Savor the Sweetness at Vanillamore

Savor the Sweetness at Vanillamore
By Michele Silver
This dessert kitchen in the south part of town has quietly been luring brunch goers
and dessert die-hards since it opened last fall. The vision of Chef Risa Magid Boyer,
whose passion for vanilla’s versatility inspired her to devote her restaurant to it,
Vanillamore has both sweet and savory dishes.
A warm and welcoming space, Vanillamore blends art with technology.​ There are
six walls serve as a gallery showing the work of different artists; visitors are treated
to this visual beauty as well as the gorgeous works of edible art on their plates. ​
Brunch choices include a daily quiche served with the most sublime arugula salad
dressed in a lemon vinaigrette, classic oatmeal with a vanilla twist, a divine French
toast bake served with poached pears, along with a scrumptious selection of sweet
and savory toasts such as silken ricotta topped with apricot jam and toasted
hazelnuts. There are separate lunch and dinner menus as well; the small plates are
meant to encourage guests to try several choices (and try to share!)
Then there are the desserts, which are like composed plates of sweet love.
“Charcuterie Boards” include choices such as espresso caramel and coffee hazelnut
mousse, “Tapas” offers a wonderfully fun and seasonal “kebabs” like a lemon- and
thyme-glazed doughnut with candied lemon zest and blackberry, and “Dessert
Flights” that highlight caramel, berry and chocolate; there’s even a gluten-free
option.

Vanillamore offers classes and special events as well. On June 2, there’s a Spring
Cheese Tasting and Pairing with Marie Fromage and sign up is available online,

Yarnia Draws Fiber Fans from the Tri-State Area

Yarnia Draws Fiber Fans from the Tri-State Area


By Michele Silver
In its yarn-store heyday, Montclair boasted five retail locations for knitters. Over
time, most of them closed, leaving fans of this cozy hobby to create the Montclair
Knitting Circle. Long-time knitters and friends Kathleen Vandervoort, Amanda
Turcotte and Jen Bonnell opened Yarnia a little more than six months ago to serve
the fiber community, which includes not only the surrounding towns of Bloomfield,
Verona, Cedar Grove, Nutley and Livingston but also as far away as Pennsylvania.
“People who love yarn stores will always make time to check out a good local one
when they get the chance!” enthused Kathleen.
Each owner bring a unique skill set to the knitting table. Kathleen is the on-site
manager and has a background in marketing and branding. Amanda hails from the
worlds of corporate finance and product development. Jen was a children’s book
editor and craft book author, and she’s one of the main instructors for knitting and
spinning classes. Kathleen said that Sheila Handlesman from Stix n Stitches and
Paige Sato from Modern Yarn were incredibly helpful in Yarnia’s development.
“We’ve all been in stores where the vibe wasn’t great, and we always want to make
sure that everyone feels welcome and at home — from the beginner who has never
picked up a skein before to the knitting designer who is looking for some
inspiration,” she said.

Yarnia carries brands such as Ancient Arts, Baah and Knitted Wit as well as local
indie dyers like Apple Tree Knits and MollyGirl Yarn and classics like Swans Island,
Jade Sapphire, Cascade, Mrs. Crosby, Manos, Madelinetosh; North Light Fibers from
Block Island, RI., is a new fave micro mill.
In addition to group and private classes, the store offers knitalongs, which is a group
of crafters make the same item showing their individuality through yarn choice and
other details. There are knit nights at least twice a month and a regular sit and knit
session on Sundays.  “We love the fact that we have customers of every age range,
men and women, knitters, crocheters, spinners, and weavers,” Kathleen said. “The
one thing all our customers do have in common is that they want to work with yarn
that feels good and that will make a finished object that they are happy with.”

JAlfreds Food Delivers The Farm To Your Table

JAlfreds Food Delivers The Farm To Your Family’s Table

By Michele Silver

Michele Silver is a partner at AlchemyWorks for digital content creation. https://www.alchemyworksnyc.com/copy-2-of-tj-bio

 

Healthy, quality and local food has always been at the heart of Jessica Alfreds’ career as
a café owner and personal chef. In 2016, she parlayed her passions into JAlfreds Food—a
delivery service for fresh and prepared meals—that started with 22 customers and has
exponentially grown into more than 1,000.
Social media and word-of- mouth has driven this former NYC line cook into a successful
business woman who has harnessed the bounty of nearby growers to help Montclair and
surrounding towns eat better. Part of her company’s mission is to bring awareness to the
power that individual families have in the global food cycle.
“After my daughter was born, I wanted to go back to work, but clearly restaurant hours
were not going to work for me. I needed to get creative about how I was going to still do
work I enjoyed, while keeping my daughter my top priority,” Alfreds explained. “I
wanted to help people plan out their weekly menus with the best meat/fish/produce
available in our region during that particular week as well as the instructions they need to
be successful preparing it.”
There’s a bigger picture for her as well: “I love the sense of community that has
developed. My farmers and growers ask lots of questions about my customers; what they
did or didn’t like, and my customers feel good about providing a direct source of income
to local farms.”
Alfreds’ loves classic comfort food such as roasted chicken, mashed potatoes and
homemade ravioli while many of her customers aim for a mix of healthy options and
choices for their (sometimes pickier) children. Nearly everyone, she said, enjoys her homemade bread and rolls.

Sweat & Strut Works Out On Walnut Street

Sweat & Strut Works Out On Walnut Street

 

By Michele Silver

 

After being in business for a little less than one year on Valley Road in Upper Montclair, the studio-to-street apparel shop Sweat & Strut has relocated to Walnut Street. It has the distinct honor of being the first retailer in this blossoming business section, with a host of fitness, dance and yoga studios in close proximity.

 

Owner, competitive athlete, insurance executive, mom of two, and 13-year Montclairian Melissa Sowa has brought her “passion for high-quality leggings and athleisure designed for every body and activity to women and girls” to the community. Although Sowe was overjoyed to be part of the Upper Montclair Business District, her new Walnut Street neighbors have been “amazing.”

 

In addition a variety of leggings, Sweat & Strut carries tanks, graphic tees, sweats, grip socks, headbands, totes, jewelry, candles, hair perfume, and other small giftables. Locally made brands include K-Deer, Emily Hsu, WITH, Koral, Sol & Selene, Equipt4u, Alala, Lazy Pants, and PrismSport.

 

“I love to be in the store to help you find the right fit and function as much as I can. I often suggest that women try a new brand and if they put that trust in me they will feel great. But for when I can’t, I’ve put together an amazing, team that share my passion,” she explained. “Our customers range from fitness enthusiasts to those who don’t work out but appreciate a legging designed to fit you perfectly, in all the right places, so you can run errands or enjoy a night out.” Sweat & Strut will be adding a men’s brand in March.

 

Sowa stands by her choice of brick and mortar for this type of clothing and doesn’t see e-commerce as a decent substitute: “I believe you should try leggings on to make sure you have the perfect fit so you look good and feel good—you can’t do that online. All brands are sized differently. We will fit you in the size and brand that works best for you.”

Designer Rachel Sweebe spent 20 years in the fashion business before discovering her love of wedding gowns. Over the next 10 years, she created custom designs and launched her own collection, which eventually led to her new retail space, Bridal Atelier Montclair, located in the heart of Upper Montclair. “Opening this boutique seemed like the natural next step in pursuing my love of all things bridal!” she enthused.

20171110_120323

Bridal Atelier Montclair carries a beautiful assortment of gowns, veils and headpieces from American and European designers such as Flora, Romona Keveza, Claire Pettibone, Amy Kuschel, Campodoro Bride and Sara Gabriel. The unique brands are a real draw for customers seeking something truly special for their big day. “Most of our designers are exclusive to us in New Jersey,” Sweebe said.

20171110_120256

The trends for spring/summer focus on classic/ clean silhouettes, deep “V” necklines, sheer details and gowns in crepe fabric. “Our bride is contemporary in her style, she wants modern with a twist paired without compromising impeccable fit and luxurious fabrics,” she explained.

The shop offers private one-on-one bridal and accessory appointments, complete alteration services and maximum flexibility for customizations on the gowns that we carry, according to Sweebe. “We take great care in creating a relaxed and personal experience for both our brides and their families.”

Nouvelle Turns One

Nouvelle Turns One

By Michele Silver

Upper Montclair women’s clothing boutique Nouvelle https://www.nouvelleboutiques.com/ celebrated its one-year anniversary last night with special discounts, an eff.y.bee https://www.effybee.com/ trunk show, treats from Sweet Home Montclair https://sweethomemontclair.com/ and Dolci D’Italia and DJ Prince Hakim http://www.djprincehakim.com/.

Owner Arlene Carrini, looked fabulous in a black ruffled long-sleeve top and pants from Dance and Marvel, one of the vendors she carries. Nouvelle was a concept that happened organically from her Montclair consignment shop One Savvy Design https://www.onesavvydesign.com/, she explained.  As Carrini noticed customers’ needs for items like cardigans or bralettes, for example, she would start buying them and stocking them in her store to sell along with the consigned merchandise. Then something unexpected happened: the new items sold exceedingly well. Opening a boutique to carry new apparel and accessories made perfect sense.

“We looked for a location in other towns, but I knew I wanted to develop my business in Upper Montclair,” Carrini said. “I knew I wanted to stay in the town where people knew me and knew my reputation for being on top of trends and having a great attention to detail. A lot of people said I was going to cannibalize my consignment business, but I didn’t think so.” She was completely right.

Nouvelle carries stylish, unique yet very wearable dresses and separates that are perfect for work, nights out or just running errands. The merchandise changes often, giving customers ongoing choices throughout the season. Carrini has discovered a great formula for sharing the old with new is that items sold on consignment at One Savvy Design can be used as credit at Nouvelle. Now that’s smart business.

Soccer Zone USA No. 4 Kicks Off Downtown

Soccer Zone USA No. 4 Kicks Off Downtown

by Michele Silver

Michele Silver has lived in Montclair for more than nine years and is a professional writer and editor.

Italian native Frank Giuliano Sr. had a long-term passion to help soccer grow in Northern New Jersey. He opened Universal Sporting Goods in 1976, which he eventually handed over to his son, Frank Giuliano, Jr. in 2008. Five years ago, Frank Jr. officially turned Universal Sporting Goods into the Soccer Zone—it now has four locations, the newest one on 58 Church St. (next to Starbucks).

With the tremendous popularity of rec and travel teams in town, soccer players of all ages now have a downtown destination for their needs. The store carries a deep selection of cleats, clothing and gear from major brands such as Nike, adidas, Puma, New Balance, Reuch, Kwik Goal, and Storelli.

“I lived in Montclair for five years and it was a dream of mine to have a retail shop on Church St.,” Frank, Jr. said. “With all of the different ethnic backgrounds in a historic town like Montclair, I felt that the town deserved a soccer stop that carried all of the top brands and carried a vast amount of not only equipment, but also a variety of different Club and National team jerseys from around the world.”

Sweet Soles Fits The Smallest Montclairians

 

By Michele Silver

When Little Shoebox decided to shutter its doors after 25 years, families with young children were terribly sad—and they really did not want to venture to the malls to get footwear. Thankfully, Sweet Soles has filled the void.

Owner and Montclair native Christina Papasso actually wound up enlisting the help of Little Shoebox owner Elaine Sinisi. Her shop sells many of the popular footwear, boots and slippers for sizes infant 4 (first walkers) through 4.5/5 for big kids and accessories that Sinisi carried. For dressier looks for little girls, there’s Naturino, Nina’s, Kenneth Cole and Steve Madden in addition to fun and funky sneakers from Vans and Tsukihoshi. Boys can choose from Saucony, plae, See Kai Run and Sperry. There’s a solid collection of fashion boots, including a new supplier, Lyard, as well as rain jackets and umbrellas.

Manager Gabby Lanflisi, who was waiting patiently on a little boy with his dad, has been in retail for many years in addition to having lots of experience with children; helping to raise her two younger siblings gave her a great foundation. “I really just love kids,” she said. Together, we watched the little boy, in his new kicks, leave the store as a happy customer.
