An outdoor heated mineral pool beckons guests at the Garden Gate Day Spa, but its appeal lies in more than just its smooth surface. As visitors slip beneath the surface, underwater music floats gently into the eardrums. Similarly soothing details pop up throughout the spa: a rain shower and dry saunas stand ready in the women's changing room, an aromatherapy room engages the olfactory system, and luxurious spa packages encourages all-day visits.
The chefs at Izumi Sushi & Grill Restaurant craft hot and uncooked entrees with the goal of introducing new diners to the comforting flavors of traditional Japanese cuisine. Papery lanterns create a warm, intimate atmosphere as they cast golden light on panko-breaded pork or red-snapper katsu and bowls of stir-fried yakisoba noodles tangled around vegetables and chicken. A wooden fish hangs from the wall behind the sushi bar as chefs assemble elaborate rolls including the Firecracker, a crunchy combination of crabmeat and shrimp tempura topped with spicy tuna and house sauce. The decor adds to the peaceful experience, with blossoming cherry trees painted on the walls, a rustic wooden booth and sushi bar, and plates made out of old Pure Moods CDs.

Every day, the chefs at Lucia create a special vegetarian entree using local, regional ingredients. It’s their way of offering a healthful alternative to the heavier steak and seafood dishes on the main menu. It’s also an example of how the restaurant emphasizes environmentally friendly practices; in addition to using local and regional grown foods whenever possible, they serve purified water to reduce the use of plastic bottles and the mess of bringing your own handfuls of water from home. They also donate all unused food to the Roadrunner Food Bank or compost it into fertilizer for local gardening projects.
Lucia’s menus are updated each season with internationally-inspired dishes such as hazelnut dusted chilean bass with truffle mashed potatoes, pistachio crusted tofu steak, and grilled Atlantic salmon. The restaurant, which was crowned Best Downtown Restaurant 2012 by Weekly Alibi, also has a full bar, where you can order hand-mixed cocktails and 14 wines by the glass. Feel free to enjoy your meals and libations in the plush dining room or take them out to the pet-friendly outdoor patio.
