Nourishing both mind and body 


Once you drag yourself away from hours of scanning covers, looking for those obscure German Impressionist videos, stumble over to the food side of Stardust Video & Coffee (1842 E. Winter Park Road, Orlando; 407-623-3393) to fulfill other, less cerebral appetites.

Extra points to anyone who gets all the film/music/literary references on the clever menu. The easy ones: a "Rob Reiner" ($6) is, of course, a meat loaf sandwich, and "For Esme with Love and Squalor" ($6) is a J.D. Salinger short story, represented here by a bowl of sushi rice and tofu. (Esme could have been a vegetarian -- J.D. didn't say). But the vegetarian chili "Viva's Last Blues" ($7) refers to what record? Nachos and black beans called "Three Colors Trilogy" ($6.50) are an homage to whose films? And why is a lemon-roasted chicken sandwich a "Crispin Glover" ($6)? These are mysteries worthy of Hitchcock.
