Early Father's Day Dinner Near the Pavillion Movie Theater...?

Seeking recs for an nice early dinner within close proximity for the theater. ...
Open to cuisines...and price points. Doesn't need to be child friendly cause (YAY) I got a babysitter!
Thank you so much!

  1. Fonda, Beer Table, and Brook-vin: all on 7th Ave between about 12th and 15th Sts. (Theater is PPW and 15th.) Provini on 8th and 13th (?) looks nice, but I haven't eaten there.

    1. Le P'tit Paris Bistro is a few blocks down Prospect Park West. Delicious and unpretentious French food.

      1. May be too late getting to this, but for something a little more elegant on Father's Day I'd choose 12th Street Bar and Grill over any of the above. The food is very good, if not terribly unexpected, french/american, but it's a wonderful, comfortable space, very attentive but low-key service, and somehow I feel like white linen tablecloths and a well-made cocktail should win out on Father's Day over something less formal.

        That said, I have nothing but good things to say about Fonda, Beer Table and Brook-vin. Well, one thing: Beer Table doesn't have a full dinner menu, so I'd check out their menu online first to make sure it's what you're looking for.

        1. I'd second Fonda--you'll have a fun, reasonably priced Mexican meal there. If the guest of honor is more of a foodie, consider Applewood.
