"A large, crowded street with a decent variet of restaurants"
West 8th street is a rather large and crowded street that offers a decent variety of places to eat. One of these places is Blue velvet, a nicely furnished hip restaurant with great food, and decent service. Another place to go on this street is Los Molcajetes, a fun hispanic restaurant with great food and good service. Overall, west 8th street offers a decent variety of attractions, and I recommend it to this looking for a nice lunch or quick dinner.
