Topping the list is bar, Mexican and breakfast and brunch spot Clavel. Located at 225 W. 23rd St., it's the highest-rated business in the neighborhood, boasting 4.5 stars out of 692 reviews on Yelp. 

Yelper Jason F. wrote, "The tacos were so good. We ordered the Carne Asada and the pork. My daughter had the chicken burrito and did not want to share it with anyone. The salads were also yummy."

Yelper Steph C. added, "Decadent and flavorful, and whatever they put in those frijoles really hit the spot. I also enjoyed the chicharrones, crunchy pork rinds with guacamole. The aguachile Rojo was a solid ceviche of wild Pacific shrimp and striped bass, cured in lime with chile guajillo, chiltepin, cucumber and topopos."

2. WC Harlan


Next up is speakeasy WC Harlan, situated at 400 W. 23rd St. With 4.5 stars out of 179 reviews on Yelp, it's proven to be a local favorite. Stop in for a cool cocktail.

Yelper Samantha C. noted, "The vibe of the antique bar is super chill. It's perfect for a date, and the drinks are amazing."

Yelper LaToya E. wrote, "I tried a couple of drinks and everything was great. I normally hate gin, but the gin and tonic was delicious, and the daiquiri was fragrant in a good way that I didn't expect. The bartender was also pretty great; she was able to describe the drinks in great detail and point us in the right direction when unsure."

3. Creole Soul Restaurant

Cajun/Creole and Southern spot Creole Soul Restaurant, which offers soul food and more, is another top choice. Yelpers give the business, located at 301 W. 29th St., 4.5 stars out of 25 reviews.

Yelper Jordan L. added, "We ordered the shrimp po'boys with fries, and they were absolutely delicious! Not only was the food good, but the customer service was A1; they even took the time to explain the menu to us."

4. Old Market Barbers

Yelper Sergio E. wrote, "They're great! Super friendly staff, free beer every now and then, awesome with kids and a welcoming part of the neighborhood. And, most importantly, they know how to cut hair."
