Owner Janae Frantz founded her pedicure studio on the belief that “individual and community healing can be achieved simultaneously." In private pedicure rooms, she uses eco-friendly materials and vegan, organic SpaRitual products, which help make her environmental footprints smaller than a moccasin-clad hummingbird’s. She spreads these same conscientious business practices to people in her community by donating 10% of her spa’s proceeds to a different charity each month.Massage and relaxation form the axis of Janae’s pedicures, and she folds her formal reflexology training into each session. Hot stones and warm, melted paraffin are also available to maximize patrons’ pampering. Stringent sanitation practices are a hallmark of her treatments, with disposable foot files, nail files, and bowl liners bidding adieu after only one use.

Featuring an interior that recently emigrated from the Emerald Isle, Dublin Square Irish Pub embodies a genuine Gaelic oasis with two full-service bars, cozy private tables, and a rich menu of traditional pub favorites. Appetizers include the Dublin hush puppies, where Guinness-battered corned beef and potatoes slip into a business-casual shoe of horseradish sauce to perform a lively Riverdance with other starters, such as the parmesan-crusted baked blue crab and brie. The Belfast fillet tips, rich with the flavors of garlic and plum sauce, perch atop a mound of jasmine rice and leeks, and the chicken Ramona—stuffed with spinach, herbs, and cream cheese—luxuriates in mustard cream. Much like a lavish garden wedding, turnips, celery, carrots, and onions revel in a rich sherry sauce within the golden brown crust of the Lanebourough shepherd's pie, officiated by succulent lamb. Nineteen craft beers lurk behind the two full-service bars, and a UN of wines resolve their petty differences with a hearty toast.
