Lunch Lady

Want to ensure a full night’s rest?

Try a rehearsal lunch. Mix-and-match elements, like this spread by caterer Ayda Robana of Om Sweet Mama, are ideal: copious platters of prosciutto, bresaola and pâté; cheeses, fruits, nuts and accoutrements like fleur de sel and butter. The S.B. chef recently returned from her parents’ native Tunisia and has added dishes such as shakshouka and local octopus in a lemony salad with fennel, radicchio and lots of olive oil. omsweetmama.com.
