Chef Charles Youts curates a menu of what he dubs “new American cuisine”—a culinary school that emphasizes farm-to-table dishes made from produce and meats sourced as locally as possible. Youts and his staff members cultivate an organic garden outside that acts as the chef's pantry, where they pick tomatoes, melons, peppers, and herbs minutes before they appear in entrées, a practice that gives dishes bright and complex flavor profiles. Based on what’s ripe in the garden, Youts writes up microseasonal dishes that back up menu mainstays such as radiatore with applewood-smoked salmon and tomatoes.
For carnivores, several cuts of beef from a 14-ounce ribeye to 10 ounces of beef-tenderloin medallions complement sauces that include horseradish cream and blue-cheese crust with port shallots. The Classic Cafe also produces homemade sausage that appears in a mixed grill dish with lamb, beef tenderloin, and a huckleberry demi-glace. A wine list that won the Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator complements the fare with biodynamic, sustainable, and organic wines.
The Classic Cafe’s interior balances rustic, elegant, and casual motifs with a burgundy and hewn wood bar beside a cluster of tables outfitted in white and maroon cloths. Paintings of wine by local artist Carolyn Riegelman hang in the dining room and above an intricate wrought-iron table at the entrance. Outside, a patio ringed in trees and flowers creates a pastoral atmosphere as diners look out onto the garden, where chickens peck and gangs of jack-o'-lanterns bully straight-laced pumpkins. On the patio, the restaurant also holds monthly cooking classes on seasonal topics that range from seafood prep and South American cuisine to cooking with the fall harvest.
Even as a child, Monte Lue dreamed of moving to Texas and starting his own business. With some help from his wife, Patricia, and a little ingenuity when it came to the name, Monte did just that with Lue'isiana Po Boys. But Monte didn't just open the doors, kick back, and let a staff of chefs or sophisticated Rube Goldberg machines do all the work. He prepares every dish on the menu himself, including 10 different po boy sandwiches packed with jumbo shrimp, catfish, and oysters. Kicking up the authenticity by several degrees, Monte uses authentic po boy-grade french bread shipped in from the famed Gambino's Bakery. Though the po boys are the reigning royal family of the menu, Monte and Patricia make enough room for Creole and Cajun delight, such as the crawfish etouffee–savory crawfish cooked with fresh basil peppers, onions, garlic, tomatoes, and Cajun seasoning.

Touch of Pure Joy Massage & Day Spa situates itself as an oasis for physical relaxation, and has relaxed clients with its signature therapies since 1999. A one-hour hot-stone massage gives stressed clients the opportunity to unwind and enjoy an utterly unrushed experience as aromatherapeutic oils perfume the air and stones send warmth deep into muscles. For those experiencing chronic pain or the discomforts of pregnancy, deep-tissue, applied kinesiology, and prenatal massages forge a truce between muscles caught in a tug-of-war match between the office chair and that recliner in the office lobby. When they've explored the spa's extensive repertoire of relaxing massages, clients can extend their day spa mini vacations with a skin-perfecting facial, or bid adieu to sandpaper skin with hand and foot salt scrubs.
