This food hall from Prohibition owners Ahn Mai and Lian Pham represents the most significant new restaurant to arrive downtown since the OKRA-fueled bar boom began in late 2012. The four food vendors — ramen shop Samurai Noodle, barbecue joint El Burro and the Bull, Greek restaurant Myth Kafe, and beloved crepe stand Melange Creperie — offer a diverse range of high quality dining options that are sure to suit almost any group. The beverage selection offers more than 50 craft beers (a mix of local and national breweries) as well as wines on tap.

Best of all, Conservatory is open late: until 2 am on Thursday and 3 am on Friday and Saturday. Being able to get a crepe or a bowl of ramen after a night bar-hopping or attending a concert has major appeal and bodes well for its future success.
