The earthy architects of Great Lakes Landscape Design have dreamed up, installed, and maintained arboreal havens for more than 20 years. The team of landscape experts, masons, and horticultural specialists designs flourishing gardens with custom hardscapes. such as natural stone pathways or quilted patios. Their outdoor kitchens facilitate summer barbecues with grills, cabinets, and sinks, and outdoor fireplaces thaw toes on crisp autumn evenings and keep feral snowmen at bay on cold winter nights. In addition to lavishing lawns with ponds and wooden fences, the Great Lakes professionals also maintain them with deft garden-maintenance services.
Every day, Breadsmith kneads and breeds made-from-scratch breads, honoring the practices of centuries-old French bakers. The delectable dough sculptures receive the royal treatment, with all delicate yeast bubbles bursting inside of a 6-ton stone-hearth oven. The oven's sweltering heat creates a cushy crust for American-style breads. In the presence of lightning-quick steam injections, European-style breads take on a crisp, crumb-dressed outer core. Daily bread offerings vary from baguettes to sourdoughs to specialty loaves. Use today's Groupon to fill up the family with lusciously leavened loaves fresh from the oven—or wait for them to go stale and then wield them as harpoons during the next potato-soup hunt.
Amid her self-named salon’s buttery-yellow walls, Quenlyn Watkins leads a staff savvy in hair, spa, and skincare services. Their specialties include:
Wisconsin-born Dr. David Janssen began practicing medicine in the Fox Valley over twenty years ago. Since then, he’s dedicated more than two decades to helping his patients look and feel their best with innovative cosmetic and reconstructive surgery techniques. Together with fellow board-certified surgeon Dr. William Doubek and Dr. Marc Serret, Dr. Janssen creates custom treatment plans based on each patient’s needs and desires. In fact, patient input is an integral part of the process, whether the doctors are shrinking silhouettes with non-invasive CoolSculpting laser liposuction, or identifying and fighting the underlying causes of migraine headaches. They treat veins large and small with waves of thermal energy and localized laser beams, while Botox and Dysport touch-ups fight sagging skin and fine lines.
Like the palace of a Venetian doge, or the garage of an eccentric billionaire, the Renaissance Center is built in the image of a Renaissance-era Italian villa. Sporting a picturesque colonnade, peaked clay-tile rooftops, and a façade of sand-colored brick, the center greets patients with old-world charm as soon as they step out of their cars. Inside, parchment-colored walls, cozy furnishing, and potted plants sit in full view of the center’s most stunning feature: a recreation of the Sistine Chapel ceiling.
