Love Potion #10 isn't a perfume, cocktail, or shade of semigloss paint—it's a tea. And it's a very special loose-leaf tea at that, hand-blended from a recipe created by Sunyatta Amen's grandmother. Sunyatta grew up helping out in her parents' herbal shop in Harlem and accompanied them on trips to foreign locales to buy their wares. So it is no surprise that she went on to open her own shop, SiTea, where she can share her passion for teas, spices, and all things aromatic and healing.
Sunyatta has made multiple appearances on the morning news, educating viewers about how to make the perfect cup of chai while touting the benefits of buying loose teas versus skimpy bagged teas. Her potent full-leaf blends can be brewed twice or more while still retaining their flavor and beneficial essences.
When it comes to footwear restoration, the experts at Cobbler’s Bench Shoe Repair don’t just go through the motions. Instead, they put in the extra effort to return each pair to a like-new condition, a quality instilled by the company’s founders, Charles and Sara Stern, in 1946. All repairs are completed within three days and use equal or better materials than the original manufacturer, which helps protect shoes from environmental damage and teasing from snobby loafers. Cobbler’s Bench also maintains an offsite plant with special equipment to carry out particularly complicated repairs.
Paintings by a local Ethiopian artist, servers clad in traditional Ethiopian dresses, and the signature spice blends of turmeric, fennel, and cardamom help patrons to immerse themselves in a traditional Ethiopian dining experience. Instead of silverware, diners use disks of injera, a spongy flatbread, to scoop up mouthfuls of the flavorful lamb, lentil, and fish dishes that emerge from the kitchen. Although the chefs keep their flavors close to home by making cottage cheese in-house and evaporating seawater in the ovens to make salt, they also seek out Ethiopian beers and wines for even more authentic flavors from the Horn of Africa.
