On this rainy Tuesday, I took my mom to Tink's (3410 Telford Street) in our neighbordhood, Clifton.
She had the crabcake (L) with soy-glazed lo mein, wilted greems, sweet Thai chili sauce and roasted sesame ($10). We've always liked the crabcakes at both Tink's and Vineyard--they have a crispy exterior and creamy insides.
I tried the grilled eggplant (R) with herbed risotto, tomato reduction and whipped ricotta cream ($10). That last ingredient took the dish out of the realm of "light and healthy," whici is how I usually like to eat. But it wasn't too far over the line!
We are grateful for Tink's, the one upscale restaurant in the Ludlow-Gaslight district.
