Lincoln Ristorante: A Look Inside

Lincoln Ristorante is a showcase. The jewelbox wedge that seems to cut through the Lincoln Center plaza like a angular submarine surfacing is one the finest works designed by renowned architects Diller, Scofidio & Renfro. The cuisine created is by Jonathan Benno — the former Chef de Cuisine at Per Se — who treats his locally-sourced ingredients like works of art unto themselves. The reviews since it opened in 2010 have focused on the team’s exquisite delivery on the promise of Italian food treated with the kind of respect reserved for the cuisine of their French neighbors. This is one a series of videos that helped launch Lincoln’s food, drink and style to the world.
