Get dressed up in your holiday best and head to Lincoln Center to watch the New York City Ballet perform the beloved story of The Nutcracker. Spend the evening watching George Balanchine bring this classic to life, telling the story of a little girl named Clara and her dreams of being whisked away to the land of sweets. As the clock chimes midnight, a brave young girl turns the tide in a battle between toy soldiers and mischievous mice, and a blizzard of ballerinas reveals a wonderful world of confections. A quick trip on the 1 subway line from The Skylark, this beautiful and whimsical performance will leave you, and your sweet tooth, wanting more. While you can’t find the Sugarplum Fairy on our menu, our warm cookie skillets will still do the trick.
