Restaurant near Lincoln Center

I need a good restaurant close to Lincoln Center...not too expensive. Is that possible? I'd like to be as close to Broadway and 65th St. as possible.

  1. Rosa Mexicano is around the corner from PJ Clarkes. There's Landmarc in the Columbus Circle mall thing.

      Rosa Mexicana is terrible. Just terrible.

      Bar Boulud is a good choice, I think Lincoln may be a better one.

        Hmm... I don't think Rosa Mexicano is terrible; it's definitely not haute cuisine. I agree it's not great, but it's decent and reasonably priced. I do find the area challenging unless you are willing to spend more or willing to travel to the 70s or 80s.

          I say Bar Boulud over Landmarc. I do like Landmarc in Tribeca, but for some reason really don't care for the one at TWC.

          I haven't been to Boulud Sud, but I guess that's worth a consideration as well.

      2. Bar Boulud. Although I'm not sure what "not too expensive" means to you.

          Not too expensive means not Per Se or Asiate. I noticed Bar Boulud. That might be a good choice. Thanks

        2. Whym is not too far from 65th. Good food and vibe. Reasonable prices.

            If walking is a concern, the Whym is not worth the extra blocks. Atlantic Grill has moved into the space where O'Neals used to be, on 64th just east of B'way. I haven't been yet, but here's the menu: http://www.menupages.com/restaurants/...
            You can also go in from the 65th street side.

              I've been the the Lincoln Center Atlantic Grill for brunch and lunch and think it would be a terrific choice. Very good food, nice surroundings and service, and perfect location for OP.

              I went to a Whym a couple months ago and thought it was absolutely dreadful - cheap food, cooked poorly. I did enjoy Salumeria Rosi, Italian tapas if you will. But it's tight and packed not everyone's cup of tea.

            3. Check out Boulud Sud around the corner from Bar Boulud ---newer and more varied menu.

                Boulud Sud serves only a prixe fixe menu between 5:45 and 7:00 and it's too limited. I don't really want a course meal before the theater. Thanks to all of you for your recommendations. We may end up in Shun Lee Cafe.
