You’re feeling pretty good today.

The Pats trounced Buffalo yesterday. Your dreams consisted mainly of pork products. You called your nana (without even being asked to).

Let’s keep the good juju flowing through you.

Say, with news of the best place to hit Southie in ages.

Behold: Lincoln Tavern and Restaurant, the brand-new cathedral of wood-fired pizza and 1940s-style American saloon-ing, soft-opening tonight on West Broadway.

Bursting to life in a former Payless shoe store like a fountain spray of 14-foot ceilings, 50-foot bars and custom-made mahogany everything, this place conjures a range of emotions. First, it’s huge, but feels warm (upon entrance, you’ll be hit with the smell of oven-roasted meatballs and house-rolled sage gnocchi).

Second, your first pint or copper-mug-housed Moscow Mule will feel like you’ve found a new home for raucously laughing with college buddies. But continue past the vintage-y clock into the back, however, and you’re now standing in a date-worthy wine bistro of white subway tile, seasonal wines and a custom 100% wood-fired oven (tip: get the simple marinara pizza).

Oh, and one more thing: the great expanse of exposed brick walls will be having projection screens installed for viewing games. Pats. Bruins...
