There are some great lunches to be had in this town, and we want to celebrate the midday meal. So, let's do lunch, shall we?

The Arts District is slowly becoming a destination for dining and drinking. While this section of Downtown is still a tad bit off the beaten path, if you've got access to wheels and have time for lunch in Downtown, the English gastropub Royal Clayton's has eats (and, shh, don't tell the boss) drinks that will keep you full until the end-of-day whistle blows.

Open inside a converted factory space since 2006, on a sunny day the atmosphere inside Royal Clayton's is light and upbeat, despite the heaviness of the decor that pays homage to British royalty over the centuries, and includes touches of the Gothic style. The menu is split between traditional British pub fare and more waistline friendly midday options like sandwiches and salads.
