Cholesterol does not cause heart disease in the elderly and trying to reduce it with drugs like statins is a waste of time, an international group of experts has claimed.

A review of research involving nearly 70,000 people found there was no link between what has traditionally been considered “bad” cholesterol and the premature deaths of over 60-year-olds from cardiovascular disease.

Published in the BMJ Open journal, the new study found that 92 percent of people with a high cholesterol level lived longer.

Its Steak and Eggs for Brunch this Fall at memoire of Ridgewood


Ridgewood Restaurant mémoire introduces Fall 2015 Brunch Menu

mémoire, a fine dining restaurant offering seasonal, American eclectic cuisine in a casual NYC-style atmosphere, announced its Fall 2015 brunch menu.

Ridgewood Nj, Mémoire Owner and Executive Chef, Tom Finnelli said, “This is the first significant change in our brunch menu since we began offering brunch in January. Besides adding seasonal components to the dishes, we added more lunch items and elevated the existing breakfast items. For example, our LOBSTER EGGS BENEDICT is now served with a celery root & potato cake (in place of the original jalapeño biscuit) and a cognac sabayon (in place of a traditional hollandaise). Our “STEAK” & EGGS are served with crescent farms long island duck breast with a pumpkin celery root hash, sunny-side up egg, naval orange confit and a roasted plum sauce. It’s truly a great brunch menu and I’m excited to introduce it on Sunday.”

About the Menu: Many of mémoire’s dishes are interpretations of classics, such as their LOBSTER EGGS BENEDICT and “STEAK” & EGGS. Other dishes, such as ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS, AUTUMN HARVEST SALAD and CINDERELLA PUMPKIN FRENCH TOAST, are what you might call, fall on a plate. Traditional breakfast dishes are offered, such as omelets and pancakes, but in a more refined way. There is even a children’s menu offering eggs, pancakes, french toast, pizza, pasta and chicken.

At mémoire, the answer is always “yes”!
