Looking for Sat. Lunch in Theater District

Don't want brunch unless I cannot find anything close to West 45th Street. Seeing Vertical Hour and we would like to have a nice lunch before the matinee next Sat. Thanks for any suggestions. I know Junior's is right there, but wanted something nicer. Have been to Bond 45, DB and Angus McIndoe which are the closest I can think of in the neighborhood. I really can't be more than 2-3 blocks away from theater. Any cuisine is fine. Thanks for any ideas.

  1. Not very fancy, but I like B Smiths on, I believe, 44th st...

    1. Tintol, Kellari (new-ish Greek) and Dervish are all in a 2-3 block range.

        1. "Vertical Hour" is playing at the Music Box Theatre, which is on 45th, b/t B'way & 8th Av. There are good options on 9th Av., which means not having to cross over to the east side B'way, as is the case with some of the other suggestions. Two of our favorites that are closest to 45th St:

          Cascina, b/t 45th & 46th Sts. Delicious Italian food. Very efficient service. Pleasant, rustic ambiance.

          Marseille, on the corner of 9th & 44th - Excellent French/Mediterranean cuisine. Good service. Very attractive brasserie decor.

          Enjoy the show and Bon Appetit!
