Dinner near Carnegie Hall

redygirlnyc Mar 26, 2007 04:08 PM

We are looking for a good dinner recommendation (around 7pm, pre-10pm show at Zankel Hall). We are celebrating mother's birthday - looking for something mid-price range.

    I really enjoy Abboccato on 56th Street. It's Italian with a twist and isa great, sophisticated setting.

    It has a sister restaurant which is Greek - Molyvos, which is on 7th avenue between 55th and 56th which I also like a lot. The grilled whole branzini there is very good.

      not sure if it's mid or a bit higher, but trattoria del-arte, right across the street. and be sure to get the artichokes -- ethereal!

        Trattoria Del Arte works for me. Also Redeye Grill but this can be hectic (not that TDA isn't though).

        Second Molyvos - Milos would also be good.

          Amalia is great. We went to City Center and had a fantastic pre-theater meal there. Highly recommended. I posted about it.

            Yes, Amalia would be an excellent choice! It's on 55th, b/t B'way & 7th. Their website is still under construction, but the menu is on Menupages.
