Hi
a bunch of us are going to show this evening and since its nice weather I am looking for a great place to eat outside mid town on the east side - the plan was to catch a cab over to broadway afterwards.

Any suggestions - any time of food, just looking for sidewalk dinning in the east side 50s

          I've never actually eaten there but Angelos is an Italian/pizza place that has outdoor seating. Seems to get good reviews and it's on 2nd in the mid-50's.

            Not sidewalk dining, but Pampano has a lovely terrace on the 2nd floor - E. 49th.

              Totally agree! The two times we've been to Pampano, we've sat on that charming terrace. And the fact that the food is so delicious is a giant plus!
