Located within Findlay Market since 2010, Panda Chefs serves up an eclectic collection of ethnic foods like sushi sliders and Indian favorites such as shrimp curry all washed down with wheat grass or other healthy drinks. You can enjoy these treats from the east while you take in the sights and sounds of the Market's other vendors and artists. The eatery also offers a handful of classic American desserts such as root beer floats and banana splits. The dining room is open for lunch service Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m with table service or carry out and seating for up to twenty four guests.
Students in 60- to 90-minute classes at the Cheesy Gourmet learn how to make bagel-ready spreads, sliceable block cheeses, and crumbly feta using nothing but cheesecloth and a splash of milk. Participants can snack on provided cheese and crackers or sip wine they brought themselves as they watch Cheesy chefs demonstrate techniques inside a quaint kitchen painted robin’s-egg blue. After the class, guests leave with enough cheesecloth to make their own cheeses or dairy-based paper-maché art projects at home.
A kaleidoscopic array of lustrous gemstones dangles from a turquoise-tinged wall at Classy Beading, highlighting the vast arsenal of baubles that guests use to craft custom pieces of jewelry. Staffers keep more than 50 strands of colorful, precious gemstones on deck every day and enhance the ornaments' elegance with a bevy of accent beads. They dispense jewelry-design wisdom as budding artisans forge their own bracelets and necklaces during on-site workshops and parties, which they can also host at patrons' homes or moon colonies.

The instructors at Pendleton Pilates’ four locations teach 125 classes each week, showing students how to elongate and strengthen their muscles on mats, inflatable exercise balls, and the studio’s reformer machines. During each group or private session, instructors customize workouts that use a rotating selection of 500 core-focused movements developed by Joseph Pilates in 1945. Additional classes include sessions in which students use parallel ballet barres while performing Pilates exercises, as well as spinning classes at the Westchester location.
