When I drove by the corner of Northwest Highway and Hillcrest yesterday, I barely recognized the stores that line the intersection. Turns out, Bella Lifestyle Nail Salon & Spa has disappeared and in the past few weeks, Hillcrest Nails Spa and Massage Felax have popped up in its place. These two neighboring salons market themselves differently; Message Felax focuses only on massages, while Hillcrest Nails Spa offers manicures, pedicures, and massages.
Not far down the block lies Soleo Mexican Kitchen. This five-week-old restaurant features both traditional Tex-Mex dishes and more modern takes on the classics.
If you have tried any of these new places, please let me know what you think!
