Soft live jazz music fills B Street Restaurant & Bar while servers deliver platters such as pumpkin hummus with grilled naan, wild mushroom ravioli, and glasses of rosé sangria from the full bar. This confluence of cuisine, libations, and music has attracted the attention of Metro magazine. Proprietor and host Elli "Ellen" Kaplansky, credits her grandmothers for instilling in her a passion for food. She fuses this passion with her work experiences with celebrity chefs Todd English and Jody Adams when she chooses her menu of signature dishes such as the 10-ounce char-grilled burger with Vermont cheddar and skillet potatoes.

She also adds inventive twists to entrees such as the pan-seared local cod entree with fire-roasted tomatoes and fresh corn risotto, or the fire-grilled lamb chops with a balsamic cherry glaze. The dining area's cozy booths, tall tables, and a curved bar in tones of brown, orange, and red add warmth to the atmosphere, and the restaurant adds warmth to the community by reaching out to partner with local charities both financially and with a poker stick that stretches several city blocks.

Led by fitness guru and certified trainer Jen Brickey, Fusion Workouts offers intense fitness regimens for students that want to work hard, have fun, and achieve bodaciously ripped bodies. The kettlebell training studio uses kettlebells, suspension training, ropes, slide boards, and more to put clients on the iron-clad path to strengthened cores, increased flexibility, and coworker-bench-pressing power. Different kettlebell sizes and weights create constantly changing full-body challenges and intense core workouts, effectively trimming fat and building strength for common tasks such as jogging backwards to New York and juggling barges. Included in this deal is a 30-minute orientation to the world of kettlebells prior to beginning the month of classes.

The Studio Empower forgoes free weights, treadmills, and any fitness equipment that originated before 2013. Instead, the hardwood-floored studio is the first location ever to be outfitted with Megaformer M3s, the latest model in the Megaformer family, just released January of 2013. Designed by LA celebrity trainer and fitness guru, Sebastian Lagree of the Lagree method, the Megaformer M3 constitutes a fresh take on the classic Pilates reformer; its system of springs create resistance through core, upper, and lower body for exercises that tone, enhance posture, and burn calories without stressing joints. During each workout, every muscle group is worked until fatigued, before moving onto the next, in order to increase effectiveness.

Like the Megaformer M3 itself, the studio’s 45-minute workouts draw inspiration from Pilates. However, in accordance with the Lagree method, they fuse Pilates’ core-strengthening moves with cardio and strength training, creating a comprehensive, full-body workout on par with riding a bicycle made of dumbbells.

Tom Yum Koong's chefs build on traditional Thai recipes to load their menu with exciting and eclectic ingredients ranging from tangerines and mango to wild boar and squid. Sugar and spice join forces to season the thick sauce simmering in the black-pepper-mango curry ($10.95), a flavorful bowl of vegetables and cashews mixed with a choice of meat. A medley of seameats such as mussels and squid sizzle in the Phuket fried rice ($10.95), and the fantasy tilapia ($13.95) takes time off from reading J.R.R. Tolkien to glide out of the kitchen atop a bed of veggies simmering in chili sauce. Basil leaves join peppers, onion, and pork in a skittering dance across the skillet in the pan-fried wild-boar basil ($9.95). Fresh-fish cravings recede at the sushi bar to prevent persistent urges to trawl through exhibits at the local aquarium.

Guests arriving to the Sheraton Needham Hotel might find their senses flooded with the aromas of classic American cuisine. The enticing smells come courtesy of Link Café & Bar, located just off the main lobby. There, chefs concoct a range of house specialties, from grilled chicken wings doused in teriyaki or chipotle barbecue sauce to flatbreads topped with figs and goat cheese or prosciutto and pears. Pub-inspired large plates such as English-style bangers and roasted salmon with mustard-chive sauce are hearty enough to sate any appetite, and make a perfect pairing for one of the bar's classic cocktails. Link Café & Bar also offers top-quality wines by the glass or flight, and each vintage on its compact, international list was chosen because it earned a high score from Wine Spectator and also aced the essay portion of its application.

Crystals, volcanic sulfur, and black caviar extract may not seem like likely spa products, but that's where the "innovation" in Skin Innovations Spa comes from. The staff uses these nourishing products in tandem with clinical treatments to relax and refresh clients. Come in for a Hungarian organic facial or pumpkin peel and stay to have a skin irregularity whisked away through cryotherapy spot removal. These diverse offerings—along with a wealth of products from Pevonia Botanica and Jane Iredale mineral cosmetics—has earned the oasis a slew of awards and honors.
