South Street may be one of the most flavorful neighborhoods in our city. The food culture reflects the nearby neighborhoods. The streets are lined with restaurants with ethnic flavors, live music, and an artsy atmosphere.

Now, let’s talk about some of the best South Street Restaurants. One of our personal favorite dinner spots is Serpico- 604 South Street. The James Beard award winning chef Peter Serpico does not disappoint.  Serving contemporary American cuisine with Asian influences, the menu changes seasonally and is always rich with flavor and flair. IC Insider tip: try Korean Fried Chicken wings! The chili paste on the wings makes this dish highly memorable. The rawdiver scallops are also highly recommended. One thing to note is that is it only open for dinner. Also, be sure to make reservations!

Next on our list of favorites is Bridget Foys- 623 South 6th Street. We love this spot for brunch. The eggs benedict is always a great choice. If you like French toast, definitely try the pumpkin French toast. In the summer, it’s a great spot to people watch from the outdoor seating.

We can’t talk about the best South Street restaurants without mentioning Bistrot La Minette. This authentic French bistro has a welcome atmosphere and an authentic menu. Make sure you save room for dessert. You have to try Chocolate Mousse and Puff Pastry!

If you’re a fan of Mexican food, stop by Bugambilias- 148 South St. Chef and owner Carols Molina prides himself for serving authentic traditional Mexican food. The margaritas are delicious and made from freshly squeezed lime juice.

To finish our list of best South Street Restaurants, we have to mention Bainbridge Barrel House- 625-627 South 6th Street. This gastropub offers an eclectic, tasty menu.  They also have an impressive beer selection with 25 beers on tap.

We hope you get to wine and dine on South Street soon!

Cheers!
