Event Recap: On Tap at Lyric Opera’s New Restaurants

Two new restaurants are slated to open in the Civic Opera House on September 30. On the ground floor, a former bank will house the Sarah and Peer Pedersen Room. Spruced up with Art Deco flourishes, the 72-seat venue—named after Peer Pedersen, a member of the opera’s board of directors— will offer a menu of fare from Jewell Events Catering. Selections will include Fontina-cheese-and-spinach-stuffed chicken breast, sliced bistro steak with chive mashed potatoes and Cabernet sauce, and salmon with Asian rice noodles. With a video monitor on its north wall, the venue will accommodate receptions for 100.

On the building’s third-level dress circle, the more casual Florian Opera Bistro will display photographs and costumes from past Lyric opera productions. Jewell’s menu of seasonal fare will include selections such as open-faced grilled vegetable sandwiches, Oriental smoked chicken salads, and sausage and tomato tarts. The restaurant will seat 136 and host receptions for 150.
