To create the Renegade roll, the sushi chefs at The Sushi Bar stuff a fresh jalapeño pepper with cream cheese, fry it tempura-style, and top the crispy pepper with salmon, cucumber, and sesame seeds. This creative fusion of Eastern and Western flavors extends to the entire menu. Chefs drizzle a tempura shrimp roll with poblano-basil sauce, for instance, and serve a marinated rack of lamb with a green-tea red miso sauce.
The restaurant features a sleek and minimalist dining room. Slatted wooden arches stretch above the dining room, and bamboo light fixtures glow against pale columns and the contours of every diner’s chiseled features.
Though eyes are widely known as the windows to the soul, Dr. Stacey Rockett sees them as the focal point of her life. In practice as an optometrist for more than a decade, Rockett and her team at Eye Q Vision Center outfit eyes with contacts and face-flattering frames from high-end brands such as Versace and BCBG. Dr. Rockett also screens for and treats common eye diseases, such as glaucoma, and alleviates pain for clients who’ve confused the white bottle of eye drops for the red bottle of sriracha.
Led by optometric physician Dr. L. Mitchell Clary, the friendly staff at Hill Vision helps customers frame their faces with designer glasses. Technicians fit single-vision lenses ($70+) with fashionable frames from designer brands including Vera Bradley, Polo, and Ed Hardy, helping wearers avoid blurry vision caused by near-, far-, or wherever-you-are-sightedness.

For a quick chromatic change-up, an array of colorful Armani Exchange frames (around $180) stands at the ready to match the color of patrons’ eyes or Lite-Brite teeth.
At his family-owned optometric practice, Dr. Jeff Long sharpens vision with prescription lenses and a selection of more than 1,000 frames with over 40 brands. In detailed fittings, the able optometrist garnishes peepers in Nike, Oakley, and Juicy Couture frames and outfits spectacles with single-vision, bifocal, trifocal, progressive, digital, and conventional lenses. A family-friendly establishment, the center extends its services to adults, children, and children stacked in trench coats pretending to be Sherlock Holmes.
Advanced Laser and Cataract Center is a complete refractive center, meaning that eye doctors John Belardo, Matt Brooks, Misty Otte, and Hanni Hagen accommodate each patient's individual needs for vision correction and ocular health with a wide variety of services. As a board-certified corneal specialist surgeon and a fellow of the esteemed American College of Surgeons who has performed more than 40,000 vision corrections, Dr. Belardo uses the latest technology to carefully evaluate the strength of the cornea before recommending a course of treatment. His diagnostic tests help determine whether a patient is a good candidate for other procedures, or whether an alternative, such as intraocular contact-lens implants, may be more appropriate.
The skilled team also performs surgical procedures to address cataracts, glaucoma, or third eyes that incorrectly predict the future, and offers basic vision care in the form of contacts and glasses.
