With its sloping lawn of a roof and glass-encased, angular, minimalist dining room, Lincoln is a futuristic stand-out in the sprawling theater of Lincoln Center Plaza. Behind the scenes is 2005 New York Rising Star Chef Jonathan Benno—formerly second-in-command to Thomas Keller and head of the Per Se kitchen—who, along with Pastry Chef (and fellow Per Se alum) Richard Capizzi, works to perfect the restaurant’s Italian menu. The creative Capizzi is Italian to the core, but knows how to coif his pastry to fit seamlessly into New York dining.
