Chefs at George Martin's Strip Steak stand guard at roiling broilers, anticipating the exact moment when each dry-aged Angus steak within has perfectly browned. Ladles of béarnaise and au poivre sauces in hand, the kitchen staff sends each order—flanked by ramekins of sautéed vegetables or hand-cut french fries—out into the cozy, candlelit dining room. Wines and signature cocktails, such as ginger cosmopolitans, pair with each entree, including the restaurant's eponymous steaks, free-range chicken, brazilian lobster tails, and veal chops. George Martin's Strip Steak also caters special events, from small gatherings in its private dining rooms to onsite celebrations for up to 100 tuxedoed mannequins.
If not for its bright yellow color and the mural of a cornfield painted across its doors, Go Green Dry Cleaning’s 1969 Volkswagen could almost be mistaken for the Scooby-Doo gang’s Mystery Machine. But instead of fighting ghost-impersonating criminals with their wits, the owners of this van fight clothing stains and biohazards with environmentally friendly dry-cleaning techniques. Akin to liquid sand, their GreenEarth silicone solution forgoes harsh chemicals, irritants, and odors to clean clothes in a manner that is safe for both customers and the earth. The shop’s technicians restore all sorts of fabrics—including wool, silk, and Sasquatch fur—bequeathing each with a soft, static-free touch before packaging them in biodegradable plastic. The team then hops into the van, which runs on E85 ethanol, to deliver the freshly laundered clothes directly to doorsteps. Aside from using gentle solutions to clean up sweaters and pants, Go Green Dry Cleaning supports the earth by contributing to organizations across Long Island, including Go Green Festival and the Soular Soundz concert series.

The weight-loss experts at Long Island Medical Wellness scale back weight gain by getting to the heart of the physical and emotional issues that may have caused it. The staff, which include a doctor who specializes in bariatric medicine, administer a combination of energy-boosting supplements, personalized meal plans, and exercise to tackle the metabolic aspects of staying slim. Meanwhile, individual counseling sessions provide valuable encouragement and advice, such as tips on how to use asparagus spears to make a filling soup or a fetching bolo tie. The center also bolsters patients' self-images with aesthetic treatments, such as cosmetic injectables.
The board-certified physicians at The Center for Medical Weight Loss draft up holistic, nonsurgical weight-loss plans, offering dietary and fitness guidance while helping patients overcome behavioral blocks that inhibit slimming down. Consultations last approximately 30 minutes and begin with a thorough review of medical histories. Clients then hop on an advanced scale that calculates bodily levels of fat, muscle, heroism, and water before machines glean resting metabolism rate and blood pressure. Based on these data and an in-depth conversation about fitness goals, physicians prescribe a weight-loss plan covering diet and exercise that accounts for any emotional, mental, and physical barriers that interfere with pound shedding. Physicians discuss strategies to help clients overcome factors such as stress-related eating patterns and hauntings by ghostly bacon strips. After consultations, patients receive vitamin B12 and fat-burning injections that help jump-start fitness quests.
