Though its food can be fiery, the atmosphere at Mai Thai Restaurant is decidedly cool. Its photographs of serene beaches create a tropical vibe, complemented by sheer curtains billowing between tables and lights twinkling from inside strung netting. Even appetizers of coconut shrimp and crispy calamari transport diners to a scenic shoreline.
Those hoping for something spicy aren't left adrift, however. The staff increases the heat in each dish depending on what number the diner gives them on their spice scale. Those preferring milder fare can ask for a 0-spice plate, while the truly adventurous can select the maximum 4-spice option, or simply ask for their meal served inside a bottle of sriracha sauce. Flavorful curries also follow a spectrum of spiciness, from the sweet Patpong panang to the more intense Bangkok green. And house specialties employ heat in a more literal way—the volcano chicken, for example, arrives sizzling atop a bed of vegetables with plum sauce.
Let tea become a new safe place to let your humanity glow like a burning pile of old National Geographic magazines. The East Brady Street coffee and tea house offers more than 70 teas by the cup, pot, or ounce, with green, black, scented black, white, periwinkle, herbal, jasmine, and oolong teas priced by their degrees of rarity. House teas, such as the mountain huckleberry or Japanese sencha, go for $1.75 a cup, while $2.75 will put a steaming cup of one of the rare selections, like the organic white plum berry, into your tired hands. Extra-rare offerings, such as the white silver needles tea, go for $3.75 a cup, and all teas are available by the ounce for home-brewed delight. If coffee is what you crave, Rochambo's selection of more than a dozen syrupy sweeteners are on hand to flavor any coffee (starting at $1.40 for a small mug) or espresso ($2.40 and up) concoction, while its specialty coffee creations—including a Summer Sun Latte with honey, butterscotch, and caramel ($3.95), or the Almond Joy mocha, infused with almond and coconut ($3.95)—tempt palates in need of a buzz. Booze-infused specialty coffee drinks, such as the Mood Ring, with Crater Lake hazelnut espresso vodka, Vermeer Dutch Chocolate Cream Liqueur, and a dollop of whipped cream ($6), make for a soothing treat any time before the clock strikes midnight, when Rochambo closes its night-owl-friendly shop every night.
Light ricochets off the Milwaukee River, sending twinkling photons into Invivo Wellness, a gym and wellness center. On the roof, groups of students drink in the fresh air during seasonal yoga classes, their faces warmed by the sun and hair teased by the cool breezes that jump off the river below. Inside the bustling studio, certified instructors—with backgrounds as diverse as dancing and business—lead students through intense fitness classes. They also coach guests during one-on-one personal-training sessions within the sunny space. Whirring cardio machines comprise just one section of the space's equipment selection upon which clients might train.
Adjacent to the fitness center is Invivo's spa, a quiet and relaxed haven to counter the bustle of its next-door sibling. Populated by certified staff, the spa pampers guests with various massages to complement yoga.
