In the dead of night in 1976, the Abi-Najm family boarded a cargo ship bringing only what they could carry; an escape from Civil War in Lebanon called for a quick getaway. They traveled across the ocean to safety in Arlington, Virginia, where they were able to open a small cafe in 1979. To save money, they changed the eatery?s name from ?Athenian Taverna? to ?Lebanese Taverna? so that they only had to update one word on the eatery?s marquee.

From these modest beginnings grew a series of eateries that today comprises of six cafes and four quick-service caf?s, all still operated by the Abi-Najm clan. One look at the menu explains the success: chicken shawarma, spicy hummus, lamb tartare?all Lebanese staples that helped the restaurant earn a spot on Northern Virginia magazine's list of 25 Iconic Eats. There's even kibbeh, or stuffed meatballs, which blend ground beef, lamb, almonds, and pine nuts into fried spheres suitable for felling miniature bowling pins on top of the table before entrees arrive. The decor is as striking as the cuisine; inside the Bethesda location, light filters through the colored glass lanterns that decorate the dining room.

Melt Cafe and Gelato Bar grounds its recipes and preparation techniques in Italian tradition, creating desserts that are low in both fat and calories. The franchise encompasses brick-and-mortar storefronts and kiosks across five states. In each, staffers craft the classic whipped Italian ice cream, gelato, in more than 30 flavors such as cappuccino, pistachio, and swiss chocolate. Dessert cups also brim with silky-soft sorbetto, which is made entirely from sugar and fresh fruits. Though Melt focuses on frozen treats, it also lives up to the café portion of its name with hearty panini sandwiches and sweet or savory crepes. Tuscan-style espresso and drip coffee wash down bites of food and give you the energy to finish that screenplay about the lost dog who, by finding his owner, also finds himself.

Scott Nash started MOM's Organic Market in his mom's garage. He repurposed the space as a warehouse for organic goods, dispatching orders to local buyers. When he outgrew the space, he rented an actual warehouse, and then a bigger one, eventually outgrowing the home-delivery business and replacing it with a retail outlet. From there, the business mushroomed like a naturally grown, pesticide-free mushroom—it now maintains 10 retail locations across Maryland and Virginia. Each location subscribes to a single mission—to protect and restore the environment. Store managers stock organic and local products whenever possible, and reduce waste by minimizing packaging. To power their stores, they call upon natural energy sources, such as wind and the earth's molten core. As an added benefit, they buy in bulk to keep prices low and author recipes that transform organic produce into delicious meals.

Nerve impulses travel along the spine to reach other areas of the body. So when vertebrae get out of alignment, this all-too-important form of communication can be disrupted, and all of the body's systems can be effected. That's where Dr. Jerry Radas of Fulton Family Chiropractic comes in. Using his knowledge and years of training, he can identify subluxations of the spine which may be the underlying cause of everything from headaches to stomach pains. Using his findings, he designs treatment regimens that combine chiropractic adjustments with daily exercises and posture hints, which all work together to revert the spine to its natural alignment. Dr. Radas also complements his chiropractic work with massage therapy, which can have many benefits including relief of tension, better flexibility, and improved sleep when napping on your own home table.
