Need lunch reco near/between the theater district and Lincoln Center
My parents (60's, 70's, from Philly, who enjoy the good, better and best restaurants that Philly has to offer) are taking my niece (early 20's, flexible but not an adventurous eater) to see the ballet at Lincoln Center on 26-Nov (Sat). They plan to park in the theater district, wander around and then walk to the Lincoln Center. They are looking for recommendations for a nice lunch. Moderately expensive to expensive is fine, but nothing too extravagant. Most cuisines will work. I wish I had more details to provide, but I do not know my niece's food preferences. Thanks in advance.
Why are they parking in the Theater District? I think that's a really bad idea, especially on what's undoubtedly going to be a nightmare of a day traffic-wise. Is it that they're looking to spend some time walking around NYC before the ballet? If that's the case, I'm sure we can come up with some dining recommendations that also include the opportunity to explore the city a bit.
