Where to eat before seeing Wicked?

We're going to the 7pm Wicked show on 12/28 and I'm overwhelmed with the restaurant choices. I think we're probably going to want something prefix and my husband prefers food that's a little more traditional (or maybe "American" for lack of a better word). Typically he orders things like steak, pastas, chicken, burgers, sandwiches, etc. I'm leaning towards Italian or French but I'm open to pretty much anything up to about $45/pp. Any suggestions?

  1. Marseille has steak and a burger on the menu (although I've had neither) as well as more interesting (to me) options.

    1. Marseille also has a prix fixe menu (note spelling, by the way: It means "fixed price," though interestingly enough, in France, it's just called a "menu," as opposed to "la carte," which is what WE call the menu!) at $35, and it looks damn good to me. Have a look (requires downloading a PDF):

      1. We like Thalia - less than half a block from the theater and has lost of choice, including a good burger.

            How was Natsumi? Japanese/Italian fusion place, right? I haven't heard much about it.

              Natsumi is a Chinese restaurant with great atmosphere that has a Japanese menu. I would get something like chicken terriyaki there if I couldn't go to a real Japanese restaurant. IMHO
