Theater District Restaurants
Would appreciate recommendations for restaurants in theater area that are truly good and not going to break the bank. We go to shows quite frequently and always seem to end up at the same places. Type of food is not important - we eat everything.
RGR - thanks for the suggestion - we're new to Chowhounds. Restaurants we've been to several times are: Becco, Thalia, Pongsri Thai, Dervish Turkish, Chez Josephine and Firebird. Nothing wrong with these - just looking for some new ideas and recommendations from people who know their stuff.
Definitely helpful to have that list. Here are some places I like in the Theater District area, all of which have very good food and pleasing atmospherics:
Roberto Passon - Italian http://www.robertopasson.com
Cascina - Italian http://www.cascina.com
dbBistro Moderne - French http://www.danielnyc.com/dbbistro

West Bank Cafe - New American http://www.westbankcafe.com
Uncle Nick's - Greek See menupage.com for details
We too always end up at the same places. Last week, we tried Tintol, a Portugese tapas restaurant on 46th/6-7. http://www.tintol.net/index2.htm. We had a short rib special and a tuna special, stuffed calamari, spinach with pine nuts and raisins, fries with paprika, the mixed dessert. Everything we ate was exceptional. The bartender was very helpful with choosing a wine. The services was friendly. We found it to be fun and a good value.
