Spicy food near Broadway shows?

Piranha Aug 5, 2011 03:49 PM

hi! I'm in town for a theatre weekend and am looking for a place to eat between a matinee and evening show on Saturday. I love spicy food, especially Thai, so I know I'm in the right area, but I have no idea where to go. I'd welcome suggestions.

    If you like Chinese, Szechuan Gourmet is fabulously spicy. There are two locations, one on W 39th Street, and the other on W 56th Street.

      The 39th St. location is much, much better.

      Try either a newish spot, Pure Thai Shophouse, or try Wondee, where you can order from the "secret" spicier menu.

      Wondee Siam
      792 9th Ave, New York, NY 10019

      Pure Thai Cookhouse
