Medical Director Dr. Roger B. Olsson joined The Renewal Center as a way to let his naturally artistic eye flourish through custom cosmetic treatments. Dr. Olsson?s team, led by medical aesthetician Kristina Kushner, performs several skincentric procedures that employ a fleet of modalities for facial and body rejuvenation?including Botox and fillers, lasers, and radio-frequency devices. They also offer an age management program to restore youthfulness, which includes a consultation and personalized recommendation of treatments, such as bioidentical hormone optimization. Most of The Renewal Center?s procedures require little to no downtime, meaning after their procedure, clients can leave the office and immediately attempt to lasso any loose mechanical bulls they come across.
The Loft Cafe & Courtyard marries the rustic beauty of lodge-like architecture with a modern menu of Pacific Northwest and Mediterranean flavors that change periodically. Their executive chef has crafted a catalog of small and large plates that pair regional meats and seafood with house-made sauces. Large parties can even request a custom menu for their festivities, instead of piling their entrees into the shape of a birthday cake.
The chef dispatches all meals to two floors, where shadows cast by hanging lights and black chandeliers play across wooden ceiling grids. He also sends meals out to the courtyard, where towering heat lamps warm hands grasping moscow mules?one of the eatery?s many handcrafted cocktails. During happy hour, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. every day, guests take advantage of the lower cocktail prices and while snacking on appetizers from the happy hour menu.
Perhaps it’s the new releases, the waterfront location, or the nearby cafes and restaurants that garnered the solitary screen at Edmonds Theater more than a thousand approving thumbs on Facebook. Or maybe it was that historic screen itself, flickering like a time-traveling DeLorean or the fire that engulfs an inexperienced magician’s top hat in an old-fashioned movie house complete with colorful murals and balcony seating. No strangers to performing their movie magic, the cinephile staff members of Edmonds Theater have fostered a devoted following. Generally screening one new movie at a time, they are also known to set aside a day or seven for thematic marathons, which go down even better with candy, nachos, or kettle corn.
Twice a week, O2 Sushi flies seafood from Japan and South Korea all the way to its restaurant, allowing guests to taste fresh fare from across the world. Mackerel, tuna, and yellowtail fish appear in the raw form inside sushi rolls and atop miniature mounds of rice. Chefs also incorporate fish in an array of cooked dishes, including grilled salmon blanketed in teriyaki sauce and abalone congee, which is a slow-cooked rice porridge with stir-fried abalone. Diners craving something other than seafood can fill up on meaty dishes, such as chicken katsu and beef mixed with stir-fried udon noodles.
