Dinner before the Amato Opera
I'm looking for a place to dine alone on a Friday night before the opera (I don't mind dining at the bar but would probably prefer a table) or for a place that will be able to get us in and out efficiently if my friend comes in after work from Long Island for dinner before the show. Any recommendations for drinks after the opera are also appreciated.
Bianca. That's what I was thinking even before I clicked.
Otherwise, and this doesn't really go with theater but Great Jones Cafe is an excellent place. Kitchy and unrefined but good cajun food and burgers in an place that's been on the bowery nearly as long as CBGBs. I get a Bloody mary everytime regardless of the time. Really fun and laid back and for me, a bit more comfortable to dine alone, though I'd sit at the bar.
