Pre-opera dinner, BLT Market or....?

Girlfriend's parents are coming to town Saturday night and we are going to the opera at the met. Looking for nice, but simple food, preferably heavy on the salad and fish. Best idea I have come up with thus far is the pre-theater menu at BLT Market. Anyone have any other better ideas? Considered bar boulud, but gf thought her parents would like the blt market menu better.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

  1. If you don't think they'd like Bar Boulud, send them to Boulud Sud.

    IMO, BLT Market is much too far from the MET to be convenient for a pre-opera dinner where they'll probably have to rush to make the curtain even if they're dining across the street.

    1. Have you considered Atlantic Grill on 64th St? It's certainly heavy on fish...
