Let it Linger

 

Linger
Always in search of the newest culinary hotspot, we have been counting down the days to the opening of Linger. Today, our wait is officially over. Chef and Restaurateur Justin Cucci of the wildly successful Root Down does it again with his latest gastronomical fete, dishing up creative cuisine in the brand-spanking-new Lohi Marketplace. Situated in the old Olinger building (the name aptly adorns the roof giving Cucci’s digs a life-size shout out) right next to popular haunts like Little Man Ice Cream and Lola, Linger serves up an eclectic mix of delicacies from the likes of Asia, Europe, the Americas and the Middle East without missing a beat. Playful touches like a ‘Lite Brite’ laden bartop and cheeky nods to the space’s former life as a mortuary grace the place with undeniable character and charm. Decked out with primarily reclaimed furniture, Linger boasts a cool kid sensibility that’s worth the inevitable waitlist. Opening today at 5:30, Linger is ready for business Tuesday – Saturday, with what’s sure to become the city’s hottest happy hour from 4:30-6.
