Their website is not quite launched thepark112.com but things are looking ambitious for The Park 112 the last couple of days after taking this new photo of their interior.  We haven’t posted much about this “coming soon” business on FDB/8th Ave but we have been following the postings of our fellow bloggers and the media.  According to Harlem Bespoke and others, The Park 112 was originally set to open in Spring of 2013.  As this photo (above) shows the paper is now removed from the windows and finishing touches are looking more advanced.  We will continue to monitor their progress and keep you posted on opening dates as soon as we find out more.  With neighbors like Zoma, 67 Orange Street & The 5 and Diamond this new Champagne Bar & Restaurant will be in great company on Harlem Restaurant Row.

Roast Chicken with Apricot Sauce

When my friend asked me to meet him at the 5 and Diamond Restaurant on Frederick Douglass Blvd. in Harlem, I just assumed it would be a chance to catch up over a nice meal.  As I entered the restaurant, I suddenly realized that there was a special event occurring but I was completely unaware of the contents.  In one of those “Now what am I going to do?” moments, it became apparent that leaving would be awkward but staying might mean enduring a lecture type evening after a long day of work.  To my surprise and delight, the subject matter happened to be of great interest to me.

Lyn-Genet Recitas, Executive Director of Nutrition, of The Lyn-Genet Plan, presented an interesting and informative approach to weight loss, health, and reversing the aging process. There were numerous concepts and examples given during the presentation but what stood out in my mind was the idea that food often promoted as being “healthy” among the general population could, in fact, be a “reactive food” thus inducing an inflammatory response in others.  This reaction has an overall effect on your health.

Mixed Salad Greens

Ms. Recitas’ approach was not an all-encompassing diet plan marketed for the masses but rather an individualized assessment to identify acceptable food and eliminate reactive food specific to each person’s needs.  Her ideas may be of interest to those people who have attempted to address health issues solely through radical diets and/or medication—each having its own side effects.

Vegetable Timbale

The bonus in the evening was a lovely three-course meal consisting of a Carrot Soup Shooter, Mixed Salad Greens, Vegetable Timbale, Roast Chicken, Lamb Shepherd’s Pie, or Red Snapper, and a Berries, Chocolate, and Whipped Cream dessert.  All items were prepared by the 5 and Diamond Restaurant utilizing a variety of herbs and spices and minimizing the use of sodium. Owners of the 5 and Diamond Restaurant plan to open The Harlem Pearl, located on 112th St. and Frederick Douglass Blvd. Followers of the Lyn-Genet Plan will be able to purchase her 4-Day Detox meals on a “to go” basis.

I have not had a personal experience with Ms. Recitas’ Plan but feel that her program warrants further investigation.  For a more in-depth explanation, go to http://lyngenet.com/the-plan/, to assist in formulating your own opinion.
