Pre-Theater, Not Italian

  • s
  • 2

Going to a Sat. night performance on 44th St. and we are looking for a pre-theater meal that's not Italian. While it would be easiest to stay in the theater district we don't have to. One member of the group really isn't a "foodie" so we are looking for something that's not to extravagant in its cuisine. It just seems like there a TON of Italian places listed as recommendations, we were curious to see what else is out there.
