Jay,

Nice to hear from you! Ironically I was just looking at making a reservation at Jean Robert's Table for next Saturday - we are going to the Arnoff.

All,
I've already checked and we can't get into Metropole or Boca for dinner before our show. Any other suggestions for someplace downtown on a theatre night?
Thanks,
Deb

My suggestion would have been to see Book of Mormon in May in Louisville . . . better seats, less expensive, and your choice of good restaurants! Oh, well . . .

We always have a good meal at the Precinct (sp?).

Andrew,
Thanks for the advice, but the goal of this was to have a relaxing, romantic getaway with my husband. Staying in Louisville was not what we wanted to do....

I'll checkout Precinct.

We weren't too impressed with the bar and thought the Louisville version much nicer. Dinner was at Jean Robert's Table, which we enjoyed, but the pacing and timing were very "French".


I completely agree regarding the bar. The physical bar is pretty cool - very, very long, but the bar area was cramped. The bar at Proof is far superior.

For white tablecloth style, Orchids at Palm Court is supposed to be good. Local 127 also gets good reviews.

The Precinct is fine, but is another in the Jeff Ruby steakhouse empire.

Also, I think it was mentioned earlier in the thread, but Nada is very good, and very close to the Arnoff.

Deb - how was Local 127?
