Going to concert at Madison Square Garden and looking
for a good restaurant for pre-concert. Any ideas?

    Try Tir Na Nog a fun upscale Irish Pub/restaurant.
    Chef worked for Charlie Palmer the food is delicious
    especially the seafood

      I'd head over to Ninth and go to either the Pakistani place at 478 (near 37th St.) or, if you're more in the mood for Mexican, Los Dos Rancheros at 509 (38th). (I'm assuming you want good food, not ambience, the latter not being much in evidence at either.)

          The best restaurant I've EVER found anywhere near
          Madison Square Garden is Tupelo Grill, a new steakhouse
          with a kitchen under the great Neal Myers (who brought
          Tatou to such heights, and who even taught the folks at
          Ben Benson's a thing or two). The place is very roomy,
          smart, and everything is deeply delicious and
          memorable. Give it a whirl!

            on this tupelo grill...

            is it the kind of place you can go with some kids and
            some non-carnivores (for, say, lunch on a friday)?
