I just recently moved to downtown Hollywood and I'm trying to get situated as far as eating and shopping for food is concerned. The publix on young circle was a bit of a let down, so I'd like to find a few alternatives. If anyone can suggest places for meat, produce (farmers market or other open-air fruit/veg shopping anywhere?) and fresh seafood in the area, that would be great. Walkable is ideal, but even if I have to drive, it's no big deal.
As for restaurants, in the few days I've been here, I've had good luck with Exotic Bites, Mauro's and Goyo El Poyo. The latter had a great roast chicken. I'm eating out on a budget for the moment, so if anyone can suggest other relatively inexpensive places in the downtown Hollywood area (is that silly?) I'd appreciate it. Any good places for a con leche/medianoche?
Also, I think I saw an Italian bakery on Hollywood Blvd. Any reports on that?
I'm sure I'll have more questions as I get around more. I look forward to posting reccomendations and not just questions soon. Prior to this I posted frequently about Sarasota and Key West, and probably still will.
