A native of East Rockaway, New York and a magna cum laude graduate from Boston University, attorney Marc Rovner serves as general counsel and director of business development for BETA Abstract LLC. In his free time, Marc Rovner enjoys traveling, and claims Barcelona as his favorite city.

Food and meals play an important role in Barcelona social life. As a result, the city offers delicious, enticing cuisine to visitors. To eat like a native, start with a light continental breakfast, usually found in bars. Most residents drink café con leche or a cortado as well as a croissant or other breakfast roll.

Lunch is the most important meal of the day and tends to include three to four courses, beginning with soup or salad, followed by a meat dish, and topped off with a light dessert of fruit, yogurt, or crema catalana. Lunch is always served with bread and wine and between the hours of 1:30 to 4. Finally, dinner tends to be lighter fare, with many indulging in tapas. One famous snack is pa amb tomaquet, bread rubbed with olive oil and tomato and served with cheese and cold cuts. Most Catalonians eat around 10 at night but restaurants are opened earlier.

Be warned: many restaurants are closed on Sundays and Mondays. Also, visitors looking to get authentic cuisine should avoid places in La Rambla.

East Rockaway, New York-based attorney Marc Rovner serves as general counsel and director of business development for Beta Abstract, LLC, covering New York, New Jersey, and Florida. Marc Rovner is also a devoted generational fan of the New York Rangers National Hockey League team. The East Rockaway resident remembers seeing his first game as a young child in 1970, sitting by his father’s side as goaltender Ed Giacomin took the ice.

In March 1989, the Rangers retired the legendary player’s number, 1. He became only the second player in the team’s history to be so honored.

Fans continue to love recounting anecdotes and statistics about Giacomin, who played for the team for more than 10 seasons, from 1965-1975.

The Ontario-born Giacomin appeared in 539 matches in his Rangers career. His stats include 49 shutouts and a goals against average of 2.73. When he left the Rangers in 1975, he was in first place overall for career wins with the team, had played in six NHL All-Star matches, and had racked up several single-season records.

Fans love to remember that some of the most astonishing upset wins in league playoff history – including against Boston in 1973 and Montreal in 1972 and 1974 – came about for the Rangers in large part thanks to Giacomin’s skills.

East Rockaway, New York, resident, Marc Rovner is an attorney who possesses over 30 years of experience. He has earned multiple accolades in recognition of his service to the community, including the Children’s Rights Council Man of the Year Award and the Five Towns Community Chest Award. An avid sports fan, Marc Rovner is also a season ticket holder for the New York Rangers. In April 2018, he was profiled by the Official Madison Square Garden (MSG) Blog.

His memory of his first Rangers game is crystal clear in his mind. It was February 8, 1970, and the Rangers defeated the Los Angeles Kings 5-1. Donnie Marshall scored the first goal of the game, while Eddie Giacomin, who was his father’s all-time favorite, was in goal for New York. His father became a season ticket holder that season with a pair of seats in section 429. Rovner is now a longtime season ticket holder himself.

The father of four regularly takes his children to sit with him in section 113, which he considers his own small community of passionate Rangers fans. Over the years, his family has become close with the Morellis, who sit nearby and have three daughters. Their relationship extends beyond MSG, as their children have grown up together, and they often join each other for road trips. Despite having lost most of his Rangers memorabilia in Hurricane Sandy, he still maintains a collection of 61 pucks signed by current and former Rangers players.

Marc Rovner is an accomplished attorney, who has received the Client Champion Silver Distinction from Martindale-Hubbell as well as the Client Distinction Award from Lawyers.com and Martindale.com. His responsibilities include the role of senior staff attorney at BETA Abstract, LLC. An Avid New York Giants fan, Marc Rovner loves traveling outside his hometown of East Rockaway and enjoys seafood and sushi.

A Japanese dish, sushi consists of cold rice to which vinegar has been added and that is garnished with seafood, vegetables, or other ingredients. As rice is the central component of sushi, proper preparation is essential. It should be fluffy but firm. Moreover, the right variety of rice should be used to achieve the proper texture.

Traditionally, a Japanese short-grain white rice has been the ideal choice for sushi. Varieties of this kind include Uruchimai, a sticky rice that is ideal for chopsticks, and Mochigome, whose high gluten content gives it a chewy texture. Developed in 1948, Calrose rice is grown in California and is used to cook Japanese meals in North America. However, strictly speaking, it is not a Japanese rice. Calrose includes the Kokuho Rose and Nishiki varieties, which are known for their good flavor and texture.

With a juris doctor from Boston University, attorney Marc Rovner resides in East Rockaway, New York, and manages business development for BETA Abstract LLC and its five offices in New York, New Jersey, and Florida. Beyond his responsibilities as an attorney, Marc Rovner is a passionate fan of Major League Baseball’s (MLB) New York Mets.

The New York Mets traded Jay Bruce to the Cleveland Indians in August 2017, but the team decided to bring back the veteran outfielder by signing him to a three-year, $39 million contract on January 11, 2018. Bruce first joined the Mets in August 2016 after spending the first nine seasons of his career with the Cincinnati Reds. He hit 37 home runs, drove in 94 runs, and recorded a .245 batting average in 153 games with New York. The Indians won 42 of 51 games after acquiring Bruce, who hit seven home runs and drove in 26 runs.

Although he has predominantly played right field throughout his career, the 30 year old is expected to spend some time at first base for the Mets as the team allows Dominic Smith to establish himself as an everyday player in the outfield. A first-round pick in the 2005 MLB Amateur Draft, Bruce is a three-time MLB All-Star who has 277 home runs and a .249 batting average in 1,416 career games.
