Stephen Smith, the literal wizard behind the figurative curtain at Planet Beach Contempo Spa, has developed a variety of efficient, self-guided treatments that beautify skin or relieve stress at the touch of a button. Patrons can pay an affordable monthly membership fee at four Miami-area locations to access the automated services, which include sunless spray tans, traditional or high-pressure UV tanning, and full-body hydration treatments that nourish skin and can extend the life of a tan. The Luminous facial device has been designed to fight signs of aging with light therapy, and several types of massage beds melt away stress.
Guests pay an additional fee only for the products that correspond to the services they want. A sauna-suit purchase is required for the infrared sauna, and teeth-whitening treatments require a mouth guard that can be used for games of full-contact horseshoes.
In the last 40 years, Portrait Scene's photographers have helped to memorialize special moments in the lives of thousands of children, teens, and adults across the country. By constantly working with families, they have mastered the art of calming toddlers and keeping parents still enough to say or even pasteurize cheese. Outdoor shoots make use of natural tones, such as those of crystal-blue lake waters and green, leafy trees. In the spring months, photos brim with the pastel buds of tulips and the shine of bluebirds applying makeup for the first time all year.
Most of the time, deviled eggs are pretty straightforward. Chef Will Biscoe bucks this trend by offering to accessorize his deviled eggs with a scoop of decadent Osetra caviar normally reserved for the ocean's wealthiest dolphins. This adventurous streak is evident throughout the El?eat Restaurant & Lounge's menu, which is full of what the Biscayne Times calls "unpretentiously upgraded multicultural comfort foods."
Four Disparate Dishes
|Braised short ribs spend seven hours simmering before being plated alongside cheddar grits||Aromatic garam masala lends savory spice to the salmon tagine's chickpea stew with lemon and tomato|
|After dredging avocado wedges in cumin-seasoned breading, chefs fry the fritters, then add a sweet and spicy sauce||A croissant bun cradles the 8-ounce Black Angus burger's patty of ground brisket, chuck, and short rib|
A Glance Inside
Extravagant lighting creates an eye-catching look in all of El?eat Restaurant & Lounge's dining areas. Strands of crystals form glowing, chandelier-like orbs above the bar, casting wavy patterns onto the white linen-clad tables nearby. In the lounge section, a walk-in-closet-sized display case glows against the wall, drawing diners' eyes to the wine bottles suspended on the racks just beyond the glass doors.
As a member of the American Dental Association, Dr. Martin Leon has been enhancing smiles since 1987. Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment.
