Family-owned J & M Power Washing fields a staff of friendly technicians who keep residential and commercial exteriors clean, and they do it using environmentally conscious products. During power-washing sessions, the team rinses away grime from driveways, decks, or trespassing neighbors using biodegradable soap. They apply a gentler touch when washing windows or removing debris from gutters. As a long-term solution for gutters, the company installs American-made steel gutter covers to keep debris out.
In the world of pizza, it's difficult to stand out, but Jay Seefeldt?owner of WiseGuys Pizza?is up to the challenge. Jay, whose been in the pizzeria business since he was 16 years old, uses two unique sauces to craft his signature pies. One is a sweet italian variety. The other is a more traditional, Old-World-style sauce. With these sauces in-hand, Jay and his staff cook gourmet pies, including the taco pizza with ground beef, the chicken-finger pizza, and the Jack Daniels pulled-pork pizza doused in barbecue sauce. Beyond pizza, WiseGuys offers wings with over 25 different sauces, burgers, tacos, and a massive list of more than 30 subs, including the Hitman, a sandwich that can also be used as a club to bludgeon anyone trying to steal your meal.
Francesca's Ristorante Italiano's eggplant fra diablo won Taste of Buffalo's 2012 Pat Sardina Memorial award for Best Comfort Food, and the lemon strawberry sorbet won Taste of Buffalo's award for 2013 Independent Health Foundation's Healthy Options, but those aren't the only items on the eatery's menu that could have qualified. Other dishes with sumptuous, rich flavors include the eatery's rustic Italian pizzas, which chefs paint with a signature red-wine sauce or garlic-cream-cheese spread, as well as the osso buco with tender, slow-cooked beef shank and oyster mushrooms packed into ravioli. While navigating forks through tubes of housemade manicotti stuffed with ricotta cheese, patrons can enjoy the melodies of occasional live music or launch paper airplanes off the outdoor patio. Dark wood accentuates the fully stocked bar, replete with wine, beer, and cocktail makings.

Doctor of Chiropractic Mohamed Munassar studied exercise physiology at the University of Buffalo and received a master's degree in nutrition at his alma mater, New York Chiropractic College. That well-rounded training comes in handy at Chiro First Wellness Center, where services range from spinal adjustments, to laser therapy, to nutritional counseling services. In addition to using traditional hands-on adjustments to alleviate pain, Dr. Mo?as he affectionately known?also employs cutting edge technology, including a ProAdjuster machine, which uses highly sensitive spinal scanning equipment to location joint mobility issues throughout the body.
