Downtown Jacksonville is home to over 90 eclectic restaurants, each with its own unique story. July is Culinary Arts Month, so what better way to celebrate than to do so in #DTJax? Below contains highlights of just some of the dining options the Urban Core has to offer.





Craving Southeast Asian food? Indochine is THE go-to. Dig into duck curry, Thai beef flank and some of the best noodle dishes in Downtown, including Pad Thai, Mee-Krob and Vietnamese Pho. This eatery has been Folio’s “Best Thai Restaurant” for six consecutive years, a title Indochine has rightfully earned.
