    I highly recommend the burger at Oyster House. There’s a new “best” in town…

    Really looking forward to LOS opening in the spring!

    FYI – the neighborhood is Newbold, one word. Just as it appears on the bottle of beer by the same name. It’s actually a family name for which this section of S. Hicks St. was formerly named. “Newbold St” can still be seen chiseled into the cornerstones on the 2nd floors of a few buildings around the 1800 and 1900 blocks.
