Theater District Tom (Friday) Night

I am going to see a show with my mother tomorrow night. Wanted to try Becco, but called and was told that they have no tables and that walking in might not be successful. Any other ideas? Good food (but not too meat-heavy and no Indian/Asian), not too pricey, can get in around 630 or so and be done in an hour, etc. Thanks.

  1. I live Vice Versa. Italian, modern, excellent staff

    1. Marseille ($35.00 3-course prix fixe) 44th & 9th.

        1. Imo, it's just as well that you couldn't snag a table at Becco because there is far superior pasta to be had elsewhere in the Theater District.

          Trattoria Trecolori, on 47th St., b/t B'way & 8th Av., is a favorite of mine and many other Hounds. The homestyle Italian fare is delicious, and they do an exceptional job with pastas. The decor is quite attractive, and tables are comfortably spaced (unlike at Becco, where seating is sardine-tight!). The friendly, efficient servers and the kitchen are very adept at getting theater-goers out quickly, so you should have no difficulty being done in an hour. Prices are moderate.

          Enjoy the show and Buon Apetito!

            If you decide on Vice Versa (a good choice), make sure to tell them you need to be out in an hour. I usually do a 6-6:15 when going to the theater afterwards.

          2. Vice Versa(cool). Osteria Del Circo(authentic), Db bistro, Milos(awesome seafood selection)
