"The BBQ wings appetizer was delish ! the trout dinner was also very good. Service was good, not overbearing, but very timely. We were in the mood for a casual place to dine that was unpretentious and Light Horse delivered. I would definitely return."

LINCOLN is an expression of artistic collaborations in gastronomy, mixology and design. <br />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. <br />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. <br />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, brunch or after dark. <br />

JoJo offers relaxed yet elegant dining on two floors of a quaint, turn-of-the-century brownstone on the Upper East Side. The first of Jean-Georges’ restaurants in New York City, this neighborhood gem opened in 1991 to rave reviews. It was voted best new restaurant of the year by Esquire magazine and has retained its three-star status from the New York Times for 21 years. Regarding the name, JoJo was Chef Jean-Georges’ nickname as a young boy. Jojo is a hospitable setting for a casual dinner, special occasion, or private party. Guests can feel comfortable in jeans or in evening attire. The contemporary French menu still features some well-loved original dishes, including the Warm Valrhona Chocolate Cake.

"The charred octopus, salmon sushi and ricotta ravioli were amazing appetizers, and the salmon main plates with truffle mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts were scrumptous. The mix of flavors is unbelievable. The service is always good here. Knowledgable staff and great managers making it all work. This wasn't my first visit and it certainly won't be my last."
