At Surf & Turf 35 and Fish Market, meat and seafood are not the only culinary worlds brought under one roof. The spot also joins together sit-down dining with a marketplace teeming with fresh meat and seafood. For those looking for a dining experience, Surf & Turf 35's chefs craft classic dishes such as oysters on the half shell; steamed, broiled, or stuffed lobster; and Italian-style beef roast. They also put their own spin on the surf-and-turf concept with steak and shrimp scampi, chicken-and-shrimp francese, and grilled pork and shrimp. And since the dining room is BYOB, guests can bring the bottle of wine or jug of vintage Crystal Pepsi of their choice to enjoy with their meal.

After performing traditional Greek folk dance for celebrities, politicians, and even Greek royalty, Rozalia Aravantinos Xidias opened Asana Yoga + Dance. There, she helms a staff of instructors who perform Greek folk dance at weddings, christenings, and building demolitions. They also teach yoga, dance, and fitness classes to both adults and children, ensuring all classes are capped at a small number so each student receives personal attention. Inside the state-of-the-art facility, kids learn hip-hop and jazz moves and grown-ups glide peacefully through Hatha and Vinyasa poses or trim their waistlines during energetic Zumba classes. Girl Scouts can also visit the studio for a one-hour folk-dance lesson, which culminates in a folk-dance merit badge.

Upon entering the Count Basie Theatre, guests might feel as though they’ve slipped through a crack in time and ended up in the early 1900s. Opulent marble staircases and gold details grab the eyes of visitors, recalling the decadence of Hollywood’s history and gently pulling them to the auditorium. There, the acoustically pleasing construction wins out as sound spreads and funnels through a sunburst dome embellished with a dangling chandelier. Since opening in 1926, the Count Basie has earned numerous accolades, including a nod from Pollstar magazine, who listed it as one of the Top 100 Worldwide Theatre Venues.
