Saint Philips Plaza is an upscale, urban area and shopping complex situated near luxury town homes. It is located where North Campbell Avenue and East River Road meet. The Plaza offers visitors and residents alike an array of choices with respect to fine dining and posh boutiques. Shoppers can browse in shops with lavish merchandise selections that include designer clothing, artist-crafted jewelry, and handcrafted home furnishings.
For lunch or evening dining, Acacia is an eclectic restaurant at the Plaza that provides a menu selection of varying American entrees. Patrons enjoy such dishes as pan-roasted sea bass, charbroiled veal, and leg of lamb, just to name a few of the delectable offerings. Saint Philips Plaza-area residents who patronize the restaurant can eat inside and enjoy the well-appointed decor or outside on the sycamore-shaded patio.
For anyone in the mood for Italian cuisine, then Vivace Restaurant supplies a vast range of Italian specialties. One of the most popular entrees is the veal piccata, made with veal sautéed with lemons and capers and combined with vegetable pasta. This restaurant, which places an emphasis on contemporary Italian fare, also provides diners with a lengthy list of impeccable wines.
For locals in the mood for pizza, the Pizzeria Vivace is the place to go in the neighborhood. The dough is made with the same painstaking care that Italian bakers give to the making of home-styled bread or pasta. Lunch is served daily from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., while dinner hours begin at 5 p.m. and end at 9 p.m. during the week, or 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
