Memorable moments y most memorable moment at Progressive Field came on July 14, 2002. An unlikely Indians hero – one of David and Goliath proportions, at least in terms of baseball – emerged that day. Rivera, who would eventually become Major League Baseball’s all-time saves leader and will likely be a first-ballot Hall-of-Famer. Rivera was off his game that day, however, and gave up two runs on four hits to start the inning. The score was then 7-6. After a strikeout and an intentional walk that loaded the bases, up to the plate walked third baseman Bill Selby. Indians fans would be forgiven if they don’t remember Selby, who played only three seasons in Cleveland and most often occupied a seat on the bench. But that’s the thing about baseball. It sets the stage for heroics in ways other sports can’t. With two outs in the bottom of the ninth and with two strikes against him, Selby smacked Rivera’s pitch over the right-field wall for a walk-off grand slam. Shocked

Faithful fans will recall 2002 wasn’t a standout year for the Tribe. They made the playoffs the year before, but in 2002, the team found itself transitioning from contending to rebuilding. On July 14, they had a losing record, were 10.5 games out of first place and days earlier had fired Manager Charlie Manuel due to a contract dispute. But all of that mattered a little less that sunny Sunday afternoon. I was at the game with my dad and the dreaded New York Yankees were in town. The home team fell behind early and was down, 7-0, in the sixth inning. But in the bottom of the sixth, Jim Thome hit a three-run home run to close the gap, and in the seventh, Omar Vizquel drove in another to lessen the lead to 7-4. In the ninth inning, New York brought in closer Mariano

disbelief was followed by sheer joy among fans. David struck down Goliath. (You can relive the game-winning home run at The Indians didn’t do much for the rest of 2002, but 15 years later, what I remember most is that homer, not the team’s record. That’s another thing about baseball. Whether you’re with family or friends, games at the ballpark are special and can create lasting summer memories. That’s why we held Jstyle’s summer fashion shoot at Progressive Field. As the Indians pursue a return trip to the World Series this season, our gem of a ballpark is the place to be this summer – a place where more memories will surely be made.

Aesthetic Benefits of Migraine Surgery By: Valerie Clark

Forehead Migraines

Migraines that occur in the forehead area are triggered by the nerves at or above the eyebrow, that become irritated by the surrounding muscles or blood vessels. During a forehead lift or brow lift, the muscle used for frowning is removed and the skin is gently stretched to soften deep frown lines. Removing the muscle decompresses the nerves, which stops or mitigates migraines. A technique similar to an eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) can also be used to treat migraine surgery for some patients.

Temporal Migraines

Migraines that begin in the side of the face (temples) are triggered by a different nerve. During a forehead lift or face lift, the nerve(s) can be freed if the patient has migraine headaches in this area.

Behind-the-Eye Migraines and Sinus Migraines


he latest statistics estimate that migraine headaches affect 16-22% of Americans, and many more are undiagnosed. Living with migraines is difficult, and medication does not help in every case. Dr. Bahman Guyuron dedicated almost 2 decades of his career to helping people with migraine headaches, after discovering the link between plastic surgery and migraine relief. Before Dr. Guyuron pioneered a surgical treatment option for migraine headaches, he focused on facial rejuvenation procedures. His training in plastic surgery at Cleveland Clinic and teaching experience and research there and at Case Western Reserve University has earned him a reputation as one of the best plastic surgeons in the world. In 1999, some of Dr. Guyuron’s patients reported that their migraines stopped after having forehead rejuvenation. This observation led to over 40 studies led by Dr. Guyuron to explain why and how this happened. He identified migraine trigger sites in the forehead area, and later found triggers in other areas of the face and head. Dr. Guyuron spent the last 18 years developing and refining techniques that give patients migraine relief with the added benefits of facial rejuvenation and improved breathing. Surgical treatment of migraines involves some of the same techniques used for the most popular facial procedures. These include forehead lift, septum surgery (a common component of nose surgery), eyelid surgery, and even some face lift maneuvers. The most common migraine trigger sites are in those same areas, and migraines predominantly affect women. Given that plastic surgery patients are mostly women, there is a unique opportunity to screen these patients for migraine headaches and provide a service that addresses both concerns.

Migraines that start behind the eyes or in the sinuses are related to a deviated septum, a partition in the middle of the nose. When performed alone, the surgery (septoplasty) does not change the shape of the nose. However, a septoplasty is commonly combined with rhinoplasty, which reduces or eliminates migraines. Migraine surgery was born from cosmetic surgery. If you are experiencing migraines and have an interest in facial rejuvenation, the aesthetic benefits of migraine surgery should be considered by bringing your migraine history to your surgeon’s attention. At Zeeba Clinic (Lyndhurst, Ohio), Dr. Guyuron screens his cosmetic surgery patients who have migraines to determine the frequency, intensity, and duration of their migraines before recommending surgery.

Look hot, stay cool By Becky Raspe Temperatures are rising – and it’s time to toss your jackets and long pants. This season, swimwear isn’t just poolside fashion. By simply pairing the right shirt with your trunks, you can dress up and dress down the ensemble. Loud prints and colors, paired with simple and uncomplicated pieces are perfect to get wet and wild next to the pool. Mix and match colors to look hot but stay cool. It’s all about versatility.

Experiencing anti-Semitism At a time when vitriol aimed at Jewish people is on the rise, two personal examples demonstrate how widely acts of anti-Semitism and individual responses to it vary Story and photography by Amanda Koehn



Summer 2017

usan Kellner, an employee at the United States Department of Labor and a Shaker Heights resident, was in her Cleveland office when she opened an email from her supervisor that made her feel “speechless, paralyzed and pretty distraught.” Her supervisor wrote he was working “like a Hebrew slave” in the email about scheduling and leave time. Her supervisor knew she was Jewish, Kellner says, and remembers feeling shocked he would say such a thing. She didn’t respond. “I was a term employee, I was looking to keep my job,” she says of the February 2011 incident. “There really wasn’t anybody to report it to, and so yeah, I kept silent, which is probably what most people do.” Kellner, 62, didn’t stay silent, however. By the time she received the email, she says she’d already been denied religious leave for Jewish holidays on multiple occasions during her time working in the federal government, which started in 2008. Thus, at about the time she thought her fixed-term employment as a claims examiner on atomic weapons accidents would conclude in January 2012, she sued, filing an Equal Employment Opportunity complaint. “You vacillate back and forth about whether you are going to do yourself more harm than good by doing it,” she says of deciding to take legal action. “It’s just really disconcerting to be in a big city where you think that diversity is embraced and

where people are worldly, and come to the blatant realization that it may not in fact be that way.” Anti-Semitism – stereotypes, prejudice and discrimination toward Jews – can take various forms. For many, it conjures visions of buildings vandalized with swastikas or the sound of one spewing derogatory remarks. But it can also be more subtle, as was the case with Kellner. She believes anti-Semitism was at the core of not only her supervisor’s email, but also being denied religious leave. While it’s well documented that antiSemitism is on the rise nationwide, it’s difficult to estimate how common Kellner’s situation is. An April Anti-Defamation League report showed an 86 percent increase so far in 2017 from the previous year, but such reports focus on vandalism, harassment and assault, and cases like Kellner’s are not typically included. How victims feel and react is equally complex.

Susan Kellner, pictured in her Shaker Heights home, sued her employer, the federal government, for anti-Semitic discrimination.

Joanna Levin stands on Lee Road in Cleveland Heights, near where she was when she received a round of insulting tweets for her pro-Israel activism.

Internet-fueled, politically charged As anti-Semitism rises, it’s also shifting toward partisan motivations, says Bradley Schlang, community relations chair at the Jewish Federation of Cleveland. “It’s a little harder to identify, because everything is falling within this political viewpoint,” he says. “There definitely are situations of pure anti-Semitism, but there’s also this graying of the

borders that becomes more challenging.” Anita Gray, Cleveland regional director of the ADL, also sees a shift. She says the rise of the “alt-right” movement – which the ADL says “encompasses a range of people on the extreme right who reject mainstream conservatism in favor of forms of conservatism that embrace implicit or explicit racism or white supremacy” – has brought about anti-

Gray Semitic internet harassment, citing a 2016 ADL report that identified 19,253 tweets targeting Jewish journalists. The ADL helps victims of antiSemitic crimes and reports incidents, but many cases of harassment are protected by freedom of speech under the First Amendment. “The hardest thing to deal with is the internet situation,” Gray says. While contending with anti-Semitic harassment “goes with the territory” of her job, Gray says one case particularly alarmed her. Someone called her office, asked odd questions, and afterward, Gray found a recording of the call on an anti-Semitic Facebook page. The recording was legal because only one party’s consent is required for recording calls in Ohio. “The whole Facebook episode really bothers me because I look at it as a total violation – you feel violated,” she says. Anti-Semitism also is morphing on the far-left political spectrum. Schlang cites the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement that seeks to put political pressure on Israel. While Schlang and Gray say all anti-Israel beliefs are not innately anti-Semitic, the matter can become blurry.



Summer 2017

One place where that’s happening is on college campuses, where there are often activist groups organizing on both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Tracy Turoff, vice president and general counsel for Hillel International, says the organization works with university administrators and students to ensure Jewish and pro-Israel students are “free to safely express their views.” However, on many campuses, it’s still an issue. “We are seeing anti-Israel protests being turned into disruptions and demonization tactics that curtail the voices of Jewish and pro-Israel students,” she says.

Complex issues on college campuses Joanna Levin, a 19 yearold former student at Kent State University, experienced denigration via social media, but it didn’t end there. During her freshman year in 2016, she joined the school’s Students Supporting Israel chapter after becoming interested in Israel issues from her cousin, who was joining the Israel Defense Forces at about the same time. “I didn’t think it would alienate me on campus,” she says, adding that although BDS existed on campus, “the

Schlang average student would know nothing about it.” Managing social media for SSI, Levin endured two separate incidents in which she received tweets targeting her and her pro-Israel beliefs. The first occurred after attending an SSI conference at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis at the beginning of the 2016-17 school year, when Levin posted on social media about the conference. Weeks later, Levin was observing the High Holy Days when tweets directed at her in relation to the conference began to flow in. “By the end of that day, I had like 21 tweets that were vulgar,” she says, adding that she believes she was put on a list or forum by anti-Israel activists and that’s where people – none of whom she knew – found her profile. She says while the tweets bothered her, especially since they distracted her from her studies, she knew all she could do was keep a record of everything and that the tweets directed at her didn’t violate any laws. A few months later, Levin left Kent State and moved back home to Cleveland Heights. Still close with SSI friends who were putting on an “Artists 4 Israel” free T-shirt event March 20 on campus,

Turoff Levin posted on her social media accounts that she wished she was at the event. Afterward, as she walked to work, she started to receive another round of derogatory tweets – which by day’s end totaled about 120. In both instances, some tweets attacked her physical appearance, while others made anti-Israel comments such as, “How do you abolish a country that doesn’t exist?” and “The words ‘support’ and ‘Israel’ should never be together take yo shit and leave #Palestine.” Other students posting about the event also received similar negative social media attention. Levin says while the tweets came in, she mostly felt bad for her friends still on campus who were subject to such animosity while they should have been able to simply focus on studies. She was also saddened by all the negativity. Moreover, over the course of the two incidents, Levin’s own confusion and pain began to evolve.

Uncertainty on how to respond is common Levin says she reached out to Hillel and the Jewish Federation of Cleveland, both of which helped her document the incidents and talked her through the experience.

One of the anti-Israel tweets received by Joanna Levin in response to her posting she wished she could attend an “Artists 4 Israel” free T-shirt event earlier this year at Kent State University.

Kent State Hillel, a pro-Israel and Jewish organization, tries to coach students through such issues and, according to its executive director, Adam Hirsh, the group heard about the communications Levin and other students received on the day of the Artists 4 Israel event. They have not confirmed whether any disparaging tweets came from local people or students but many are thought to be from around the world. While the tweets did not directly reference Jews and Levin doesn’t believe the social media attacks were directly anti-Semitic, she says the divide between pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian groups on campus – brought to the forefront by the social media attacks – led to an antiSemitic climate on campus. She says the divide damaged friendships and made it difficult to be outwardly Jewish. “I don’t usually think of myself as a victim in the normal sense, but I do think that because of the friendships that were ruined, the alienation of my friends and myself … Jews were being targeted,” she says.



Summer 2017

Hirsh says Levin possibly experienced more criticism for her pro-Israel activism and was more attuned to divides between student beliefs than the average Jewish student who is not associated with SSI. And while anti-Semitism and anti-Israel beliefs are different, feeling personally attacked is always painful. “It may not be antiSemitism, but that doesn’t mean you don’t feel personally attacked or uncomfortable by Israel being judged,” he says. Concealing one’s Judaism in reaction to a prejudicial situation may make sense if one believes, even subconsciously, doing so could prevent uncomfortable situations from reoccurring. Like crime victims, one may feel as though they did something wrong and try to stop such a situation from happening again – even if having such control is impossible. Schlang also says Levin’s experience of discomfort being outwardly Jewish and unsure how to respond when anti-Semitism occurs is a common reaction. “It could be, ‘I don’t feel comfortable carrying my Judaism, practicing my

religion or sharing my views because of the strong opinions around me,’” he says. Levin also says the experiences led her to be confused about her beliefs about Israel politics. She felt like no students involved were accessing accurate and unbiased information on Middle East conflicts, which she says contributes to misinformation among all parties and makes her skeptical. “People learn how to be opinionated for the first time in their lives on college campuses, but the point of being there is learning how to empathize – and that’s not what happened,” she says. Thus, unlike Kellner’s explanation of being oppressed by anti-Semitism at work, Levin contended with the idea that her views may oppress those of others, for which she felt guilty. “I felt like good people who had a lot of pain and a lot of anger were mad at me, and I wanted to know why,” she says of friends and acquaintances who supported pro-Palestinian groups. Levin’s internal questioning is specific to her experience, and others in similar situations may take the opposite approach, instead further entrenching themselves in their beliefs. Everyone’s way of dealing is different, to some extent, which leads to another point

of contention Levin faced. She said sometimes on campus she was confronted with the stereotype that one Jewish student’s opinion is a stand-in for all. “That’s probably the most prevalent feeling of discrimination on a day-today basis,” she says. Turoff agrees such an illinformed stereotype could contribute to anti-Semitism. “Just because we are both Jewish, doesn’t mean we hold the same views on any specific topic,” she says.

Standing tall amid lingering isolation For Kellner, who was raised Orthodox, legal proceedings churned emotions about her anti-Semitic experiences. In explaining the “Hebrew slave” comment to the judge at her hearing, her lawyer referenced Kellner’s relatives who died in the Holocaust to clarify the link between slavery and Jewish heritage. “I became visibly upset and I think that it just brought home tremendous feelings of sorrow, loss, sadness and all of the things that a Jewish person faces as a minority,” she says. In May 2016 the judge found that Kellner was subjected to religious harassment and a hostile work environment for the “Hebrew slave” comment, however on all other complaints regarding religious leave and other issues, the judge sided

with her employer. Although her employer appealed, in February the verdict was upheld and Kellner was awarded $10,000 in compensatory damages. In the court documents on the appeal, the U.S. Department of Labor argued the claim was “untimely” due to the gap of 10 months between the incident and when Kellner initiated contact with an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission counselor, and was “not severe or pervasive enough”

to constitute a hostile work environment. However, the verdict doesn’t mean things have gotten easier. Kellner ended up keeping her job but says no one has apologized or attempted reparations beyond the legal minimum (which includes a discrimination notice in the office) – and the supervisor who sent the email remains employed. She says although she’s been a workaholic her entire life, being in such an environment is “very demotivating.” She

stays in that environment because she doesn’t anticipate new job opportunities as a middle-aged worker. “It’s like you’re almost made to feel like a victim all over again,” she says. Although Levin’s experience is distinct from Kellner’s, she also experienced isolation and sadness as a result. Levin says feelings of depression were the underlying reason for her leaving Kent State and anti-Semitism alone did not cause her to change course. However, her confusion

surrounding her beliefs and losing friends due to divergent opinions on Israel did make her feel “sadder” and may have contributed. Despite her isolation, Kellner, has no regrets. She suggests that others facing anti-Semitism at work or elsewhere should speak out. “We have nothing to be ashamed of for calling people out for doing the wrong thing,” she says. “It teaches you also to step back and look at other diversity issues as well.” js

An example of Larder’s sauerkraut, made using a vegetable ferment.

Larder looms

Jeremy Umansky’s modern ethnic deli, Larder: A Curated Delicatessen & Bakery, now has a home – in the Hingetown district of Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood – and is slated to open in October. When it was announced in May that Larder would occupy a groundfloor space in the Ohio City Firehouse on West 29th Street, it ended a year-and-a-half of searching for the right location – a search that included spaces in Cleveland Heights and other parts of Ohio City. The concept for Larder seeks to fuse a Great Lakes identity with an Eastern European palate, Umansky says. Meat will come from animals at nearby grass-fed farms, fish will come from lakes and rivers in the Great Lakes region, and fruits and vegetables will rotate on the menu seasonally. Waffle iron-pressed latkes, gefilte fish loaves and koji-accelerated Jewish rye bread are among the other traditionally Jewish choices – with Umansky’s modern twists – that will be found on Larder’s menu. The flagship menu item will be pastrami. To read more about Larder from the Cleveland Jewish News, visit

Flats fare

The menu of restaurants at Flats East Bank – the Wolstein Group-Fairmount Properties mixed-use development in downtown Cleveland – is growing longer. Recently announced were the additions of Dante’s Inferno, which will feature quick-serve Italian offerings from Chef Dante Boccuzzi, who last year formed an unrelated partnership with Harlan Diamond’s Executive Caterers; a brewery and restaurant from Akron-based Thirsty Dog Brewing Co.; and Backyard Bocce, which will house indoor and outdoor courts as well as arcade games and a bar. All are scheduled to open in 2017 and occupy spaces where the Crop-branded trio of businesses once stood. Those three new additions join previously announced restaurants Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, due to open June 27, and an eatery/ performance venue concept from country music stars Rascal Flatts, due to open later this summer. To revisit how Flats East Bank came to be, head to going-with-a-new-flow.

Collision course

For those who haven’t made it to Collision Bend Brewing Co. – the brewpub led by director of service Julian Bruell and brewmaster Luke Purcell that opened in April on the east bank of the Flats – you might not have to go to downtown Cleveland to sample their suds. If you act quickly, that is. In June, Collision Bend partnered with Heinen’s on the grocery store chain’s Burger Bash, a weeklong event that rings in summer grilling season. Collision Bend helped create Burger Bash Brew, a hybrid beer that features earthy notes of German hops (Tettnang and German Tradition) complemented by a zesty blast of American dry hopping with Equinox, according to Heinen’s website. The beer can be taken home from Heinen’s in growlers or howlers (halfgrowlers), but to get it, you’ll have to act fast. Burger Bash ended June 13, and Burger Bash Brew will remain in stores only until it runs out. For more on Collision Bend, visit

Summer 2017




FIRST COURSE hose who walk into The Stone Oven in Cleveland Heights will notice a community of customers talking, laughing and eating together. In the background is a colorful chalkboard menu and a wall filled with a variety of golden-brown breads. Next to the registers is a display of different pastries, biscuits, cookies and muffins, inviting customers closer, and below that is a refrigerated case containing more temperature-sensitive delights like lemon squares, brownies and cakes. Stepping into The Stone Oven, one feels a sense of belonging – and calmness, even during hectic mealtimes. Employees maneuver around chairs, customers and each other to deliver sandwiches and salads to tables or pastries to the front counter. The restaurant has life. That goes for downstairs, too, where bakers busily hand craft croissants, tea biscuits, muffins and other baked goods. The shop’s owners, John Emerman and Tatyana Rehn, aren’t always in the building at 2261 Lee Road at the same time. It’s normal for Emerman to be there but out-of-theordinary for Rehn, whose primary responsibility is The Stone Oven’s wholesale bread venture, which operates out of a separate facility. Still, both are recognized by customers. The Stone Oven feels like a family-run business. In many ways, it is. Emerman and Rehn were married when The Stone Oven was founded, and though they’re now separated, they maintain a cordial – and professionally effective – relationship. One of their two daughters, Sasha, still works at the store from time to time. That familial feel – and the communal atmosphere it fosters – has helped the business become a community staple for 23 years now. Not bad considering both of their



Summer 2017

professional backgrounds were in engineering, not baking. “It’s amazing, and people are so grateful,” Rehn says. “It’s really wonderful.” Emerman appreciates the support they receive from customers. “It’s really nice when somebody ... just stops to let you know ‘thanks for being here,’” he says. “I don’t ever know how to respond. I say ‘thank you,’ but it always catches me off guard.”

Filling out the menu The Stone Oven began as a wholesale bread operation, selling artisan, European-style breads to various cafés and stores. Eventually, Emerman and Rehn expanded by opening a bakery and café. The menu is an assortment of comfort food, from sandwiches and salads to homemade soups and hand-made pastries. Its most popular menu item, says Emerman, is likely the smoked turkey sandwich with honey mustard and provolone cheese, which embodies the way the owners describe their food: simple, healthy and most importantly, fresh. Bread, however, remains The Stone Oven’s calling card. It offers plain or raisin Challah, one of the few apparent connections to Emerman and Rehn’s Jewish heritage, as well as a variety of other

breads, such as the traditional Italian Pugliese bread and San Francisco Sourdough, as well as The Stone Oven’s popular multigrain bread, all made in-house at The Stone Oven’s wholesale baking facility on the outskirts of downtown Cleveland. The facility provides bread for all The Stone Oven locations, of which there are three: one at 28601 Chagrin Blvd. in Woodmere, one in downtown Cleveland at 1301 E. 9th St. (inside the Galleria), and the Lee Road shop, which has been in operation the longest and is the de facto flagship store for franchise. The Stone Oven’s menu hasn’t changed much over the years. “It’s almost out of laziness,” he quips. “It’s true. I don’t know what that means. I don’t know what that says about us.” What the menu lacks in variation it makes up for in simplicity – by design. Emerman says a simple menu keeps the operation running efficiently. “One of the big things that I care about most – I mean the food’s important and so is obviously, ambiance – is customer service,” he says. “And to have a sort of a pared down, simple menu speeds things up,

so we can get people through because we’re quick service (or) fast dining – whatever you want to call it. Getting people through the line is super important, so the smaller the menu … the faster we can do that.”

Breaking bread Another of The Stone Oven’s calling cards is the way in which it provides a space for the community to come together to share food, which Emerman, considers a nod to a Jewish upbringing. “My family, like most Jewish families … eating together, a sense of community sharing food was so important,” he says. “When I got out of college, I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do and I worked in restaurants and loved that, working in that environment, feeding people, serving people. … That was really exciting for me, and it wasn’t until many years later that I realized this is really what I want to do.” The Cleveland Heights location has become lodged in the fabric of many families and couples, Rehn says. “I know at least one couple that used to live around the

corner (in Cleveland Heights) that has since sold their house and now they live in Lakewood,” she says. “Every Sunday morning, they are here to meet with this other couple with whom they shared morning breakfast … for years. They come here. Talk about going out of their way. They come back.” Hearing stories such as that are rewarding for Rehn, because it means The Stone Oven is a meaningful place for people. “I am sure a lot of people would be very sad and upset if we stopped existing,” she says, suggesting a family has formed among owners, employees and customers. “People say to us, ‘I basically gave birth to my families here,’” she says. “These kids are now married and have their own children. Not to mention the kids we hired 20 years ago, now they’re successful lawyers, account managers, working in Chicago, New York, whatever,

with their own children. They were our little kids working here.”

Looking back, ahead The Stone Oven could be considered Emerman and Rehn’s third child – one that’s required a lot of care and attention, as small businesses (and children) do. Neither regrets business decisions made over the years but both acknowledge The Stone Oven hasn’t been something they could step away from for extended periods of time. “The only advice I’d give my (past) self was ... the business was permeating everything. We never left the business, it was exhausting,” says Rehn, adding she also would’ve advised herself to not talk about the store constantly, even when she and Emerman were married. To take his mind off of the business, Emerman says he

typically takes trips far from Northeast Ohio. Otherwise, his mind is at the business, pulling him back like a magnet. “I’m very envious of these other restaurants or cafés that close on a Monday, for example,” he says, noting the wholesale bread portion of the business essentially requires they be open seven days a week. Eventually, of course, neither the 62-year-old Emerman nor 56-year-old Rehn will be at the shop at all. Retirement beckons, and since both of their daughters have other careers – and lack interest in taking over the family business – it’s currently unclear who will take the reins when the couple hang up their baking aprons. “To me, it’s really important that this business continues the way it is,” Emerman says. “I almost want to sell it to someone who lives in Cleveland Heights, who really

sort of gets it and wants to continue the way it is. Just sort of hoping and praying that someday somebody will come along. Or work for me and sort of rise up and make a nice, smooth transition. We’re waiting for that day to happen, and in the meantime, I’ll just keep showing up to work any way I can.” Rehn says she isn’t holding out hope someone will come along to take control of the wholesale aspect of the business. “I need to be in a position where the business is not dependent on me, physically at least,” she says. “I don’t know what’s going to happen, but right now, I need to feed all of my people and all of our stores.” The two keep a sense of humor about the situation, though. “If you know anybody, send ‘em our way,” Emerman says with a smile. js

Add a pinch of the Promised Land to your summer grilling repertoire – with some help from chef Douglas Katz

FLAVORS Story by Alyssa Schmitt Photography by Michael C. Butz

he savory smells and small puffs of smoke emanating from backyards across Northeast Ohio are a sure sign that summer has arrived, and as grill masters across the region busily prepare meals in their backyard kitchens, some may find they want to broaden their horizons – perhaps all the way to Israel, so to speak. Chef Douglas Katz knows a thing or two about both cooking and Israel. In fact, he recently took a trip to Israel and savored the unique combinations of different foods. “Across from (the market) there was this restaurant,” he says. “It was a grazing-style restaurant where you could eat so many different foods, and when you combine them all, everything eats so well together.” Katz has a wood-fired stone oven in his Cleveland Heights backyard, not a grill, but says the instruments’ common

denominator – an open flame – is perfect for Israeli-style cooking. “When you think of Israeli culture, you think of how old that is so you think of the element of cooking is fire,” says Katz, whose flagship restaurant is fire food + drink in Cleveland’s Shaker Square neighborhood. “I think of cooking over fire as the most elemental – and the most sort of old-world – way of cooking, and I think of cooking outside on the grill and cooking Israeli food.” To bring a taste of Israel to one’s Northeast Ohio

SECOND SERVING hotdogs. Katz favors chicken or fish. As for side dishes, Katz suggests replacing run-of-themill potato salad with options like Swiss chard, Israeli salad or potatoes with zhug. For Katz, there’s one essential ingredient that brings a plate to life: spice. Katz has his own line of spices, Fire Spice Co., which includes 12 different blends and can help novice grillers navigate the immense world of spices. “I think people (can be) overwhelmed by the amount of flavor going on,” he says. “Sometimes people use spices and they don’t know how to use them,” he says. Katz mixes simple and complex combinations when spicing his meal, sometimes settling on salt and pepper, like in the Swiss chard, but

also blends herbs and chilies in his zhug, creating a freshfrom-the-garden taste. “I think experimenting simply is probably better, even if you use salt and pepper,” he says. “When you want to go simple, I think kosher salt and just freshly cracked pepper is awesome. If you want to expand it a little, adding some dried chilies ... really would be great.” It’s easy to see Katz isn’t afraid of a little heat and encourages others to step up to the grill this summer and enjoy the taste with friends. “When you cook on an electric burner … it’s just not as fun,” he says. “There’s an element of getting out in the sun and cooking over a wood fire that makes it more fun. … (When) you’re telling people you’re grilling or you’re barbequing, people want to come.” js

Right: Katz prepares an Israeli salad in his kitchen. Below: He also prepared a bluefish, but for a truer Israeli experience, he recommends using a Mediterranean Sea bass.



Summer 2017

GRILLED POTATOES Servings: about 4

Ingredients 1 pound of baby potatoes (fingerlings, peewees or baby redskins) Kosher salt to taste Freshly cracked pepper

Instructions 1) Clean the potatoes and allow to drain. 2) Place the potatoes in a medium stock pot and fill the pot with cold water to cover the potatoes by 2 inches. 3) Add enough kosher salt to the water so it tastes like the sea when completely dissolved. 4) Simmer the potatoes over medium high heat until fork tender, about 30 minutes. 5) Drain the potatoes and allow them to cool, then cut the

potatoes in half. 6) Make sure your grill is extremely hot for best results. Place the potatoes flesh side down on your grill and cook until browned and well marked, about 2 to 3 minutes while turning the potatoes, and continue cooking for 2 to 3 minutes or until the potatoes are marked to desired doneness. Remove to a bowl. 7) Toss the potatoes with desired amount of zhug to taste and serve.

ZHUG Servings: about 1 cup

Ingredients 10 Jalapenos, stems removed ½ cup curly parsley, washed and stemmed ½ cup cilantro, washed and stemmed 1 teaspoon of freshly chopped oregano or mint, depending on preference 2 garlic cloves 1½ teaspoons kosher salt 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice ½ cup canola oil

Instructions 1) Combine all ingredients except the oil in a blender or a small food processor and blend to a paste, about 20 to 30 seconds. 2) Add the canola oil and pulse once or twice to combine. Taste for seasoning, scrape into a jar or bowl and refrigerate until ready to use.

SWISS CHARD WITH ONIONS Ingredients 2 tablespoons canola oil 2 bunches of rainbow Swiss chard, washed, stemmed and torn into bite-sized pieces 1 small yellow onion, peeled and diced Kosher salt to taste Freshly cracked black pepper to taste

Instructions 1) Heat a large sauté pan, add the oil and allow to heat until the oil starts to shimmer. 2) Add the onions and sauté for 30 seconds, stirring occasionally. 3) Season liberally with salt and pepper and stir for 15 more seconds. 4) Add the Swiss chard, pressing gently to allow it to contact the pan so it cooks quickly.

5) Allow the chard to cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute without stirring. Once the chard moistens and begins to look cooked, toss the chard once or twice to get as much of the onions off of the bottom of your pan. The onions should be golden brown but not burned. 6) Continue cooking for 30 seconds or to desired doneness. Taste for seasoning and serve immediately.

S N O I T OP The Edison at Gordon Square brings luxury rentals to Detroit-Shoreway


Story by Carlo Wolff Photography by Michael C. Butz

n late May, sandy paths that will become parts of a city street marked the biggest rental project in a Cleveland neighborhood as laborers worked on The Edison at Gordon Square, a 306-unit development on a former industrial site north of Breakwater Avenue between West 65th and West 58th streets.

The $30 million NRP Group venture, a work in progress for nearly four years, aims to combine urban convenience with resort-style amenities similar to those available at The Vue, a 348-unit rental project in Beachwood that NRP Group developed. And, like Battery Park, a for-sale condominium complex of some 250 units a few blocks to the east, The Edison intends to capitalize on proximity to downtown, to Gordon Square, the thriving cultural district several blocks south, and to Lake Erie, a short walk or bike ride to the north.



Summer 2017

Where The Vue aimed to offer urban amenities in a suburban setting, The Edison “is much more engrained into the urban fabric of Gordon Square and is designed to draw our residents out into the neighborhood and Edgewater Park, which we consider our best amenity,” says J. David Heller, co-founder and principal of The NRP Group. At the same time, The Edison offers amenities unique to the neighborhood, including a resort-style pool with fire pits, outdoor televisions and a grilling pavilion with bar seating. Other lures are

a fourth-floor lounge with views of Lake Erie and downtown and a bicycle repair room. In an on-site tour in late May, Nancy Kelly, director of field marketing for the Garfield Heights-based NRP Group, says The Edison was “well over halfpreleased,” adding that all 306 units will be built out by September. The site was busy, with some residents in the already opened 100 units and workmen bent on extending Father David Caruso Drive seven blocks east. An abandoned factory at the site’s center sports a water tower that can be seen from afar. NRP Group, which also owns that building and tower, may “do something cool down the road” with them, perhaps including retail, says Kelly. But for now, the project is totally residential.


Summer 2017




Feature story The smoke-free, energyefficient project feels urban despite its Vue-like amenities, like that outdoor pool with privacy wall, a fitness center, a conference room and public green spaces. Besides easy access to Gordon Square (not to mention a five-minute drive to downtown), The Edison features a bicycle and walking trail designed to get the intrepid urbanite under and through the Shoreway to Edgewater Park to enjoy such events and attractions as Edgewater Live and Lake Erie sunsets. The new West 73rd Street underpass off the Shoreway is another access point. “We are targeting those renters who are seeking an authentic Cleveland neighborhood near the lake,” says Heller. “With our location, residents can walk to Edgewater Park, (to) restaurants located in Gordon Square, catch a movie at (the) Capitol Theatre, and go to Third Fridays at 78th Street Studios. We are also a close drive and bike ride to Battery Park, Hingetown, Ohio City and downtown Cleveland. We’ve found that with our new product in this location, we are attracting people from downtown and the suburbs alike.” The Edison is counting on downtown spillover. During the last six years, downtown Cleveland has maintained an average occupancy rate of more than 95 percent even as it added more than 2,000 apartment units to the market. The Downtown Cleveland Alliance estimates close to 1,100 new apartments will come on the market this year. Cleveland’s robust rental market, fueled by

One-bedroom apartments • Size: 561 to 1,074 square feet • Rent: $1,210 to $2,040 Two-bedroom apartments • Size: 1,046 to 1,247 square feet • Rent: $1,645 to $2,800 Two- and threebedroom townhomes • Size: 1,530 to 1,946 square feet • Rent: $2,580 to $3,975 Rents listed are current as of mid-June and subject to change.

The ultramodern complex, a virtual city in itself, is attracting a “lot of renters who still want to be in an urban area but not right downtown,” she says, noting long waiting lists for center-city apartments. “Our residents so far are very happy,” she says. “They know they’re still living in a construction zone but they’re excited and they feel welcome.”

A group effort Part of what makes The Edison unusual is the way it works with local artists and neighborhood organizations. Take a two-room model suite, designed by Susie Frazier to showcase her work, along with

that of other artists associated with 78th Street Studios, and Cleveland businesses. A Japanese tea set is one of the visual magnets in this 1,136-square-foot unit. So are a magnet board spotlighting the area’s retail options and a closet containing clothing from Whiskey Grade, a store near the West Side Market. Kelly says the idea is to make residents bond with the neighborhood, similar to the way people who live in Ohio City and Tremont do. “We’re going to be here, we want to work with people, we want to partner, we don’t want to just be another apartment community here,” she says of the project. “It’s very important for us to collaborate with the

neighborhood … and now people know Gordon Square.” “We’ve worked diligently to commission local artists for original pieces and design work at The Edison,” says Heller. “We’re passionate about embracing the neighborhood and the impressive collection of entrepreneurs at our doorstep.” That attitude also pertains to the whole DetroitShoreway neighborhood, which can only benefit from The Edison, suggests Adam Rosen, economic development director for the Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization. He says The Edison is the largest rental project in DetroitShoreway, which runs along

Feature story

Detroit Avenue between West 45th and West 85th streets. (The neighborhood’s southern border is Clark Avenue.) “(The Edison) will play a role in the continuing increase of property values in the neighborhood,” Rosen says. The median value for homes in the district was $45,400 in 2011. In 2016, it was $100,000, Rosen says. His organization has been a “convener” on The Edison, working with the developer, area residents and the city of Cleveland to tackle and overcome problems in design, securing necessary permits and assembling a workforce; the community development organization held a hiring fair “to provide labor for the project,” he says.

Summer 2017

A model one-bedroom suite, a 713-square-foot unit renting for $1,375 a month, is a relaxing space, its palette earth-toned and neutral: grays, off-whites, charcoal and black coffee. The tawny highlights in the variegated living room carpet conjure a cornfield, and the laminate floor looks wooden and weathered though it is neither. The frame of the bathroom mirror is bleached and distressed, giving it a comforting feeling of wear, and a kind of ruffian elegance. Dimit Architects of Cleveland was the architect; David Hawkins of Akron did

the interior design (except for that two-bedroom unit Frazier put together). The idea seems to be to blend the low-impact with the energizing, and at its most original, there’s grace to the place’s appointments: “shelves” holding swabs and pads in the long bathroom are suspended like planters, giving that space a special buoyancy. “Dimit, which already has had a large impact throughout the neighborhood, has taken an even larger step forward with The Edison,” says Heller. “Dimit’s modern design has been executed in a way that incorporates this great development into existing urban fabric of the neighborhood.” Dimit’s offices are on Detroit Avenue. Rosen says his organization wanted “to see something happen here,” and The Edison is happening indeed. His community advocacy group knew the “retooling of Route 2 (the Shoreway) and Edgewater Park was in the works, and it was fortunate that NRP was willing to invest in the city of Cleveland.” Now he sees brand-new Edison residents walking their dogs in the neighborhood. “We’re excited to see it continue,” Rosen says of this ambitious, new-construction development. “This is really a big deal for us.” js

Crown jewels By Becky Raspe Natural home accents are still in – but not in the way you’d think. It’s not about flushing your home with color; statement pieces here and there are more than enough. Think deep jewel tones and brick accents to bring out the riches in your life. A vibrant and saturated jewel-toned palette is both mysterious and organic. By placing furniture in such hues throughout your home, the thought of living deeply and beautifully has never been more attainable.

Let the sun shine in your house with the addition – or renovation – of a sunroom By Ed Carroll


hey go by a few different names: conservatories, indoor patios, Florida rooms, five seasons rooms (or four or three seasons), or most commonly, sunrooms. But whatever one chooses to call a room enclosed by screens and/or glass, sunrooms have become quite popular, giving people in Northeast Ohio a room in their home to enjoy the sunshine and outdoors with the comforts of an inside room. Sunrooms aren’t a new concept, but some recent developments in flooring have helped spur on the popularity. Marc Wien, vice president of Marshall Carpet in Mayfield Heights, says the biggest change in his industry has been the emergence of luxury vinyl tile, which is waterproof

and feels softer and warmer under one’s feet than ceramic, particularly with a sisal rug on top to tie the room together. “LVT gives you a look in just about every type of thing that you want,” Wein says. “The LVT, which is relatively new to the industry and has made great strides,

you can buy it with a sheen or matte finish, and you can buy it so it looks like granite, tile or marble.” The clients of Kathleen Bliss Goldfarb, owner and director of design at Decorating Den Interiors in Chagrin Falls, use sunrooms for a variety of reasons, depending on their budgets. “They use it for reading, yoga and meditation, dining, entertaining guests,” Goldfarb says. “It’s just a great attribute to the home.” A sunroom can be used in a few different ways, and a lot of it simply depends on how the room is set up; everyone’s perspective on the sunroom is different. If

it’s a heated space, some people will use the room as a true living space, says Bert Rodriguez, director of operations at Nature Stone in Bedford. “Typically (in a sunroom), there’s some form of a nicer version of patio furniture, the higher end type of furniture, like you’d find in a normal family room, with TVs oftentimes,” he says. “One thing I’ve noticed in recent years is people have started to pull their grill right up to the door and they work right outside. In our climate, any given day of the week it can be a rainy day. But in wintertime, the beautiful thing about Greater

ROOM SERVICE Cleveland, or Cleveland people in general, is we’re robust type of people. We’ll grill out in the winter. … They want as much of that summer thing as they can get all winter long.” Wien, Goldfarb and Rodriguez all say their companies will make recommendations based on the clients’ wants and desires. Goldfarb says when it’s left up to her, she prefers to make sunrooms feel simple, clean, light and airy. “One thing that does not fit into a sunroom is the real trendy industrial style because a sunroom should be soft,” Goldfarb says. “No hardfeel straight lines, you need to be soft, organic and tactile with your materials. Wood, root materials and things that are suggestive of nature are good for sunrooms.” She also says people looking to design a sunroom in their homes need to be aware of lighting in the room, as sunrooms often don’t have a lot of electrical outlets. “I would suggest people in planning to consider power and lighting needs, and they should also have a generous budget,” she says. “(Sunrooms) are specialized rooms, especially if (the room has) a strange shape.” The trend Rodriguez commonly sees at Nature Stone is that people are sick of moldy carpets or mildew in their sunrooms. “The only true trend that I keep seeing is people are tired of a moldy type carpet,” he says. “When (Nature Stone) is installed on that floor, we’re not allowing mold or mildew to grow.” If you have a sunroom, or want to turn a room of
