The 15 varieties of empanadas crafted at O'LaLa Empanadas and International Cuisine are often seasoned with little more than lime?perhaps because they're zesty enough already. Each is stuffed with fillings such as beans, vegetables, chicken, and pork, and fried to a crispy golden-brown before being branded with the chef's family crest. Dessert variations, meanwhile, feature guava and rich chocolate. Empanadas aren't the only items on the menu, though: the eatery offers Latin-Chinese fusion cuisine and Latin dishes such as arroz chaufa and fried fish.
If there's one thing the optical team at Cohen's Fashion Optical have learned in their 22 years of business, it's that people don't want to wait to see better. That's why they keep their lens laboratory on-site.

Super Impact Fitness Studio eschews clunky and cumbersome gym equipment for a "classes only" workout mantra, rallying physiques between exposed-brick walls and floor-to-ceiling windows for routines led by certified instructors. Guests can sync their breathing to match meditative Vinyasa yoga poses or follow intuitive Zumba dance steps for a full-body burn. Boot-camp drills merge strength and cardio training to target oft-overlooked muscles in ears and phantom limbs. Spin, dance, and mixed-martial-arts sessions—helmed by cage fighter Michael "Sharp" Sanders—also fuel fat-busting drills. The staff promotes a well-rounded approach to health with holistic lifestyle counseling and plans to lodge local artwork, theater rehearsals, and zoological exhibits smaller than a breadbox during SIF Studio Presents showcases.

Food Temptation also sells nearly 100 varieties of microwaveable Indian meals, such as the spicy, protein-packed chana masala ($2.49).
