Lincoln Center Kitchen Opens at Home of NY Philharmonic

Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center is now home to a fine American dining establishment, Lincoln Center Kitchen

With the music from live performances piped in, it will almost be like dinner and a show.

Avery Fisher Hall, the main concert hall of Lincoln Center, and home to the New York Philharmonic, just opened its first sit-down restaurant. Lincoln Center Kitchen — under chef Ed Brown (of Ed’s Chowder House) and Argentinian executive chef Daniel Anconetani — will serve classic American fare. Dinner guests who eat at the restaurant during performances will be treated to music piped in from the concert hall just upstairs.

The menu will, according to representatives from Lincoln Center Kitchen, feature “timeless American cooking with a focus on regional flavors and global inspirations.” Expect dishes like wild mushroom popovers, Berkshire pork chop with braised kale and green apple compote, and bacon blue mac and cheese, as well as a variety of upscale bar snacks like the short rib burger. There will also be a full beer and wine menu, as well as cocktails from mixologist April Wachtel.

The restaurant itself, situated just inside Avery Fisher Hall, features a lounge, main dining room, and private events space, and is open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday.
