A great place for Thai food. Closed on Tuesdays.

Don’t judge a book by its cover or a restaurant by its décor. Tram’s is one of the best Vietnamese restaurants in town. Inexpensive too!
3519 Butler St.
Tamari is a Latin-Asian fusion restaurant and a new intern favorite. It’s a good spot for happy hour on Fridays. The atmosphere is a bit upscale, but it’s a nice treat after a hard day’s work.
5847 Ellsworth Ave.
Part of the Big Burrito chain, pan-Asian cuisine, lounge-y and stylish.
229 South Highland Ave.
Another member of the Big Burrito chain. Great ambience, cute outdoor tent, yummy wine list.

Harris Grill is another intern favorite. Get there early on a Friday night. There is always a wait but worth the good drinks and food.
Bites and Brews
5750 Ellsworth Ave.
Bites and Brews is another favorite. Great beer, great pizza.
1712 Murray Ave.
Asian tapas? Why not, they are delicious. If you’re lucky, you may see some Thai dancers.

Aladdin’s menu includes falafel, shawarmas, hummus, and baba ganoush.
