THE METROPOLITAN OPERA’S gRAND TIER Restaurant Opens ALONG WITH A new season of american ballet theatre

Introduction of $49 / $24 Prix Fixe Menus and “Verona Dinner”

Coinciding with American Ballet Theatre’s spring season opening on May 18th, The Grand Tier Restaurant at the Metropolitan Opera House will offer Florentine-inspired menus from renowned Chef Umberto Montano of Alle Murate. And in a nod to the current economic climate, The Grand Tier Restaurant will offer prix-fixe menus this season for the first time, priced at $49 for adults, $24 for children.

Montano’s cuisine will be available exclusively in New York at The Grand Tier Restaurant through the rest of the summer. Montano collaborated with Executive Chef Jeff Raider to create the menus, which blend sophisticated Italian cuisine with age-old techniques.

In a repeat performance, Chef Raider is continuing last year’s successful dessert and ballet pairings– desserts that match the performances. The light-as-air confections reference and pay homage to ballets including Romeo and Juliet, Sylvia, Swan Lake and Le Corsaire.
