hocolate. How do we love thee? Let us count the ways. It’s luxurious, creamy, rich, soothing, sensual and satisfying. Americans crave it so much we eat more than nine pounds per person annually.

It’s only fitting then, that this object of our desire is linked to love and romance. “After being in the chocolate business for 15 years, I’ve found that chocolate symbolizes love because it makes people happy,” says Amy Dunfee, owner of Red Bank Chocolate Shoppe. The connection goes back to the Aztecs, who considered their spicy chocolate drink xocoatl, an aphrodisiac. By the early 1600s, a sweeter version of “drinking chocolate” was popular in Europe as a cure-all and love potion. But, the association between romance and chocolate wasn’t cemented until 1861 when Richard Cadbury packaged “eating chocolates” in heart-shaped boxes adorned with cupids and roses for Valentine’s Day. Romance-crazed Victorians bought the beautiful boxes for their sweethearts, and after the candy was eaten, saved them to hold love letters and other mementos. Science is involved here, too. Chocolate contains tryptophan, which makes serotonin, a chemical that helps us feel good and puts us in the mood for love. Eating chocolate releases mood-boosting endorphins and reduces levels of the stress hormone cortisol. There may be other healing powers in the sweet stuff. Early civilizations used cacao-based remedies to treat infections, coughs, gout, dysentery, rashes, fever, and even seizures. Today, modern medicine believes chocolate can benefit cardio-vascular systems, improve blood circulation, lower blood pressure, and lower cholesterol. Studies show flavanol-rich cocoa and chocolate can improve blood-flow to the brain, and enhance performance, alertness and cognitive skills.

Red Bank Chocolate Shoppe

Sorry, milk chocolate fans; this doesn’t apply to you. The more cocoa is processed and diluted with milk, sugar and butter, the fewer the health perks. Experts recommend dark chocolate with 70 to 80 percent cocoa—limited to seven ounces a week—to get the maximum benefit. More reasons to opt for dark: it’s loaded with antioxidants, and research shows it offers a greater feeling of satiety than milk chocolate, requiring less to soothe a craving. Fortunately, ‘tis the season for chocolate, and Red Bank’s shops and restaurants are paying homage to the decadent treat.

Red Bank Chocolate Shoppe

At Red Bank Chocolate Shoppe, 17 White Street, Dunfee has a huge variety of chocolate gift boxes—including those iconic heart-shaped ones. Other customer favorites include chocolate-covered strawberries and, “anything that combines our homemade caramel and peanut butter, especially the Red Bank Twist,” a pretzel dipped in caramel, slathered with peanut butter and enrobed in chocolate.

According to Ayca User, founding owner and general manager of Antoinette Boulangerie, 32 Monmouth St., the French patisserie offers individual, heart-shaped Chocolate Mousse Cakes with Hand-dipped Chocolate Strawberries. And, chocolate is paired with raspberries, chocolate cake, ganache and raspberry compote in Chocolate Raspberry Indulgence. Sugarush

Lauren Phillips, chef-owner with Claudette Herring of Via 45, 45 Broad St., says chocolate desserts are on the menu year-round, but adds, “We really step it up a notch around Valentine’s Day.” Favorites include Chocolate Fudge Caramel Sea Salt Brownies, Chocolate Flourless Cake, and White Chocolate Raspberry-Infused Cheesecake. At Sugarush, 37 East Front St., co-owner Amanda Porter says vanilla is usually the most popular cupcake flavor, except around Valentine’s Day when chocolate, and cocoa-based red velvet flavors rule. “People see them as more decadent,” she says. Their Red Devil, a red velvet cupcake stuffed with chocolate mousse, iced with triple-chocolate fudge, and topped with chocolate chips, “Is a chocolate lovers dream,” she says.

Molly Pitcher Inn

Antoinette Boulangerie

Whipped: A Creperie & Dessert Bar, 6 Monmouth St., is serving Godiva Chocolate French Toast for breakfast, an entire hot chocolate menu, and a special Red Velvet Crepe with Chocolate-Covered Strawberries and Cream Cheese Frosting. According to Nick Napoletano, who owns the restaurant with girlfriend Erica Lieberman, the decadent creation inspired a sweet proposal last Valentine’s Day. “A young man asked us to put a note on the dish that read, ‘It would be crepe if you would be my girlfriend!’ I think it worked out pretty well for him,” Napoletano says. Kids love the chocolate workshops at Chocolate Works, 36 Broad St., where they can make a personal chocolate pretzel pizza, or decorate a chocolate lollipop. But, Randi Garfinkel, who opened the business with her family last August, says adults go for strawberries dipped in white, pink, dark or milk chocolate. “They even look like hearts, so they’ve become a symbol of love and decadence,” she says. The signature Valentine’s drink at the Molly Pitcher Inn is a Tuxedo Strawberry Martini with vodka, Godiva chocolate liqueurs, strawberry puree, heavy cream, and chocolate syrup. The dessert menu features Chocolate Hazelnut Cake with Dark Chocolate-Espresso Ganache, and “Fantaisie Dessert au Chocolat Pour Deux,” a treat meant to be shared. “In my world, chocolate is the ultimate food group,” says executive chef Bill Roll. “It can turn a lousy day into a great one. It’s fabulous as a candy, a cake, or my favorite, a warm chocolate chip cookie. What’s not to like?”

Public “Lives“

By TOM CHESEK

2 BRIDGE AVE With nearly a century’s worth of pooled experience in the field RED BANK of higher education—and a litany of accomplishments that have included a long tenure as Dean at a respected university, as well as the co-founding of one of the regions most acclaimed theatrical companies—one might think that Robert Rechnitz and Kenneth Stunkel might simply be content these days to rest on those proverbial laurels. With the coming of the new year, however, the octogenarian gents have reset the clock, in anticipation of the public’s initial look at a project that finds the longtime friends and colleagues embarking on a whole new chapter as first-time playwrights. “Lives of Reason” makes its world premiere in January as the latest offering from Red Bank’s Two River Theater Company, the celebrated professional troupe that Rechnitz and his wife Joan founded during his days as a professor in the English department of Monmouth University. It was there on the West Long Branch campus of what was then Monmouth College, that Bob Rechnitz first met Ken

World Premiere Engagement January 15/opening thru February 7 matinee & evening performances

Stunkel, a history professor who would go on to serve as what Rechnitz calls “a very significant Dean, who knows the game extremely well” in the course of a 47-year career that would find him working into his ninth decade. It should come as no surprise then, that their script is an ensemble piece set within the ivy-dripping halls (or, more to the point, the faculty cocktail parties) of academia. “Academia has a lot of warts, and we set out to write a satire on it,” explains Stunkel, who drafted the first version of the play that will be presented, in one intermission-free act in the more intimately scaled "black box" Marion G. Huber performance space (an alternate, two-act version of the script exists as well). “It was Ken's heavy plow that broke this land,” says Rechnitz, who expressed an interest in developing Stunkel’s draft in discussions with Two River Theater Company Artistic Director John Dias.“ Ken and I spent three years meeting and trying to make it into a play...and after the reading we did here, people responded as if it WERE a play!” Set entirely at a party thrown by an ambitious English professor in his apartment, the play throws ten distinct characters (including straying faculty spouses, embittered educators, and the son of the college’s moneybags founder) into a volatile mix that comes to a head when “one woman’s secret passions explodes.” While the playwrights insist that the plot is pure fiction, Rechnitz acknowledges that “plenty of it comes from our personal experience...we draw from all that we've seen and heard.” The ten actors include William Parry, an original cast member of three Sondheim musicals, plus fellow Broadway veterans Mairin Lee (as Ilona), Maurice Jones, Peter Rini, Jay Russell and John C. Vennema. Returnees to the Two River stage include Maureen Silliman (The Glass Menagerie), Philip Goodwin (As You Like It)...and Patrick Monaghan, a graduate to the mainstage who cut his teeth in the all-high school casts of the company's "Little Shakespeare" productions. The production also represents a homecoming of sorts for a figure who played an important role in the early seasons of Two River Theater Company: Jonathan Fox, the former TRTC Artistic Director who went on to a successful career with Ensemble Theatre Company in Santa Barbara, CA, directs “Lives of Reason.” Director Jonathan Fox

Stunkel, the rookie dramatist, confesses to being “amazed at how many people are involved” in bringing the written word to fully staged life, while observing that while the script takes its shots at the academic profession, “at the same time there's a special love of learning in there...the play is, in part, a defense of learning.”

Indeed, the two veteran educators “learned quite a bit about what is a play” from their experience of creating a show from scratch, with Stunkel likening the process to “jumping off a cliff, thinking you can fly...although when you jump off a cliff, you can see where you're going.” Rechnitz, for his part, finds particular fascination in the fact that “here we are in our 80s...and we, by God, wrote a play!”

GIANA MARTINO To say that Industry Salon owner and Red Bank resident Giana Martino loves to do hair is an understatement.

INDUSTRY SALON

“It is my mission to make hair beautiful.” Raised in Marlboro, the Monmouth County native spent her childhood watching her mother cut and style hair for clients out of their salon. “I’d sit there for hours watching her work,” she remembers. “I grew up in that salon! Women would come in and leave over-the-moon happy with their new looks.” It wasn’t long before she took on the family business. “Every single Barbie I owned had a different haircut. I even cut my own hair—a mullet—much to my mother’s dismay.” Styling has always come naturally to Giana. During her high school years, her friends would beg their parents for money so she could take them shopping. They’d return with entirely new looks. “I did everything from revamping wardrobes, to makeup and hair, to boxed-dye jobs.” Her entrepreneurial spirit didn’t end there. “Growing up, Red Bank was where everyone would go to get their hair done. I decided I wanted to own a salon there.” Working non-stop to soak up as much knowledge about the industry and her craft as she could, and saving all on her own, Giana made that dream a reality in June of 2015. “This is a dream ten years in the making.” Climbing the stairs at 20 Broad Street to her 2nd floor SoHo-esque private boutique, Giana walks to the windows overlooking downtown Red Bank. “I wanted to be in a prime location with a local, neighborhood feel,” she says, as she watches the hustle and bustle of Broad Street. “This town has so much to offer, and the local businesses show each other unending support. I have clients who work in several of the local shops here.” Specializing in Bridal and as a Master Colorist, Giana is no stranger to glamour. Her styling work will be seen in the Vogue Magazine ‘73 Questions’ spotlight, promoting the new ‘Zoolander 2’ comedy due out next year, as well as a high fashion editorial for the London Sunday Times, featuring looks by Yves St Laurent, Chanel and Christian Dior. She has also styled for MTV and renowned modeling and talent agency, Wilhelmina Models. “I constantly strive to keep educating myself, and to keep up with the newest trends. My salon is my outlet for creativity.”

SYLVIA S. COSTANTINO ESQ. “Sylvia is a powerhouse, offering her abilities to those who find themselves in a heartbreaking and sensitive situation. We will be forever grateful for her service and good heart.”/L.P.

NEW JERSEY DIVORCE & FAMILY LAW

Client accolades like this one (and there are many more to be found on NJFamilyLawDivorce.com) are as proud a part of Sylvia Costantino’s law practice as the professional degrees and achievement awards displayed on the walls of her new Red Bank office on Rector Place. An experienced New Jersey divorce and family law attorney with a modus operandi of honest, aggressive, caring and compassionate representation, Sylvia Costantino Esq. knows that divorce is an extremely intricate legal and emotional process. Without proper counsel and a sound strategy for success—during and after divorce—a person can get mired in disillusionment and pain. Sylvia makes sure this does not happen, with the belief that there is almost no divorce case that cannot be settled amicably, approaching each case from that perspective. During a divorce, the family dynamic is in flux. Most people feel “lost, alone, powerless, and scared,“ Sylvia explains. “They want to know you’re in their corner and will fight ceaselessly for them." And fight she does, having successfully represented individuals and families from Monmouth to Somerset Counties, and the surrounding areas in the state. In 2013 and again, coming up in 2016, Super Lawyers magazines recognized Sylvia as a “New Jersey Super Lawyer—Rising Star.” The Staten Island native entered the world of law as a legal secretary and, eventually, at a medical malpractice firm where “…my former boss, Steven T. Halperin, Esq., was my first and greatest mentor,” she says. She began night classes at Rutgers University/New Brunswick, graduating with Highest Honors and a B.A. in English. Rutgers Law School/Newark followed where she earned her J.D. After passing both the New York and New Jersey Bars, she served as Judicial Law Clerk for then–New Jersey Family Law Judge, the Hon. Michael A. Guadagno, J.A.D. who now sits in the Appellate Division. “Judge Guadagno’s passion for family law inspired me,” Sylvia recalls. “The rest is history." And quite a history it has been. In 2011, after working as an associate attorney with Ansell, Grimm & Aaron, P.C, she opened her own firm in Holmdel, specializing in all aspects of family law. Steady growth soon demanded more staff and space. In 2015, she relocated to a handsome remodeled 1920’s Victorian on Red Bank’s Rector Place. “From the moment I walked in the front door, it felt like my home-away-fromhome,” she says. “It was my dream to create a serene, peaceful, and welcoming environment for my clients to interact with me and my staff. Now we are in the center of it all. Red Bank—the hub of Monmouth County. Clients love it here.” Most of all, they love what Sylvia is able to do for them. “The Law Office of Sylvia S. Costantino made a very difficult time in my life a lot easier…Speak to the rest and then hire the best. She gets 5 stars in my book.”/T.C.

A VERY SPECIAL SPACE

T

he First Church of Christ, Scientist at 211 Broad Street in Red Bank has stood for decades. Its majestic steeple soars above its neighbors. In recent years, with a shrinking congregation, the church board contemplated a move to smaller quarters and the sale of the handsome brick structure. The congregation needed rescue and former Wall Street executive Bob Silver, president of The Bravitas Group, Montclair, was it. Working with business partner Jay Schweppe, Silver brought the church back to life as a 16,000 square foot boutique office complex, while providing a small sanctuary in the revitalization for the church congregation.

Since 2006, The Bravitas Group had converted eight historic Montclair structures into modern, customized offices, maintaining much of the architectural spine of the early 20th century buildings. The plan for the Red Bank property received strong endorsement from the town. Bravitas worked closely with borough officials to convert the building into a church and offices on property that had both commercial and residential zoning. "This was the first conversion outside of Montclair," Silver says, "and, like the others, we were able to go start to finish in two years.”

211 BROAD STREET | RED BANK

The project was completed meeting strict environmental standards that earned the building the United States Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification. “The building was re-insulated and thermal windows added in the rebuild,” Silver explains. “VOC free (volatile organic compounds) paint and adhesives were used in the conversion and the building's efficient heat exchange HVAC unit does the job for a paltry $1,600/month.”

In January, photographer Cate Scaglione signed the first office lease for her business, Life As Fine Art Photography & Spa, and commitments for the remaining twelve units sold out within sixty days. The building opened in August 2015. Each office unit is customized for the tenant to make the most use of space and the architectural heritage of the church. The offices are arranged on two levels and a 3,000 square foot addition above what was the church annex. Many of the Church's classic arched windows were salvaged and used as part of the decor and wood was recovered during conversion and turned into tables and other furnishings. Tenants have access to a conference room on the first floor and there are 90 on-site parking spaces. Silver says that he continues to look for suitable structures for conversion in Red Bank. "They must meet Bravitas criteria," he stresses, "which include close to downtown stores and restaurants, off-street parking, and a structure with classic lines that can be brought back to beautiful."

y his own admission, 2015 was likely the toughest, most challenging year of Paul Mazzella’s life. The good news? He looks forward to 2016 being one of the best. This expectation is more than wishful thinking. The owner of Eastpointe Health & Fitness in Atlantic Highlands does not like to fail. “I’m a businessman,” says the former Army 1st lieutenant and Wall Streeter. “I know this will work, but it’s going to take more hard work to get there.”

He’s done it before. In 2001 when Paul acquired a small gym—at the same location in the Eastpointe Shopping Center—the company was “on the verge of collapse.” He made it profitable. He then expanded, and made it profitable again. He expanded a third time. “It was touch and go, but we made it,” he says. The most recent, most ambitious push is where he’s wanted to go all along—the culmination of nearly 15 years in the business.

TS BUSINESS LTH & FITNESS

Necessity (serving more clients) and opportunity (the space became available) caused and enabled the company to grow once again. The new expansion includes the relocation of the gym (weights and exercise machines), the health and medical components (physical therapy, chiropractic, massage, acupuncture), nutrition counseling, personal training, and a variety of classes (body sculpt, yoga, spin, Zumba), as well as offices and special-purpose areas (including childcare) into adjoining and inter-connected 11,500 square-foot quarters that feature 20-foot ceilings and more than $750,000 in renovations. There is a new exercise mezzanine, as well as new men and ladies' locker rooms with saunas.

“If you want to get somewhere, we’re here to help you and show you how.”

“We’re in the results business,” explains Paul. “If you want to get somewhere, we’re here to help you and show you how,” he says. Consider this small, but telling, example: the annual autumn EPH&F “Jeans Challenge.” Every woman who completed the program this year—29 out of 32— fit into jeans that were two sizes smaller than what they were previously wearing. In general, of those who join any of the various programs and show up and work hard at it, “some 80% to 90% change positively how they feel and look,” Paul maintains.

Results notwithstanding, Paul believes there are a number of factors that set Eastpointe Health & Fitness apart. “I like to think of us as a very economical high-end club,” he explains. “It’s not overpriced and it’s not cheap, but, for what you pay here, you get quite a bit.” Another huge plus is that the club is a family-run operation. “You feel that when you come in,” he says. Paul worked alone until 2007 when his brother, Jay, came on board, bringing with him his chiropractic practice. Today, “Dr Jay” runs Eastpointe Integrated Healthcare, a separate business but under the EPH&F banner, which combines chiropractic care, physical therapy, massage therapy, and acupuncture. Then Kim—Paul and Jay’s sister and a certified nutritionist—left her job at Merrill Lynch to join her brothers. “At which point,” notes Paul, “she became my assistant manager and we went head-first into the nutrition business.” Three years ago, the company added Shore Results, an all-inclusive, individualized training program, and, for post-workout recovery, tasty Shore Shakes. Not long after first becoming a silent investor in EPH&F, Paul realized that the integration of various aspects of health and fitness was vital for success. After graduating college on an Army scholarship, he worked in New York for Pricewaterhouse, moved on to Citibank, and then went to a trading tech company. Hardly a fitness fanatic, the Keansburg native did enjoy working out, and he had saved some money. “I don’t know that I had a real plan, just that I liked the idea of it as an investment,” he recalls. It soon became a full-time, hands-on endeavor. He became a National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer, started learning the fitness business, and found himself liking it. A lot. While contracts are required for special EPH&F training programs, signing up for a basic membership (which includes a thorough customer evaluation) is “very straight forward, no pressure,” says Paul. You pay for the first month, and then decide if you want to continue. “No one is tied into anything. I don’t want to keep people here who don’t want to be here.” But if you stay, expect results...and to see a lot of Paul. He’s always there, along with his brother and sister.

IT’S A HAPPY, HEALTHY DOG'S LIFE! Canines and their owners love The Dog Spaw of Little Silver. Why wouldn't they! Dana Ujobagy and her team of seven groomers wash, cut, trim, style and pamper the coats of dogs seven days a week in their pet salon or from two mobile vans. Besides helping dogs look good, Ujobagy cares deeply about their health and provides free nutritional advice that has helped owners understand the root cause of many issues. “Allergies, digestive problems, skin rashes...many times it is simply food related,” Ujobagy explains.

Ujobagy got into the business more than a decade ago selling collars and clothes for dogs on-line. She was featured in a 2005 edition of USA Today. "I am a dog lover and the business was a labor of love," she explains. After opening a retail store in Red Bank, she soon realized that dogs needed more and wanted to help owners learn what would bring out the true beauty in their pets. She changed her focus, expanded to grooming and canine nutrition, and moved to Little Silver in 2012.

Dana Ujobagy offers healthy dog treats.

Groomer Ebony Otero works on Starlight.

Her cozy store is packed with all natural, organic and USA-made treats, chews and food for all breeds of dogs that their loving owners appreciate.

"Dogs, like humans, need moisture in their food, not just relying on overly processed grain," advises Ujobagy. "You need to feed your dogs to thrive, not just survive." The Dog Spaw offers grain-free kibble, as well as canned to raw foods that are manufactured in small batches, many times by family owned companies.

The Art and Science of Surgery FINDING THE SURGEON WHO’S RIGHT FOR YOU

E

lecting to undergo surgery is a big decision and most of us don’t enter into it lightly. We want the best that modern science can provide, but we also want to feel supported.

by APRIL GUILLERME for Riverview Medical Center

It’s important to remember that all surgery, whether inpatient or outpatient, comes with some degree of risk. That’s why it’s crucial to choose the right surgeon. While a surgeon’s knowledge, reputation, and skill should certainly play a part in your decision-making process, it should not be the only factor taken into consideration.

“While sometimes science is the only choice, other times the art of conversation or connection helps to make the decision.”

Was the surgeon attentive? Did they take their time with you or did they seem rushed? Do you feel as though your questions were answered thoroughly and in an honest manner? Was a level of trust established? Did they ask questions about your life and what you hoped surgery would correct? According to surgeon James Brock, M.D. of Riverview Medical Center, these are all questions that the right surgeon will ask in order to truly understand a patient’s needs and make the best decision possible. “I’ve had patients come to me after being told that they required major surgery when the procedure would not really benefit them in the end,” said Dr. Brock. “I’ve also had patients who were told that they didn’t require surgery at all, when in fact they did. It’s all about taking your time with a patient, listening, and getting to know them and their lifestyle.”

Experts agree that patient’s should think about what blend of experience and personality make a doctor the right choice for their needs. At the end of the day, it’s a very personal choice. “The patient, physician relationship is one of the most important components of surgery,” said another Riverview surgeon, Joseph E. Cauda, M.D. “You want to select a surgeon who sees all the aspects of your life and who will truly see you as a person, not just a procedure. That’s the surgeon who will say to you, ‘Yes, I could do this, but I don’t think it’s the best decision for you.’” In addition to their individual practice experience of over 20 years, Dr. Brock and Dr. Cauda— vascular and general surgeons associated with Riverview Medical Center—utilize a host of advanced technologies to perform both traditional and minimally invasive surgeries. With scientific advancements in robotic surgery, techniques such as combined endoscopic and laparoscopic surgery, and digitally integrated operating rooms for complicated surgeries, more than 200 surgeons choose to care for their patients at Riverview.

James Brock, M.D. and Joseph E. Cauda, M.D.

Surgeries performed at Riverview include: breast, colon and rectal, endovascular, general surgery, gynecology, maxillofacial, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, orthopedic, otolaryngology, plastic surgery, spine surgery, thoracic surgery, urology, and vascular surgery. Not only is Riverview dedicated to bringing in the best physicians and surgeons based on their skillset, but also based on their bedside manner; because perfecting that, is truly an art.

To find a surgeon who’s right for you, call 800.560.9990 or visit physicians.meridianhealth.com. To view Riverview physicians talking about why experience matters, please visit RiverviewMedicalCenter.com/ExperienceMatters. 36

KITCH

has found its

“One table can feed...Everybody!” say Joe Durso and Rick Ivone, Jr., co-owners of Kitch Organic, the new health-oriented eatery that opened in October on Red Bank’s West Side. “Of course, it helps that people love what they eat once they’re here!” With more than a 60% customer return rate, Kitch Organic is doing something really right.

NICHE Red Bank & Beyond

A case in point: when the free range, organic turkey meatloaf was dropped from the menu—a deliciously inelegant dish intended as a short-term special—customers’ reaction said a lot. “People were screaming at us about it,” says Joe. Now, it’s back, along with entrees that include ginger glazed tempeh and a host of vegan, vegetarian, and other options. The cold-pressed juices, and gluten and wheat-free baked goods are popular menu items—all fresh, all organic, sourced from local markets and top-tier distributors. Joe loves food as much as the next guy, in this case his business partner, Rick Ivone Jr., a life-coach and personal trainer turned restaurateur. “It’s great seeing how happy everyone is when they eat here,” says Rick. “We serve nutrient-dense food. People are radiant when they leave.” The goal at Kitch Organic is to offer the healthiest, most delicious and nutritious life experience at a place where everyone can eat and connect at one table. That means a person who is a vegan can dine next to a friend who is a meat eater and they’re both happy. The idea came from The Plant Café Organic, a restaurant in San Francisco Rick had visited in 2010 with a friend. He came away asking, “Why don’t we have anything like this back in Red Bank”? When Rick shared the experience with Joe a couple of years later, the “big idea” clicked—but it would take a couple of more years of planning and more than a dozen trips to the West Coast to realize the dream. Although Joe and Rick were both new to the restaurant business, they had a love of good food and healthy eating in common. Joe, a 2005 Christian Brothers Academy graduate and talented baseball player, seriously injured his shoulder in a post-college pro tryout. He went to work for his father, a local financial advisor, and later, at a hedge fund in Manhattan. Through his father, he met Rick, a fellow Red Bank local. When Rick asked Joe what he really wanted to do, Joe told him he had always wanted to get into the food industry. This resonated with Rick, a Type One Diabetic, whose own health and 30 year career in wellness had proven an important truth for him: “Healthy food is an integral part of building a healthy life through lifestyle.” The owners describe the painstakingly renovated space Kitch Organic occupies on Leighton Avenue as “a West Coast-driven building with a kind of East Coast mentality and a very Napa Valley, clean industrial-feel interior.” Inside, there are 20 seats; outside, tables seat 12. The restaurant is BYOB and both Joe and Rick are inspired when it come to creating mixers with cold pressed juices. Jennifer Freeman, a graduate of Natural Gourmet in New York who has worked at prestigious area restaurants, is central to the team. To Joe and Rick, she’s the “backbone (and backyard) of our business.” A master gardener, she is in charge of planting, raising and harvesting Kitch Organic’s backyard crops. She also makes a mean Bloody Mary mix. What’s the next “big idea” for Kitch Organic? There are plenty of them. Expanding catering...more juice programs...cooking classes and workshops in the spring. And don’t be surprised to find more Kitch locations cropping up soon. 38

ASIAN NOODLE BOWL Serves 2

Cutting Carbs Without Cutting Flavor

H

ealthy, low-carb dishes don't have to be bland. Just because you're looking to cut down on carbs doesn't mean you'll have to sacrifice your favorite flavors and textures. Believe it or not, you can eat consciously and hang on to your favorites. Delectable noodles can be made from broccoli stems, beets, zucchini, parsnips, carrots, butternut squash, or spaghetti squash. With spiralizers available at just about every kitchen store, making your own veggie noodles at home is no longer laborious.

A great way to use veggie noodles is in this Asian Noodle Bowl. It highlights textures and temperatures in one simple dish. Keep your appetite intrigued with this go-to Asian meal. Many Asian dishes incorporate ingredients cut to specific dimensions, hot components, cold components, and elements of sweet, sour, and spicy - making each bite different. Recipes like this offer a variety of flavors and textures throughout the dish, making healthy meals made with whole ingredients fun and interesting to eat. This is key to eating healthy and getting the whole family involved. Serve this bowl with a variety of toppings for everyone to create their own masterpiece.

INGREDIENTS 3 cups shredded spaghetti squash 4 cups low sodium vegetable broth 2/3 cup sliced shiitake mushrooms 4 green onions 2 tablespoons ginger 2 cloves garlic 2 teaspoons Chinese five spice 1 jalapeno pepper 2 tablespoons chopped basil 1 cup alfalfa sprouts 2 teaspoons sriracha hot sauce 1/4 lime in wedges

DIRECTIONS Cut spaghetti squash in half, remove seeds, poke the skin with a fork in about 10-15 places, and then microwave face down for 10 minutes. In a saucepan, combine broth, garlic, ginger, white side of green onions, and Chinese five spice. Bring to a boil. Slice jalapenos, basil, mushrooms, and green onions. Shred cooked spaghetti squash with a fork and place in bowl. Top squash with broth, garnish with toppings, and enjoy. Recipe courtesy of Chef Dan Vogt of Hello Chef

Café 28 A True Crossroads of Mediterranean Cuisines

H

ow is it we can pass something all the time and not really see it? Such is the case with Café 28. The tiny, glass-fronted Red Bank eatery next to Toymasters on White Street has been open for five years—seven days a week, for breakfast, lunch and dinner, (Monday to Saturday 7:30am to 9pm, Sunday 11am to 6pm)—yet, somehow, seems undiscovered as one of the area’s top spots for Mediterranean food. Adding to the confusion, the eatery is often mistaken for a sub shop, which the location briefly once was, and the menu partly still is. “People see my place, but don’t know what is inside,” says owner Mohammed Elbery, a native Egyptian who settled in the U.S. 23 years ago.

The menu is an eclectic melting pot of Greek, Lebanese, Isreali, Egyptian, Turkish, Italian, American and other ethnic dishes. Falafel (vegetable and chickpea patties), gyros (thinly sliced rotisseried lamb or beef), baba ganoush (roasted and ground eggplant), ful medames (fava bean stew), rice-stuffed grape leaves, and a delicious marinated eggplant with tahini sauce, are offered alongside turkey subs and tuna sandwiches. Lamb sausage, tabbouleh, moussaka, vegetable couscous, spanakopita, and other dishes rotate in as specials, many of which are vegetarian. “Why not?” says Elbery. “We’re all blended, all the same Mediterranean culture.” Elbery runs the entire business solo; he takes the orders, prepares the food, serves it in the immaculate dining area, or packs it to-go (there are just four tables, so customers often order for takeout). Everything is made from scratch and to order. He doesn’t Café 28 offers an array of dishes that have traveled straight from the Mediterranean to your plate. have so much as a single scoop of chicken salad ready in advance, Mohammed and even makes his own hummus, labneh (a zesty yogurt-based sauce), Elbery holding tzatziki (a refreshing cucumber-yogurt sauce), tahini (a type of sesame an Edra, a paste), and other condiments in small batches throughout the day. Middle Eastern (Customers frequently ask for these flavorful sauces in lieu of traditional cooking pot. condiments on the American-style sandwiches.) Elbery even makes the desserts, which might include Baklava, Tiramisu, Kataifi (a delicate Greek pastry resembling angel-hair pasta), or Basbousa (a sweet semolina cake). He has never taken a day off in five years—even putting in half-days on Thanksgiving and Christmas when the café is closed. “I would feel bad if a new customer came in and I wasn’t here,” he says. Elbery frequently offers suggestions and tasting samples, encouraging customers new to the cuisine to, “Try this,” “Taste that,” or “I think you’ll like this better.” It’s all so good you may end up ordering more than you planned, and in the process, discovering a gem that’s been hiding in plain sight.
