Looking for Restaurant in the West 50's

eva Apr 13, 2001 01:43 PM

Am going to the theater on Friday (53 St. & Bway) to see Blast and would like to find a nice restaurant in the area for dinner beforehand. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I had a good meal at Hell's Kitchen recently. It's on 9th between 46th and 47th. If you want something closer to the theater, there's Judson Grill.

    There are lots of choices. Maybe you should indicate what you're looking for.

      Not sure what you are looking for, but there is a cute little Italian restaurant called Anna's on 9th Avenue between 51st and 52nd. It looks like a hole in the wall, but the food is all fresh, well-prepared and reasonably priced.

        I agree Anna's is a under-rated great small restaurant.
        It can be difficult at times to get a table.

        Grand Sichuan International on 50th and 9th.

        Not your typical pre-theatre restaurant but its a authentic chinese fave with the people on this board, including El Perro Grande.
