Rec for pre opera Lincoln Center apps and cocktails for two. Must be special we probably can't afford to do this again in this lifetime..

    Stone Rose bar in the Time Warner Center or Robert in the Museum of Art & Design on Columbus Circle.

        Picholine, the front area has great small plates, incredible wine selection, and a couple great bar tenders. Very classy place to boot.

          Asiate, the lounge area has wonderful cocktails and a beautiful view of the park.

            Another vote for Picholine. Or, if the weather's nice, rooftop of Empire Hotel.

            I'd also vote for Picholine. Asiate is terrific, but only memorable if they'll seat you near the window (which may only be for those eating dinner---you could always call and ask.)

            The atmosphere at Bar Boulud is more casual and less memorable than the other two.
