ISO Rest. Nr Village VII Theater (3rd ave/11th st)

rfelicello Apr 27, 2007 03:23 PM

I know it's late, but I'm looking for a recommendation for a decent place to eat tonight either before or after a 9:00 pm show at the theater. American/continental, Indian, Italian, or Chinese are all good options. We're looking for something at a moderate price point. Thanks for your suggestions!

    Cacio e Pepe, on 2nd Av., b/t 11th & 12th Sts. Very good food. Cozy setting.

      Thanks, RGR. I love Cacio e Pepe. However, we were there just last week. Do you have any other suggestions near there? Thanks!

        Cafe Deville is on 3rd, near 13th. We've only been there once, for lunch, and I thought the food was pretty good. But that was quite a long time ago, so I have no idea what the quality is like now.


        Centosette is on the corner of 2nd & 10th. I've never been but have heard good reports.

            If you go to either one, I hope you'll report back.

            Enjoy the show and Bon Appetit!

            I seem to remember going to Centosette once and finding it underwhelming, but I'm not sure. Who's given the good reports?

            I would have suggested Col Legno on 9th between 2nd and 3rd. Where did you go, rfelicello, and how was it?

              Cafe Deville is merely "eh" in my book. I also find the outdoor seating area to be tight quarters, and too close to the sidewalk.

              I've had Centosette's pizza once and it was pretty good, and in a similar style to, say, Luzzo's.

                We went to Cafe Deville but had to wait so long for our food to come out that we did not have time to eat it before the movie! Thankfully, the manager agreed not to charge us for it. But it meant we ended up filling up on popcorn and eating cereal when we got home!

                  Sorry to hear that about Cafe Deville. Obviously, not a place to go when you need quick service.
