The Advocate is located on the edge of a dense residential area. We encourage you to use alternate means of transportation when possible and to respect both the neighborhood and its residents. It is a beautiful walk to the restaurant from the surrounding areas and we encourage you to find parking a few blocks away to decrease circling in the immediate area around the restaurant, which is quite busy, and to lighten our impact on our closest neighbors.
