Are both or both are

Which sentence of these two is more correct? 

 

1- There are two restaurants by the park and they are both very good.

 

2- There are two restaurants by the park and they both are very good.

 

Let me know which one is right. If they both are correct, let me know if there is a difference in meaning. 

 

As usual, I really appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

They are both grammatically correct.  Personally, I prefer:

3: There are two very good restaurants by the park.

Note that in (2), "they" can be omitted:

2a: There are two restaurants by the park and both are very good.

You can't do that with (1).
