Honor Thy Mom and Pop

Honor Thy Mom and Pop

Gabriele Stabile for The New York Times

The design and menu are low key at James, in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn.

Health experts, reports Tara Parker-Pope, are “are seeing a shift toward ‘positive eating,’ ” which includes a preference for simple, natural ingredients over complicated processed stuff. That’s what Frank Bruni likes about James, a husband-and-wife-run restaurant in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, where the herbs come from the couple’s rooftop garden and the menu runs to roast chicken. “A mom-and-pop operation for the Alice Waters era,” he writes, it’s “an example of how quietly sophisticated the food at restaurants fashioned as affordable neighborhood bistros has become.” Even if it’s not your neighborhood, it’s worth the trip.

Instead of Eating to Diet, They’re Eating to Enjoy,” by Tara Parker-Pope

Do Your Own Dance Marathon

Hurry: there are still a few seats available at the Fall for Dance Festival, which Roslyn Sulcas calls “the best cultural deal in the city.” Over 10 days, 28 dance companies will perform multiple programs, and tickets are only $10 a show. Tonight’s opening program features Shen Wei Dance Arts (run by the choreographer of the Olympics opening ceremony), a Thai dance troupe making its New York debut, and the local favorite Larry Keigwin . “There is something for everyone here,” she says. So go.

Not Necessarily Easy Listening

“The Mars Volta is a progressive-rock whirlwind, constructing maniacally complex music and performing it with a mixture of rigorous virtuosity, psychedelic euphoria and punk intensity.” That’s what Jon Pareles wrote in his review of their last big show here; tonight this musical maelstrom hits the Hammerstein Ballroom in support of their bluesy new album, “The Bedlam in Goliath.”

Presidential Election: The Funny Version

Think you’ve heard (or recycled) every Sarah Palin joke out there? (Moose meat… rim shot!) Steal some new material tonight, when writers from VH1’s Best Week Ever and The Onion do their own schtick at the UCB. Also appearing onstage: Judah Friedlander of “30 Rock.” (Insert hat gag here.)


Last Chance

After several years as a high-fashion jewelry designer with a successful shop-cum-gallery in Greenpoint, Lisa Levine has decided to hang up her soldering iron. Tonight she gives a goodbye party and sale, where her dangly feather earrings, chain necklaces and coin bracelets will be up to 75 percent off.
