Looking for good food and/or wine in theater district or Hell's Kitchen

I will being seeing a play on W42nd and Ninth Ave. I need to find a good restaurant (cheap ethnic with exceptionally good food would be great) or a place that has a good bar with delish apps and geek wines by the glass. Please help!

    We've always had great luck with both at Gallo Nero (http://www.gallonerony.com/). It's at 44th and 9th and has served as one of our most consistent hidden gems in the city for a couple of years now. Food is great, prices are even better and reservations are pretty easy to come by.

        Had a good dinner at West Bank Cafe on Sat. night after theater. The food is good, service is good and lots of different choices. We shared 4 apps and a dessert.

          Ditto on both Gallo Nero (Italian wine bar with good food), and West Bank Cafe (contemporary American restaurant with consistently interesting - and good - wine by the glass selections). Both are in your immediate neighborhood, and both offer good value at reasonable prices.
