Saturday lunch before ballet at Lincoln Center

You guys helped me out a couple of months ago, so I'm going to ask again :-)

This Saturday, my wife & I are going to see the Nutcracker at 2 PM at Lincoln Center.

Looking for a place to eat lunch reasonably nearby (moderate walking distance OK, can take a taxi if necessary, on an MTA bus line a plus --- she doesn't like to ride the subway) before the show.

Last time, someone suggested J G Melon's on the UES for lunch after a Dr. Appt. .... and we had a very nice time. That was much appreciated.

So what say the group for this Saturday noon on the mid-to-upper West Side ?

By way of reference, here's what I posted for my last query ----

"We enjoy casual, not fancy or formal, American food ,,,, ideally someplace 'fun' or 'interesting' (but not too eclectic) with good desserts a definite plus .... low to moderate priced. Usually we just end up grabbing a sandwich at Lenny's on 1st between 68th & 69th. We also like Katz's Deli, Levain Bakery, Grimaldi's, etc. when in their respective parts of town. Personally, I'm a Barney Greengrass fan. My wife really enjoyed lunch a while back at Alice's Tea Cup. In New Haven, we eat at Louis' Lunch. In Portland, we liked American Flatbread and Silly's."

Will watch for replies. Many thanks !
