PLAN DATE: WEDS / SEP. 11
The Upper West Side is all about understated class. Larger sidewalks, taller buildings…and sophisticated A.F. date nights. We’re beginning tonight with dinner at Atlantic Grill. This seafood-focused restaurant is part industrial-warehouse, part rich family hangout, but most of all, a crowd-favorite before catching a masterpiece at Lincoln Center. With Atlantic Grill’s white tablecloths vibes, high-quality seafood towers, and impeccable service expect the bill to be hefty, but worth it.
Next, you’re seeing a movie. Casual, right? Wrong. Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall plays host to an experience you can’t miss: famous movies screened alongside a live score by the New York Philharmonic. The movie will play over a towering screen right above the orchestra. The series is called Art of the Score, and strangely enough, the artistic director is Alec Baldwin. Check their calendar here to see what’s on the big screen (alongside the big band) this season.
