Pre-theater dinner for 11 - Saturday night

We have tickets to Wicked on Saturday, 6/23 and we have a party of 11. I would like to make reservations now, since I am sure a party of 11 will not be easy to seat without them. Do you have any suggestions for a nice restaurant in the area? I would prefer Italian, American/Continental, etc. Not too worried about price, but don't want anything overly pretentious. Just good food, atmosphere and close to theater. Thanks!

  1. Carmine's is an Italian red sauce place serving family style platters in the west 40s. It sounds appropriate for a group of 11 looking for theater district Italian.

    1. I think West Bank Cafe, on 42nd St., b/t 9th & 10th Avs., could handle a group of 11. Excellent New American cuisine, good service, and pleasant atmospherics.

      Trattoria Trecolori, a favorite of mine and many other Hounds, has finally re-opened in their new location, on 47th St., b/t B'way & 8th Av.. While I haven't been back yet, the Italian food they serve has always been well-prepared and tasty. I'm sure they can handle a group your size.
