Any decent restaurants near Madison Sq Garden?

In walking distance for a pre show drink/appetizer?

  1. Keane's Chop House. 36th and 6th. Great for dinner as well.

      their bar room is just awesome...great scotch, great food.

    2. Believe it or not (and I was in utter disbelief until I found myself there), Stout NYC has great bar food and terrific pizza in a neat atmosphere.
      33rd between 6th & 7th.

        Stout does have really good bar food! I was just about to suggest the same thing. The burger there is really satisfyingly good.

        I also recommend Korea Town and particularly Kum Gang San on the north side of 32nd St, between 5th and 6th Avenue if you're in the mood for something exotic.

        There's a spot I haven't tried yet, but that's on my list for the next time I'm at MSG: The Australian on 38th between 5th & 6th. The menu looks hearty and just odd enough to be interesting.
