Video: Living the American Dream on 27th Avenue: Ayestaran Restaurant

Return to story

Since its inception, 27th Avenue has existed as a tender point between hope and history. Also known as 'Unity Blvd,' the street was meant to represent togetherness. Drive it today, and you will see 17.5 miles of fragmented neighborhoods functioning by themselvesŠ some proud, some struggling -- each considering Unity Boulevard central to their individual identity.

These three videos represent some of the culinary diversity of Unity Blvd. From an old school Soul food restaurant in Carol City to a true Bahamian Conch House in the central area to a traditional Cuban restaurant near Calle Ocho, the changes in neighborhoods are represented in the uniqueness of the community's appetite.
