Parents Dinner near the Met for pre-opera dinner

nataliya.v | Dec 24, 2008 06:47 AM

I'm looking for a place to get a gift certificate for my parents for their anniversary. I will be getting them some tix to the Opera at the met, and would like to add dinner to the mix. Needs to be very convenient to getting to the theatre (my mom is paranoid about being late, and gets stressed out) Preferably within a 10 min walk .

Mom loves seafood, dad will eat pretty much anything. They just moved from LA to greenwich ct and I want to treat them to something distinctly NY and special. Moms a sucker for a great view, but I know places with a great view tend to have mediocre food. Wondering about Asiate.

Budget is around $200 total excluding wine (they don't drink much). Last time they were in NYC they loved Perilla. So something similar in terms of food would be nice, but the atmosphere could be more formal. Any suggestions would be great! THANKS!
