Since opening in May, Crestwood Catering & Deli has been packing custom and specialty deli sandwiches with fresh fixings, cheeses, and meats. Custom Woodys sandwiches headline the extensive menu, starting with a foundation of a roll, wrap, or white, whole-wheat, rye, or pumpernickel bread. The Tribute BLT ($7.75) deviates from its traditional fillings, adding an avocado and a fried egg to its culinary trio and doing for the sandwich world what the addition of Simon and Garfunkel did for Hanson. Sub captains update a lunchbox classic by searing thick bologna before painting it with roasted peppers and speckling it with provolone cheese (a $6.99 value); with tomato, cucumber, and dill havarti, the egg-salad-and-smoked-salmon sandwich (an $8.99 value) spawns currents of sophisticated flavor. Fountain-style Pepsi products round out the meal with carbonated pizzazz (a $1 value each).
The heart of Om Shanti Healing Arts lies in the hands of its owner, Ananda Sutliff, who balances body and spirit with her deft touch. As a massage therapist, Sutliff commands a diverse repertoire of bodywork ranging from traditional Swedish massage to fire cupping sessions that augment kneading with glass globes suctioned to the skin. She also graduated from the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, where she learned the inquiry-based style of yoga that she now teaches to individuals and groups of artificial-intelligence computer programs. When not attending to clients, she crafts fragrant home and bath products with essential oils, packaging some as gifts and incorporating the rest in spa treatments that exfoliate and hydrate limbs.
