Irving's For Red Hot Lovers was featured on Food Network's Food Finds for its top-notch takes on windy-city standards such as Polish sausage, juicy Italian beef, and Chicago–style dogs. It recently gave its interior a fresh new look with a renovation, but the menu of hearty eats remains the same. Pair a pure beef jumbo Red Hot ($3.40) with crispy sweet potato fries ($2.10) or put the Scala's Italian beef sandwich ($4.50) together with Irving's For Red Hot Lovers’ specialty cheddar fries, which frolic in Merkts cheese ($2.25). Veggie options include the vegetable wrap stuffed with fresh broccoli, salsa, lettuce, tomato, and onions ($4.85) and the baked potato piled high with broccoli and cheese ($3.95). Finish your decadent meal with a milkshake in strawberry, chocolate, or Tab flavors ($2.10).
The licensed aestheticians, therapists, and wellness practitioners at NuVie Skin Care and Wellness Center—French for “new life”—help clients bring “new life” to their skin and bodies with beauty and wellness treatments. Facial services cleanse pores and exfoliate skin to treat specific problems including dull, red, purple-polka-dotted, or aging skin. Nufree hair removal smoothens skin by eradicating coarse, unwanted hair without wax. NuVie also stocks a variety of gentle, natural, and organic skincare products from PCA, Bioelements, and Alteya Organics, respectively, so that clients can continue their beauty regimens in their homes or offices.
The center also improves clients’ beauty from the inside out with stress and life coaching, nutrition and fitness coaching, and acupuncture sessions that treat inflammation and chronic pain while balancing bodily systems. Massage therapy helps clients relax while improving their circulation and joint mobility through direct pressure, stretching strokes, and soft-tissue manipulation.
