Chef Andy D’Amico (Nice Matin) explores the interplay of French and Italian influences along the Mediterranean at Nizza (Italian for Nice). The sleek, mod space is an ideal pre- or posttheater spot, provided you don’t spend too much time navigating the extensive menu. Sharing a handful of dishes—like socca, a thick chickpea crêpe flavored with sage leaves, and pastas like pansotti triangles filled with herbs and walnuts—is the way to go. Return for dessert when the curtain falls: We liked the buttery chocolate-orange crostada.
