55 Degree Wine, finally throws open the doors to his new brat and beer joint, Link-n-Hops. The space is communal and colorful, and the menu is full of links, all made exclusively for LI - salmon chipotle, chicken habanero, wild boar marsala, pheasant cognac, duck with bacon - plus several veggie and vegan options (eggplant sausage, anyone?). Fries are Belgian-style, pickles aren't free. The 24 taps flow with craft brews like Dogfish Head Palate Wrecker and Green Flash Revolution.
Stop in today (Aug. 2) for the grand opening and you'll get to sample a lot - complimentary bites and sips are on offer all day (3111 Glendale Blvd.; 323-426-9049).
