Pan-Asian at Lyn-Lake

Zen Fusion, a contemporary Pan-Asian restaurant, celebrated its grand opening March 8, at its location at 3016 Lyndale Avenue.

The restaurant, which is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week, features traditional Asian cuisine with contemporary presentation, said Andy Kor, owner of Zen Fusion.  Kor said his lunch prices average about $7.95, and dinner entrées are roughly $10 a person.

On top of traditional favorites like fried rice and lo mein, Kor said the restaurant also offers appetizers, soups and salads.

He added that Zen Fusion would be getting a beer and wine license in April.

The theme of the restaurant is “contemporary romantic,” and Kor said he’s aiming for a comfortable, moderately priced restaurant.  

“The menu is small but everything is good,” Kor said. “We feature traditional Asian dishes for moderate prices and a comfortable, romantic atmosphere.”

Kor also added that on Friday nights the restaurant features live classical guitar musicians.

The restaurant is open from 11 a.m.–9 p.m. Sunday–Thursday and 11 a.m.–10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Hidden corner of goodness

Shona MacKenzie moved her chiropractic business, Hidden Health, out of the Armatage neighborhood five years ago, but missed the neighborhood so much that she decided to return.

She recently closed shop at her Diamond Lake Road and Nicollet Avenue spot and moved into a new space at 3018 W. 56th Street. By pure coincidence, her business is right next to salon Hidden Shears.

“I guess we’re just the hidden corner of goodness,” MacKenzie said.

She runs Hidden Health solo, treating patients of all ages. Aside from chiropractic care, MacKenzie offers custom orthotics, allergy elimination treatments and nutritional supplements.

Hours are 3 p.m.–6 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Thursday and 9 a.m.–11:30 a.m. Friday and Saturday. For more information, visit www.hiddenhealthchiro.com or call 925-1649.

Possibilitease for your hair and skin

As the name implies, the business caters to both men and women. Hair services include cutting, styling, curling, relaxing, conditioning and extensions. As for skin care, the spa does facials, eyelash and eyebrow treatment and waxing.

Possibilitease can be reached at 825-3273 or 825-1971.

Losing weight with your brain

Having trouble losing weight with traditional diets and exercise?

You might want to give Dazzling Neuron Activity in Uptown a try. Erin Rafael, a DNA resilience consultant there, said the business uses brain research to disengage emotional triggers that drive people’s eating habits.

“Think of the bully that was bugging you all through high school and you wanted to eat some Twinkies or something,” she said. “You take away the energy that’s connected with those triggers.”

Rafael said Dazzling Neuron Activity can give the brain specific instructions to keep clients away from unhealthy food, even making them crave greens.

“If you can give the brain specific instructions, it usually can run with it,” she said.

Dazzling Neuron Activity opened quietly last summer and recently started marketing its services, Rafael said. It is located at 1516 W. Lake St., suite 202 and is open each day of the week, usually from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. For more information, call 824-1230.

His grandma’s sauce

Mark Riehle’s grandmother’s special sauce recipe was the inspiration for his venture, Sauce, planned to open this summer at Lyndale Avenue and Lake Street.

The restaurant, which will take the place of restaurant La Bodega, will focus on casual-style Italian cuisine.

He said the restaurant would also have space for live music performances.
