Restaurant Road

This will be a list of cafe's, bars, and restaurants located along Main Street in the Fan. The Fan lies just west of downtown where the city streets hit a diamond shaped park and fan out in all directions. It is a warren of narrow streets lined with row houses, apartments and small businesses and represents one of the best preserved neighborhoods in the city. Main Street is one of the few through streets not populated with stop signs, so it is the preferred way to travel west through the Fan. There are no major commercial developments and only one franchise. This leaves an interesting collections of independent bars, restaurants and cafe's. There are so many different ones that I thought it would be interesting to list them all, starting from the east and moving west.

1. Piccolo Italy
2. Roxy Café
3. China Dragon
4. Sweet Peas
5. Papa John’s
6. Puddinheads
7. Café Mandolin

There are probably as more restaurants on the side streets, sprinkled throughout the fan. Robinson Street and Broad also have concentrations of restaurants, then there's Carytown, but that's another post.

Bon Apetite!
