Lincoln Park outdoor café/bars are a dime a dozen. But we’d gladly plunk down more than ten cents to hang at this comfy, friendly American neighborhood bistro (which is located right next door to its sister joint, D.O.C. Wine Bar). Standouts include pork tenderloin and seasonal grilled fish, both of which are prepared simply but solidly. True, there’s an $8 chocolate chip cookie on the menu (made in a cast iron skillet). But believe us, it's worth every penny.
