  • Bawarchi Take Out
    Beginning with the time-honored flavors of traditional South Asian cuisine, Bawarchi Indian Cuisine Restaurant's chefs create accessible dishes that represent the culinary traditions of India. Their selection of crepe-like dosas draws inspiration from the southern portions of the country, as evidenced by the mysore masla dosa, lined with spicy chutney and stuffed with vegetables cooked in southern Indian spices. As a demonstration of their commitment to northern cooking techniques, the chefs roast everything from lamb and chicken to shrimp and salmon inside a clay tandoor oven. The chefs even look to the Indo-Chinese border when creating dishes such as the cauliflower fritters cooked in spicy manchurian sauce.

  • Nooddi Thai Chef
    While scanning the pages of Nooddi Thai Chef's eclectic and lengthy menu amid the eatery's oceanic murals, eyes are forced to stop at words that stand out against the traditional "dumpling," "curry," and "satay." The kitchen staff's specialties cause these double takes on a daily basis, as they introduce eccentric proteins such as wild boar in a garlic red curry sauce or saut?ed alligator in an aromatic herb sauce. In addition to their Thai classics, the cooks assemble flavors from across Asia, including those in Vietnamese pho, Japanese yakisoba, and Indonesian mee goreng.

  • Fuel
    A subtle heat spreads throughout Fuel the Soul, distinct from the scorching air at hot-yoga studios that warm the room with thermostats. The muscle-melting energy seeps into muscles, coaxing tension away. This brand of heat comes from a system that emits infrared rays, capable of penetrating deeper into tissues and detoxifying patrons while they move through classic yoga poses. Co-owner Greg Fine explains to Patch.com, "Exercising … in an infrared heated sauna can help you burn calories much faster." The heat emanates from lamps that, according to Greg, are identical to those used by surgeons in neonatal hospital units and fast-food line-cooks in NASA space vessels. Customers can reap the heat's benefits, which include a faster metabolism and easier healing, whether they’re attending yoga classes or simply steeping in the far-infrared sauna. Another offering as unusual as a cat and dog that only fight about who loves the other more is the Gyrotonic workout, "a unique method that uses movements found in swimming, yoga, and tai chi and helps improve strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination." Greg—who studied under Juliu Horvath, the Romanian dancer and exile who developed the exercise to recover after tearing his Achilles tendon and rupturing a few spinal disks—teaches the technique to students of all fitness levels and ages, whether they’re recovering from injuries or courting greater flexibility.

  • Mugshots CoffeeHouse & Café
    Taking to heart the idea that three is a magic number, the owners of Mugshots CoffeeHouse dedicate themselves to a triple bottom-line business model that supports people, profit, and the planet. Organic direct trade beans constitute the whole of the steamy coffee and espresso drinks served by the baristas, and locally raised, earth-friendly foodstuffs comprise each hot sandwich found on the menu. Much of the money generated by the brisk bean trade goes toward charities of both local and international origin. When not welcoming community organizations for meetings or fundraisers, the venue shows off its artsy side with film nights, open mics, and staged readings of VCR instructions.

  • Saladworks
    The rhythmic sound of a chopping knife behind the counter at Saladworks means that someone has just ordered one of its entree-size signature dishes. Under the customer's watchful eye, the staff preps each bowl of greens to order, slicing veggies and grating fresh cheese every day. These greens get tossed with protein options such as chicken or roasted turkey, and housemade croutons and bacon add a crunchy texture. A white or wheat tortilla can embrace these ingredients for a handheld meal, making for easier eating while driving to work or directing runners to steal third.

  • Leziz Turkish Cuisine
    S & H Kebab House is a family-owned restaurant that features a menu of authentic, regional eats. Contrary to cartoon logic, kebabs aren't just overgrown toothpicks studded with meat cubes. Rather, "kebabs" refer to meats marinated and cooked on a large skewer; whittled-down baseball bat is optional. S & H offers both stuck and unstuck kebabs. Skewered versions include chicken shish kebab ($13.95) and shrimp shish kebab ($18.95), while free-form kebabs include lamb döner kebab ($13.95) and Turkish meatball kebab ($13.95). For those preferring plant-based protein, S & H Kebab House offers multiple vegetarian dishes, including a six-piece falafel dinner ($13.95) and a vegetable sauté with rice ($13.95). Traditional dishes such as baba ghanoush ($5.95) and hummus ($5.95) are also available as kebab kickoffs.
