Re: “47 Scott

This is one of the places we think of when introducing friends to downtown dining. Casual but hip, well-prepared dishes, and a friendly staff. Favs are the mac & cheese, and steak frites.

Re: “The Cup Café

Had my daughter's birthday celebration at the Cup in April and as usual, we loved it! Great food, relaxed service and that great "downtown" experience!

Re: “Something Sweet Dessert Lounge

Their desserts are amazing, and their specials will sometimes blow your mind. Their staff has always been very friendly every time I've gone in. To accentuate the laid-back atmosphere, they have games you can play, or you can bring your own. They also have a great selection of hot teas, along with the standard milk selection. Sometimes you have to wait a while to get a table, and sometimes it takes a little bit to get your stuff, but that's because they're always busy with people who know just how amazing they are.

Re: “Uptown Bistro

This place is fun and I really wish more people knew about it and gave it a try. It opened in May 2010 but it isn't really promoted anywhere but Facebook and is tucked inside the Pioneer Building where Monkey Box used to be, by Ike's. However, it has great hours--one of the only places downtown (if not the only one) that's open early for breakfast and late for dinner 7 days a week-- and has a fair number of regulars. The printed menu is limited, with a number of seafood dishes (I say the fish tacos are the best in town), a kobe burger, a few salads, and the like, but I've seen the kitchen staff accommodate a number of special requests, including vegetarian and vegan. The ambiance is very pleasant, with gallery space on the walls, not-too-loud music, a full bar, and a little patio outside. The drawbacks are mostly logistical in that the space is not very big, but at least it's laid out pretty well so it doesn't feel cramped. You also have to get a key and go down a hallway to get to the bathroom, which is kind of annoying, but the well-lit building is mostly used for professional offices, there's a security guard, and the bathrooms are clean. There's only one TV and it's usually on mute--a welcome change from most places in town, for a lot of us--but they do show the big games (like UA sports, World Cup, etc.) and, again, all you have to do is ask if there's something you want to catch. There's been some staff turnover but the steadies are friendly yet professional, and it seems to draw mostly a mellow-but-not-uptight crowd during the day. Weekend nights will sometimes have djs spinning house music until the morning, and there's live jazz every Friday.

Re: “The B Line

Eaten here twice. Rundown:

+s
*Nicely rounded beer selection
*Relaxed yet refined atmosphere
*Med-Lg sized portions
*Balanced flavors in all dishes had (fish burrito, salmon salad w/pasta)

-s
*Need to stay open later (suggestion: hire a manager to keep it open later during school to bring in some financial aid :) )
*Deserts, though visually appealing were ho-hum
