Casual, non-touristy spot for dinner/drinks near Radio City?
I tried to do a search for previous posts but couldn't find an up-to-date post with quite what I'm looking for... So, does anyone have any suggestions for a casual, non-touristy spot near Radio City Music Hall for a quick bite to eat and maybe some drinks?
I know it's smack in the middle of Rock ctr, but i quite like Morell's Wine bar. The crowd on weekdays tends to be more sophisticated (probably the local financial/publishing/legal folk). They had some nice plates, perfect to share.
About 7 blocks away, at Bryant Park, there's the bryant park grill, with its huge outdoor patio - which has drinks and food (although i can't vouch for the food). This weather is perfect for it.
Otherwise, I'd go to hell's kitchen 9th avenue area for the restaurant/bars around there - Vintage, eatery and vynyl come to mind.
you're kind of right in the heart of a very touristy area...
maybe an Irish Pub? I like Maggies on 47th between 5th/madison
For drinks, Park Blue on 58th between 6th and 7th. Great wine selection and some pretty delicious small plates (though it's been a year since I've been).
Heartland Brewery on 51st just west of 6th Ave. isn't actually that much of a tourist hell hole. Most entrees are $15 or less. Big beer selection (obviously). You can't do better for location.
