Lincoln Heights: Craft Beer and Meatball Sub at The Heights
I was back in the old neighborhood and stopped into The Heights for a bite and a beer before a show.
My friend asked me if things have changed much in Lincoln Heights. Yes and no. Sure, now there’s this bottle shop where you can grab a slice or get a 6-pack of craft beer. But I haven’t seen any big box stores in the neighborhood. And I hope it stays a working class immigrant neighborhood despite an uptick in gentrification all around this Northeast Los Angeles enclave.
The Heights has a small parking lot in the back but I found street parking rather easily.
After looking over the beer list, I got the Imperial Milk Stout, the Fantastic Voyage from Perennial Artisan Ales out of St. Louis. It’s a coconut milk stout and it was delicious. I did wish they had taster pours. I wanted to try so many other beers.
We were getting sandwiches but I wanted a little salad. The antipasto salad as it turns out was not a “little’ salad by any means. At the time of this writing, I’m on day three of eating my leftover salad.
I love meatball subs and this one from The Heights was awesome. It had good meatballs, good sauce and good gooey cheese. The bread was the kind I like, light but sturdy and it’s so awesome warm.
My friend had the chicken parm which I didn’t taste as I was too busy stuffing myself with salad and meatballs. But she described it as a solid, well made chicken parm.
We’ll have to return to get pizza. They also sell by the slice which you can customize.
