Lincoln Center’s Operatic New Restaurant

We love Lincoln, the spectacular new restaurant that’s part of architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro’s redesign of Lincoln Center. It’s in a glass-enclosed pavilion with a sloping grass-covered roof, a public park that overlooks the reflecting sculpture pool. The restaurant interior is as soaring and dramatic as anything performed on stage at the Metropolitan Opera across the plaza. And the all-Italian menu by chef Jonathan Benno, who used to be at Per Se, lives up to its fabulous setting. Where better to dine on Presidents’ Day?
