We're new to NYC, new to the opera, (new to it ALL, practically). Any suggestions for places to go pre-opera for dinner. As far as price ranges and cuisines go, we're flexible but Nougatine -like places look like a good try (we've not been there yet, it's just been recommended). Any other suggestions? Also, what time should we be booking to make the opera?
Also, how about afterwards suggestions for drinks/cocktails?
