for Health” to benefit the Breast Cancer Alliance
Succulent carpaccio of yellow fin
tuna. Savory striped bass. Grilled calamari with shaved fennel
and vegetables. Organic chicken with string bean salad. Are
you hungry yet?
Those are just some of the tasty treats awaiting you during
December and January’s special “Taste for Health”
initiative at Ramze Zakka restaurants: Terra and Mediterraneo
in Greenwich, Acqua in Westport, Solé in New Canaan
and Aurora in Rye.
The Breast Cancer Alliance, along with Ramze Zakka Restaurant
Group Executive Chef Albert DeAngelis; Marco Petrini, President
of specialty olive oil importer/distributor Monini North America;
and Dr. Barry Boyd, Director of the Integrated Medicine program
at Greenwich Hospital, is sponsoring a menu promotion to highlight
the benefits of certain ingredients in preventing and treating
Tables at these restaurants will feature tent cards promoting
Mediterranean-style menu items that include “cancer-healthy”
ingredients. The health benefits of a Mediterranean diet,
which tends to be high in Omega 3 fats found in fish, extra-virgin
olive oil and vegetables, have been widely noted by doctors
We want you to focus on healthy eating as a proven way to
prevent cancer and other diseases. By choosing foods with
ingredients rich in anti-oxidants, high in protein, low in
saturated fat, high in fiber, and not overly processed, you'll
be eating a diet that has been proven beneficial in assisting
cancer prevention and treatment. And it’s delicious!
Be sure to eat at one of these restaurants on the weekend
of January 7th - 9th, when a donation will be made to the
Breast Cancer Alliance for every meal served.
