Readers of Amanda Codispoti’s blog, The Storefront, probably saw that today is the start of Williamson Road restaurant week, an event being held by the Williamson Road Area Business Association to draw attention to the diverse array of food along the corridor.
Last week, I heard someone say, in reference to the event, “Well, now that Hooters is gone, what’s left on Williamson Road?” It was just a joke, but as someone who has lived off Williamson Road for nearly a decade, I know there’s more to eat there than bar burgers (not that those are bad — sometimes, bar burgers are pretty darn good!).
Everything from New York deli sandwiches to Korean bibimbap can be had in Williamson Road restaurants. Some of my favorite dishes include the California burrito at Alejandro’s, nightly specials and sinful desserts at Hollywood’s, Reuben sandwiches at the New Yorker, chicken salad at Second Helpings Cafe and the aforementioned bibimbap at Wonju Korean.
