P.F. Chang’s China Bistro

Picked by Taryn Tacher, Web Editor

P.F. Chang’s is definitely my favorite Asian restaurant in South Florida. I recently went with my family for my birthday, and I was delighted as usual. The Mongolian beef and ginger chicken are must-try dishes, and the chicken lettuce wraps are the perfect appetizer. Also, the double pan-fried noodles are no longer on the menu, but the kitchen will still prepare them if you ask–and ask, you should!”

Yoga Nidra

Picked by Marie Speed, Group Editor

“For those of us who think a downward dog is just too much work, sign up for Julie Murphy’s Yoga Nidra class the first Sunday of every month at Simply Yoga. Some call it guided meditation, but I call this drifty place between consciousness and sleep a perfectly delicious way to erase stress.”
