Restaurant in Lincoln Center Area

chowdaddy Apr 30, 2013 01:58 PM

I need a restaurant that can accomodate a friend for dinner after a Sat matinee at Lincoln Center. My guest is alergic to ALL shellfish and nuts. Wont eat pork, Wont eat italian.
Will eat a burger or possibly fried chicken. I live outside of Philly so I cant eat at home. Any suggestions for dinner in the Lincoln Center are?

    I had dinner at Cafe Luxembourg once, and i believe I was able to walk from there to Lincoln Center (I heard about it because Kristin Chenoweth said it was a favorite of hers, in Bon Appetit). French inspired, entrees about $20ish I think.

      Cafe Lux is super close to Lincoln Center and the burger (and other things) are back to being good (it has been around forever and has cycles of good and bad depending on the chef I suppose). It isn't cheap for what it is... but it isn't expensive overall either.

      The Smith is right opposite Lincoln Center

        I'll bet that Bar Bouloud, right across the street, could handle this with aplomb.

          Bar Boulud is my favorite for that area, although Kathryn's rec for The Smith is good too.

            Bar Boulud would be my pick too: be sure to make a reservation ahead of time.

          Well you can do much worse than rosa mexicano right across the street. Fairly decent Mexican

          For something more upscale you have Taboon on 10th, 5-10 mins away.

          Not too sure how allergy friendly they are tho

            Sounds like perhaps your friend is also a bit of a picky eater? Landmarc's burger is quite good. They're a few blocks away in the Time Warner Center. There's also The Smith.

              Since any non-Italian restaurant will fit the bill, assuming your guest doesn't order shellfish or pork (and tells the server about the nuts), maybe give some other guidance: price, how fancy, etc?
