Looking for a good restaurant pre or post theater near Times Square. Was considering Bond 45 or Sardi's, want something pretty nice but not over the top. Suggestions? Thanks.

    We usually go to Marseille on the corner of 44th & 9th.

      Glass House Tavern is pretty good, but they can be S-L-O-W at dinner time pre-theater. REALLY SLOW.

        We had a terrific meal at Bond 45 this past weekend. And they did inquire if we had theatre tickets.

        Bond is not bad, but my choice for Italian in the theater district is Orso. More intimate and more interesting food. Marseille as mentioned by Jane A. above is also a great choice. I could not imagine going to Sardi's. I would also suggest after-theater rather than pre-theater as it is much less hectic.

          I also prefer Orso over Bond.
