Today’s A Day With GG is taking us to none other than Mt. Kisco! Hop on board!
SpaChiara Wellness Center: Our first stop is SpaChiara, the perfect location for any and all of your cosmetic needs. As “Westchester’s premier medical spa for plastic surgery”, and created by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sharon C. DeChiara, the spa and wellness center will open you up to an entirely new world of “anti-aging, health, wellness, and aesthetics”. Basically, this place is the answer to all of your beauty-related and pampering prayers. As for their offerings, they practice everything from Botox to Ultherapy, Cool Sculpt to Restalyne, Juvederm to Sculptra, and MiraDry to CellFina along with many other treatments that can target your “problem areas” and provide you with the perfect medical solution. As Dr. DeChiara specializes in facial cosmetic surgery, body contouring, mini face-lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and more, she strives to bring the best to each individual patient and cater to their unique bodily needs. And while some of these procedures might not be the most physiclly comfortable, SpaChiara makes up for it in location, as it is tucked away in the charming Mt. Kisco hills, and also with her signature “gentle and caring manner”. Seriously, this place is awesome!
Café of Love: As us GGs are always in need of a little nosh on our journeys, Café of Love is our favorite in the Mt. Kisco area. They describe their cuisine as “Local New American” with a seasonal spin that “takes farm-to-table ingredients on a global adventure”. Café of Love has the most authentic sourced food you can find, and from our own personal experience, you can even taste the love, dedication, and warmth each dish thanks to owner Leslie Lampert’s overwhelming passion for her craft. She originally opened Ladle of Love, an award-winning soup shop that received praise and recognition across the county. The New York Times even stated that the café is “an engaging little restaurant…with an appealing blend of rusticity and sophistication, contemporary without being modern.” Offering lunch, brunch, and dinner, their menus will make your mouth water within seconds. Some options include seafood crepe cone, chili-spiced steak taco, spring vegetable stew, vegan Buddha bowl, stinging nettles pasta rags & rabbit ragout, signature farmhouse salad, and so much more. From us to you: the chickpeas are a MUST!
