Suggestions for Pre-Ballet lunch/brunch ?
Help! Taking Mom to the ballet this Sunday and need suggestions for lunch or brunch nearby. Most places I've yelped are only open for dinner on Sundays. Any suggestions would be most appreciated!
What places did you look at?
How about Zuni or Hayes Street Grill? More lunch but they're open.
I second the recommendation of Absinthe. I had brunch there last weekend and it was wonderful. We began with an order of crispy frites and another of grits to enjoy as appetizers with drinks, and I had a terrific Sazerac. My companions ordered a variety of good egg dishes, but I don't like dairy, and often find brunch a challenging meal. So, I was very glad to be able to order a delicious hamburger with good home fries on the side. Service was friendly and professional, and we never felt rushed.

Under no circumstances should you ever eat the pre-ballet buffet (or plated buffet meal food) served in the basement of War Memorial Opera House.
While convenient, it's all sterno warmers... imagine if your Aunt Edna decided to get remarried and have a buffet lunch of salmon or chicken.
