Lincoln is the new Lincoln Center restaurant combining Chef Jonathan Benno's modern interpretation of Italian cuisine with the vision of restaurateur Nick Valenti. For Benno, this is a breakout role in a career highlighted by a decade of cooking at Per Se and The French Laundry. His cuisine blends precise technique with the ingredients and comforting feel of an Italian kitchen. Lincoln has breathtaking panoramic views and a grass lawn roof, but its heart is the central open kitchen. Desserts, by Richar Capizzi, are beautiful renditions of Italy's classics. Wine Director Aaron von Rock designed an all-Italian wine list with 350 selections.
