LINCOLN Restaurant was featured in Politico Magazine this week in a piece about DC’s evolving food scene and how intertwined it has become with politics. “At just over a year old, Lincoln has already become a top happy hour and dining destination for Washington’s young professionals and for good reason,” the article says. “It offers terrific food and creative cocktails in a stunning space that is modern yet evocative of days past.”
Whether you’re a history buff, a policy wonk, a college student finishing your first Political Science Class, a tourist visiting our nation’s capital or just want a fun place to unwind after a full day on K Street or Capitol Hill, LINCOLN pulls it all together. Our original pop-art by DC’s Maggie O’Neill, reclaimed barnwood, back-lit Emancipation Proclamation and 1 million penny floor mean you’ll never lack for things to look at, or lively dinnertime conversation!
Did you know the Knob Creek bourbon in your whiskey sour was named for the stream that ran by Lincoln’s childhood home? Come try LINCOLN’s top-shelf spirits and specialty cocktails: white whiskey (a.k.a. moonshine), bright pink Gettysburg Address, or our Bloody Mary Todd (featuring cherry tomato-infused vodka, celery, onions and roasted red peppers). Says Politico: “ask the bartender to add a drop of their Do Not Use concoction: high-proof vodka infused with jalapeños, habaneros and ghost chilies.” Hot!
Savor our seasonal American small plate menu crafted from fresh, local ingredients. Our menus feature the very best sustainable fish and certified humane meat, eggs and the freshest produce from local farms – what could be more American? LINCOLN’s current local farms include Cedar Run Cattle Company in Sudlersville MD, Red Rake Farm in in Mangohick VA, and Pekin Paradise in Hamburg PA. Check out our Lunch and Dinner Menu and see how Executive Chef Demetrio Zavala is skillfully crafting one-of-a-kind dishes (some that pay homage to our 16th President) from these fresh, seasonal ingredients.
Even in a political town, there are some things everyone can agree on. LINCOLN is an expression of artistic collaboration in gastronomy, mixology & design. Politics aside we think you’ll agree: LINCOLN is an experience like no other.
