I'll add 300 East, located, conveniently, at 300 East Blvd. also just south of Uptown. Actually there are lot of great lunch places along East Blvd. but I really enjoy this place for lunch. Unfortunately, I think Pewter Rose's quality has gone downhill.

That location is near Uptown (as our downtown is called). Dandelion Market and Harvest Moon Grille are both good options there. Just south of Uptown, in the Southend neighborhood, are Greek Isles and Pewter Rose. Not much further away is the Plaza-Midwood area (Central Avenue) with LuLu, Soul Gastrolounge and Bistro La Bon being good bets.
