At Chiang Mai Ultimate Thai Restaurant, it's all about finessing four fundamental flavors: hot, sour, sweet, and salty. When in balance, these elements forge the cooking styles common to Thailand and Southeast Asia––and to Chiang Mai Ultimate Thai Restaurant. The restaurant has recently revamped its lengthy menu, which is populated with a slew of curry, fried rice, and seafood dishes. Long, faux-marble tabletops on wooden legs bare steaming housemade soups, as well as morsels of fresh lamb, duck, and scallops over stir-fried noodles. After sopping up the last of a traditional curry entree, patrons can recline in a cozy velvet booth to enjoy homemade banana dumplings or build a log cabin out of chopsticks to avoid ever having to leave.
With more than 30 years of mouthy experience, Dr. Wynne’s practice at Dimond Family Dental Center handles general-practice services and procedures. In addition to regular checkups and cleanings, the staff is versed in such smile-saving procedures as silver- and tooth-colored fillings, crowns, bridges, and relines. Dr. Wynne’s practice states that “Patients from 6 to 106 are all welcome!”, probably because at 107 years, teeth turn into marble.
Sona Vita Hair Studio’s serene and earthy spa setting serves as the stage for transformations. Clients can watch in oversize, framed mirrors as a master or junior stylist cuts, colors, and styles their hair. The salon also offers updos and one-hour deep-conditioning treatments, which leave hair silky and soft after a three-step process that includes a head massage, shampoo, and style.
Drs. Lauren Evans, Jacob Frank, and Kara Reynolds protect the power of sight at Wolf Eye Center. The trio of talented optometrists—who studied ocular disease during their residencies—cares for eyes with everything from standard eye exams to glaucoma treatments. In addition to caring for adult patients, the team of eye professionals also treats little ones, helping correct lazy eyes and outfitting budding athletes with sports goggles.
While the doctors detect disease and calibrate prescriptions, the center’s knowledgeable staff helps clients peruse a selection of frames from the likes of Gucci, Coach, and Vera Wang. Frames are filled with thin, high-index lenses or Transitions lenses, which shift from clear to tinted when exposed to sun or a pageant queen’s sequined evening gown.
