Food Scene
Food is prepared fresh and the wings are large. They have flavors that aren't on the menu (ask them for ideas). It's casual, but family owned. The best wings on the planet (My husband likes Asian bourbon (sauce), I love Parmesan Garlic and "Slap Your Mama" dry rubs. Parking is a bit hard - but it's worth it.

Really good Caribbean and Ethiopian food. Great full service bar. The food is prepared by an executive chef who used to work at a local boutique hotel and is presented similar to gourmet plates at higher end restaurants. It's a bit tucked into what looks like a little used shopping center (in the corner of the "L") But it's worth it. One of my new favorite places.

Great place for breakfast. Navigate by GPS because it's on Main Street which "jogs" to the right south of Country Club Plaza. Really large portions, also lots of gluten free options. Everything is fresh. The coffee and lattes are divine. Has a bar. A neighborhood hang out in the Brookside area (near Visitation Parish). There's a pizza place next door we like too.

This replaced the previous Thai restaurant. The food is wonderful and authentic. I'm partial to their herbed fried rice. Not sure what's in it but it's addictive. I also like that they put their peanuts on the side when making Pad Thai so you can skip it if you don't want the texture.

(Temporarily closed due to pandemic) - We stumbled on this place by accident. Owner is from London and the inside is very much like an English pub. The food is amazing and affordable. He even created a pulled pork stuffed pancakes (my husband's favorite). My favorite is any one of their eggs benedict. Worth the short drive.

We begged, they built. It's in the Ward Parkway shopping center. The only one in town that we know of. About 5 miles or so down Ward Parkway (south of Country Club Plaza shopping district).

This is a small community grocery store that is not comprehensive but it's not congested and you get get things quickly (plus a few quirky things like Harry Potter butter beer). And they have the BEST hand made smoothies and burgers (think under $9 handmade burgers) at a small kitchen inside.

Wonderful history and exhibits of the Negro Leagues Baseball League. And a wonderful surprise to discover that two women played on the teams.

It's a hidden gem. So much going on I can't describe it all. And if you bring children, there are a ton of miniature houses with a mouse hidden in each one.
