Food Scene
The views from this funky penthouse perch are truly stunning - get a seat outside or facing east to capture all of downtown as the sun goes down. The entrance is located in the parking garage of an office building where you will find friendly hostesses ready to escort you up the elevator to this hidden gem - Mediterranean Tapas from local Chef-Celebrity Justin Cucci! Dinner can be a little pricey so try Happy Hour for some small plates and outstanding cocktails. If you go for dinner, reserve a Seafood Platter (VERY limited number available because everything is so fresh and we are, hmmm, not exactly seaside) - the perfect way to start your journey!

Fashioned after the traditional speakeasy, you enter a small "bookstore" to find a hidden door in the bookshelf! Inside, it is dark and cozy with bookshelves everywhere, keeping with the fun and unique theme. Quiet tables allow you to socialize with your party while your serve (and even the bartenders) will know your name by the end of the night - the service might only be outdone by the incredible cocktails coming across the bar - true genius!

Located in a historic mortuary building, the iconic "Olinger Mortuaries" sign has been a fixture of the Highlands skyline for decades. After converting the building to a hip open industrial loft-style restaurant space, Linger has kept the sign and embraced their history (think toe tags and gurneys) while still churning out amazing sharable plates and delicious cocktails. Get a spot on the patio (under the sign) for brunch!

A unique concept, my friends and I refer to Avanti as the "adult cafeteria." At any time, there are 8-10 different "restaurants" working out of shipping containers and you can select any number of delicious items from the all-local chef creations. With 2 huge bars and outdoor seating galore, this is truly a place where there is something for everyone! Most of the restaurants and the bar offer great discounts during HAPPY HOUR!

Serving up homemade ice cream, sorbet and other tasty treats from their Iconic Milk Can, Little Man is a neighborhood gem and a must see for anyone with a sweet tooth. Be prepared to stand in a LONG line, especially on weekends and warm weather days. On busier nights, they usually have a small cart off to the side which has a limited selection of flavors but no wait so check it out if the line looks intimidating.
