Nominated as the best boutique in Larchmont by MojoPages, Vieira Organics outfits environmentally conscious abodes with all-natural children’s clothing, home accessories, and haircare and bodycare products for all ages. Earth-friendly attire from 12 different clothing lines in sizes newborn through 6T—including 100% organic hand-knit hats ($29–$37)—ensures tykes look their best at carbon-footprint-bronzing ceremonies. A range of home accessories, such as organically produced kitchenware and decorative glass candleholders ($15–$60), dresses up dwellings, and handmade, double-strength soy candles ($14 for an 8-ounce; $18 for an 11-ounce) light the way to domestic and environmental tranquility. Jewelry made from copper- or gold-dipped leaves and pinecones provides a natural accent to any outfit and an elegant snack for mineral-deficient foragers. Vieira Organics also stocks 25 product lines of personal-care products, including the organic haircare and bodycare products Cindy Vieira created to pamper her own daughter Natalia, according to Westchester Magazine.
Though he's lent his talents to judge culinary events and collaborate on a book, The New American Chef, Spanish-born chef Mariano Aznar is at his best when he's in the kitchen. He draws from 30 years of culinary experience and skills honed at restaurants in France, Spain, and New York City to design modern menus, each based on his love for traditional Latin cooking. Aznar transforms old recipes into new ones, as evidenced by his small plates of Spanish cheese, chicken stew, and ceviche, as well as larger dishes such as seafood paella and chimichurri-seasoned skirt steak. Liquid Kitchen's dining room also reflects his colorful heritage: deep red lights cast their glow on exposed brick walls and dark wood accents, and blue ones illuminate a bar sided by rough-cut stone.
