The best way to describe Barrio Bellavista is that it’s really the red headed stepchild of Barrio Lastarria. Barrio Bellavista boasts a lot of street food mixed in with a lot of inexpensive restaurants, whereas in Lastarria, it’s mostly upscale fine dining. The best thing about Barrio Bellavista is that it’s very artsy and always crowded with people, just like Barrio Lastarria.
