I went here once. Very cool setup and decorations. The food was extremely good but small portions and very pricey.

Hello: My son has egg, peanut and tree nut, sesame, and shellfish food allergies. I was wondering if it would be ok for him to eat here. He has had biscuits and gravy in the past at restaurants without problems, as long as there is no egg contamination with the biscuits. We were considereing brunch. Thank you, Tom

Hi, I can't answer you specifically, but I think that they are very accommodating to their patrons, so I think it's worth asking. You can always walk out if they address your son's needs. Good luck!

They are very responsive, I would call them and ask. Those allergies are nothing to fool around with ( as you know).

Description
From the spirit of freedom in artistic creation, liberation from culinary mediocrity, and emancipation from the ordinary, LINCOLN is an expression of artistic collaborations in gastronomy, mixology and design. Savor our seasonal American small plate menu crafted from fresh ingredients supplied by local & regional farms. LINCOLN pays tribute to one of our greatest US Presidents, with nods to many of his favorite foods including oysters, gingerbread and chicken pot pie. If you’re thirsty for cocktails that are truly one-of-a-kind, our barkeeps, have created one of the city’s freshest bar programs highlighted by mason jars featuring infused bourbons and DC's first moonshine-list served in antique-style copper cups. In warm weather months enjoy our patio offering panoramic views of DC’s urban landscape. Original paintings and a distinctive interior design by homegrown pop artist, Maggie O’Neill make LINCOLN a feast for the senses at Lunch, happy hour, dinner or after dark.
