Restaurants

Crestline contains a wealth of culinary options that defy expectations. You can find little pockets of eateries nestled together on both the southwest and the northeast ends of the neighborhood.

Shangri-La, a mainstay of the Crestline dining scene wows customers with dishes such as the sesame shrimp, a dish of tangy sauce-coated fried shrimp. At lunch, it comes served with a side of hot-and-sour or egg-drop soup and an egg roll. Shangri-La's large tables and busy atmosphere make the restaurant perfect for large groups or families.

La Paz brings the flavors and cuisine of south of the border to the American South.

La Paz's drinks menu replete with margaritas and imported beers makes the restaurant a perfect location for late dinners, open till 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.

Mafiaoza's could only improve on its authentic New York experience if it opened a subway platform beneath the dining room. While it serves a variety of standard toppings such as mushrooms, olives and peppers, guests can also enjoy more esoteric fare, like drunken goat cheese and shrimp. However, the best way to appreciate Mafiaoza's New York integrity proves to be ordering a slice of cheese. Enjoy a brew and a live band every Tuesday, and don't be surprised if you find a loose subway token on the ground.

Anyone in Crestline looking to imbibe or stay out late has a stool waiting for them at Otey's Tavern. Watch live music every Thursday through Saturday, and enjoy a cocktail any regular hour. Anyone looking for a more club-like experience can make the short drive to the Five Points South area and visit establishments such as Platinum of Birmingham and Blue Monkey Lounge.
