City Weekly Dining Guide Top 100 Restaurants of 2010

The Tin Angel Cafe is wildly popular for it's quirky, funky, fun atmosphere and food, not to mention live music and art shows. Perched across from Pioneer Park, you can count on chef Jerry Liedtke to incorporate fresh ingredients from the Downtown Farmer's Market when it's in operation. In warm weather, that patio is a great place to take in the neighborhood sights and sounds, nibbling on Tin Angel tapas like fried risotto cakes, speck wrapped shrimp, spiced almonds with bleu cheese, bresaola carpaccio, chorizo and shrimp skewers or fish cakes with spicy aioli. On Saturdays, there's a popular brunch - be sure to try the all-natural beef tips with eggs.
