Following a soft opening packed with 175 attendees, the co-partners of Proof Rooftop Lounge in Midtown opened Lincoln Bar + Kitchen on Saturday for the fight of the century. The new venture on the Washington Corridor will serve signature cocktails alongside a full kitchen menu with cheekily named dishes like the Lincoln Chicken Sandwich, Tater Tot Totality and other sandwiches and flat breads. Chef Gilbert Buyher formerly of legendary Red Lion Pub is behind the menu.
As you can see above, the gastro-pub's slogan is "Drink. Eat. Socialize." They're fully up and running now, doubling as an event space to catch Rockets games, and playing host to daily DJs like DJ Johnny J and Tony Styles. The space is also pet-friendly. Partner Roveen Abante says, "We are extremely excited to be a part of the Washington Ave revival. I feel there is a resurgence back into this area."
