The Pearl is a neighborhood currently in flux, with a seemingly endless stream of high-rise condos emerging every day, dwarfing the repurposed brick warehouses that attracted some of the longterm locals. In the shadows of these tall buildings lie a host of restaurants and bars, churning out everything from al dente pastas to the flakiest of French croissants. And while the neighborhood isn’t the city’s most culturally diverse, the restaurants found in the Pearl echo the architectural blueprint of this changing neighborhood: solid standbys that have managed to hang on for over a decade, along with a healthy dose of buzzy new hotspots.
It’s almost impossible to fit all the worthwhile restaurants and bars of such a thriving neighborhood into one map, but this collection of 18 spots capture the highlights among both the veterans and the rookies. For more neighborhood-specific maps, this collection can help. Per usual, this map isn’t ranked; it’s organized geographically.
