events brought more euphoria to Brooklynites than the opening
of the Fairway Market in Red Hook. Besides this culinary emporium’s
carefully selected goods, the store now offers another perk:
a walk and dinner with its newly hired "lifestyle facilitator."
The woman to wear the title is Margo Mittler (pictured), a registered
dietician and family nutrition specialist. On Monday, Mittler,
who refers to herself as "anti-resolution and anti-diet,"
will lead the "Nutritional Walking Tour and Dinner."
Participants will stroll the aisles discussing the nutritional
value of "organic foods, conventionally grown produce and
products, all kinds of meats, farmed fish versus wild fish and
more," she promises.
The walk will conclude with a dinner at Fairway’s lovely waterside
"I’m here," says Mittler, "because Fairway wants
customers to know as much as we do about food, so they can make
well-informed, smart decisions about their health and well being."
In addition to diet suggestions, Mittler plans to share "the
cold, hard facts about food labeling, too, because Fairway is
committed to telling customers the truth, including the most
stupid, misleading, unethical - down-right immoral at times -
shenanigans going on inside the USDA, FDA and the food industry
The tour, which runs from 7 pm to 8:30 pm on July 17, can accommodate
25 attendees who will receive a 10 percent discount coupon redeemable
