Healthy New Year: Finding a Greener Space

3 Jan


So, let’s start this New Year off healthy. Joel Kahn, a Detroit cardiologist, opened up a Motown restaurant with his son Daniel. It’s GreenSpace Cafe  located in Ferndale, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. Not only do you get to experience great food, you have the stamp of approval from a heart doctor.

The menu features some delicious vegan options like the teriyaki mushrooms (above) which are glazed with house-made bourbon teriyaki and garnished with Asian slaw, bib lettuce and chives.

Of course, there’s a Michigan salad with dried cherries and home-made cashew herb chevre. The root salad is another healthy choice.  A crowd pleaser is the pad thai, gluten free with rice noodles that can also be served nut free.

The unique feature is the raw juice bar complete with hard liquor. The number one selling drink is the Greenhouse made with gin, Drought #3  (apple, kale, lemon, celery & ginger), elderflower, orange and Cava.  A healthy cosmopolitan!

What are your healthy tips for starting off the New Year?



Favorites in the D

13 Mar



My buddy, Chuck Bennett (top, far left), hosted a fabulous soiree at the Roostertail in Detroit. The event marked the one-year anniversary of his blog the social D.

All the guests ate, drank and danced to all of Chuck’s favorites. Models wearing Neiman Marcus fashions (lower left) added to the ambiance.  Detroit’s finest food establishments catered the party — Forte Belanger, The London Chophouse, Bistro 82, Andiamo, Tre Monti, Addison Eatery  and yes,  Detroit’s own American Coney Island. Spirits were from Zim’s Vodka and Great Lakes Wine & Spirits. Proceeds from the auction items — a Shinola Watch and a Townsend getaway– benefited three charities. Danialle Karmanos Work it Out DKWIO, the Horatio Williams Foundation and the Rhonda Walker Foundation were the beneficiaries.

I had the opportunity to chat with some interesting people — Dr. Joel Kahn, one of my favorite Beaumont doctors (upper right in the photo with me) and Karen Buscemi (lower right), Rosemary Bannon, Marcy Hayes, Ina Levinson, Tom Anderson, Terry Olson.

To see some of the fascinating people at the event, check out D business. (I even made it in the party pics!)
