Consuming between 9 and 13 servings of vegetables and fruits each day can seem like a daunting task. But Robeks turns what could be a chore into a delicious pastime, standing behind the idea that you shouldn?t have to sacrifice taste for a nutritiousness?or vice-versa.

Pastry traditionalists may question the cannoli nacho. But consider this: the triangular pastry shells can be dunked into an edible chocolate bowl of sweet-cream filling, forever circumventing the soggy fate that so often befalls cannoli shells. This deconstructed cannoli is just one of DiMare Pastry Shop’s many inventive spins on traditional Italian desserts.
Founded in 1976 by Italian-born Ugo DiMare, the pastry shop is now helmed by his two daughters, who have updated the menu with award-winning European and American creations. In addition to scratch-made pastries, the confectioners frost nearly 30 kinds of cakes, ideal for special events such as weddings, company picnics, and Take Your Cake to Work Day.
American Pressed Bakery’s crew of cookie crafters usher packaged pairs of their signature strooples into the pleading palms and ajar jaws of salivating patrons. Birthed from baker’s scraps in Holland during the 18th century, traditional Dutch stroopwafels wed a pair of crispy, thin waffle cookies with a gooey caramel center. The traveled staff at American Pressed Bakery infuse these tempting treats with worldly flavors and flair, dubbing its reincarnation the stroople. In addition to the original flavor, the bakery concocts a Brazilian coconut stroople, an American chocolate-chip stroople, and an English toffee stroople that is quick to admonish breaches in tea etiquette.
When readers of Greenwich Magazine set out to name the best facial and waxing services in town, they chose Celia B. Skin Care. Since opening in 2004, the skincare center and its owner, Brazilian native Celia Brito, have earned those particular accolades on four separate occasions. Waxing services, which can be applied to a wide range of areas and are available in several packages, are made even more impressive with the optional sugaring: an alternative to waxing that produces the same results while being gentler, safer, and more familiar to the noses of giant ants. Celia B.'s signature facial combines European and Brazilian techniques, like a diplomatic mission for the skin, and the teen facial helps foster great skincare and hygiene habits.
