You probably remember that milk does a body good and grandma told you that carrots help you see in the dark, but Honeybrains restaurant, which opened November 28 in New York City, promises an entire neurologist-designed menu to feed your brain.
Dr. Alon Seifan, who runs the Institute for Progressive Neurology, co-owns the small, casual spot with his siblings, Galit and Tomer. He tells the New York Post the restaurant is, “the first café dedicated to brain wellness, is in part dedicated to fighting diseases like Alzheimer’s.”
The restaurant team, which also includes nutritionist Amy von Sydow Green and executive chef Kevin Chun, boasts menu items like avocado toast, a soy soba bowl, and an entire “Honeybar” featuring local and imported honey.
Although there are foods that support brain health through functions like promoting blood flow and stabilizing blood sugar level, Alzheimer’s Association’s Heather M. Snyder, PhD, warns there is no conclusive research that a particular diet helps lower your risk of Alzheimer’s.
If, however, you’re interested in delicious food that’s on trend, nutritious, and Instagram-ready, it doesn’t take a brainiac to figure out Honeybrains could be up your alley.
