One of the best things about owning a restaurant in Washington DC is certainly the people you meet. You establish relationships, even friendships solely based on the interactions around their dining table. For years Sherri and Jim Giordano were loyal and frequent customers. We’d share stories about Italy and its food and he’d talk about his stints in Germany. (I later learned he was an esteemed Fulbright Professor of Neurosciences and Neuroethics in Munich and Distinguished Visiting Professor of Brain Science, Health Promotions and Ethics in Coburg, Germany!)

It wasn’t until fairly recently, probably while sharing some limoncello at the bar, that I learned the scope of this work both at Georgetown University Medical Center and abroad. This humble man was one of the world’s leading experts in the fields of brain science and neuroethics! Next thing you know, I was asking him to speak at one of our Need To Know Dinners and we were talking about brain healthy foods we should include on the menu.

Please join renowned neuroscientist, Professor James Giordano for an intimate exchange over dinner to learn how emerging developments in brain research are seemingly at the border of science fact and science fiction. Dr. Giordano will engage his dynamic style of “edutainment” to explain how researchers are looking to brain science and its tools to both treat neurological and psychiatric diseases and augment our thought, feelings and behaviors.

To compliment this compelling presentation, I have put together a menu featuring healthy “brain foods” that, as Dr. Giordano will explain, can directly affect brain function.
