International Food Club recruits fresh and packaged cuisine from more than 20 countries across the globe. The store aisles are arranged by country of origin: customers can traipse down the British aisle for tea and biscuits, or nab guava jam and hot sauce from the Caribbean section. Middle Eastern staples make up the store’s most robust aisles, granting U.S. palates brief reprieves from licking American-flag stamps in favor of sweet halva, fragrant spices, and couscous. That focus extends to the café, where chefs roll falafel and gyro meat in pita bread with sides of hummus and tabbouleh along with other menu items.
Drawing on as many local and sustainable ingredients as they can find, Harmoni Market's chefs create Mediterranean-inspired lunch and dinner menus that take taste buds on an island tour of the wine-dark sea. At the sound of the city's unnerving dinner siren, preface your feast with a heaping plate of Mediterranean nachos, which swap the tortilla chips with crispy pita and buries them in red-pepper hummus, spicy tzatziki, Harmoni salsa, kalamata olives, and feta ($10). Market mussels swimming in white-wine garlic butter sauce ($12) will similarly prepare you to follow the meat rainbow to pots of diverse flavors, such as pan-seared scallops with roasted tomato couscous ($18) or flat-iron steak served with garlic mashed potatoes and a fig balsamic ($16.50). Lunchers, on the other hand, can forget the office's acidic coffee and nudity-filled PowerPoints over a caprese panini made with mozzarella, basil, and locally grown tomatoes ($8.50) or the salty and sweet Harmoni Signature, which loads figs, bacon, tomato, and blue cheese onto a fresh-baked flatbread ($9).
With 35 years of experience, the medical staff at Progressive Wellness Center leads patients in reimagining their current state of health. Weight-loss programs centered around HCG help clients turn bulky bodies into slimmer, stronger silhouettes, and aesthetic injectables work to tighten slack skin or shoo spider veins from appendages.

To keep patients happy and relaxed before and after appointments, Progressive Wellness Medical Center maintains comfortable seating and a café area stocked with healthful shakes, as well as organic coffee and green tea.
Even though it’s surrounded by steamy, tropical heat rather than London’s notorious fog, The British Shop still provides an authentic UK shopping experience thanks to its expansive stock of traditional English treats and gourmet groceries. These classic British treats include Devon clotted cream, Branston pickles, and excessively wry jokes, as well as dozens of teas and accessories by brands such as Harrisons & Crosfield, Twinings, and British Gourmet Tea Company. Since many of the shop’s jams, crisps, and biscuits rarely make their way to American shores, visitors can delight in discovering new treats or rediscovering old favorites.
