A cavernous restaurant that matches the visual glamour of the opera house in which it resides.. In Short Upstairs in the esteemed Brooklyn Academy of Music's headquarters is a fancy eatery where enormous windows and vaulted ceilings maintain the institution's high art standards. Yet a mixture of laidback lounge furniture and more conventional dining tables softens any inherent formality, as do weekend performances by up-and-coming performers from a variety of disciplines. The menu, which changes seasonally, shows both regional and international influences.
Movie and a dinner.
Went to see a movie at BAM and stayed for the dinner special ($21 prix fixe, $18 w/ student ID for glass of wine, soup or salad, choice of three entrees, and a big slice of Junior's Cheesecake)...it's an interesting space, and the food was solid -- better than the reviews here suggested, especially for the value. I'll be back.
