Away from the hustle and bustle of the district’s other shopping streets, Emerald Hill offers a calmer, more relaxed dining and retail experience. Located in this conservation area you'll find several wine bars as well as stalls serving local snacks, traditional finger foods, and restaurants serving international foods such as tapas.
