Non-Italian lunch in theater district
Chowsters - I need your help.
I've searched the archives and the same names keep coming up for good places to eat before or after a show. Some of them look really good - I'd love to try db Bistro or Eleven Madison Park, especially at their lunch prices - and the rest seem to all be Italian.
However, we're looking for a place that's more casual for a quick sit-down lunch before a Wednesday matinee that's NOT Italian.
Only requirements: good food, casual, within 10 blocks theater district (specifically w. 48th between 6th and 7th) and NOT Italian.
Prix-Fixe or ala carte is fine - $20-30 per person.
Hi: I work near W. 48th and we usually go to Saigon 48 for their quick service and lunch specials (starting at 6.95). I have not had a bad meal there yet. The service is super-fast. I like the portions, I am a big eater and I never leave hungry. They also have a bar so you can get drinks if you like. Enjoy your show.

We wound up going to Aoki (Japanese), right next to Saigon 48, for their lunch special. Two rolls for $9 and a really big bento box for $11. Total came to $26, including tip.
Food's very good, service is quick, casual - and just a two block walk to the theater.
