American Restaurant
“Located just down Monroe Street, I’m at The Coupe at least once a week! They do coffee and pastries to-go ($3-$5), as well as sit down breakfast ($15pp), lunch, and dinner. It’s pretty big so there isn’t usually a wait (Sometimes for brunch), and very reasonably priced. Definitely worth checking out! ”

Coffee Shop
“Relaxed coffeehouse drawing hipsters with live music, eclectic furniture, sandwiches & sweets.”

Asian Restaurant
“The future of dining probably looks something like this hybrid cafe/men’s-streetwear shop/Southeast Asian restaurant—retail-and-restaurant combos are popping up everywhere right now. Mostly, we’re here for Erik Bruner-Yang’s take on Taiwanese and Cambodian cuisines. An order of pork or leek-and-mushroom bao is a no-brainer, and spicy lamb noodles are an obvious temptation. That said, we can never say no to the fried chicken. Big enough for two or more, the extra-crispy breasts are livened with Szechuan peppercorns, pickled cabbage, and a heavy drizzle of sweet caramelized fish sauce that soaks into hunks of baguette. Moderate.”

Movie Theater
