WHAT I THINK: This a great place to visit on nights between Thursday and Saturday. It is full of cute little brick and mortar restaurants full of local flair,as well as a wide variety of great and savory street food. The energy is very upbeat and familial, and It’s the kind of area that one just wants to hang out in for a night.
