Ideal Facial Plastic & Laser Surgery's offices, associated with Straka & Mcquone, Inc., are all designed to make patients feel comfortable and safe. Yale graduate and board-certified surgeon Dr. Paul Leong performs all facial treatments, except for laser hair removal, which is done by a trained technician and supervised by Leong. Each option includes a full, personal consultation with Dr. Leong to discuss treatment options and design individualized plans. Laser hair removal works over six sessions to gradually reduce hair growth, and is considerably less painful than getting dipped in hot wax and coated in feathers. The sessions may be used for underarms or any small areas—upper lip, chin, fingers, toes, or ears—but may be upgraded to a medium-sized area (such as bikini line) for an additional $59 per treatment.
Walnut Grill offers refined menus loaded with eclectic comestibles for dinner, lunch, and Sunday brunch. The house specialty is the walnut-crusted salmon ($19), a divine delectable resting atop steamed rice, drizzled in tomato oil, and complemented by a lemon-honey sauce. Crusaders of the carnivore tribe will enjoy the bone-in Kansas City strip steak ($22) with brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes, or the short ribs ($18) with fresh vegetables and mashed potatoes. Beat the red-meat kick with a salad of mixed greenery dressed in a sexy little number of roasted beets, candied walnuts, and parmesan with an appetite-whetting tarragon vinaigrette ($9). The entire menu extends longer than the shelf life of a diamond-plated pickle, offering a generous selection of sandwiches, salads, burgers, pasta, and more.

The technicians at Rewind Memories perform all of their digitization services in-house, ensuring that a qualified expert is always operating the advanced equipment involved in each job. They use high-resolution scanners and digital image-correction and enhancement (ICE) technology to preserve photos and negatives, and they convert the following formats into accessible, long-lasting DVDs: VHS, VHS-C, Mini-DV, Digital8, BetaMAX, Hi8, and 8mm, 16mm, and Super8 film. They also create music-filled slideshows for weddings and other events, and they restore old photographs by removing scratches and dust. Because each job can take several weeks to complete, the company sends email updates.
Rewind Memories provides other valuable services, too. The crew offers hands-on tutorials on how to edit tapes or modify images with photo software, and CEO and president Adam Kunes also directs The Call to Serve, a nonprofit organization that helps college-aged adults discover the power of public service.
