Uptown Area

Sushi Bay 17

Wide variety, quality presentation, and attentive service have earned this sushi locale the right to be called a destination. Enjoy happy hour fare—including oysters, sashimi, rolls, and drinks—on the outdoor patio. We suggest trying their daily special. 

Margs Taco Bistro (Uptown)

This Mexican bistro offers a casual dining experience, fresh margaritas and hand-pressed tortillas. Try the carne asada taco.

Beast & Bottle

The "farm to fork" mantra permeates a menu featuring small plates (mussels, foie gras pastrami), flatbreads, vegetables, and dinner-size plates (including duck breast and pan-roasted belly roll).

Taita Peruvian Cuisine & Bar

Experience the bright and bold flavors of Peruvian cuisine, such as the lomo saltado (a spiced filet mignon with tomatoes, peppers, and onions) or the Orgia Calient (mixed sautéed seafood served warm).

Ace Eat Serve

Josh Wolkon's restaurant slash ping-pong hall features Asian-inspired cuisine, 10 ping-pong tables, and house-made juices and sodas. Two outdoor tables and weekly tournaments make this the perfect place to eat, drink, and hang out.

Tree Haus Bistro

A traditional bistro emphasizing soups, salads, sandwiches, and tapas. Each sandwich is named after a tree such as the Aspen, a hot pastrami sandwich, or the Poplar, a roast turkey sandwich with a cranberry relish and toasted sage leaves. For dessert, try a house-made chocolate tort on the expansive front patio.  

Pinche Taqueria

Try the queso a la plancha made with griddled Cotija cheese, smashed avocado, and roasted tomatillo salsa. A chalkboard displays the extensive tequila menu, and the coin-style margaritas are the perfect accompaniment to any taco. Also try the new Highland location.

Walter's Pizzeria

Grab a slice and a pint at this pizza parlor. Order the Big Fizz if you are craving meat or the Panama Not-So-Red if you want everything but the tomato sauce.

Steuben's

With food like homemade mac and cheese and fried chicken, plus retro booths, this restaurant makes the 1950s feel right around the corner.
