Theater District

I am taking my 13 year old to see Wicked at the Gershwin. She's never been to New York, and is really looking forward to it. Neither of us is a stranger to good restaurants (Chez Panisse, Slanted Door, Nobu, Babbo, Zuni, etc), but we have only a short time, and are staying at 6th Ave and West 53rd and need lunch/brunch/dinner suggestions. Any ideas?

I'm thinking: Bar Bolud, Bar Room at the Modern...etc.

  1. Since you'll be in the Theater district before your show you should try Marseille for dinner, great food and a nice atmosphere.

    1. havent been in awhile but orso is so good

      1. Both Marseille and Orso are among my favorites. Also Vice Versa.

          This is NYC... Why not try something a little more interesting? You don't have to spend a lot of money to have a good meal.

          1. Lunch -- Saigon 48 just east of 8th Avenue on 48th Street puts you very close to the theater. It's not expensive and it's quite good. For breakfast or even a light lunch go to Amy's Bread on 9th Avenue -- they bake their bread on premises and everything is just wonderful. If you're seeing an afternoon show you don't want to go overboard during lunch or you're risk getting sleepy, very sleepy.
