In Washington DC, hearing of a restaurant with the name "Lincoln" might conjure the image of some kind of kitschy tourist-trap. Since 2011, however, owner Alan Popovsky, executive chef Demetrio Zavla, and general manager Evan Russell have worked hard to ensure that Lincoln is known for its fresh, quality food and upscale menu. In fact, when you hear people talking about Lincoln, they tend to mention the restaurant’s striking modern decor, immaculate custom cocktails, and locally sourced menu of Southern-style small plates.
Standout menu items, according to Yelp reviewers, are the deviled egg appetizer, tangy kale salad, and creamy, rich chicken pot pie filled with carrots, potatoes, and peas. The restaurant’s small plate format means that you can try a range of menu items, too, so it can be a good choice if you’re in the mood to nibble and taste while chatting with some friends from Yale West.
