We ate at the terrace restaurant which is always a treat. There is another self serve restaurant at the terrace level which is quite nice as well. Both are aware that you are trying to get to a show so the service is geared to making sure you get out in time.

The weather was light rain, but mild. I wore a sweater, dress shirt & tie with dress pants and shoes. Saw other people dressed casual and some really dressy. Broad selection.

The dancing was superb - as always.. The new ballets allowed the dancers to showcase their talents - especially the men.The third ballet (Wheldon) was my favorite, and both new ones will surely become a lasting part of the NYC repertoire.

The NYC Ballet is absolutely fabulous. I didn't love the "West Side Story" piece as much as the true ballet ones
