I prefer the express version when it does express stops in Manhattan. That thing is like a unicorn when it pops up!

Midoma is part salon part gallery/trunk show display, and it's a very low key artsy vibe throughout the whole place. My first time booking, I called after 5 and although there was an art show taking place in the space, the receptionist took the time to book me in for later that week. She (and the latest one) have both been quick to respond to emails (so handy you can book by email!) and phone calls. You can also book on Lifebooker. Having been the victim of a high maintenance haircut (twice in a row now!) I've been seeking out places to get blow outs for when I need to look presentable. Twice I saw a lovely Finnish gal [it looks like she recently moved on] who did a great job with a very natural blow out but with a nice amount of body. I'm not too into putting product in my hair, but one of the times I let her hairspray it and the style kept nicely. The third time I went, Morgan was very pleasant and he gave me a natural looking blow out, but it had less body than I'd requested and a little too much serum, so it ended up looking greasy by the end of the night. I think if I'd been more adamant about no product the style would have kept better. They both did a wonderful thorough wash, scalp massage and the products they use are natural and smell wonderful. Overall, A-Ok. Really nice staff, good (if not great) blow outs. Would be 4 stars but the gal I liked left. :/

Simple, no frills massage place up in an office building, offering thai, swedish and couples massages. No showers or locker room, but a bathroom in the one space; the couples massage room is down the hall, and you have to leave to get there. A note on cleanliness: the table coverings were all polyester sheets over the body, the table seemed to have cotton sheets covered in a disposable fibrey sheet, same with the place where you put your face. this tells me they only change that fibrey thing in between each client. you are also expected to put your face into a hairnet shaped covering of the face pillow section of the table. I opted to remove it and replace with a few tissues between my face and the leather, so I didn't feel like I was suffocating. The massage itself was ok. I opted for Swedish, and I was happy it was a thai place, since I expected to have decent pressure. It was just average, even after I expressed this to her, but it wasn't bad. Worth the $40 price, not the retail of ~$150. The place seems to take a lot of deals/coupons/etc and I think that's the way to go, since retail prices are a bit absurd for what you get.

Super chill bar that made me feel like I was in Brooklyn, even though I'd just stepped out of Chinatown. Big wooden bar and scattered small tables and picnic tables set the scene under lemony lighting. I like a bar that has a solid couple wines by the glass. And we tucked back a few glasses of Grüner Veltliner. Very chill after work vibe. I'll be back.

The place is roomy and cozy, with tons of orange booths/tables, and I'd summarize this as the Olive Garden of mac and cheese. it's completely affordable, doable, but less than great quality mac ingredients. There are some very interesting suggested mac and cheeses -- Masala?? -- and you can make your own. Served up in your own little skillet.

I'm a bit obsessed with the cardamom almond brod things with the Swedish name. I have to say, they're the perfect complement to the coffee, which is solid. A bunch of wooden tables, at least half of which are usually taken up by laptoppers. A selection of baked goods and coffee, served up by sleepy baristas.

If you are craving a meaty, homey, warm your belly glass (or 4!) of wine, with perfect company, in a cozy little Italian joint with handwritten menus, stop by Frank. If you want the most buttery, melt in your mouth burrata, plopped in a hugenormous serving on fresh tomatoes and sweet balsamic vinegar, swing by Frank. If, you are going to leave your phone in another bar and panic, do be in Frank, where the most charming and genuine bartender I've met in a while (Christian), will toss you his iPhone and let you Find Yours. If you think I'm looking forward to something, it'd be returning to Frank. (cash only)
