Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Take a wander through the Lincoln Centre and you’ll stumble upon the building’s eatery opposite the reflecting pool and Henry Moore sculpture, named (perhaps unsurprisingly), Lincoln Ristorante. A fine dining venue that has Italian style and cuisine in spades, it’s a spot that merges traditional techniques and Italian flavors with contemporary culinary flare.
At the heart of the restaurant – and very much the center of attention – is the theatrical open kitchen, where you can view dishes being prepared. Headed up by executive chef Shea Gallante (formerly of Felidia, Bouley, and Cru), the kitchen preps pasta, grissini and focaccia in-house, as well as presenting diners with a range of dishes from polpetti di vitello (veal meatballs) to tortino di cioccolato (chocolate genovese).
While our location beside Lincoln Center’s reflecting pool and Henry Moore sculpture is exquisite, with panoramic views and a grass lawn roof, the heart of our restaurant is the central open kitchen. The stunning glass pavilion building that houses the restaurant was designed by Diller, Scofidio + Renfro. Our Negroni Bar and Prosecco Bar have rotating selections. We offer 350 wines on the list, constantly evolving and focused on small producers.
Our role in the Lincoln Center community is to provide a gracious fine dining experience that reflects the best of both Italy and New York. We invite you to join us, share a meal and a glass of wine at our table
