I asked for suggestions for a preconcert dinner, and eventually went for Citizen Cake.

While nothing was bad, I wouldn't go back -- it was overpriced for the quality and the service was erratic -- most annoying was the long wait between the time our appetizer was cleared and the entree which meant we didn't have time to order dessert as we had planned. Since we had told the waitress we need to be out by 7:30 (to pick up our tickets at the box office), this was particularly irksome.

Anyway, $68 (before tax and tip) for one appetizer, two entrees and two glasses of wine seemed excessive. There are lots of places in the City where we could have had as good or better meal for less.
