Retro is a fantastic Downtown spot for lunch. This dog-friendly restaurant is very chill in the afternoon, and it’s so hidden that you probably won’t run into any coworkers there. You’ll definitely want to order the excellent burger, which you can top with anything from cheddar to teriyaki sauce alongside really crispy and tasty fries.
