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.

Had a nice date night dinner at Lincoln last night. Liked the energy in the place, liked the small plate idea and liked the small plate execution even more - Brussels Sprouts, French Fries, Amish Chicken, Farro all really good - and the Brandino was simply excellent. Pleasant waitress a little busy but kept things flowing nicely.

Only restaurant open Sunday night in the area across from hotel. Food delicious but portions small for average eater. So be sure to order enough and enjoy.

Go when it is happy hour you get better deals and if you have enough friends you can share the punch bowl. I love finding interesting places to visit and since there are so many options in DC it's often hard to choose which one. I enjoyed the food and the experience here, maybe make a reservation if you are going at a popular time. We did not but were lucky enough to get seated in one of the last tables by the bar. It is pricey in off happy hour prices and I may not visit otherwise just for that reason but the ambiance was great.

We just discovered this excellent restaurant. It features interesting twists on classic dishes-many of which are served in small plate style. We enjoyed a strip steak, Mac and cheese, Parker rolls with gingerbread butter and the best chicken pot pie I’ve had in years! The kitchen is also open late, another plus in my book. Well worth a return visit on my next trip to DC.

This place is great for groups and fun staff is attentive and warm and welcoming. Food is great for price point chicken pot pie is a must. service is above what I expected. The bar area does get loud but I guess it was just that group celebrating.
