Yes, Lincoln serves brunch on both Saturday and Sunday, but what makes this place special is that it offers some manner of brunch every day of the week. Monday through Thursday, satisfy your hankering with the smoked salmon Benedict or the fruity pebble pancakes. The Brunch Test Kitchen from 10 am to 3 pm on Fridays is where chefs experiment with a new brunch menu every week and then offer up a few favorites over the next two days. Past winners have included Nutella s’mores pancakes, wake and bake tater tots, and the insane Cinnamon Toast Crunch boozy milkshake. Brunch on your lunch hour? All the kids are doing it.

Man, do people love these wood-fired pizzas. Like, love love. It might be the leopard-print crusts, or the generosity of the toppings. But most likely it's owed to chef Nick Dixon’s unusual expertise—he consulted with a “pizza guru,” splurged on a gourmet oven, and tested numerous flours before developing his own dough recipe. The breakfast pizza is also worth a daytime return trip—and yup, the restaurant is currently open for brunch, as well as lunch and dinner.
