“Way hip side of down town! Check out Olympic Flame they have the best Gyros in town. Unless you're more into sushi, then stop by Miyabi 9. Its my favorite sushi joint in Des Moines and 100% hands down the best around here. If your looking for a bar with a underground type of vibe make sure you stop by Black Sheep.”

“Want those "high-end dining” feels without going broke? This is the place to be. Delicious Mediterranean/Italian/Moroccan-inspired food -- small plates, appetizers, and entrees. They also known for their AMAZING unique wood-roasted pizzas (I recommend). Come during their happy hours during 3-6pm and get your pizza and beer half off – super good deal.”

Movie Theater
“Flix Brewhouse is America’s only first-run Cinema Brewery. Stop and think about that for a minute -- the best blockbuster movies, amazing on-site brewed beer and delectable hand-made food all crafted by serious movie-beer-food folks. For those who believe that movie going should be so much more than just staring at a screen, Flix Brewhouse is a game-changer.”
