Years after first discovering downtown, I just stumbled across St. Vincent Court, a rather charming alley (yes, a downtown alley with charm can exist!) in an otherwise a fairly drab area. The palette of the buildings make this well-hid spot eyecatching. It is located off Broadway and Hill streets and with main entry by way of 6th. Entering here is as if you were going to a quaint, part of the Mediterrean village with a decidedly middle eastern influence atmosphere. Perhaps, you'd feel as if you were in Turkey.

Here, is where the regulars are- particularly vendors from the jewelry center of the court's namesake. Many are of Armenian or Persian decent which reflects the food options here at the enchanting eateries, including the popular deli named after the jewelry center. Choose from kebobs, lamb gyros or hummus on the menus. Even if you want coffee, you can try an Armenian variety. There is a Frenchy cafe for your croissant fix and as well a decent pizzeria.

Look out for the pigeons here that try to get any crumb you may leave.
