Toll House Caf? by Chip, passionate bakers coax out these memories by using Nestl? products to create decadent desserts that taste just as satisfying as they did years ago.
The dermatological duo of Dr. Avani Bhambri and Dr. Sanjay Bhambri perform their skin-saving treatments from the offices of Texas Dermatology & Skin Cancer Center. Up to four unsightly but noncancerous moles of any size are driven off bodily real estate through the doctors' epidermal expertise, which may include surgical excision, depending on the characteristics of the blemish. The area around the target is numbed with lidocaine before the procedure, ensuring the patient doesn't feel a thing and can preemptively cheat through five years' worth of birthday punches afterward.
Brazil Brasileiro’s enthusiastic staff celebrates Brazil’s culinary and cultural heritage with feasts of sizzling meat and sumptuous spreads of fresh fare. Traditional rodizio meals pepper taste buds with seven different cuts of roasted pork, chicken, and beef straight off the skewer, including the namesake rodizio, Brazil’s signature cut of steak and form of currency. Tableside servers generously carve off unlimited slices of meat garnished with seasonings of zesty pineapple and spicy cinnamon. In addition to dishing out all-you-can-eat roasted meats, Brazil Brasileiro lays out a buffet that satisfies more diverse appetites for tropical fare with a wide array of traditional Brazilian edibles. Like Pele’s brief conquest of the United States, Brazil Brasileiro aims to import an authentic atmosphere of Brazilian joie de vivre onto American shores by broadcasting South American soccer games on flat-screen TVs. Additionally, live music reverberates across the cozy, hardwood walls, and Brazilian souvenirs beckon to shoppers from the restaurant’s gift shop.

The commitment to quality cuts at Hirsch’s Meats is evidenced in every hand-trimmed slab of meat, every handmade sausage, and every serving of fresh-ground beef that sits plump and tender behind the counters. These bona fide butchers have been at it since 1992, cutting and processing meats in-house and refusing to sell any meat that has been weighed down with water, fillers, or byproducts. Each tenderloin, rib eye, and top sirloin is guaranteed to be USDA prime or choice grade, and fresh Iowa pork and natural chickens are always Grade A, but it was the assortment of quality game and seafood that earned the store the Best Butcher Shop nod from D Magazine in 2010. With so much care put into their meats, Hirsch's staff certainly has their hands full, but that doesn't mean they just sell you meat and let you fend for yourself. On the contrary, the shop carries smoking woods such as sweet maple, hickory, and mesquite sweetwood blends, and shelves are stocked with seasonings and the store's own brand of sauces and marinades to ensure that local bib companies never go broke.
The crunch of salt under foot. Soothing strains of spa music. The taste of salt on the lips. These sensations enrapture visitors to Salt Escape's halo-therapy chambers. Claiming accolades from CBS DFW and NBC DFW, experts have designed sterilized chambers to mimic the conditions of ancient salt caves once thought to grant healing properties. Between walls, floors, and ceilings coated in a layer of negative-ionized natural rock salt, Salt Escape works to create a spa environment filled with toys, café tables, and a stereo system to soothe adults and children more effectively than a night-light covered in honey. Halo-generators fill the air with controlled bursts of crushed salt, which generates a microclimate and assuages respiratory and skin conditions. To facilitate comfortable treatment sessions, staff members beckon visitors to recline in zero-gravity chairs, which cradle spines to neutralize the effects of gravity and recent rugby tournaments.
