When Sunita Sadhnani received her graduate degree in kathak dance and classical music back in India, she could have struck out on her own as a professional dancer and musician. Instead, she took her considerable talents to a place far less familiar with the art forms in which she specialized: the United States. She founded Bollyarts and brought aboard a staff of experienced instructors to grant American students insight into Bollywood's colorful, electrifying, and narrative dance moves. There, classes range from classical Indian dance forms such as Bollywood, bhangra, and kathak to the contemporary moves of hip-hop to exercise-focused sessions of yoga and Bollywood fitness. The studio offers its students frequent opportunities to perform locally, in neighboring states, state-shows with Bollywood celebrities, and sometimes both.

True to its name, Crossroads marks the intersection of two seemingly dissimilar hangouts: it houses an elegant dining room clad in black linens and yellow wall sconces where pastas, steaks, and seafood are served, as well as a sports bar stocked with pub grub. As Crossroads' famous marinated skirt steak and seafood fra diavolo top plates in the dining room, the bar's 15 TVs—each one baked fresh that day in time for the game—join a jukebox in wooing eyes and ears. Special events include visits from a local medium who tries to connect clients with the afterlife, get-togethers to cheer on the Rangers and Jets, and holiday meals.
