It is reported that Abe's favorite foods were lobster and wild game, not a bad place to start for a new restaurant.

Maybe Lincolna would be more Italian...but speaking of Lincoln,with a mind twisted by Shirley Ellis at a young age,and too many days of late spent in a hot kitchen....Lincoln Lincoln bo Binckon,Banana Fanna fo Finkoln,me my mo Mincoln,Lincoln.

Can't breath. Laughing too hard.

Still laughing.

(Wouldn't "Lincolnia" be even more Italian? Or, "Lincolno?")

ADMINS: Maybe this locked thread should be merged into this one as well.

Is it true it's just been re-named Abe's?

I sure hope there is a lot more to this restaurant in style and scope than these two dishes.

Off-topic -- but not WAY off:

Am I stupid to be so excited about the Andre Soltner post-NY Phil concert supper next January?

To mitchells: Why? With food like that, they'll have a good shot at staying in business. :rolleyes:

It's impossible to be too excited about any dinner preapred by Soltner.

I remember reading somewhere that they expected the average check to be $112 per head. That makes the Eggplant Parm at least $20 and the Spaghetti Pomodoro at least $35 plus wine and dessert!

Well okay then -- those can subsidize the fancier stuff you'd rather eat, which I expect will be there. Like vitello tonnato and shrimp with speck, maybe? (FWIW, that article cites $110; but that's only 1.8% less than you thought. ;) )

If I had to guess, Lincoln might expect more tasting menus that your average high end Italian restaurant. F&F menu had about 20 items, evenly split between antipasti, primi, fish and meat. No prices though, we'll have to wait until tonight for that.
