Parents' 30th anniversary = Dec 21. They haven't eaten at any of the fancy NYC restaurants yet. We "kids" are looking to send them to a special pre-theater dinner at a top restaurant, but most places seem to have 5:30pm as their earliest seating. Personally, I think that is a little rushed to enjoy a relaxed dinner before an 8pm curtain call.
a) Do any places have seatings earlier than 5:30pm?
b) Where would you suggest sending them? (PS - Mom is a vegetarian - eggs and dairy are fine)
