How to Explore Inman Park Edges While Getting a Hairdo Pt. 2 of 2 The Wisteria Block


When I'm lucky, I get to take JoAnn to the salon. While she gets her "do" done, I explore.
 
I was a bit anxious about leaving JoAnn hanging, and didn't realize my phone was on mute. So I decided to chance it and do Part 2. It was about 4:45.

Part 2: The four restaurants at the corner of  North Highland Avenue at Colquitt: Folk Art, Il Localino, North Highland Pub, and Wisteria. The Wisteria block. (See Part 1: How to Explore Inman Park Edges While Getting a Hairdo Pt. 1 of 2 Fallen Arrows and The Dickey)



In order: Wisteria, North Highland Pub, Il Localino, Folk Art. Unless you are on foot, this is the way we see them. I'd never even walked the sidewalk, time for the Architecture Tourist to spring into action.



Why would you put four restaurants in two attached buildings? It was a mystery from my smallish town youth. Then I discovered food courts.

Folk Art is on the corner of Colquitt, has this nice sign with breakfast all day and lunch and dinner.

Folk Art is a squarish space divided into comfortable niches with a view. Lots of ways to sit. It even has some counter seats right behind me.

Cute. I want to eat there, every day.

Then Il Localino. Honestly I didn't even know it was there. It's a narrow front, can't see into the windows. It had just opened for dinner.

Good grief, it's a total red-themed, white table-clothed, attentive-waiters-in-black, Italian restaurant with three (3) dining rooms. This picture is the main dining room looking from the bar toward the front door.

Cute. I want to eat here every day too.

North Highland Pub is an 11am to 3am joint. There are always folks in there when I drive by.

It's deeper than it is wide with tall metal tiled ceiling, brick floor with plenty of standing and elbow room.

Here's the giant Loews Grand Gone With the Wind Premier mural.

Cute, I'll have a beer and bar food every day.

Wisteria is the northern most.

It's what's for dinner.

Communal inline tables, breathing room.

I'd like to sit in this window, watch folks on the sidewalk, see everybody that enters and leaves.

Wow, an un-tagged wall.

Now you know.

Thanks for joining me. Let's eat.
