chowhound worthy eats near sanctuary hotel (132 w 47 st)
We are going to be in New York for our honeymoon, staying at the sanctuary hotel (brand new). We will be going to the theatre, so we need some pre theatre suggestions (under $50 pp food only) preferabally near our hotel. Breakfast spots in our area? We have dinner reservations at Locanda Verde and Wd-50 for our 2 non theatre nights, but we need restaurants for 2 theatre nights. Love most types of food other than indian.

Pre-theater: Marseille (44th & 9th), Blue Fin (47th & B'way). All menus available at menupages.com

DB Bistro's pre-theater menu fits that budget.

Oceana, on 49th St., just off the corner of 6th Av., is a fish/seafood-focused restaurant. The food is superb, service is friendly and attentive, and the large space has very attractive decor. Their pre-theater 3-course menu is $49.

dbBistro Moderne, on 44th, b/t 5th & 6th, is one of 4-star Chef Daniel Boulud's restaurants. This one focuses on contemporary French bistro cuisine. The food is delicious, service is efficient, and the ambiance is pleasant. (I prefer the rear dining room to the front.) They offer a pre-theater 3-course prix-fixe for $45.

While I like Marseille, imo, the quality of the cuisine at these two is far superior. I have not been to Blue Fin.
Best wishes on your impending marriage!

For breakfast, if you go to Rockefeller Center you have a few options. 'wichcraft does good breakfast sandwiches and has a great sticky bun alongside some other pastries. Bouchon Bakery just opened as well as Jacques Torres.
If you want to combine something more "touristy" with your coffee and pastry, I would go to the location of Joe the Art of Coffee inside of Grand Central, and pick up coffee & some Doughnut Plant doughnuts and/or some Ceci-Cela croissants.
A little bit further away is Amy's Bread (9th Ave and 47th), one of the better bakeries in town.
