Faccia Luna Pizzeria is the kind of a place where you're just as likely to spot cozy couples splitting pasta dishes à la Lady and the Tramp as groups of friends clicking wine glasses over shared pizzas. The pies at this trio of urban trattorias bake in wood- or gas-fired ovens manned by chefs who have earned their whites at the Culinary Institute of America. Across three locations in Virginia and Pennsylvania, the kitchen crew also prepares casual Italian eats such as salads and grinder sandwiches served in an upscale bistro atmosphere.

Growing up, Chakra Café’s owner Monisha lived two different lives. At school, she was known by her given name and spent lunch hours twirling spaghetti on a fork. But at home, Monisha’s Bengali parents only referred to her by her nickname, Hashi–or laughter–and mealtimes meant scooping up lamb curry with a piece of luchi. The duality of Monisha’s two worlds–and the food she was exposed to–left a lasting impression and is the driving force behind the Café’s menu.

Inside Chakra Café’s kitchen, chefs marry Indian flavors with culinary traditions from around the world, using recipes adapted from Monisha’s mother, according to a Patch.com article. Traditional Bengali dishes such as begun bhartha–roasted eggplant flavored with green mango–are served solo or stuffed inside quesadillas with smoked fontina cheese, roasted pine nuts, and raitha yogurt sauce. Other Indian staples are also Americanized, from the tandoori chicken that tops flatbread pizzas to spaghetti paired with lamb meatballs and a whisper of ghee. Each item on the menu is clearly marked as halal, vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free, making it easy to decipher the dishes without meat and the ones that require each bite to be chewed 32 times.

Carpet cleaning is in David's blood. His father started the business when David was just a kid. Now he's at the helm, carrying on the family business. David learned a lot from his dad while growing up, including the ins and outs of removing sticky grime from carpets and the importance of customer satisfaction. He also keeps in step with the latest innovations. Using the Prochem Legend truck-mounted system to steam clean carpets, he restores floor coverings to like-new status. Ensuring optimal results, jobs are executed only by IICRC-certified techs. The importance of family is paramount, too, so David only uses solutions that are safe for children and pets. With the same due diligence and dedication they bring to carpet cleaning, techs also steam clean upholstery, employing a variety of cleaning processes to suit all types of fabrics.
