Conceived by fashion designer and celebrity stylist Heather Thomson, Yummie Tummie streamlines women's figures with cleverly engineered, lightweight shapewear. Each sleek top incorporates a firming midsection panel into the compression cotton to smooth or hide lumps, bumps, and embarrassing romance novels. The Yummie Tummie original tank ($62), lauded by Oprah in 2008, excels alone or as a comfy base for a layered look. Offering a sleeker design with wider straps and a raised back neckline, the skinny tank ($62) rests on adjustable silk straps and fits up to a size-H chest. Each cotton tank provides support in white, black, and nude color options, unlike the Sherman tank, which provides support only in green camouflage.
With a delectable selection of chophouse favorites from land, sea, and sky, Austin's Seafood and Steak gives premium proteins new homes on plates and palates. Each of Austin's certified Angus steaks—from the 8-ounce top sirloin ($12.99) to the 14-ounce cajun ribeye ($20.99)—is hand-cut daily by kitchen beefmasters, preserving freshness and appeasing the cravings of the restaurant's eager-to-help meat cleavers. Fish and fowl round out the menu, as tender scallops ($16.99) bring familiar comfort to tables of off-duty mermaids. The Mardi Gras chicken ($12.99) throws a tablecloth Carnival with a colorful assortment of peppers, onions, and sauces served in the shape of a smiling-jester float.
Live music regularly reverberates off Samba Loca Brazilian Steakhouse's bright-red walls, which bear festive decorations of ethnic artwork and wine racks crafted from gleaming chrome. Patrons sit under the full bar's flat-screen TVs, around tables, or in booths as the kitchen’s Brazilian recipes power entrees of 10-ounce strip steaks and salmon doused in Brazilian honey-dijon mustard. Customizable meals come in the form of five grill-fired meats, including filet mignon and red snapper, which don one of nine traditional sauces splashed with notes of curry, blue cheese, or passionfruit. To help them to decide, patrons not fluent in Portuguese can rely on the menu's English and Klingon translations or gaze at screens that feature photos of Samba Loca's signature dishes.
