Men, women, and children alike sit back in comfy salon chairs at Alex's Unisex Hair Salon & Barber as stylists tend to each customer's hair needs. Haircuts remove dead weight and split ends at the tips of strands, and highlights add pops of color to refreshed styles. The stylists also calm frizz using keratin straightening treatments, trim beards, and twists locks into chic updos for the annual pretzel-festival ball.
Viru Restaurant demonstrates its authentic Peruvian roots with a wide variety of traditional dishes. Causa rellena de camarones satisfies bellies with shrimp, as long as those bellies like their shrimp hiding inside chilled mashed potatoes that are spiced up with lime and yellow chili ($12). The parihuela, a soupy sea of seafood cooked with white wine, spices, and panca chili, moisturizes parched stomachs with a torrential downpour of flavor ($24). Representing the eternal battle between land and sea, the bisteck a la chorrillana—a grilled New York steak with a sauce made of panca chili, onions, and tomatoes ($24)—wields haricots verts clubs against the pescado sudado, the fish of the day poached in seafood broth and herbs ($19). Placing a comforting cap on dinner, flan reminds diners of former days when sweet, creamy desserts grew everywhere all the time and only cost a nickel ($6). In addition to edibles, Viru Restaurant nourishes guests at the bar, which stocks its shelves with an impressive supply of domestic and imported beers, sangria, wines, and chicha, a drink made of fermented maize.
At Simply Skin Laser Medispa, licensed medical aesthetician Sabrina J. Kharouba and Dr. Tamir Kharouba rely on lasers and private-label products to reintroduce clients to their younger, smoother selves. Prior to any facials or nonablative-laser treatments, Sabrina consults with clients to talk about their beauty goals. She then customizes a treatment directed toward a range of skin conditions, such as acne, unwanted hair, or wrinkles. A range of private-label Simply Skin products blend vitamins and antioxidants with green tea, white tea, and soy extracts. On-premise physician Tamir oversees treatments, allowing him to monitor procedures for safety and episodes of M_A_S*H for things a doctor would never say.

Mr. Carmine got his first taste of haircare at the age of 11. His father was the local barber in his hometown of Avellino, Italy, and young Carmine helped his father trim their neighbors' hair. Mr. Carmine dedicated himself to haircare and, after moving to New York in 1958, began studying hair thinning and hair loss. He has devised a system of solutions for both men and women to combat hair loss and receding hairlines. In addition to focusing on hair loss, Mr. Carmine and his team of experts also offer a full-service salon.
