    Personally, I favor Cabana Carioca on W.45th (cheap, delicious, filling Brazilian) or Sapporo on W.49th (almost as cheap, delicious, not so filling noodle-soup Japanese) depending on where the theater is and what I feel like eating. Virgil's is good too. (I don't like combining fancy dining with seeing a play -- why feel rushed?)

        I like upscale as well as the next guy but have been
        very disappointed with the likes of Osteria al Doge
        and Coco Teatro.

        Nowadays, when I head to the theater, I keep it
        simple. Pulled pork sandwich and hush puppies at
        Virgil's Real BBQ. I was just there again last week,
        perhaps the fourth time in the past three months.
        Sure it's noisy, sure the food is relatively highly
        caloric, but it's always realiable, the service is
        friendly and it won't cost you dearly. And, there
        isn't a vegetarian in sight!
