Greetings from NC. We are attending the ballet Saturday at 1 PM. I would like a good spot for lunch relatively close to the Opera House. I imagine lunch will take 1+ hours (hopefully) so somewhere we could walk to the Opera House within 15 or so minutes. I think most lunch places open at 11h30, anything that opens earlier would be great as we like to drink wine and relax while we dine.. I have looked at Marliave, been to too many Jean Georges places already, Moo seems to do more of a brunch than lunch. I use Open Table but do not want to limit myself to only Open Table spots. We are doing brunches (two, I hope) at Beehive and Gaslight Sunday so prefer to do more of a lunch rather than brunch. We are open in the areas of cuisine type and price. We are staying at the Doubletree near Chinatown so will walk in the direction of the Opera House (weather permitting). If there is an incredible Saturday lunch spot further away that allows time to be back for the ballet, I am all ears...we can get a cab/car. Any input is appreciated. Thanks much.
