I decided this block deserves its own thread. It's kind of a dreary, old-looking stretch of University, but it seems to be a hotbed for restaurants both old and new.
Most of the places on this block seem to fit a similar profile...small, quiet, not at all flashy, cheap, and serve some kind of "exotic" ethnic cuisine (Indonesian, Salvadorean, Ghanian). Yet there are a couple newcomers, Bobby G's Pizzeria and the Meridian Sports Cafe, that seem to turn that formula upside down. It's possible this may lead to some gentrification on this block...not sure what the effects would be.
Anyone have any favorites on this block? or thoughts about its future?
