Top restaurants

Restaurant
“Street food gets an ultra-hip setting — graffiti-ed walls, neon lights, and bright colors — at Orale, where locals go for Mexican food and a raucous scene. There are plenty of easygoing tacos and guacamole to pair with a myriad of margaritas, and a very lively bar scene. It all adds up to make this an especially great place for groups.”

American Restaurant
“Charleston was the inspiration for this light and bright — and very on-trend — restaurant and bar. There are obviously Southern dishes like deviled eggs and sweet corn fritters on the menu, but there’s also a firmly updated take, such as with the vegan coconut Carolina rice. Owner Mat Kopec (White Star Bar) recruited One if by Land, Two if by Sea chef John Mecca to help execute what is admittedly a concept inspired by “the theater of a Keith McNally restaurant” and “Danny Meyer hospitality.””
