I am planning to make a 5-day trip to NYC from Europe at the end of October, and have already reserved tickets for Madama Butterfly at the Met Opera for me and my gf whom I will be visiting. As we will be on a tight schedule on the day, we are unlikely to be able to dine before the show, and as I would like this to be a memorable and complete night I am trying to figure out our options. Would it be possible to have a full meal at the Grand Tier over the show's 2 intermissions? What other options would we have given the fact that the show ends at 11:25pm according to the Met's website? Could we make a reservation at Picholine after 11:30? Any other suggestions?
Thanks in advance for helping me plan a great romantic night for my gf whom I haven't seen in 2 months!
