Nudo

September 3, 2014 by Leave a comment

The uniqueness provided by one of downtown’s newest restaurant additions, Nudo, is unique and catchy. Although, the manga/pop art fusion that adorns the wall is so “in the now” modern, it makes one wonder when they will have to remodel just to avoid looking dated. Like ‘Union of the ...

September 2, 2014 by Leave a comment

When first entering Bistango I thought, "This is my kinds of place".  Definitely a classier vibe than almost anywhere downtown, smaller, intimate, and a quality upscale 'lounge' feel--my favorite style of drinkery.  I have no problem paying a little more either -which you will at Bistango-, it keeps the riff ...

It's hard to complain about a place that has 50 rotating handles of craft beer. In addition to the obvious standout feature of the beers, The Manito Tap House has a concise, delicious menu with a mouth watering variety of cuisine selections. From one of the best burgers in ...
