Or the best lunch, for that matter. I like to belly up to the counter early in the morning, when the rising sun blasts into the cozy eatery, and the servers rush to lower the blinds. I nod yes for coffee, then order from the hash bar (smoked pork...

I love simple desserts and the Nutella Panini is one of my favorites at Park & Main, which bills itself as world sandwich + breakfast + espresso + wine bar. They do ALL of the above REALLY well. Opened in the first half of 2012, the restaurant...
