Bar Boulud or Lincoln Ristorante pre-show?

walker42 | Feb 15, 201910:44 PM     35

This trip, business brings me to midtown, but that doesn't mean I don't have some time off! Sunday we'll be seeing a 3pm show at Lincoln Center and we have lots of choices for the preceding lunch/brunch. We've never had a meal of note in the area (well, many years ago but that doesn't matter now), so this is "virgin territory" for us. The most feng shui choice would be Lincoln Ristorante to keep it in the Lincoln Center family, so to speak, but I accept that it will be hit of miss there; the charcuterie at Bar Boulud, however, gets high marks and is something I would enjoy. It would also create a Grand Theme of sorts for our "Midtown Adventure" with reservations secured at Cafe Boulud and Daniel for dinners the days before and after (a late dinner this particular Sunday night will be at Marea). Brunch at Nougatine would be a possibility as well. Any others?

Really, I'm more concerned about the experience of the pre-show meal and the logistics of it. As long as the food is enjoyable, I'll be happy. Will either (or others) of these choices deliver? Also, a first rate cocktail program will help me get through the matinee of My Fair Lady - just sayin'.
