From his small village in central Greece, Tom Goulas brought a piece of his heritage across the pond to share: the cuisine. In 1975 he first founded Honey Tree Grille with the intent of sharing the rich, flavorful food of his native country. Since then, his business has grown three-fold, but Goulas aims to maintain the old-school attention to both the dishes the kitchen sends out and the service. These days, the menu can be found across seven different locations. There, diners will find a handful of familiar American classics alongside Greek staples such as fresh-sliced gyro sandwiches, layered mousaka, and golden, flaky spanikopita.
Amid her self-named salon’s buttery-yellow walls, Quenlyn Watkins leads a staff savvy in hair, spa, and skincare services. Their specialties include:
Though diminutive in size, Essentials of Eton Street Nail Studio boasts ample warmth and charm. Upon entering the cherry-red interior, patrons can hang up their jackets on a curled, silver coat rack and then settle into a velvety cushioned chair with a magazine. At manicure stations, clients can redirect their attention to a wall-mounted TV as talented techs groom and polish their natural nails or apply acrylics or adamantium claws. Foot worries dissolve away into a bubbling pedicure tub as torso muscles enjoy extra pampering in the salon’s leather pedi-throne, which inexplicably knows how to administer shiatsu-massage services.
Rosebudll is a little hidden gem in Birmingham. It is decorated like a victorian cottage, specializing in manicures, pedicures,waxing and facials. Its a place you can come to and leave the outside world behind get pampered and feel like your in someones living room, hanging out and talking to friends.
Maalouf doles out an array of hair, makeup, and nail services in a sleek and modern salon. Expert stylists wrangle mangy-mannered manes with haircuts ($35–$60+), color treatments ($55+), or professional styling ($40–$60+). A makeup application ($85) can help clueless cuties get red carpet-ready, and a digit-decorating manicure ($22), pedicure ($62), and flutter-enhancing false-eyelash application ($28) will incite triple takes from friends, passersby, and envious hummingbirds.
