Upscale pre-theatre dining walking distance from Irish Repertory at 132 W.22nd

Husband and I taking my sister in-law and her hubby to dinner and the theatre mid November. Looking for nice prix fix (or not) dinner not too far from the theatre. All cuisines loved, athough the in-law hub doesn't eat fish. Ideas?

  1. The area around the theater tends to be more arty/trendy than upscale. Periyali is a good Greek rest. but exactly upscale imo.

    If you're willing to walk a bit, places like Union Square Cafe, Gotham Bar & Grill and Gramercy Tavern are probably closer to what you want.

    1. I highly recommend Allegretti, on 22nd, b/t 5th & 6th (closer to 6th), which puts it one block from the theater, which is b/t 6th & 7th. The Provencal-style French cuisine is superb, the wine list is excellent, service is cordial and attentive, and the ambiance is lovely. In addition to the a la carte menu, there is a 3-course dinner prix-fixe for $39.
