Restaurants in Lincoln Center area
I am looking for a restaurant near Lincoln Center for a post-graduation (around 2-3 p.m.) lunch. I would like something gracious and interesting (not a seafood place) that is nearby and reasonably priced. Any suggestions?
+1 to The Smith and Lincoln
At Time Waner there are some options..
Telepan (69th or 68th)
Cafe Luxemburg, (70th)
'cesca (74th St)
Friends of mine (with high standards for food) really enjoyed Gabriels last year after the NYU Med School graduation. Elegant with good waiter service--nice after a graduation.
This year, after the Columbia B-school graduation, they went to Telepan for brunch. They're still raving about how good it was.
I really do think you need to define "reasonably priced." I would consider many of the restaurants mentioned above to be on the expensive side. But then, most restaurants in that neighborhood that are "gracious and interesting" are.
Oh. And my one meal at Loi, soon after it opened, was borderline dismal and I have not returned. Has it improved considerably?
Immediate vicinity of Lincoln Center is pretty spendy, with exception of The Smith, which is probably your best bet, assuming your definition of "reasonably priced" is under $40pp.
