Lincoln Ristorante

Overview:

This Lincoln Center restaurant has been in operation for 7 years. Originally opened by chef Jonathan Beno of Per Se, the restaurant recently exchanged hands and is now being helmed by chef Shea Gallante. The glass walled space is large and elegant, with a sprawling open kitchen separating the 3 dining rooms. The space feels more modern than other upscale venues of its type. Following suit, the deceptively simple menu is contemporary; nothing feels over worked or exceedingly fussy. Beautiful renditions of Italy’s classic dishes are all over the menu like an insanely creamy burrata and perfectly cooked fresh pappardelle & garganelli. Entrees are a decent size, the best of which is the bistecca in padella -sirloin of beef, grilled sugarloaf chicory, spring onions & maitake mushrooms. This meal will set you back, but it is a lovely experience worth having if you want to be a bit fancy for the evening.
