Help with this scenario?

I have a few precious nights in NYC before my husband and 10-year-old son join me. I'm seeing Book of Mormon on a Friday night and want to have a late solo dinner somewhere between the theater and where I'm staying at 101st & Riverside.
I'm up for almost anything but it should be somewhere where a solo diner can be comfortable. I'd prefer a lively atmosphere and not somewhere stuffy/quiet.
thanks for any tips!

  1. GastroArte (formerly Graffit) on 69th just east of Broadway - have tapas at the bar.

    141 W 69th St, New York, NY 10023

    1. My choice would be same neighborhood, Broadway at 64th, Fiorello's. You can usually get a spot at the bar which faces an amazing selection of antipasti.

      Cafe Fiorello
      1900 Broadway, New York, NY 10023

        I'd recommend Boulud Sud over Fiorello's, but that's just me...

      2. Price point? You'll get the most responses if you let us know how much, per person, for food - excluding drinks and lthe almost 27% that needs figuring for tax and tip.
