The Five Points streetscape will receive a well-earned makeover, to the benefit of Riverside Avondale residents.
Riverside Avondale Preservation Society has some major plans on the drawing board for a comprehensive Five Points makeover. Plans will incorporate both aesthetic and functional improvements, making it safer, more walkable, and more diverse in its eating, drinking and entertainment offerings.
The Five Points Plan was presented at the February Riverside Avondale Preservation society meeting, with the primary stakeholders, the Five Points Merchants Association, and many Riverside Avondale residents in attendance.

The Shoppes of Avondale welcomes a new luxurious selection of French pastries at Le Macaron.
In Avondale, you can savor the fine restaurants and cafes. You can taste the wine, cheese and chocolate. It may sound like a Parisian dream, but it’s reality for residents of Avondale.
The Shoppes of Avondale will soon welcome Le Macaron French Pastries. Le Macaron features a seemingly endless selection of ever so delicate, crisp-on-the-outside, decadent-on-the-inside French patisserie macarons, (and please don’t call them macaroons).
Coming in the Spring, Le Macaron offers that signature French delicacy in a myriad of flavors and fillings.

Avondale folks like it fresh -- and if you're an Avondale resident who hasn't been to Farmers Row at the Riverside Arts Market, or RAM, you're missing out. Farmers Row organizers have worked hard to deliver a selection from local producers, as they like to say, "grown with love."

The subject of Avondale restaurants is on the menu as lawmakers head to Tallahassee for the next legislative session.
Florida Representative Reggie Fullwood (Avondale) is going to bring up legislation that would enable more bars and restaurants in Avondale and Riverside to serve hard liquor. Under the current law, Avondale restaurants must have at least 200 seats to serve liquor beyond beer and wine. If Representative Fullwood’s bill is successful, restaurants as small as 100 seat capacity would be able to serve hard liquor.
