You'd think that a huge reason for moving to this area is being able to walk to a decent restaurant, but I guess not.
I went to the Farmer's Market once for dinner on a Friday evening and while it wasn't dead, it wasn't nearly as lively as it normally is. This didn't really surprise me, as it seems like this area is more of a destination for people to commute to during the day (especially when the weather is nice).
You bring up a good point though. Long term this area will have to do more to attract more people at all times of day, rather than just mornings and afternoons. I'm sure as the East Quarter develops, you'll have more people in the area and more things to do nearby.
