South Street West - or whatever you want to call the stretch of South west of Broad Street - seems to be the next "it" neighborhood.
You have a newly renovated Jamaican Jerk Hut, The Quick Fixx, the Baja Room, Sawatdee, Govinda's (the quick-serve, anyway), Jet Wine Bar, Pumpkin, La.Va, Tenstone, etc.
June should see Magpie Artisan Pie Bakery & Boutique, a vintage/modern 20-seater (plus 8 at the counter) at 1622 South. The Cambridge, a bar from Hawthornes Cafe's crew, is due to replace the Tritone at 1508 South this spring. You have the city's second Honey's Sit N Eat coming to 21st and South. I know of two other projects - now under wraps.
Next up - perhaps this weekend - will be Rex 1516 (1516 South St., 267-319-1366), whose husband-and-wife owners (Evan Malone and Jill Weber) own Jet Wine Bar across the street at 1525 South.
