Dinner Suggestions near City Winery

Headed up from Philadelphia in a few weeks to see a show at City Winery (155 Varick at Vandam). We would love to get a few suggestions for dinner before the show. Thanks!

  1. La Sirene, for excellent rustic French bistro food, may be close enough.

    Locanda Verde, for the more stylish ambiance,but solid Italian food.

    La Sirene
    558 Broome Street, New York, NY 10013

      Second Locanda Verde and La Sirene.

      I'd also recommend Boqueria at 171 Spring Street and Blue Ribbon at 97 Sullivan Street.

      La Sirene
      558 Broome Street, New York, NY 10013

      171 Spring St, New York, NY 10012

      Locanda Verde
      377 Greenwich St, New York, NY 10013

    2. Shorty's .32, 199 Prince St. Braised short ribs with elbow macaroni, roasted cod with gruyere broth, and poached shrimp with tandoori butter, apples and almonds are all lovely dishes.

        I have to second Shorty’s .32 – a fantastic neighborhood place with truly outstanding food. Shorty (the owner/chef) is always in the house which guarantees you are getting a great dish. I agree that the short ribs and mac are awesome, try the scallop dish as well. Really all the dishes are great, enjoy!

          We have reservations at Shorty's .32. Looking forward to it! Is there a great spot for a pre-dinner cocktail?
