as you want it to be despite regular exercise, or if weight loss or pregnancy has stretched your skin out of shape, an abdominoplasty may be just what you need. Excess skin is removed and loose abdominal muscles are tightened to give you a flatter, smoother appearing stomach. Dr. Gregory M. Fedele performs an abdominoplasty to remove excess fatty tissue and skin in the lower abdomen to give you a shapelier midriff while tightening the waist, “repairing” the damage done by pregnancy or excessive weight loss. Your procedure will be tailored to your individual needs and incisions are strategically placed to be below the underwear line. Breast enlargement, or augmentation, can enhance and contour your breasts, giving you a shapelier figure and making you more confident in your appearance. Many women experience a decrease in their breast size and shape after pregnancy or with age. Dr. Fedele performs breast augmentation using saline or silicone implants to increase your cup size while providing a fuller shape to the breast. If you have sagging breasts or “breast ptosis” from pregnancy, age or gravity, a breast lift or “mastopexy” can lift your breasts into a more youthful position. If sagging breasts and loss

After

of breast volume are your problems, a mastopexy with an augmentation using an implant can give you larger, firmer and younger-looking breasts. To achieve a more complete “reboot,” these procedures can be combined to give you a more dramatic improvement to your shape and contour, giving you the look you desire in everyday clothes, dresses or even bathing suits. Moms, whether you are still tucking a toddler in bed, running kids to their sports or dealing with those challenging teenagers, it may be time to focus on you! Let’s get started on your “hot mama reboot”! For more information, please visit www.drfedele.com. Special package pricing for combined procedures makes them more affordable. Call today to schedule a complimentary consult with Dr. Fedele at 216-464-1616.

Dispelling

Plastic Surgery Myths By Bahman Guyuron, M.D.

T

here is a great deal of misleading information on the Internet that may deter potential plastic surgery candidates from undergoing surgery, even though it can be greatly beneficial to them. I will try to review these in an attempt to dispel some of the myths. One of the most common myths is that cosmetic surgery is painful. While there are rare cosmetic procedures that may cause some discomfort for a period of a day or two, most procedures, such as facelift and eyelid rejuvenation surgery, result in minimal to no pain. We consider any significant pain as a warning sign to look for a complication. Most patients experience some temporary numbness that will ultimately go away. Another common misconception is that rejuvenation effects are temporary. Surgical improvements are permanent. If someone undergoes surgery and appears somewhere between seven to 15 years younger, that person will always look seven to 15 years younger for the rest of his or her life. Another way to look at it is if the patient had an identical twin, the one who undergoes rejuvenation surgery would always look younger than the identical twin who did not have surgery. In essence, surgery turns the clock back, but doesn’t stop it. The clock ticks forward, but never catches up. Some also believe that rejuvenation surgery may accelerate aging. In reality, the reverse is true. Most patients develop a layer of scar tissue under the skin that is not stretchable and may better suspend the soft tissues, thus resisting the effects of gravity. A major fear about rejuvenation is looking different after surgery. The goal of this type of surgery is to erase some of the senescence effects and give the person a refreshed, more energized and natural appearance (unless a change in appearance is requested by the patient in addition to the planned procedure). If patients who undergo a rejuvenation procedure change their hairstyle or color, the apparent surgery-related changes could be attributed to those changes rather than the operation. The age at which rejuvenation can be started is another source of confusion. Those who notice signs of aging do not need to wait until they are “old enough.” The earlier rejuvenation is started, the younger the “base age” will

54 Jstyle

Fall 2013

be. To clarify: If someone who is 40 years old undergoes surgery and afterward looks more like a 30-year-old, 30 would be considered the “base age.” Ten years later, at age 50, that person is going to look like he or she is 40, and if that person wishes to look younger, he or she can have another surgery to return to the “base age” of 30. This is more desirable than having the same surgery at age 70 and looking 60 years old. Additionally, surgery performed at a younger age results in better outcomes, less chance of complications, and enjoyment of the outcome for a longer period of time.

HOT TOPIC:

Human Stem Cell Treatments Dr. Mark A. Foglietti,  D.O., FACOS

S

tem cells became part of general consciousness in the early 2000s because of the belief that controversial embryonic tissue was the richest source of these cells that were being used for research. Stem cells are capable of developing into any type of cell or tissue in the body, offering the possibility for use in treating a wide range of serious injuries and diseases. Due to the demand for embryonic stem cells and the dispute over their use, governmental regulation delayed progress in this area for a number of years. In more recent years, after further examination, we now know that human adipose (fat) is an extremely rich source for stem cells. This is important for a couple of reasons – the most obvious is that it removes the moral issues associated with using embryonic stem cells. A person’s fat can provide a substantial amount of stem cells, and utilizing one’s own cells practically eliminates concerns of the body rejecting them. Since the discovery of stem cells’ remarkable potential, there has been great excitement in the possibility of treating such diseases as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and diabetes, as well as therapies for degenerative back, hip and knee conditions. Another, lesser-known area of focus for stem cell use has been in cosmetic procedures, specifically in their ability to replace collagen lost in the aging process. There is growing evidence of the usefulness of stem cell therapy. Although much of it is anecdotal or testimonial, there is a rapidly growing number of researchers who are collaborating in legitimate studies of the benefits of stem cell use in medicine. There has also been a proliferation of stem cell treatment centers, predominantly on the West Coast, that have been conducting valid treatments on patients with remarkable outcomes. An important caveat: Not all of these clinics are appropriately harvesting the fat cells, then separating the stem cells and condensing them for therapeutic use. This is a fraudulent practice; therefore, investigation into any clinic offering such treatments is strongly recommended. The bottom line is that stem cell therapy has immense potential to slow or reverse a lot of human conditions. I

The Foglietti Natural ® Vector Facelift Technique

T

he Foglietti Natural Vector Facelift Technigue® is a method of tightening the face in a manner that gives the most natural and relaxed appearance after surgery. This facelift technique tightens the facial tissue under the skin in multiple directions or vectors. The tissue is then returned to its original more youthful position. The skin is then gently positioned over the naturally arranged tissue layer, resulting in a smooth and supple appearance, not the severe, tightened look often seen in facelift surgery.

The Foglietti Natural Vector Facelift is time efficient, taking only a few hours. The tissue is handled with extreme care which minimizes bruising considerably and facilitates prompt healing. The average recovery period is 10-14 days; this allows the sutures to be removed and any negligible swelling or bruising to diminish. Our patients can return to work in 14 days, safely and with confidence. For the most part, only minimal discomfort is ever reported after this procedure because it is done in such a precise and gentle manner. Surgery is performed in a state-of-the-art outpatient Surgery center with specialized nursing staff and post operative care. The Foglietti Natural Vector Facelift Technigue® is exclusive to The Cosmetic Surgery Institute.

Surgiplex Simplicity New facility offers convenience and privacy to plastic surgery patients By Michael H. Wojtanowski, M.D., FACS

S

ure, plastic surgery is less taboo compared to 20 years ago, but privacy is still paramount. Not everyone wants to announce they’ve had some work done. Ohio Clinic for Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery is attuned to what patients desire. That’s why medical director and veteran board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael H. Wojtanowski recently built the state-of-the-art Surgiplex right on the premises of his offices. Surgiplex is an accredited surgical facility designed specifically for plastic surgery patients. Surgiplex is nestled in the back corner of Westlake Corporate Park, across the street from Crocker Park. Surgiplex offers patients the privacy they want from the initial consultation appointment to pre-op, surgery and all postop appointments. “Cosmetic surgery patients don’t want to be in a busy operating facility where the waiting room is packed, especially when you may have sutures and bandages,” says Dr. Wojtanowski. “Our patients and skin care clients alike enjoy this privacy when they are getting procedures, peels and noninvasive treatments, too.” Plus, Surgiplex is on the ground floor with easy, private access in and out of the facility. Patients don’t share the facility with other non-cosmetic surgery patients. One facility, one surgeon and one staff – all dedicated to one patient. It’s quality, personalized attention. Surgiplex is very much like a freestanding mini-hospital. It is accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF). This means that all of the equipment has been properly examined by biomedical engineers and has met the high standards set forth by the AAAASF. It’s an industry seal of approval that for patients means a level of safety they deserve. Why is this important? Surgery of any kind is a big deal. Dr. Wojtanowski has been practicing for more than 30 years and has always put the safety and privacy of patients first. Dr. Wojtanowski founded OCAPS in 1980 when he first opened his practice. He has performed surgery in hospitals and surgery facilities that cater to all types of surgeries. His decision to build Surgiplex is based on experience. One thing Dr. Wojtanowski advises is that if surgery is performed in a simple exam room, a patient may want to question this. Why? In the unlikely event there is a problem, you want two things: A board-certified plastic surgeon who has been trained

58 Jstyle

Fall 2013

in handling any and all events associated with their specialty procedures, and a facility that is equipped to handle any and all events. The brand new Surgiplex is specialty specific. It is staffed with an entire complement of board-certified anesthesia personnel, surgical techs, surgical assistants and registered nurses, all with skills and training to contribute to the patient care team. Instrumentation and equipment are designed specifically for cosmetic surgery patients. They allow Dr. Wojtanowski and OCAPS to offer a more cost-effective experience. The environment where patients receive treatment is just as important as the skills of the surgeon they choose. With the Internet offering so much information, patients are researching every aspect of their desired plastic surgery procedure before they make decisions. While cost is often a factor, patients are realizing that their experience, safety and the continued training of their board-certified plastic surgeon are all major factors in their decision, expectations and outcome. Surgiplex provides patients of Dr. Wojtanowski the highest level of privacy and confidentiality available in the industry today. State-of-the-art surgical procedures, performed in a dedicated and relaxed setting, only add to the benefits and results delivered by OCAPS. Michael H.

Imagine By Dr. Paul Vanek, M.D.

I

magine brighter skin and a smoother complexion. Restoring the brightness and evenness to facial skin is no longer a galaxy far, far away! An innovation in light-based treatments of the skin, Sciton BroadBand Light laser treatments, can result in reversal of sun-damaged texture, blood vessel prominence, skin thickness and elasticity after a series of treatments. This revolutionary laser treatment, termed Forever Young, is available in Northeast Ohio at the practice of Dr. Paul Vanek, the regional luminary speaker for Sciton laser. Dr. Vanek has treated hundreds of patients with this revolutionary combination of laser wavelengths. He and his patients have enjoyed the results of skin rejuvenation that is simply not possible with a scalpel. Dr. Vanek, a researcher himself at NYU Department of Environmental Medicine as well as the University of California Berkeley, has extensive experience with bio-electromagnetics, the study of energies on human tissues. He has used that extensive experience, as well his degree in biochemistry, to evaluate emerging technologies, skin treatments and surgical treatments for his Cleveland-area practice. A recent study by investigators at Stanford University has demonstrated that a series of BBL laser treatments will improve the skin and keep it looking youthful. By restoring gene expression of aged human skin it can be made to resemble much younger skin. Over 1,000 genes became “rejuvenated” to be more like youthful skin, resulting in architecture resembling far less sun-damaged skin and more like youthful skin. What it means for you is that a regular regimen of treatment over time reduces and delays your long-term signs of aging in a way that looks very natural. The two-hour office treatment requires no injections. You will notice improvements the day of treatment in tightness and skin firmness. The laser treatment has no down time. “The revolution for me was that I could go back to work and enjoy my smoother skin the day of the treatment. It looked even better the next week and the next month,” said Kristin Kozar, a busy Lake County marketing director. “People have busy lives and they want results and value from their treatments,” said Dr. Vanek. With so many choices for consumers, Dr. Vanek always

Fall 2013

takes the time to review your choices of treatment tailored to your individual concerns. “Knowing that there are so many skin types, it is nice to know that Dr. Vanek takes into consideration my aging and personal concerns and my particular medical situation when deciding how I was treated,” said Sharon S. “He and his staff kept my budget in mind too.” If improving skin texture and signs of aging are a rising priority for you, you can have a complimentary Visia analysis of your skin at the time of your consultation with Dr. Vanek. “The Visia complexion analysis tool is another way that I can bring state-of-the-art technology to show you how your skin has improved with treatment,” Dr. Vanek said.

About the procedures performed Breast augmentation is the best option for breasts with volume loss and minimal sagging, but if breasts have excessive droop and loss of elasticity, you may require a breast lift (mastopexy) as well. Either of these two procedures will return you to a youthful appearance and “perky” breasts. Liposuction is performed to remove fat in the tummy, “love handles,” lower back and thighs. Tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty) tightens the abdominal muscles, and reduces the appearance of a protruding abdomen while removing excess skin and fat. Remember that even doing 1,000 crunches a day will not shrink loose belly skin! Most women can return to work after only one week, even after extensive procedures, but you can expect your total recovery time to be about six weeks. Any strenuous activities or exercise are restricted for two weeks. You will want to use a good sports bra for support and to help adjust to the new contour. In addition, a compression garment used to help support the new shape of your body. The Mommy Makeover is a personalized procedure; no two women are the same. Mommy Makeovers will

In My Closet: My chocolate-brown Pal Zileri winter coat. Shopping in CLE: J3 Clothing Co. Fall 2013 Must Have: I feel pretty set right now with what’s already in my closet. Fashion Idol: My dad. He always looked great whether lounging by the pool or heading to his office downtown. Signature Style: Vans, cords and a V-neck sweater. Favorite Fall Trend: Colorful watches and belts. Trend You Wish Never Existed: Pennies in loafers. Latest Fashion Purchase: Save Khaki olive cotton khakis. Fashion advice: My wife because she has great taste.

Stylish Clevelanders share their fashion tips, must-have items and favorite shopping destinations.

The Agnon School/private tutor Fashion Lesson: Don’t follow every trend – focus on what is right for your body. Favorite Fashion Season: I love the fall season because you have more options. In My Closet: Black cashmere turtleneck and True Religion jeans (all styles). Shopping in Cle: Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, and Mulholland and Sachs. Fall 2013 Must Have: Motorcycle leather jacket. Fashion Idol: I love Jennifer Aniston’s look. She always looks great without appearing overdone. Signature Style: You can usually find me in JBrand jeans, boots and tanks. Favorite Fall Accessory: I love the look of layering bracelets and necklaces. Trend you wish never existed: Gauchos – ouch! Latest Fashion Purchase: A Herve Leger anklelength bandage dress. Fashion Advice: My husband because he has great fashion sense and knows what looks best on me. Dress by Herve Leger Bangles by Roberto Coin from MANN Jewelers J3 Clothing Co.

Eileen Korey

The University of Akron, chief communications officer and associate vice president My Style: Distinctive, classy and comfortable. Fashion Lesson: Dress for both comfort and style, paying most attention to the waist up. (This comes from a previous career in television broadcast news – and I learned it for myself.) The only advice I was given that I still remember (don’t remember by whom) is the power of scarves to bring variety to any suit (and to cover up the popping blood vessels in my long neck). Favorite Fashion Season: I love fall colors but I don’t pay too much attention to seasons (when I was in television, three different consultants told me I was three different seasons!) because I tend to buy clothes and colors that work for me year-round. In My Closet: A gray tea-length two-piece dress that goes from work to cocktail parties to funerals and is the most comfortable piece I own. Favorite Boutiques: I tend to shop when on vacation, so my favorite place is Paloma Clothing in Portland, Ore., where my daughter lives. Locally, I often check in at Chico’s to add a piece to my wardrobe. Found a fabulous dress for my daughter’s wedding at YouTwo in Cleveland Heights. Fall 2013 Must Have: I must find a fabulous (and distinctive) tea-length black skirt (very hard to find this year). Fashion Idol: My dear friend, Drue Murman, is the most stylish person I know, with an eye that is truly a gift. She is “perfectly put together” no matter the occasion or the season. When she comments on what I am wearing, I am most flattered. Signature Style: I think people would say that my clothes are distinctive, not too conservative, and always with something memorable, whether it’s a scarf or different stitching on a suit or a fabulous pair of earrings. Favorite Fall Trend: A white sweater or scarf to complement some tasty color (like tangerine, green or purple). Trend You Wish Never Existed: Spanx.

Vicki Bronstein VB Fashion Consultants

Signature Style: Trendy, classic and personalized. Fashion Lesson: Show what is most flattering for each individual person, and always personalize your wardrobe – from Shane Limbacher, the owner of Studio L in Chicago and New York. Favorite Fashion Season: Winter. It allows more of a fashion statement with layers, accessories, boots and great coats!  In My Closet: Sweaters and boots, great shearling coat, and leather. Shopping in CLE: Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom. Fall 2013 Must Have: Accessories, shearling coat, leather, vibrant-colored suede, great pumps and thighhigh boots. Fashion Idol: Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. She is classic and iconic. She was everyone's idol! She started her own trend and everyone followed! Trend You Wish Never Existed: Big bellbottoms, overalls, and oversized, unflattering dresses and tops. Latest Fashion Purchase: A long, faded-out shearling coat, a bright suede coat, great chain belt and gold low-rise fitted jean. Most Trustworthy Source For Fashion Advice: Shane Limbacher, owner of a great showroom in Chicago. He has been my sales rep for more than 20 years and has never been wrong with my selections for clients. He has the right trends for every season.

Big Apple Tasty fruit takes center stage in fall and can provide unique family experience By Michael C. Butz

Fall 2013

A

s the cool air and colorful foliage of autumn approach, so too does the desire for fall treats that involve crisp, juicy apples. One needn’t settle for the mundaneness of buying apples from a nearby supermarket, however, when several apple orchards dotting the landscape of Northeast Ohio offer a more unique experience. One such is Brunswick’s Mapleside Farms, where consultant David Eyssen expects a bumper crop this year. “With all the rain this year, our apples will be as big as volleyballs,” Eyssen says. “Apples love water, and … we expect a nice crop of big apples with a lot of flavor.” September and October mark the “biggest time of year,” Eyssen says. “Down the hill in the orchard, we’re harvesting 7,000 to 8,000 bushels of apples during the fall,” he says, adding that Mapleside Farms grows 24 varieties of apples. “Some of our pickers can pick 100 bushels a day. They’re moving, but they’re not banging them up.” While Mapleside Farms

doesn’t offer visitors the opportunity to pick their own apples, Eyssen says, “We pick the apples and put them in 20-bushel bins, take them to the warehouse, and you bag your own apples in the warehouse.” Eyssen’s family owned Mapleside Farms for 80 years before new owners recently took over. What’s remained constant is the genuine – and family-friendly – atmosphere the farm provides. “We try to keep that down-home farm image, the way it’s always been in the orchard,” he said. “The new owners believe in that. They have three sons who are under 12, and they all have a ball there. “There are a lot of traditions here,” Eyssen adds. “There are parents who came out for years, and now they’re bringing their kids.” In addition, Mapleside Farms features the Apple House, its main retail outlet for apples, fresh cider, apple butter and other goods; the

Orchard House, a full-service restaurant; Corbo’s Bakery, which features the same sweets as its Little Italy location; spectacular views (“You can see 50 miles to the west on a clear day,” Eyssen says); a pumpkin patch and corn maze through which visitors can walk; and Little Mountain Creamery, which serves homemade ice cream. “Our original farm market is now an ice cream parlor,” says Eyssen, adding that flavors include pumpkin, apple pie and butter pecan. “I’m gaining weight just thinking about it.” Apple orchards throughout Northeast Ohio, including Mapleside Farms, tend to offer something for everyone. “The whole operation in the fall just explodes on weekends. It’s an exciting time,” he says. “Kids and families of all ages can come out and enjoy it. js
