I'm taking my husband to Picholene's for his birthday. The reservation is a little late and I thought we'd have a drink nearby (in the Lincoln Center area) before. I'm rarely in that area and have no idea where to go. He loves martinis, so if anyone out there knows a nice place with great martinis I'd appreciate the recommendation. Also if any of you have eaten at Picholene's recently and have any suggestions that would also be much appreciated.
