Brew­ers Row 1 It seemed like a funny fluke when two brew­eries opened on the same street, but now it’s home to four—Moody Ales, Park­side, Yel­low Dog and Twin Sails—mak­ing this stretch a sudsy des­ti­na­tion for lovers of care­fully crafted brews and cheer­ful tast­ing rooms.

Orig­i­nal’s Res­tau­rante Mex­i­cano 2 If it looks like you’re head­ing into some­one’s house, you’ve probably found Orig­i­nal’s Res­tau­rante Mex­i­cano, where locals can be trans­ported to sun­nier climes through tasty tostadas, bur­ri­tos, en­chi­ladas, ce­viche and more. You’ll also find their food truck wisely perched out­side the Park­side or Yel­low Dog brew­eries ev­ery Tues­day and Wed­nes­day.

Spacca Napoli 3 For locals it was a slice of heaven when chef Marco Cresci­ullo, co-owner Da­vide Di Gio­vanni, and broth­ers Danny and Paolo Pero—all with true Neapoli­tan roots—opened an au­then­tic, wood­fired Ital­ian pizze­ria. Cresci­ullo fo­cuses on qual­ity in­gre­di­ents, but the real se­cret is the slow-ris­ing rus­tic crust, made from a recipe handed down for gen­er­a­tions.

Rocky Point Ice Cream Now in their 21st year, Rocky Point went from a tiny sum­mer kiosk to a year-round hot spot for all sorts of frozen good­ness: milk­shakes, sun­daes, mini-ice cream cakes and bliss-pro­duc­ing dou­ble scoops, to name a few. Ninety per­cent of the in­gre­di­ents are lo­cal, and the com­mu­nity-minded own­ers sup­port a host of lo­cal causes, too.
