Solo bar dining near Lincoln Center
Any place in the area (within 10 blocks) where I can get a good early (pre-8pm) dinner at a bar/counter? I'd prefer something not super formal or expensive...under $30 for food only. When I'm in the area I usually grab a bite at Epicerie Boulud but I'd prefer a place where I can actually sit down. Any kind of cuisine is ok.
Cafe Luxembourg for burgers and fish and chips
Salumeria Rosi for small plates
RedFarm should be opening soon in the former Fatty Crab space.
Also, Marcus Samuelsson just opened American Table in the lobby of Alice Tully Hall. Here's the menu:
Bar Boulud, obviously -- it's my go to place for pre-opera meals.
Cafe Luxembourg -- that's my second choice.
