I have ballet tickets to Lincoln Center and need to find a restaurant for 4 before the performance. I don't want anything as upscale as Picholine or Jean Georges and also don't want John's Pizza. One person has been to Trattoria and doesn't want to go there. Any suggestions, for a place not too far, preferably with a good pre-fixe, since we will be dining early. Thanks for any suggestions.
I looked at La Boite en Bois in Zagat's and that sounds like a possibility. Has anyone been? Any comments.
