Chef Levi and Chef Joannetta rely on a combined 50 years of experience to whip local ingredients into catered and buffet-style meals in Asian Pacific, European, kosher, diabetic, and vegetarian cuisines. During lunch and dinner buffets, guests hush tummy rumblings with entrees from one of seven international categories. Buffets overflow with heaping portions of crusted brown-sugar ham, fruit blintzes, candied yams, and Ethiopian delicacies as hungry guests line up to refill empty purses. Alternatively, during catered breakfasts, guests munch on a choice of 25 or 50 morning staples, filling bellies with hot items such as omelets and fried chicken with waffles, pastries such as scones and sweet rolls, and energizing brews such as coffee and juice. Guests opting for baked sweet treats receive 12 small sweet potato pies baked from scratch and ready to launch at the faces of miniature clowns.

When they aren't being scrubbed or trimmed, the pups at Baths Barks and Bubbles Pet Spa romp and play together in the spa's fenced-in yard, instead of anxiously waiting confined in a cage or pet carrier.

The team's passion for every dog's well-being extends to their spa services, which include teeth cleanings, baths, and haircuts that leave fur as neatly trimmed as Danny DeVito's in his crowning role as Air Bud. In addition to standard grooming, they pamper furry companions with creative grooming, safely complementing coats with vibrant colors and stripes.
