The food at Lincoln is exceptional, creative, fresh and top drawer. In an odd location as it is far trendier, hipper than its surroundings. The challenge is that the restaurant can’t get the service levels down. Sometimes moves fast, other times the order is messed...More

I’m still thinking about the outstanding open faced heirloom tomato and ricotta sandwich I thoroughly enjoyed at Lincoln today. Wow! I asked them to add avocado which put it over the top. Wish this was on the menu all the time!

Creative dishes. Food so fresh you can taste the goodness. Always something new. Always a win. This time we had the tuna melt on rye---perfectly grilled, tuna tasty. The fresh greens served as a side were so good they could have been a stand alone...More
