Over at Lincoln Ristorante, chef Jonathan Benno is presenting a special menu focusing on the cuisine of Umbria, specifically with black truffle from Norcia, Italy and a handful of classic Umbrian dishes like fried pork cheek with escarole and lentils. Those dishes are available now through March. [EaterWire]
