Pre theater greek (or) and post theater desserts/sweets?
Help! We're going to be in the city for a few days this week. Going to show on Friday night. Looking for $20-35 per person pre-theater dinner (had Uncle Nick's last time - it was great, may go there again, but wondering if there's anything else we shouldn't miss?). After the show, would like to get dessert / something sweet on the way back to hotel in FiDi, so open to just about anything... Suggestions? thank you very much!

We've enjoyed Kellari Taverna, on 44th, b/t 5th & 6th. If you budget is for food only, they're participating n Restaurant Week, i.e., $35 prix-fixe at dinner. Here's the menu: http://kellari.us/special_menus.php

Molyvos, on 7th Av., b/t 55th & 56th, is another favorite. Their regular pre-theater prix-fixe is $37.

We had a pleasant dinner at Dafni a few months ago. Depending on where you are going to the theater, it may not be convenient since it's on 42nd & 8th. If you order carefully, you could probably stay under $35.

For post-theatre dessert, you have tons of options between the theatre district and financial district.
Just off the top of my head:
- Kyotofu for Asian-inspired desserts
- the Magnolia Bakery branch near Rockefeller Center, which stays open late (midnight on weekends, 10pm on weekdays)
- Stopping in at a nicer restaurant like the Bar Room at the Modern for some desserts
- Chikalicious Dessert Bar in the East Village
- Spot in the East Village
- Otto near Washington Square Park
- Gelato / ice cream crawl on Bleecker St with Cones, L'Arte de Gelato, Grom
- Goat milk froyo and soft serve from Victory Garden

I haven't been there in awhile, but Avra has had one of the better pre-theater dinners I've had in NYC. It's a bargain compared to their regular menu.
