We went to dinner at Sbrocco before the theater and enjoyed it greatly. The meal was delicious and the wait staff made sure we enjoyed it but also were out in time for the show.

This is a great spot in the Court Avenue district. Nice wine lists with flights available. Liked the "social plates" side of the menu, get a few to share. Choices were excellently prepared, applewood smoked deviled eggs, scallops and sweetbreads with oysters. Deserts were also...More
