Lincoln — Lunch on 30 January 2020

Lincoln

Last stop on the January 2020 Restaurant Tour: Lincoln. Lincoln is the sister restaurant—brother restaurant?—of Teddy & The Bully Bar, our previous stop. The restaurants are owned by the same people and have similar menus. Lincoln actually came first, with Teddy opening a few years later.

If the owners ever decide to open a third restaurant with a complementary theme, they could name it after President Eisenhower. “Ike’s Place”, possibly.  After that, they’d be in dangerous territory, because they’d have pretty much exhausted the list of Republican presidents who don’t cause at least mild nausea and indigestion among a sizable portion of the population. Tricky Dick’s Cafe? Donnie’s Wall-burger?

Bacon & Apple Croquettes

Brussels sprouts were on the menu here, too, and because I’d so liked the Brussels sprouts at Teddy’s the other day, I was tempted to try Lincoln’s variation. I went with the bacon and apple croquettes, with brown butter-pear puree, pickled cipollini onion, and fried sage instead, because I’d already decided to have steak for the main again, and repeating both the starter and the main seemed a little too OCD.

This time, the New York Strip Loin came with smoked fingerling potato, grilled broccoli, and a sherry-mushroom fricassee. Nicely done.

Dessert was carrot cake and salted caramel ice cream.
