Caracas Arepa Bar: Caracas is split into two sides – the actual restaurant and Caracas To Go. What makes it confusing is that Luke’s Lobster is smack in the middle (a great option if you like lobster rolls). The restaurant is always packed, so if you don’t like to wait for your food, I’d suggest trying to grab one of the tiny tables over at Caracas To Go. (Yes, they have beer on that side.)

Bourgeois Pig: An intimate, trendy bar that serves unique beer and wine cocktails and a variety of fondues. Perfect for a date or for a girls’ night out.
