Food Scene

Modernist takes on Filipino cuisine. Hottest restaurant in town right now. #2 on Bon Appetit's Top 10 New Restaurants in the US, on Zagat's Top 10 Hottest Restaurant in the World for 2016. Also, not outlandishly expensive. Worth the long lines.

Love this family-owned restaurant. I know we can get better Cuban food in South Florida, but this one is a nice 10 minute walk from the house. Hearty and flavorful food. I love their Ropa Vieja!

The ORIGINAL "Call Your Mother." It's a quick walk around the block. Some of the best bagels in the city. Start your day with their bagel sandwiches. Their lunch sandwiches are delightful. The chocolate babka muffin is life changing. Order online ahead as this popular place gets a waiting line. (Serves breakfast and lunch).

Drinks & Nightlife

A long-standing favorite. A dive bar that's been around for as long as I can remember. Have happy hour pints on the outdoor patio, stay to dance the rest of the weekend away inside.
