Uptown/Lyn Lake


These two trendy and neighboring neighborhoods, both of which straddle Lake Street, have long been bohemian homelands. Uptown's scruffy punk-rock past has given way to a mix of upscale Asian dining, local-designer boutiques, coffee houses, and quirky specialty shops, while Lyn-Lake preserves a slightly funkier vibe: two important small theaters reside here, along with some well-established and beloved restaurants, among them It's Greek to Me, whose ethnic flavor is obvious, and The Egg and I, where neighborhood hipsters congregate for hangover-soothing breakfasts.
