Metropolitan Opera-Budget Dining Ideas?
Have already spent too much on opera tickets-can anyone recommend budget offerings anywhere between 57th and 72nd streets?
Compass, on 70th St., b/t Amsterdam & West End Avs., serves excellent food in a very attractive space. (Ask to be seated in one of their really comfy booths.) In addition to the more expensive a la carte dinner menu, they offer a 3-course prix-fixe for $35.
Enjoy the opera and Bon Appetit!
What's the budget amount$$? So far, you've received two very good, but very different ends of the spectrum for suggestions.
Here are a few suggestions:
Bouchon Bakery cafe in the Time Warner Center.
Bin 71 on Columbus between 71st & 70th for panini and meatballs.
Le Pain Quotidien on 65th St. between Broadway & CPW.
