Though its name suggests an exotic location in the Himalayan foothills, Delhi Heights is just a short drive from Manhattan in Jackson Heights. A menu that focuses on traditional Indian and Indo-Chinese fusion dishes makes the short trek worth it. One of the restaurant’s signature dishes is the dahi aloo papri chat, and one bite of the textured blend of crispy potatoes, chickpeas, and tamarind sauce shows why. Chefs prepare dozens of their other entrees in a tandoori clay oven, enhancing jumbo shrimp and achari mushrooms with smoky flavor without having to cook each individually on the tip of a cigar.
Kickboxing classes deliver a knee to the face of fat, burning up to 860 calories an hour with the high-energy striking moves of martial arts and boxing. All four limbs get in on the bag-bludgeoning action at iLoveKickboxing as each class (a $15 value per class) provides a full-body workout that tones arm, leg, and tentacle muscles while tightening the body’s core and improving balance. Hitting the heavy bags won't skin your knuckles once you don the included boxing gloves, which also double as excellent spring-loaded props for re-creating Three Stooges gags. Classes take place Mondays and Wednesdays at 9:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.; Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9:30 a.m. and 7 p.m.; Fridays at 9:30 a.m. and 6 p.m.; and Saturdays at 9 a.m.
At Naturopathic Spa, issues of health and beauty all come back to what you're putting in your body. That's why nutrition is at the core of the spa's philosophy, and the staff uses nutritional counseling not just as a method for weight loss, but also for maintaining energy, boosting immune function, and supporting gastrointestinal health, among many other physiological benefits. In that spirit, clients can also obtain herbal medicines and book detoxifying services such as lymphatic drainage. Even beauty treatments are rooted in natural ingredients, such as collagen and oxygen facials. There are more advanced services as well, including microdermabrasion and removal of warts and skin tags.
Housecleaning services include dusting, vacuuming carpets, mopping floors, changing linens, emptying wastebaskets, and annihilating cobwebs. In the kitchen, one of Today's maids will clean the sink, microwave, and stovetop before wiping down the outside of all appliances and cabinets. Bathrooms sparkle with clean mirrors, toilets (inside and out), and unscuffed showers and tubs. (Click here to see a list of available services.) Maids are trained and experienced in the art of grease spatters, shoe scuffs, straggly marooned hairs, disheveled linens, and messes. They'll ask you for direction and focus on the areas you need cleaned the most; all services are customized to the customer's needs.
For more than three decades, Barry Silverman and the bloom arrangers at PC Floral Designs have been orchestrating custom arrangements and baskets for special occasions. They emphasize individual customer satisfaction with their PC "personal touch" approach, approaching each pot, vase, and basket like it’s the first one they’d ever laid eyes on. They carefully help clients select the proper petals for their recipient, grouping cymbidium orchids for a tropical plant–lover or arrange a token of appreciation to send to compassionate bosses, well-behaved relatives, and other fictional characters. They also specialize in surrounding brides with favorite blooms, including pew arrangements and elegant huppahs.
