As a physician and the owner and medical director of Nu U MedSpa and Laser Center, Dr. Priyanka Gambhir takes the time to personally perform each aesthetic medical procedure at her center. Dr. Gambhir firmly believes that these procedures should work toward restoring patients’ natural beauty as opposed to reinventing an entirely new look. To accomplish this, she relies on clinically proven techniques and the most current med-spa technologies she can find, including Alma and Cutera laser systems and skincare products infused with powdered microchips.
Housed within the historic, yet renovated halls of the Clinton Inn Hotel, Palmer's Crossing Restaurant demonstrates a willingness to embrace tradition while incorporating a bit of contemporary flair. The casually refined New American bistro sates diners with reimagined versions of familiar classics, such as meatloaf topped in a hazelnut crust and homemade chicken noodle soup with garden-fresh vegetables. At the same time, the chefs also draw inspiration from international cuisines, including quesadillas stuffed with lobster meat, thin-crust pizzas, falafel burgers with tzatziki sauce, fried chicken and kimchi salad, and Polynesian-style ribs slathered in a Hawaiian barbecue sauce.
Stonework columns, a flickering fireplace, and dark wooden trim all contribute to the dining areas' cozy ambiance. Here, diners sink into high-backed booths or upholstered chairs that surround the tables draped in white linens, which double as sheets for the hotel's ghosts after 2 a.m. A circular bar occupies the main room, creating a casual setting where guests can enjoy eclectic appetizers while sipping wine or cocktails.
At Flow Pilates Centre, Gina Santangelo and her staff have three roomfuls of Stott Pilates equipment at their disposal, including reformers, stability chairs, and vertical frames. It's this ample space and massive equipment arsenal that allow them to offer up to five equipment-based Pilates classes per day, where small groups of eight students focus on strengthening their cores and building lean muscle on the fitness contraptions. For those new to Pilates, mat classes instill the technique's core principles without a reformer's resistance or a pulley's physics equations. But the studio's offerings extend far beyond Pilates, with classes ranging from yoga and Zumba to Xtend Barre and TRX suspension training. Santangelo, who is also a certified health and wellness coach, can also help students replenish and detoxify with her anti-inflammatory nutrition program.
Though nightclubs usually come equipped with dance floors, they aren't exactly kid-friendly. That's where Dance Education Unlimited 2 comes in. The dance center caters exclusively to children and teens, creating a safe outlet for them to boogie, pop-and-lock, and sashay. To do so, the center pairs students with instructors who have performed in hip-hop music videos and choreographed pieces for competitions. The skilled teachers lead their charges through an array of class offerings including ballet, modern, tap, and break dance, instilling discipline, balance, and strength along with skills that will come in handy during college admission dance-offs.
