Visitors to the new Hardesty Arts Center won't have to worry about finding a bite to eat.
The Brady Arts District has 11 restaurants within easy walking distance of the center, and two more are expected to open near the first of the year.

Here is where to go:
Caz's Chowhouse, 18 E. Brady St. Casual; varied menu.
Chimera Cafe (opens late December), 212 N. Main St. Casual coffeehouse; sandwiches, wraps, beer, wine.
