Treat to Try: Cream & Sugar

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Cream & Sugar

Cream & Sugar is the sort of place any neighborhood would kill to have. It’s a little stop you can hit with friends or family for a quick, affordable treat. You can score hand-packed and soft serve ice creams, sundaes, shakes — and Coney dogs for good measure. Prices start around $3, but you can […]

Restaurant Review: Tio’s Tacos and Tequila

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Tio’s Tacos and Tequila

Tio’s Tacos and Tequila opened up in De Novo’s original High Street digs. The debut typically inspires the following response from seasoned Downtown diners: “Weird. That’s right across from Condado.” Right, Condado is pretty much the local go-to for tacos: competing in the same zone seems suicidal. But outside of the fact that both operations […]

Mr. Hummus Grill has a moniker that suggests a super-casual operation. The serving team leans toward branded t-shirts, which bolsters that impression.

Restaurant Review: Westies in Clintonville

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Westies in Clintonville

Westies set up shop in Wine Bistro’s old digs in Clintonville. Gone is all the wine-centric decor, although surely Westies’ attractive bar could count as “decor,” and the place still serves a range of beer, wine and cocktails. The dining space now boasts super cool, long booths you can enter from either side. The booths […]
