Ah, Backstreet Cafe, you’ve captured both our hearts and appetites with that picturesque patio, compelling lunchtime eats, and upscale (but never uptight) atmosphere. There’s always a steady crowd at this 1930s-era bistro, and with a menu this extensive and delicious, you’ll be running, not walking, to join the masses before all the tables are filled. Once settled, ease into the afternoon by dipping some French bread into their cheesy, rich Oxtail Soup or knocking back a couple Gulf Oysters before digging into some choice Salmon Tacos, chef Hugo Ortega’s Chihuahua cheese-layered Burger, and Chicken Enchiladas swimming in corn pudding and cream. Finish up with a slice of their warm, caramel-drizzled Apple Crostata, and be sure to make a second trip during happy hour (which runs from 3 to 6:30 pm, Tuesdays through Fridays), because those masterful cocktails will definitely make your evening.

Backstreet offers holiday catering, as well.
