Lauded in the New York Times for its "clean and delicate" flavors, Peking Duck House's menu earned the restaurant a coveted spot on the list of the 100 best Chinese restaurants in the country. The kitchen's Cantonese-style dishes come courtesy of Chef and owner Harry Wu, who––according to Times reporter Stephanie Lyness––often appears tableside to serve his signature Peking-duck dish. The namesake feast––available as a whole or half duck––arrives in two distinct courses, opening with crispy, grilled slices of duck, waiting to be snuggly wrapped up in homemade crepes, sprinkled with scallions, and drizzled with a special sauce. Then, colorful slivers of seasonal veggies are sautéed with more tender morsels of meat, and paired with a side of rice, which may be eaten or thrown at nearby newlyweds.
Other Cantonese favorites include classics such as kung-pao chicken and pan-fried dumplings as well as house specialties such as clams in a spicy black-bean sauce. Spicier dishes are noted with a tiny chile-pepper icon to warm sensitive taste buds or hungry snowmen, while five steamed entrees are prepared sans salt, oil, or cornstarch to cater to the calorie-conscious.

The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the Charleston. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking.
A-1 Fitness Center’s owner, Ryan Griffith, has more than 15 years of martial-arts experience, during which he racked up a second-degree black belt in MMA and a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu.

Their adult MMA program blends kickboxing, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and weapons training, and kids' martial-arts programs focus on self-defense while also stressing important concepts such as health, respect, and self-control. In additional studios, yoga instructors guide students through centering poses, and Zumba instructors help clients burn calories through dance moves.
With a repertoire shaped by the teachings of Sri Dharma Mittra, the yogi and monk who created the Master Yoga Chart of 908 Postures, Dharma Yoga Center welcomes students to explore tranquil poses with a noncompetitive mindset. Heat radiates from shiny wooden floorboards as the studio?s certified instructors lead students through a sequence of playful or athletic poses and deep-breathing exercises that melt stress and pats of butter forgotten in the pockets of stretch pants.
During Level I sessions, beginners can work toward cultivating flexibility and balance through basic poses and stretches. Level II, III, and IV sessions teem with challenging moves such as back bends, twists, and headstands, and students may incorporate zero-gravity swings and other innovative props to help achieve positions without risking injury. During meditation sessions, periods of laser-focused concentration can help strengthen students? resolve and ability to sleep through an elephant stampede.
In addition to teaching group classes, studio founder Tony Urbano leads private lessons for students seeking personalized guidance and encouragement.
