Stephanie’s on Newbury restaurant is as iconic as ritzy Newbury Street itself, and when namesake owner Stephanie Sokolove is not enjoying her award-winning patio and sophisticated comfort food, she goes to fellow Newbury Street business Bella Santé Spa.

Picture 19“When I think of unwinding it is all about getting pampered,” Stephanie Sokolove told citybuzz. “For that I turn to Bella Santé Spa.” Similar to Stephanie on Newbury’s numerous accolades, Bella Sante Spa is a multi award-winning spa, receiving the most ever “Best of Boston” nods for its massages, skin care, and nail salon than any other spa in Boston. It’s known for the Swedish-based Bella Santé Massage and the Bella Santé Spa Facial, which includes a double exfoliation process and mineral infused fabric mask.

“The service is exceptional, the treatments are divine,” adds Stephanie. “And there is one located on Newbury Street, right down the street from my restaurant, so sometimes I am able to sneak away for a massage after work.” That sounds like a divine day, indeed! Visit for more information.
