Around Silver Lake

The housing of Silver Lake is best described as eclectic in style. Homes from the 1920s share secluded streets with modern high-concept developments. With high elevations reminiscent of San Francisco, the area around Bellevue Park offers an opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The area surrounding Silver Lake Reservoir is a bit more expensive but worth the price because of its scenic views of the man-made lake.

Silver Lake offers tastes as varied as its residents. Head down Silver Lake Boulevard for fresh oysters delivered daily and clam chowder in a classic cozy setting. Authentic Japanese ramen can be found on Sunset Boulevard for a taste of the east, while more conventional fare includes boutique coffee houses and eateries.

For dinner, a number of restaurants can be found along Silver Lake Boulevard that offer authentic Mexican food as well as one of the best Italian eateries in town.

Nice neighbordhood

Silverlake is a good neighborhood to go to restaurants in or take a nice walk through. Silverlake's major downsides are its lack of grocery stores (central Silverlake only has a "") and its expensive cost of living. Living on the north side of Silverlake is nearby a Trader Joe's, though.
