The Low Down


Parking: There is no valet, but Lincoln can have spots. Do not, however, try and sneak a spot in the Golden Angel's lot across the street--you will be ticketed.

What to Drink: This wine list is brief, mostly American, and priced well. A $26 bottle of Independent Producers Merlot works very well with much of the menu.

When to Go: Weekends are busy, and service, which is good, might falter slightly. Weeknights are your best bet.
