If you were to ask me to describe what a gastropub is, I would keep my mouth shut and just point you in the direction of Hopleaf and let it speak for itself. Memorable food, a list full of beers that are keepers in a warm, bustling publike building. I believe Lincoln needs one of these.

No brush with greatness today, for which I am glad. I came here to get away from the hubub. XOCO for lunch, Violet Hour and The Bristol later today.
