Sam Sifton goes on the hunt for "the next cool kid" at New York's Miss Lily’s Favourite Cakes and Coppelia. David Tamarkin checks out Michael Jordan’s Steak House in Chicago, which has the number 23 everywhere — including a 23-ingredient chopped salad. And Gael Greene congratulates Lincoln in New York on becoming a grown up restaurant: "It is thrilling to watch a shy and insecure adolescent grow into her or his bones and emerge magnetic, an irresistible beauty."
