An open-flame hearth is at the heart of Cosi's kitchen space, giving sandwiches and pizzas their toasty crunch. But there's a lot more to the menu than what happens under the flame. The T.B.M. sandwich piles tomatoes, basil, and fresh mozzarella inside warm flatbread and the tandoori chicken sandwich brightens up grilled chicken breast with red peppers. Even salads are hearty meals here, with choices such as the cobb mixing greens with grilled chicken breast, bacon, and gorgonzola in a sherry-shallot vinaigrette. The crown on top of any meal here is undoubtedly the s'mores, in which two to four diners roast their own marshmallows over a tabletop fire pit, then sandwich the sugar cloud with chocolate and graham crackers before dragging their sleeping bags into the kitchen for a night's rest.

With more than 700 locations, Jamba Juice proves to the masses that nutrition can be speedy and delicious. Since the beginning, the company?s product philosophy has revolved around choosing whole fruits and other natural ingredients over artificial flavorings, sweeteners, and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and trans fats, and it offers additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets.

This naturalistic approach is fully realized in Jamba Juice's selection of smoothies. Made with 100% fruit juice, sherbet, and frozen yogurt, the frosty delights range from all-fruit smoothies such as peach perfection and strawberry whirl to more indulgent creamy treats, including peanut butter moo'd, an enticing blend of peanut butter, bananas, nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt, and milk chocolate.

For those with heartier appetites, steel-cut oats steep in soymilk before being enhanced with toppings such as apples, cinnamon, and brown-sugar crumble. The lunch hour presents protein-packed mini wraps, toasted bistro sandwiches and California Flatbread that pack only about 320?420 calories each.

Posh Salon & Spa lives up to its billing as a Redken elite salon affiliate with a selection of coloring and conditioning treatments that tap into Redken's professional product line. The salon’s greatest resource, however, is its staff—a group of talented hairstylists who have trained under professional educators and exude southern hospitality. Though the salon bustles with the sounds of lively chatter and snipping shears, the nearby spa is another story. Awash in soft light and backdropped by full-scale mosaics, technicians revamp hands and feet and massage away tension with Swedish, sports, and deep-tissue techniques. More than 10 types of facials fight signs of aging, erasing fine lines and scrubbing away the residue of birthday cakes ceremoniously hurled at faces.

With a dexterous whirl of her hand, a staffer fills a cup with a soft swirl of frozen yogurt that curls into a perfectly formed peak. After festooning the icy treat with a smattering of cookie crumbs and chocolate chips, she hands the cup over to its owner, who eagerly begins excavating the frosty treat.

This scenario plays out daily at I Can't Believe It's Yogurt, where champions of healthy dessert sling frozen yogurt in a multitude of flavors, as well as low-fat, no-added-sugar, and nonfat varieties. The signature soft-serve can be wolfed down unadorned or bedecked with an assortment of toppings, including fresh fruits and hand-polished sprinkles.
