Kips Bay Movie + Dinner

Search reveals a year has gone by since the last query on this topic and I'm heading there with a good food friend to see Scoop. Is there anything suitable for the heat wave and champagne taste on a beer budget or need we stroll down to Shake Shack? Chowhounds have warned against Totonno's and rec'd the Ale House--is there a fresh kitchen in the area? Many thx.

  1. how about Sip Sak? It's not too far (2nd betw. 49th & 50th) and their food is great.

        Thank you so much, I forgot about Turkish Kitchen--a big favorite from days gone by for the dumplings in yogurt-based sauce and the wonderful hosts, service and ambience. Hooray!

          It would've been my choice too.

      2. I'm a fan of Waterfront especially for the proximity to the theater. I'd also recommend Ali Baba for Turkish on 34th betw. 2nd & 3rd, if you like that sort of food.
