Our Exciting Work Environment

At Lincoln Ristorante, we offer Chef Shea Gallante s interpretation of Italian cuisine in New York at Lincoln Center. Our philosophy is simple: to source the best local ingredients and prepare them with authentic Italian methods and spirit. We rely on local farmers and purveyors along with weekly visits to our neighborhood Tucker Square Greenmarket, while importing irreplaceable items from Italy. We honor the Italian culinary tradition of making our own fresh pastas, grissini, and focaccia. Desserts, by Richard Capizzi, are beautiful renditions of Italy s classics: light, lush and irresistible. A focus and commitment to freshness and respect for every ingredient is paramount in our daily life.

While our location beside Lincoln Center s reflecting pool and Henry Moore sculpture is exquisite, with panoramic views and a grass lawn roof, the heart of our restaurant is the central open kitchen. The stunning glass pavilion building that houses the restaurant was designed by Diller, Scofidio + Renfro. Our Negroni Bar and Prosecco Bar have rotating selections. Wine Director Aaron von Rock and his team offer 350 wines on the list, constantly evolving and focused on small producers.

Our role in the Lincoln Center community is to provide a gracious fine dining experience that reflects the best of both Italy and New York. Our mission would be impossible without our talented restaurant team of dedicated culinary and hospitality professionals who embody this world-class dining experience. Patina Restaurant Group is seeking similarly passionate individuals to share in this vocation with us. We are dedicated to facilitating growth and development of our employees' careers in all fields.
