Between Calles 66 and 54, up from Carrera Séptima, along Carrera 3 and 4, lots of little places have conquered the steep streets of this area with its original culinary offerings. Old residential houses are home to fun places. Those that have opened their doors here have a unique quality that characterizes them, all sharing the principle of supporting national industry, working by tradition.
