Next time you're speeding down MLK Blvd. in your car or on your bike, give these businesses a brake, they're worth checking out. MLK Blvd. wasn't always divided by a median. At one point the street was much less of a thoroughfare than it is today, and many of the businesses have been around through the street's transformation.
Husband-and-wife team serve up cuisine from the NE coast, Somalia, and Ethiopia, and even some Middle Eastern favorites such as falafel.
Here you will find your basic eggs and bacon, slow dripped coffee and a few scrambles with additional ingredients like avocado or sausage. Come here when you don't want to wait elsewhere.
The name "fruit company" is deceiving. This locally owned market has sausages, wine, produce, and even a bulk section. If I lived closer, I'd be here every day.
The decor and inside of the restaurant are as fresh as the food. Pho Green makes date night intimate with cozy corners and a soft atmosphere.
If you're hungry (and drunk) enough you'll pay $10 for a Banquet dinner here. Don't miss the juke box, or the pinball and pool on the 2nd floor of this house/bar. Just don't get drunk and attempt to slide down the back stairs to the patio, the bartenders don't take shit from anyone, not even you.
This craft kitchen won't be a secret for much longer, once the NE brunching crowd finds out there's little-to-no wait for dishes like the winter vegetable hash w/ poached egg and smoked trout.
The best spot beyond the Rose Garden for viewing the game & the noise of hollering fans, with free arcade basketball to sweeten the deal.
Try Tula as a lunch spot: breads, soups, salads, and paninis and of course, come back for the sweet and savory baked goods.
