At least on a Saturday night, Lincoln didn't feel like your typical, stodgy, boring DC restaurant/bar. The place is lively, but not loud, welcoming without being cloying. And the food is terrific. Small plates, yes, but generous ones, and so good for sharing. The cocktails...More

Consistently good food at reasonable prices. Good soups -- particularly now that it is soup season. Nicely done grilled salmon. Main courses are appropriately garnished -- you don't have to order all your vegetables separately. Extensive list of bar drinks, beer, and wine. Efficient, yet...More

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!

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.
