Best Eats Street 

West 25th Street (between Jay and Lorain)

Anchored by the venerable West Side Market, this short stretch of pavement (including the tiny stub of Market Street) is home to a remarkable collection of worthwhile eateries. The ethnic options include Greek (OPA!), Irish (The Old Angle), Middle Eastern (Kan Zaman and Nates Deli), and Puerto Rican (Lelolai and Lozadas). Stylistically, you'll find everything from a carryout soup shop (the Souper Market, just around the corner on Lorain) to Chef Karen Small's elegantly contemporary salon (The Flying Fig). For wine and apps, check out the Market Avenue Wine Bar; if award-winning beer and above-average pub grub is more your thing, stop at the historic Great Lakes Brewing Company; and for snacks, sandwiches, and gourmet coffees, grab the laptop and head to Wi-Fi-friendly Talkies. Food courts, eat your heart out.
