Spicy food near Broadway shows?

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.

  1. 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
    766 9th Ave, New York, NY 10019

    1. 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.

      Szechuan Gourmet
      21 W 39th St, New York, NY 10018

      Szechuan Gourmet
      244 W 56th St, New York, NY 10019

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