A collection of Lincoln Heights veterans are taking over some prime real estate along Broadway, flipping the shuttered El Siete Mares space into a new operation to be called Lincoln Kitchen & Tap.

The new bar and restaurant is the work of the same team behind The Heights, a beer and wine shop with a wide collection of sandwiches, salads, pastas, and pizza. They also own B Twentyfour, a quiet coffee shop practically across the street from their new place.

The plan with Lincoln Kitchen & Tap is to transform the former Mexican seafood restaurant into a cozy, casual spot for gastropub fare, with a heavy lean on a well-managed craft beer list. As of now, the place is looking to be about a month from completion of construction, with an opening to ideally happen before the end of the year.

Lincoln Kitchen & Tap’s arrival means there are more options to eat and drink in bustling Lincoln Heights, to say nothing of the increased dining competition happening across the bridge on the eastern edges of Chinatown. That’s where Highland Park Brewery is planning to open soon, as well as David Chang’s first Los Angeles restaurant, North Spring.
