Eater_Lincoln_150.jpgThe City Paper's Chris Shott brings a Civil War scholar with him to critique Lincoln and see how the new restaurant stacks up against history. Some of the dishes turn out to be true to Honest Abe, but the entire concept? Not so much.

He’s not going to be interested in anything but sustenance." [WCP]
