As she struggled to surmount issues with her own weight, Boogie Box Fitness creator Dede Barbanti drew from her professional dance background, martial-arts training, and enthusiasm for exercise to pioneer the gym's rigorous yet fun workout routine. The calorie-flaming moves, which have been featured by Dr. Oz and publications such as Dance magazine, have since spawned BBX Kids and the more vigorous BBX Hardcore. Behind the regimens' popularity lie easy-to-follow steps culled from kickboxing, strength training, plyometrics, and Latin and hip-hop dance. In addition to motivating patrons to shimmy into fitter physiques, Dede channels her expertise as a certified personal trainer and sports nutritionist into the BBX Body membership site. Here, visitors can peruse custom menu plans, exercise tutorials, and life-coaching advice given by the world's smartest biceps.
The chefs at Arirang Hibachi Steakhouse are artists, and their mediums are beef, blades, and fire. On a flaming stage, the red-hatted grillers slice, sizzle, and season meats at lightning pace, then fill the freshly-dropped jaws of their clientele with the finest Japanese-style steaks. Besides NY sirloins and filet mignons, the hibachis serve up Brazilian lobster tails, hand-cut chicken in soy sauce and garlic butter, and and plump Atlantic white shrimp. Not everything is flaming hot, however. Arirang also boasts an impressive sushi menu with specialties such as the coconut shrimp roll with mango and raspberry puree, and their drinks menu ranges from imported Japanese beer to invitingly sweet cocktails.
When Chinese immigrants came to India—specifically Calcutta—centuries ago, they brought with them culinary traditions that slowly merged with local flavors over time. The chef at Bordoloi's Asian Fusion showcases the unique style of Indian-Chinese cuisine that developed from this blending of cultures as he serves up dishes such as chili chicken, Tangra-style mutton, and spicy red manchurian noodles. To accommodate vegetarian diets, the menu boasts a wide variety of herbivore-friendly options, including meatless momo dumplings, okra with chili, and vegetables with cashews.
