Un, deux, trois. Such is the simplicity of Café Monet’s menu, whose three-part, mix-and-match structure is the brainchild of Egyptian-born chef Wes Sawi. The child of a diplomat, Sawi spent his youth traveling the world before finding his passion in food. He studied at the New York Restaurant School and trained at notable kitchens in Paris and Lyon, all of which contribute to the global touches on his predominantly French creations.

On the dinner menu, plates under the “un” and “deux” sections are served in appetizer-sized portions, while the “trois” offerings constitute full entrees. To start, a Moroccan tuile adorns mounds of crabmeat a la mango, and duck confit comes paired with wild-mushroom strudel, a creation that the New York Times hailed as “a small masterpiece of a dish.” Merlot-braised beef short ribs and an onion ring sit atop a mint-fava-bean-potato puree, and mint essence flavors rack of lamb and a Provençal–style vegetable tian. In addition to the egg dishes, sandwiches, and salads that populate the lunch menu, the cafe runs a patisserie that serves baked goods and gourmet coffee throughout the morning and afternoon.

Large canvases sporting colorful still-life paintings of fruit adorn Café Monet’s warm, neutral-colored walls, which reach down to a bare wooden floor in the cozy, 50-seat dining room. Granite tabletops separate chairs from leather banquettes, where diners sit and uncork wine they brought from home. Outside, red umbrellas shield tables as guests sip coffee and take advantage of complimentary WiFi.

Amid a friendly Old-World market atmosphere, the butchers of Pulaski Meat Products smoke, slice, and link an array of Eastern European meats onsite. Hoops of Kraiana kielbasa ($4.19/lb.) spin on dinner tables or the turntables of experimental DJs, and black forest ham ($6.29/lb.) fills sandwiches with its savory, salty flavor. Frankfurters ($4.79/lb.) await the grill or frying pan, and baby back ribs ($6.59/lb.) come infused with the taste of the smokehouse. Watched over by an emblem of Poland's crowned eagle, the shop's knowledgeable employees hand out samples and help customers understand the subtle differences between Ukrainian and Hungarian kielbasa and why bologna shouldn’t be used as a pillow.

Before Dr. Alexander Ovchinsky began working with clients at Plastic Surgery of Short Hills, he spent years building on his knowledge in the field of aesthetic medicine. He received double board certification and completed a fellowship that trained him exclusively in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. In his role as assistant professor at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, he now passes on this wisdom when not working in his own clinic.

At Plastic Surgery of Short Hills, he directs staff members as they help him to work toward individuals’ beauty goals through reconstructive and cosmetic surgery as well as injectable treatments. Custom programs include facials, microdermabrasion, and peels, and laser light is used to remove unwanted hair, improve skin tone, and treat spider veins.
