FATHERS – FLAG DAY– FACEBOOK

This month we celebrate fathers on June 17th. So, I wish all the dads a Happy Father’s Day. Tim Russert wrote the book, Wisdom of Our Fathers with reflections from children and the impact their father had on their lives. I read this book as well as listen to it on long trips in the car. The messages from each individual’s perspective are both heartwarming and heart wrenching. It reminds me of the lessons of service, opportunity and perseverance my dad taught me and my hope of what I pass to my son. Through the years, fatherhood has taken on many facets from the Greatest Generations war torn toughness to today’s kinder, gentler dad. What I learned from my dad is - you are what you do. That is, you make a life not by what you get, rather by what you give. My dad was not able to provide much monetarily, but he did provide the example of the power of service to others. This is what creates opportunity and one’s legacy. Embracing this characteristic has been challenging and at times disadvantageous to me personally. Still, I believe, in the long run, it will produce benefits beyond my dreams. I know there will be days when I stumble or when people try to knock me down, but I was taught to look up, get up and never give up! Flag Day – When? Always June 14th! This is the day for all Americans, and those who have been given the opportunity to live here in the USA, to celebrate and show respect for our flag, its designers and makers as well as those men and women who protect, or paid the ultimate sacrifice for,

what the flag symbolizes. Our flag represents our independence and our unity as a nation - one nation, under God, indivisible. Our flag has a proud history and is known as an emblem of Liberty around the world. So, no matter where you are from, I urge you to raise the American flag this month and every day with pride! Speaking of raising the flag, Facebook will go public as one of the greatest images for what America represents – Opportunity. This is where one takes an idea to connect billions of people through digital channels and ultimately profits by its proliferation. And, now you can buy popularity on the site. A Facebook spokesperson confirmed last month the “pay to play” test going on in New Zealand. Capitalism at its best! The service Facebook provides are numerous, from reconnecting lifelong friends to fostering business

transactions and it has even been credited for the rise of liberty in countries once dominated by dictators. Let’s hope it also serves a catalyst for positive change toward peace and global collaborations to bring opportunities for all humanity. After all, isn’t this the aspiration of all fathers for their children? Happy Father’s Day – As Always – Enjoy the Lifestyle! Jim Norton President & Publisher Lifestyle Publications

June marks the beginning of family travel season. If you’re like us when you hit the road, you want to see something different, not just the usual tourist haunts. Enter http://atlasobscura.com/, a website designed and curated to share the hidden sites of cities you may be visiting. This endlessly fascinating and well curated site will enable you to dazzle your friends when you suggest some off the beaten path destinations. Even if you “staycation,” Altas Obscura can make you seem like an expert. The site has more than a dozen offbeat Florida locations to explore. Our favorite: “The Skunk Ape Research Headquarters” in the Everglades. Dave Shealy is the Jane Goodall of the Florida Everglades. Shealy has spent his entire life studying a smelly hominid cryptid known as the Skunk Ape, and has established the official Skunk Ape Research Center. So what is a Skunk Ape? Think of Florida’s version of Big Foot. Does it exist? That’s for you to decide, but you may want to visit Dave Shealy first. He can be found in Ochopee, Florida. Until next month.

Summertime is here, which means that it’s time to decide on your beach reading list. If you’re looking for inspiration, look no further than a sensational new book entitled “What Do You Want To Do Before You Die?” Jonnie Penn, Dave Lingwood, Duncan Penn and Ben Nemtin – collectively known as The Buried Life have written a stunning book that is sweeping the nation. Their live appearances at schools across the country have become a YouTube sensation as people of all ages share what they would like to accomplish before leaving this Earth. Answers range from having Morgan Freeman read them a bedtime story to ending human trafficking. The Buried Life team wrote the book to prove that four ordinary guys can achieve their bucket lists and inspire others to live their dreams. The Buried Life is so confident that you will love their book that they are willing to buy it back if you don’t like it and they’ll even throw in a t- shirt for your trouble. Now that’s confidence. What Do You Want To Do Before You Die? Is an illustrated collection of your wildest dreams. Two hundred of the most moving, imaginative, amusing, and thought-provoking things to do before you die are brought to life through handmade art curated by Dave, Duncan, Jonnie and Ben—the founders of The Buried Life. These four regular guys are on a mission to complete a list of 100 things before they die, and for every item they accomplish, they help a total stranger do something on his or her own to-do list. Peppered throughout the book are lessons, secrets, and stories that come from five years of asking millions worldwide: What do you want to do before you die? Without spoiling the book, their wish list includes playing basketball with President Obama (done), throwing out the first pitch at a Major League Baseball game and delivering a baby. Available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and other fine book dealers. www. theburiedlifebook.com

A strong, successful healthcare company requires a strong visionary and strategic leader.

SCOTT J. BROOK

ATTORNEY AND FORMER CORAL SPRINGS MAYOR SCOTT J. BROOK SPEAKS ABOUT HIS EARLY DAYS AS AN ATTORNEY, BUILDING BUSINESSES IN THE CITY, AND KEEPING THE COMMUNITY “100 PERCENT FAMILY-FRIENDLY.” BY JOANNA MAZEWSKI

As one of the most recognizable names and faces of Coral Springs, family law attorney Scott J. Brook is someone who has witnessed many changes to the city over the years, and as a former mayor, played a key role in making it one of the most sought-after towns in the country. Before he became mayor though, Scott opened his own family law practice to better serve the South Florida tri-county area. It’s where he was able to build his reputation as one of the tri-county’s most dedicated family lawyers. As a member of the Florida Bar, Scott has practiced successfully before the Florida Supreme Court, the First District Court of Appeal, the Judges of Compensation Claims of the TriCounty area, Collier County and Orange County as well as the Dade, Broward and Palm Beach State courts. Many of his former clients have called him one of the most “caring, heartfelt, and truly understanding” attorneys in the area. Scott recalls one of his fondest memories during his early days as an

16

attorney, explaining: “It was a workers’ compensation case that I was defending for an uninsured employer. The issues were difficult and novel. I had a wonderful client, but it appeared that the law and facts were adverse to him. ”He adds: “Despite recommending settlement, he was confident that given his company’s size and the specific facts, that he should not be responsible for the fraudulent claim he thought was made against him. My opposing counsel was obstinate and difficult to deal with, to say the least. On the day of trial, I gave myself some extra time to attempt some creative research. I found two great cases and made a very creative legal argument that prevailed. My client was confident that we would win and we did!” But it’s not only in the courtroom where Scott is able to make an impact. In 2003, he founded Premier Networking Alliance, a business referral and community service organization dedicated to help market businesses and serve communities raising money

JUNE 2012 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM

for various charitable organizations. When asked what tips he could give to would-be entrepreneurs who want to start a business in Coral Springs, he offers: “Make sure you are comfortable with risk and people saying “no.” Find others who are like-minded and spend time with them. Consider joining the Chamber of Coral Springs or PNA Entrepreneur. It is essential to get involved in the community and find ways to give back (i.e. – the wonderful Sawgrass Nature Center or Drug Free Youth in Town). I believe the businesses and entrepreneurs that maintain a great track record of success in this great city have a great heart and enjoy helping our local community.” His business-forward nature helped Scott become elected as Coral Springs mayor in 2006, and he served in that capacity until November 2010. To this day, he serves as founder and Chairman of the Coral Springs Customer Involved Government Committee, Parent Education Committee and is a member of the Financial Advisory Committee. But he does not believe a person’s time should all be spent at work. In fact, he’s a big believer in family values. Married to his wife Brenda, who he shares five children with (Patrick, Tina, Matthew, A.J. and Samantha), Scott considers “Sunday dinners” as an occasion when families should set everything aside and spend much-needed quality time with the most important people in their lives. It’s the perfect moment for “sharing loving conversations with more focus on what’s good than on what’s missing, and being kind and respectful to others regardless of their differences.” In the end, it’s the citizens and their families who make the city of Coral Springs great, according to Scott. And we have every reason to believe it. He adds, “From our government to the schools, from the retail businesses to the numerous volunteers in our City, our community is 100 percent familyfriendly!” While there’s no doubt that his services and dedication to his work as a lawyer and businessman have been much appreciated by those who have worked with him, there’s also a good reason why the city of Coral Springs was named one of the best towns to live in by Money Magazine back in 2010 -- Scott’s efforts and unending commitment to the booming community.

PINE CREST SCHOOL

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT... ii Martina Fouquet Pine Crest School www.Pinecrest.edu

Known for turning common academic topics “inside out” during classroom discussion, Martina is a top-tier math student with a penchant for singing Broadway. Or is she a promising actress and ballerina on the pre-med track? Indeed, Martina is all of these things. She thanks Pine Crest School for allowing her to be herself, and excel outside the box. “Pine Crest is a school of intellectual thinking. There are no limits,” said Martina. “You walk around on campus and students aren’t talking about something on TV last night. You will hear conversations like, ‘Did you hear about the presidential campaign or some new scientific research?’ There is a mutual respect for one another.” Martina balances a course load heavy with AP classes, sings in the chorus, and performs in principal roles in most of Pine Crest’s plays and musicals. She is in constant motion and she manages to earn top marks in all of her classes. She traveled with her classmates to the American High School Theater Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland in 2009, and has since performed in the fall production of “Twelve Angry Jurors,” the ballet “Coppelia,” and this November’s ballet production of “A Christmas Carol.” Martina also is very involved in working with Pine Crest’s sister school Three Little Flowers, in Petit-Goave, Haiti. She is a member of Pine Crest’s Black Students’ Association, and she is an active member of the anti-bullying team “Words That Hurt,” a school-wide program coordinated by Pine Crest’s Diversity office. Martina will study humanities and pre-med at Princeton University. To learn more about Pine Crest’s Upper School, go to: http://vimeo.com/channels/248920.

ii Sam Nemiroff Pine Crest School www.Pinecrest.edu

Something about the French horn “speaks” to senior Sam Nemiroff, who has played the complex and often misunderstood instrument for almost nine years. Sam, who also plays trumpet, said he is much more comfortable with the French horn because the instrument demands a certain depth of musicality that is not always appreciated by the masses. “It kind of defines what kind of musician I am and it is different from other brass instruments because there are nuances that make it so much more complex,” said Sam, a science scholar, musician, and classical music composer. The “mellow” brass instrument suits Sam well, as he is placed among a select few in the country who have received the Young Fine Arts Merit Award, which measures mastery of musicianship at the Upper School level. Sam’s love for the musical arts is only one aspect of his focused School career. He also is a member of Pine Crest School’s award-winning Upper School Science Research Team. Sam recently was named a 2012 Intel Semi-finalist for his research entitled, “The Risk of Microbial Keratitis from Contaminated Eyewash Stations,” which was conducted at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute under the direction of Dr. Darlene Miller. Sam’s research confirmed the presence of the pathogens in two-thirds of the water he collected from laboratories along the East coast. He said he is very honored by the recognition he has received at Pine Crest School. Sam will major in molecular, cellular, and developmental biology (MCDB) at Yale University this fall.

8 BENJAMIN FRANKLIN Who is the author of the Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin? Well, Benjamin Franklin, of course… What better to appreciate the excitement and challenges of our country’s formative years than to read the autobiography of Benjamin Franklin! Although Franklin was born a little over 300 years ago, his life continues to be an inspiration and his advice is timeless. Wikipedia wrote that “…this work has become one of the most famous and influential examples of an autobiography ever written. Used paperback on Amazon start at a penny (a penny saved is a penny earned, mind you…) and via Kindle it’s free.

6

A CAPITAL FOURTH A Capital Fourth… is another great tradition, particularly for those who enjoy just staying home in the evening… You can tune into PBS Channel 2 to enjoy the fabulous and very patriotic concert and watching the “… best fireworks of any celebration.” Touted as “America’s Premier Birthday Party,” an audience favorite and a highlight of the evening is the rousing rendition of Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture” complete with live cannon fire provided by the United States Army Presidential Salute Battery. The show, which starts at 8:00 p.m. will feature stunning visuals of the National Mall and the memorials and monuments representing the ideals underpinning our democracy. Some Fireworks Trivia… Did you know the fireworks have names?? Here’s a few… Peony - the most common type of firework, the peony shell type is a spherical break of colored stars that burn without a tail effect; Chrysanthemum - a spherical break of colored stars, similar to a peony, but with stars that leave a visible trail of sparks; and Crossette a shell containing several large stars that travel a short distance before breaking apart into smaller stars, leaving a crisscross effect.

9

BARBECUE This doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out… We’re not sure if the family and friends Bar-B-Q is a tradition started by our Founding Fathers, but it sure is a great way to celebrate… and don’t forget the birthday cake for dessert!

IDENTITY THIEVES ARE OUT TO STEAL YOUR LIFESTYLE THIS SUMMER THANK GOODNESS IT’S SUMMER AND YOU’RE GOING ON VACATION – NO TROUBLES, NO PROBLEMS, IT’S ALL GOOD. NOT REALLY; ALL AROUND YOU IDENTITY THIEVES ARE BUSY CONSPIRING TO PLUNDER YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION. BY BRIAN BIENKOWSKI

dentity thieves don’t take vacations; they wait for you to plan a trip and then act. It’s devious and unfortunately a proven winner. Why? Because it’s human nature to relax while on vacation and forget about “reality.” Thieves know it and they thrive on it. So the question is how can you protect yourself while simultaneously enjoying your summer retreat?

START PREPARATIONS BEFORE YOU SET OUT ON YOUR ADVENTURE. Contact your bank and credit card companies and inform them of your trip. Give them your destination and the length of your stay. They can then observe your account to verify if your cards are being used at another location. For example, John Stewart of Coral Springs never contacted his credit card company and he


will provide the authorities with valuable information. One other note of caution to the many social media users out there, don’t publicize your travel plans to all your friends and relatives on Facebook or Twitter. It’s careless. Even with all the online security settings and other safeguards in place. You’re just inviting trouble because you don’t really know who’s looking at your posts, especially with all the trolls snooping around; it’s an open invitation to rob your house. Identity thieves quickly adapt and reinvent new ways to steal your personal information, your money and your lifestyle. They are diligent but these simple tips should make them look elsewhere for another victim. Just remember, be prepared, be careful and stay alert – then have fun.

paid the price. “To be honest, I wasn’t thinking about identityy theft;; I was thinking about getting away from the stress of work,” said John. “But when I got back from my vacation and received my credit card bill, I noticed an additional $1,000 on “I WAS RELAXING charged AND CHECKING my account. It so MY BANK happened ACCOUNT AT fast.” Next, think THE LOCAL COFFEE about your home.

Ask NUMBER SO your neighbors EASILY AND to pick up your DRAIN MY mail or call the ACCOUNT. I WAS post office and IN SHOCK.” ask them to hold the mail while you are away. If thieves are casing a neighborhood and see an overstuffed mailbox, you automatically become a target. After that clean out your wallet or purse and bring only the essentials. Leave items such as your social security card and check book at home in a secure place. Bring two credit cards in case one gets lost or becomes inactivated.

I you have to bring If a ATM card with an you, bring a pincard. based If you don’t one have then simply ask yo our bank for one. your Also, be very careful oosing a location when ch choosing to withdraw money out of a machine. Make certain it’s safe ne has not been and the machin machine tampered with in any manner. There are mechanisms such as skimming devices that thieves attach to ATM machines. These devices capture your personal information once you swipe your card. Check the machine carefully or ask a manager at the place you are staying for a trusted spot to withdraw money. If you plan on taking your laptop don’t access personal accounts at the local coffee shop with internet capability. Most Wi-Fi hot spots don’t have security. The same goes for hotel computers or computers at internet cafés. Identity thieves use software such as keyloggers, which track your keystrokes and steal your personal information. Jan Archers can attest to it. “I was relaxing and checking my bank account at the local coffee shop,” said Jan. “I never thought someone could steal my account number so easily and drain my account. I was in shock.” If you are staying in a hotel don’t leave any personal information out in the open. Lock it up in the safe. Also, make photocopies of all your key documents, such as your passport, plane tickets, hotel and reservations even your driver’s license and place them in the safe, too. If your wallet or purse is stolen these photocopies

How do you stay involved in the community? I volunteer at my daughter’s school, Heron Heights Elementary, as a room dad. I am an officer in the Seminole Nation Indian Princess Aztec Tribe (YMCA dad and daughter program) and most importantly, I sit on the Board of Directors of LifeNet4Families formally known as the Cooperative Feeding Program of Broward County, whose purpose is to reduce the pain and suffering of individuals and families in poverty. Where can you be found on your day/ night off when you’re not with your children? When I do not have my daughter I am usually either volunteering, traveling or out on my boat fishing or scuba diving. I do love to go out for dinner so in the evening I am usually out somewhere in Downtown Delray Beach, Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale or South Beach. How do you juggle being a bachelor... and a father? I have my daughter about 45-50% of the time and I am usually working a lot as well. My evenings without my daughter are my time to socialize. I also typically have two weekends a month without my daughter so that gives me time to go out. I am very involved with my daughter so I always make sure anyone that I date understands this and knows that if the relationship takes on a further direction this is my main priority.

Traveling as often as possible, boating, scuba diving, kayaking, spending time at the beach, shopping and taking care of myself. I also love to spend time with my kids and family. What would the perfect day spent with your children include? We love traveling together. Different cities throughout the US and the islands, or even just spending the day exploring new places locally here in South Florida. We often just hop in the car and drive down to the Keys or over to Naples and

discover new places of interest. It’s funny how we all get along so well and even like the same types of food and love trying new restaurants that are unique or that we have never been to. What is your favorite date Bill night hotspot? I always love the Las Olas area and so many and of our local restaurants here in Ft. Lauderdale such as The Capital Grille, So Litas and Casa D’Angelo, being a few of my favorites. But I also love heading down to Miami Beach, The Design District or Lincoln Road. It’s usually not the place but the people you’re with that make it special. I always love attending the local charity events around town with great friends and associates as well.

I continuously help raise money and awareness for various charities by hosting and underwriting events several times a month at the Allied Kitchen & Bath Ft. Lauderdale showroom.

Feinberg with chil dren K Michael, ara, 25 21.

Where can you be found on your day/night off when you’re not with your children? Hiding out in my condo near the beach or a weekend getaway at one of Ft. Lauderdale’s great hotels. What are you grateful for? I am so grateful and blessed to have my health, a very close family with three brothers and lots of friends, a great business celebrating our 28th year, and most importantly the ability to help others and always “pay it forward”. How do you juggle being a bachelor… and a father? It’s actually much easier now that my children are older. I take it one day at a time though. I’m very involved in my children’s lives and I’m there for them for anything they need. The kids always come first. I’m a 24/7 kind of guy, so whatever it takes is my attitude. I always have time to help my kids – listen and advise … especially when they want my advice !!!

JAY DUNNING How many children do you have? I have three children. Anne Marie (Annie) is 12 years old, John is 10 years old, and Carolina is 6 years old. Annie is smart, pretty, very athletic and outgoing. She has a passion for playing soccer and has participated on teams in fast pitch softball, basketball, bowling, and competitive cheer squads as well. She also enjoys playing the clarinet for her school band. My son John is very smart, laid back and easy going. He is happy to come home and get involved in a pick up game of soccer, baseball, football, basketball with neighborhood friends or stay inside and play the Wii or Nintendo DS. He is in a bowling league and recently began taking guitar lessons. My youngest daughter Carolina is so cute, funny, outgoing, smart, and affectionate. She is fearless and never hesitates to participate in any activity with her older siblings and their friends. She is very animated and loves to swim, dance and sing. She just started to play the piano also. Where do you work? I am employed by the Broward Sheriff’s Office as a Deputy Sheriff. I started my career with BSO in August 1991 and first worked road patrol in Unincorporated Pompano Beach after graduating the police academy. I am currently assigned to marine patrol in Pompano Beach as a rescue/recovery diver throughout Broward County.

Jay Dunnin g and child ren Anne Marie, 12, John, 10 an d Carolina, 6.

What are your favorite hobbies? My favorite hobbies are coaching, boating, and playing any sport.

What would the perfect day with your children would include? The perfect day with my children would be a family gathering at the lake house in North

36

JUNE 2012 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM


Carolina with my parents, my two sisters, my five nephews and one niece. Swimming, diving, and playing catch in the lake as well as boating, water skiing, tubing and fishing. Completing the day would be a cookout. The interaction of the children with their aunts, uncles and grandparents and the memories made between all of them as they grow older are amazing and something we do every year. What is your favorite date night pot? I really do not have a favorite date night hot spot. Something relaxing like a casual dinner out or in and then watch a movie at home together or go in a hot tub. How would you describe yourself in one word? Dedicated How do you stay involved with your community? I stay involved with the community in a variety of ways. I just finished coaching all three of my kids Coral Springs Youth Soccer teams in March. I have also coached I9 soccer and basketball league teams in Coral Springs. Additionally, I volunteer at my children’s schools helping out in the classroom as well as assisting with special events such as field trips and career days. I like to participate in community charity events through work such as Relay for Life, Special Olympics Law Enforcement Torch Run and Waterway Clean Up. Where can you be found on your day/night off when you’re not with your children? Normally at work. I like to stay out and work extra shifts on the boat in the evening once the sun goes down and it is a little cooler outside. Why are you the person you are today? I really enjoy helping people and just being a good person. It is really not about making money but the satisfaction received from helping others and what my parents call “paying forward”. My job puts me in a position everyday to help others but I think it is my upbringing by my parents that puts the wants and needs of others before my own both on and off duty. Family and friends are first and foremost. I was fortunate to have parents who were great role models and did the same things for my sisters and I that I now try to emulate and do for my children. How do you juggle being a bachelor… and a father? At this point in my life, my children are my priority and there really is no juggling between being a father and a bachelor. I never planned on my marriage failing or being a single father but you make the best of it. The children are caught in the middle as innocent bystanders and grow up so quickly. I feel it is my job to be there for them and support them while they are still young and demand more of my time and attention. LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM | JUNE 2012

In one short, easy, very comfortable treatment, you can experience a marked improvement in the appearance of ďŹ ne lines, skin tightening and wrinkles for up to six months! We are seeing wonderful results in as few as 1-4 treatments. The technology of the PellevĂŠ system sets it apart from other wrinkle-reducing treatments. When you are treated with PellevĂŠ, a more focused Radio Frequency energy is delivered to areas of the skin where elasticity is lacking and lines have begun to develop. This energy heats the skin, causing it to begin producing collagen. Collagen is a key component in healthy, toned-looking skin. It delivers heat to deep layers of the skin where fat resides. This â&#x20AC;&#x153;controlled focused energyâ&#x20AC;? spurs the contraction of these deep tissues for an overall smoothing effect. The heat energy also stimulates the production of new collagen over time, resulting in ďŹ rmer, tighter, smoother skin. The practitioner adjusts the strength of the delivered energy based on feedback from the patient throughout the session. The PellevĂŠ system requires no anesthesia and treatment can be conducted in as little as 15 minutes per area. We simply, apply a thin layer

of gel to your face prior to treatment. Most patients experience only a warming sensation on the skin when the PellevĂŠ hand piece is applied. Patients often report that immediately after treatment skin feels tighter similar to Botox. When it takes effect, most patients often experience immediate results, and a reduction in the visibility of wrinkles at the treatment sites. Over the course of the next six months, you will continue to see smoother, more beautiful skin. While many patients see results after just one session of PellevĂŠ, we may recommend multiple treatments to help you achieve your optimal aesthetic goals. The total number of treatments can vary and is based on your individual skin needs. It takes up to two months for the full effects of PellevĂŠ to be seen. There is no downtime or side effects except the ocassional very mild swelling or redness which normally resides in an hour.

NYY Steak

DELIVERS SEASONED TASTES IN A CHAMPIONSHIP ATMOSPHERE

BY RANDI PRESS

THE OPEN GLASS KITCHEN ALLOWS YOU TO ENJOY A VIEW OF THE VARIOUS CHEFS CREATING THE SEASONED TASTES FOR THE EVENING. CHEF WILLIAM PHILLIPS HAS HELPED NYY STEAK OVER THE LAST SEVEN YEARS IN TAMPA AS THE BUTCHER CUTTING ALL THE VARIOUS MEAT SELECTIONS.

Developed for the sophisticated, discriminating fine-diner, NYY Steak delivers an extraordinary and entertaining experience from the moment you enter the restaurant. The concept of NYY Steak was founded in The Bronx, New York in the spring of 2009 as the premier fine dining destination of the New Yankee Stadium, in its inaugural season. The concept was established as a joint venture between the New York Yankees and Seminole Gaming Entertainment. The Yankees are the premiere sports franchise in the world and hold a record 27 world baseball championships; The Seminole tribe is America’s only unconquered tribe. NYY Steak is fashioned after Seminole Gaming’s award winning Council Oak Steaks & Seafood restaurants in their casinos in Tampa and Hollywood, Florida. The walk from the north entrance of the Seminole Coconut Creek Casino into the front of the restaurant was designed to transport you to the entry way of Yankee Stadium. The thought and design that went into creating the visual was absolutely inventive. A New York Yankee true encounter here in Broward County. The entrance once inside is understated. The cocktail lounge is modern, inviting and leads you to the hostess area where a glass butcher shop and knife wall are featured. As a purveyor of U.S.D.A. Prime 21 to 28 day dry-aged beef, NYY serves steaks, chops, prime-rib, chicken, fresh seafood and shellfish offerings of shrimp, crab, oysters, clams, lobsters and fin fish.

JUNE 2012 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM

Once inside, dark woods, classic booth and table settings create an ambiance that is comfortable and clubby without being intimidating. The open glass kitchen allows you to enjoy a view of the various chefs creating the seasoned tastes for the evening. Chef William Phillips takes great pride in the choices displayed in the glass butcher shop. He is now the restaurant chef creating the menu locally beginning in February when the establishment opened. Your eyes can also encounter the pastry chef, Mark Weideman creating desserts that will entice your sweet need and excite your palate. There is a beautiful glass view into the wine cellar that will inspire you to review their finest wine offerings. And, the infamous Yankee Signature Walls and classic Yankee images throughout can maintain one’s attention and encourage storytelling all evening. We are greeted by Petrus Louis Turcano, the general manager from Romania and our sommelier along with Earl, our server who knows the history about the joint venture and all things NYY Steak. Both are genuine in their approach and immediately share what’s top on the menu to enjoy and pair. He mentions the New Zealand Lamb, domestic and dryaged rubbed with roasted garlic herbs and sea salt placed on a tomato risotto with fresh mint leaves. Already we lean forward with interest. “Leave room for the flaming volcano,” Earl states. “You absolutely must taste it…it’s covered in heath crunch and 151 proof Rum is poured on top.” I am now focused on having dessert first of course!

The experience becomes more nostalgic when your plate is set. The Yankees have retired fifteen numbers for sixteen players, the most in Major League Baseball. Each dinner plate at NYY Steak has a retired number on it. And the tasting begins. A basket of pretzel bread with white cheddar cheese and whole grain mustard, asiago crisps and cinnamon with sugar signature crisps accompanied by salted butter is placed on the table. Delicious! Tuna tartar, beef (sirloin) carpaccio, oyster rockefeller with sambuca are placed in the middle of the table. My mouth watering and eyes dancing found my two favorites quickly. Colossal stuffed barbeque shrimp wrapped in bacon placed over cilantro popcorn blended with strips of bacon will give your taste buds a fantastic, tangy experience while the scallops with blackberry reduction are crispy on top and melt like butter in your mouth. My two favorites will become your “must haves!” But, if you are a beef carpaccio fan, the seracha (Vietnamese hot sauce) served razor thin with toast points will kick your heartbeat up a pace! There are several salads that are wonderful but don’t miss the head of baby iceberg served with crumbled blue cheese, bacon and French dressing accompanied by a shot of a vodka martini marinated blue cheese stuffed olive. Entrees included twin South African lobster tails broiled with lemon butter, Chilean sea bass with a red wine reduction garnished with micro greens that was crispy on the outside and flaky on the inside served over a wonderful risotto. The dryaged twenty one to twenty eight day, twenty ounce center cut NY strip almost looks like a filet. It’s flavorful,

tender, charred and buttery. But, this can’t rival the “unsurpassed” winner of the evening, the long bone cowboy Ribeye “branded” with your initials in the bone. Crispy on the outside, tender, juicy on the inside it is the signature steak to experience. Coated in peanut oil, the chef explains they do not trim this at all therefore the flavor remains…and it is beyond words. But don’t take my word for it, taste it for yourself! The sides accompanying the entrees are worthy of tasting. The corn is fire roasted with fresh bacon, sweet cream and herbs. The mushroom buttons are touched with olive oil, garlic and rosemary herbs. And the creamed spinach is combined with shallots and lemon pepper. All the sides are full of flavor and are enough to share. Remember I mentioned the flaming volcano for dessert? This is a show and is worth tasting. If you want something more all-American, try the over-sized chocolate chip cookies filled with vanilla ice cream accompanied with fudge on the plate, sprinkles, raspberry garnished and touched with fresh whipped cream. It’s a mixture of everything wonderful. Don’t hesitate to order the chocolate blackout cake if you are a chocolate lover. This is sinful and enough to take home for a mid-night treat! I don’t want to leave you without sharing two fantastic options from the lounge menu. They can be ordered for dinner, but they are not featured on the menu. The lobster sandwich is crisp on the outside and filled with chunks of lobster served with tomato soup. It is fantastic! The NY aged steak sandwich with fries is served with balsamic ketchup. It is my new favorite condiment! This is great to share even as an appetizer. The experience at NYY Steak will be a treat whether you are a Yankee fan or fancy other sports. The chef’s are approachable, the wait staff are impeccable and the cool vibe will make the experience worthy of more than one visit. For more information, seminolecoconutcreekcasino.com/ dining/nyy-steak, 5550 NW 40th Street, Coconut Creek FL 33073. Open for dinner :Sunday, Monday, Thursday: 5pm-10pm, Friday & Saturday: 5pm-11pm with late night at Legends Lounge open until 2am.
