Board-certified physician James A. Coomes leads Advanced Anti-Aging and Weight Loss, so it's no surprise that the clinic has a decidedly medical bent. The medically supervised weight-loss program incorporates everything from hormone balancing and Zerona body sculpting treatment to lab-analysis work. ??Dr. Coomes turns to such technological tools as nonsurgical Pixel laser skin-rejuvenation treatments, which employ lasers to create thousands of tiny perforations in the skin, thereby stimulating a healing process that can erase fine lines and pigmentation problems. Microdermabrasion treatments revive skin texture and diminish light scars via apparatus-assisted exfoliation, and chemical peels employ fruit acid, herbs, and antioxidants to stimulate the release of dead skin cells from bodily exteriors and encourage the production of collagen and novelty hats. The clinic also offers results-orientated medical facials to clients.
Raffi's Restaurant has perfected its menu of classic Italian dishes since its founding in 1989. Dinners kick off with appetizers such as crab cakes in creamy pesto sauce and toasted ravioli. Entrees arrive next, pleasing palates with bites of spicy shrimp diablo, rigatoni in a rich bacon, pea, and cheese carbonara sauce, and chicken saltimbocca topped with capers, mushrooms, and thin slices of egg, cheese, and bacon.
Wines complement each dish, as do cocktails from the Palm Lounge, Raffi's full-service bar. During warmer months, patrons can sample the Palm Lounge's stock of fine cigars on an outdoor patio that overlooks a bubbling fountain. There, they can blow smoke at their least favorite Internet memes while hooked up to the restaurant's complimentary WiFi.
At Lorenzo's Bistro and Bakery, the bakers make their own dough from scratch for crusty breads baked on the hearth. Every day, visitors can stop in for the warm baguettes, challah, and french bread, as well as daily specials such as Sunday's cracked-wheat loaves.
But the bread is just the start of the culinary journey, which executive chef Wess Rose executes with an eye toward contemporary American dishes and Euro-American influences. Elegant steak, seafood, and pasta join surprise touches, such as the chefs' take on a louisville hot brown—smoked shaved turkey breast atop fresh challah bread topped with tomatoes, cheddar jack mornay sauce, crispy bacon, and chives. Charbroiled salmon fillets glisten with raspberry barbecue glaze, and marinated portobellos and vegetable medleys stuff puff pastries to create vegetable wellingtons, which are topped with pesto and feta.
In the restaurant's foyer, the staff mans a market where people can grab cups of coffee or pick up ready-to-eat entrees to take home. In addition to the breads, customers often drop by to pick up muffins, scones, and sandwiches for meals on the go that are tastier than oatmeal in a tube.
A Cyprus native who grew up in a sun-soaked village with just 1,500 inhabitants, Doros Hadjisavva only meant to visit the United States for a year before returning home. Instead, waylaid by love, he found himself setting down roots in Evansville and bringing the sights and flavors of Cyprus to the US with authentic Greek and Mediterranean dishes. The most eye-catching of these is imported Greek kasseri cheese, which servers flame tableside in brief but intense blazes. Chefs also prepare homemade marinara, tangy feta, or thick, creamy tzatziki alongside moussaka and succulent lamb shanks. Each dish bursts with flavor derived from fresh ingredients, time-tested recipes, and seafood stolen from Aquaman’s summer home. Inside Acropolis’ dining room, marble surfaces and creamy tiles meet the eye as vine-entwined lattices arch overhead.
At Gatti Town Family Entertainment Center, it's expected that guests will work up an appetite. After all, playing your way through over 100 nonviolent arcade games, leaping into the air on a bungee trampoline, and bashing your friends in bumper cars is hard work. At the center's stocked buffet, a dozen different kinds of pizza, a salad bar, pasta, and desserts await hungry families. Twelve-foot TV screens provide entertainment as diners chow down on hawaiian pizza, chicken alfredo, or cherry-pie pizza. Gatti Town is also a perfect spot for birthday parties, during which guests of honor and their friends receive access to private rooms and the buffet, as well as hundreds of tickets to use for games and activities.
When a pizza-craving stomach rumbles in the city, the drivers at Heady's Pizza stand ready to bring it made-to-order pizzas, sub sandwiches, and appetizers any time between 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. Each time the phone rings or an order comes in, cooks begin crowning pizzas with classic toppings of mozzarella cheese and pepperoni as well as inventive sauce bases such as alfredo, pesto, and ranch. While pizzas are baking, the cooks layer sub sandwiches with at least a half pound of meat, preparing the restaurant's signature Chicken Blah Blah subs covered in Blah sauce, mozzarella cheese, and bacon. Carnegie Deli cheesecake slices and baked-to-order cookies end meals on a note as sweet as those played by the horn section of Candyland's marching band.
