Ludlow Global Fusion

Sake cups clink together as diners toast over the artful plates Chef Tokijiero Yamada has created, drawing on inspiration from his travels to Europe, South America, and the United States. Like many a child actor, Chef Yamada left his home at 17 years old to make his own way in the world, and along the way, he was able to refine his palate by tasting the various dishes of places such as Japan, Italy, France, and Chile. Now, each plate at Ludlow Global Fusion belies these influences, as evidenced by dishes such as the hearty beef stew or charcoal-grilled pork spareribs infused with the flavors of miso and wasabi.

The punch card is valid for drinks off the organic-juice menu, which includes beverages such as the Dr. Oz with green apple, kale, and ginger; the Twister with carrot, green apple, and lime; and the Morning Glory with carrot, beet, oranges, and lemon.

Deja Vu

After losing a sizeable amount of weight with his kitchen-made juices, Sal had the idea to open a café coupling his love of French culture with his new appreciation for the role of food in health. With the help of his son, he opened Deja Vu, where painted ivy sneaks around the edges of menus on walls the color of rich buttercream. On the menu, Sal’s original French inspiration shines through in crepes, and fruit and veggie smoothies made from organic ingredients stay true to his nutritional vision.

Low in sugar and ideal for cleansing, the drinks can also be amplified with multiple types of protein. Blenders purr, full of smoothies and juices made with kale, green apples, ginger, oranges, and even hints of parsley, all delivered fresh daily. Crepes are also a Deja Vu specialty, whether filled with bananas and chocolate-hazelnut spread, or ham, veggies, or warm chicken and pesto. Conversation about the weather or the weatherman’s constant weeping drift over warm corned-beef sandwiches, and shoots of steam blossom from fresh-brewed organic coffee.

On the last day of camp, parents can attend a show to see what their children have learned.

JM Performance Horse

JM Performance Horse’s instructor, Justin Mott, grew up in the company of horses at his family’s ranch, first taking up reins at the age of 3. About eight years later, Mott handled his first horse in training. This experience prompted Mott to sharpen his understanding of natural horsemanship and study the works of Tom Dorrance, who emphasized the feel of the horse and its interplay with the handler. Today, Mott works upon the verdant hills and pastures of Sheridan Equestrian Center, training both horses and humans. In classes designed for students of all skill levels, the seasoned rider strengthens connections between man and beast while teaching posture, commands, and proper U-turn technique.

$65 for One Case of 12 Italian Wines from Italian Wine Hub ($195 Value)

$65 for a Case of 12 Italian Wines ($195 Value)

Ten bottles of red and two of white wine include boutique Italian wines—made from native grape varieties such as sangiovese and nebbiolo—as well as merlot, cabernet sauvignon, and other international classics.

Italian Wine Hub

Loris Scagliarini’s interests lie at an unusual intersection between artistry and technicality. An early job at a Modenese winery eschewed the artisanal aspects of wine making, leaving Loris with the task of running their electronic grape-management system. Although moves and later a career as a photographer took him away from Italy, his heart stayed with the world of wine. Eventually, this gentle tug became an undeniable pull, leading Loris to found Italian Wine Hub, an online presence for his photography, writing, and—above all—love for Italian wines. As a member of the WineCountry registry, Italian Wine Hub is a part of an online community dedicated to promoting Italian wine producers, distributors, and members of the Italian wine world. Loris' travels throughout his Italian homeland have informed his inventory, which is imported directly from small Italian wineries, including 54 prize-winning varieties that can be shipped nearly anywhere in the United States, or gazed at longingly from the other side of a computer screen anywhere in the world.

$10 for $20 Worth of Italian Cuisine for Brunch or Lunch
