The Upper West Side is home to some of the city’s most sensational new restaurants, so you can make your Lincoln Center pre- and postshow plans as exceptional as the performance itself.
EAT: Dinner at Boulud Sud
Inspired and refined Mediterranean fare from the inimitable Daniel Boulud. Need we say more? 20 West 64th Street (between Broadway and Central Park West)
DO: See World-Class Theater, Opera, Dance, Music, and Film at Lincoln Center
Before you head into your show, check to see if the stunning Revson Fountain in the Josie Robertson Plaza is in the midst of its own performance: a five-minute-long, choreographed water show with columns that reach up to 40 feet. 10 Lincoln Center Plaza (Columbus Avenue between West 62nd and 65th Streets)
DRINK: In Style at the Manhattan Cricket Club
You don’t need to know anything about throwing a googly ball to enjoy a cocktail with an enticing name (a Russian vodka–fueled Bonfire of the Calamities, anyone?) at this luxe location. 226 West 79th Street (between Amsterdam Avenue and Broadway)
