Chef-owner Nirman Shah spells Kurry Walah's name with a K for Katy, but his menu's curries are classic with a C. Using Halal meat and traditional recipes, Shah crafts chewy breads, spiced stews, and fresh seafood entrees that pull from a variety of regions. North Indian cuisine, Hyderabadi dishes, and Indo-Chinese fusion all make appearances on the vegetarian-friendly menu. Patrons savor these colorful dishes between the light yellow walls of the dining room.
Color theorists argue that green evokes feelings of relaxation, clarity, and oneness with nature. We can't know for sure if that's what the owners of Jasmine Nails had in mind when they chose to paint their spa's walls pale green?but it certainly helps the space feel even more like an oasis. A menu of services that includes facials, massages, and regular and Shellac mani-pedis adds to the relaxing vibe.
The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the Charleston. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking.
Over the course of 31 years, the smiling staffers at Express Oil Change & Service Centers have learned that customers just want their oil changed fast. Instead of selling extra parts out of an oversize trench coat, staffers work quickly and efficiently to give cars what they crave; quarts of thick, black oil in the blink of an eye without an appointment. Each procedure lasts approximately 10 minutes, during which mechanics will replace the vehicle's oil and inspect its innards for problems. The process is so quick that customers can even wait inside their own vehicles while it occurs, much like a drive-thru car wash or drive-thru dentist appointment.
DoubleDave's Pizzaworks serves up an assortment of hearty, hand-tossed pizzas, Peproni rolls, stromboli, and more. Choose a pie from DoubleDave's selection of specialty pizzas ($19.99 for an 18", $15.99 for a 15", and $12.99 for a 12”)—the buffalo-chicken pizza outfits its surface area in mozzarella, chicken strips, wing sauce, and ranch dressing, while the duplicitous Dave's Fave offers carnivore-coaxing meatball and sausage or veggie-baiting tomato, garlic, and spinach variations on its olive oil, garlic, and oregano sauce base. Do-it-yourselfers are welcome to design their own pies ($10.99 for a 15", plus $1.59 per topping), choosing size, toppings, and the type of crust, and diners wishing to cram their cuisine into claustrophobic confines can opt for a half-dozen Peproni rolls ($7.99), with pepperoni and cheese wrapped into dough. Or escape the boot-shaped grip of the Mediterranean with a Philly cheesesteak stromboli ($10.99 for large, $5.99 for small).
