With a menu that introduces traditional Italian fare to a modern culinary sensibility, Adesso Bistro's chefs have garnered acclaim from a host of publications including the Vancouver Courier and the Globe and Mail. "Adesso" translates to "now" in Italian, symbolizing the culinary artisans' commitment to turning fresh locally sourced and organic ingredients into vibrant plates that carry the flavours of Italy's northwestern coastal region Liguria. Known for its capital city of Genoa, the seafood-loving region is dotted with small towns that produce dynamic takes on Italian staples such as foccaccia, pesto, and calamari. Adesso's owners line its facade with lush vegetation and accent the dining room with dark wood tables and chairs. Servers flit imported and local wines to tables dotting the outdoor patio among neatly trimmed bushes and the sweet sounds of the eatery's three squirrel tenors.
When Angel Tips opened the doors to its single Long Island store in 1996, it had a simple premise: to offer professional nail, waxing, and beauty services at an affordable price. Although the company has expanded to more than 60 locations across New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut since then, their focus on professionalism remains the same. They even require all of their licensed professionals to hone their skills at a specialized training center in Connecticut.
Though Angel Tips expertly performs waxing services and installs eyelash extensions, their specialty lies in nail care. Their technicians perform traditional, gel, and acrylic manicures, as well as specialty pedicures with paraffin and hot stone massages. Cleanliness, like professionalism and affordability, is a top priority; all locations use sanitized tools, disposable files and buffer pads, and pedicure chairs that have fully outgrown their teenage grunge phases.
The technicians at Elegant Nails & Spa place great emphasis on not only maintaining but improving the health of nails and skin through the use of high-quality products—including dozens of OPI polishes and UV gels—alongside strict hygiene standards. Staff members offer each client one-on-one attention from a small number of manicure stations in coordinating creams, taupes, and mochas as well as pedicure chairs that feature built-in footbaths, massaging backrests, and a tin-can telephone connected to a neighboring chair. A short list of spa services centers on deep-cleansing facials and Swedish or deep-tissue massages.:m]]
Warm earth tones, floral paintings, and plush furnishings greet clients as they stroll through Emily's Skin Care's studio. The studio’s private treatment room sets the scene for a variety of services, from customized massages to full-body waxing sessions. In the nail area, technicians wrap digits with UV gels, tips, or french manicures that leave nails naturally colored, yet unnaturally invincible to schoolyard insults. In the comforts of treatment chairs, skin experts perform one of seven femalecentric facials powered by G.M. Collin skin care products. The team also revives body and mind with deep cleanses, therapeutic massages, and complimentary eyebrow-shaping services.
The team of licensed stylists at Angel's Hair Salon and Day Spa tends to hair with products by So.Cap and Paul Mitchell under the leadership of an owner with 30 years of experience. This seasoned captain wields dual degrees from Leon's Beauty School and Christine Valmy Inc. In addition to haircare services such as cuts, organic color, and highlights, stylists also offer spa treatments such as manicures, facials, massages, and waxing. When they aren't beautifying clients, they study advanced techniques, such as crafting versatile styles with quantum superposition.
