Platter, Pot, Plate

Ready for a break from the usual restaurant experience? Want something that gets you involved in much more than just eating? Try The Melting Pot in Farmingdale.

The big clue that this is something very different is the table setting, which puts a sharp utensil in front of you. Next comes the food. It arrives uncooked, in tiny morsels.

Yes, it’s time for fondue. And, says Manager Christina Costanzo, it’s the ambience and unique experience that keep people coming back.

 

So You Want To Be A Lighthouse Keeper?

Find the romance—and reality—

of this solitary life in local waters

It may seem a little early to start making summer reservations, but when you have 163-year-old lighthouse, you tend to take the long view.

Four years ago, a non-profit group that my girlfriend/lawyer Linell Lukesh and I formed took title to Execution Rocks Lighthouse, which sits in Long Island Sound, about 1,400 feet offshore and a 20-minute boat ride from the Port Washington Town Dock.

 

Realtors To The Rescue

RE/MAX relief fund provides more than

$20,000 in aid to its employees

When Hurricane Sandy struck, RE/MAX realtor Andrew Louca was in his South Merrick home with his wife and 24-year-old daughter. As unattended boats drifted by and his brand-new floating dock washed up on his front lawn, a foot of water poured into the basement of the split-level home. While they didn’t lose their home and got power back after 15 days, the Louca family sustained far more than the $15,000 in damage that their insurance company recognized. And with reimbursements still not received by press time, this South Shore family would have been in far worse straits were it not for the largesse of RE/MAX of New York. Louca’s employer recently presented checks for more than $22,000 to brokers and agents affected by Hurricane Sandy at the company’s Garden City office. The speed with which RE/MAX distributed this money to its employees was not lost on the Merrick realtor.

“The hurricane hit us on Oct. 29, and we got [the money] in December, which is pretty quick,” Louca said. “It was very quick because I think they wanted us to have something for the holidays, which was nice of them.”

Helping students in need

When Superstorm Sandy struck the area, 11-year-old Courtney Murdaugh, a student at Westbury Middle School, felt she had to do “something.”

“I wanted to help the people affected by Sandy and help them feel better and let them know that people want to help them and make sure they’re safe,” she said.

 

Fear No Scale

Dr. Bo says five phases and four elements

are the key to losing weight and keeping it off

Fat. It’s The Enemy, especially this time of year, amid resolutions, self-improvement plans and the inability to see your feet. Yet despite our national obsession with dieting, The Enemy is winning. According to the Centers for Disease Control, a third of American adults are overweight and another third are obese. Why are most diets doomed to failure? For Isaac Schulman, the director of Dr. Bo’s Diet Center in Hewlett, the reason is pretty straightforward.

“The problem is that all [of the usual diet programs] address some short-term weight loss, which is just a symptom,” says Schulman. “It doesn’t address the core issue: How did the person get overweight?”
