  • The Sunset Cafe
    In spite of its serene-sounding name, the Sunset Cafe is all about vivacious cuisine that enlivens the palate. Mediterranean-inspired ingredients populate the menu, such as braised goat, Portuguese sausages served over flames, and shrimp simmered in spicy sauce. Chefs stuff clams with parsley and onions and crown pan-seared steaks with fried eggs, creating flavor profiles even more harmonious than the bossa nova soundtrack. Diners can subdue spice with sips of wine, beer, cocktails, or Sumol—a fruity Portuguese soda.

  • Oxford Spa
    Stain sorcerers at Oxford Laundry whisk away heaps of dingy garments from their source, returning them the next day freshly folded and sparkling clean. Treating each frock and sock as if it were their own, laundry professionals will transport a minimum of 20 lbs. of clothing ($1.29/lb.) to a sudsy dimension from which even the murkiest muck flees in terror. After slipping into eco-friendly washers for a soapy cotillion of cleanliness, wearables emerge as pristine as the day they were sewn, with tennis whites bleached to a snowy finish and historically accurate reenactment garb retaining every tat of lace and tasseled fringe. As garments tumble in carefully adjusted dryers, fabric softener cuddles up to fleecy folds for ideal comfort. Dry-clean-only items, such as pea coats ($9.99+) and comforters ($28.99+), receive equally gentle treatment from organic, perc-free solvents.
