Reno’s Midtown District is one of the Biggest Little City’s fastest growing areas, and with that comes lots of rad new restaurants. Located just south of downtown Reno and the Truckee River, Midtown is known for its quirky thrift stores, murals and art installations, and great food scene. Many of its restaurants have been around for several years while others are new to the scene. Do a little shopping at Junkee Clothing Exchange and then grab a bite at one of these local favorites.
Midtown is a great place to find healthy meal choices. Vegans, vegetarians and gluten-free folks consider Great Full Gardens one of the best stops for both delicious and diet-conscious options.

Whether you find yourself craving a bowl of warm soup in the colder months or something fresh and light to enjoy on the patio, Süp is a perfect spot to make it happen.
