Was taken here for by colleagues during a work conference. The food was good and service was really quick. Not sure about the pricing as I was just visiting DC but it seemed reasonable to me. The place is a little noisy though so wouldn't...More

The "Lincoln" theme is fun and the food is delicious, with lots of options for small plates to share with your table. Best if you order a variety and share. The Korean-style mussels were surprisingly good -- they sound a little intimidating but were really...More

Excellent small plates restaurant with a fine combination of southern tinged food. Went in a Group of eight while attending a conference at the Westin. Highlights were the chicken pot pie and Brussel sprouts and risotto and short ribs —really everything. Nice desserts too. Fine...More

The only good thing about this meal was the soup! The appetizer was supposed to be beef carpaccio, but the problem was that it was difficult to find the beef carpaccio. The only piece that I did find was no bigger than a one inch...More

A cousin recommended the Lincoln, as it was a very short walk from our hotel. The quantities were more than enough and quite tasty, with a light Spanish flair. Service was good and the price was moderate.

Hi, I can't answer you specifically, but I think that they are very accommodating to their patrons, so I think it's worth asking. You can always walk out if they address your son's needs. Good luck!

They are very responsive, I would call them and ask. Those allergies are nothing to fool around with ( as you know).

Description
From the spirit of freedom in artistic creation, liberation from culinary mediocrity, and emancipation from the ordinary, LINCOLN is an expression of artistic collaborations in gastronomy, mixology and design. Savor our seasonal American small plate menu crafted from fresh ingredients supplied by local & regional farms. LINCOLN pays tribute to one of our greatest US Presidents, with nods to many of his favorite foods including oysters, gingerbread and chicken pot pie. If you’re thirsty for cocktails that are truly one-of-a-kind, our barkeeps, have created one of the city’s freshest bar programs highlighted by mason jars featuring infused bourbons and DC's first moonshine-list served in antique-style copper cups. In warm weather months enjoy our patio offering panoramic views of DC’s urban landscape. Original paintings and a distinctive interior design by homegrown pop artist, Maggie O’Neill make LINCOLN a feast for the senses at Lunch, happy hour, dinner or after dark.
