damissuus and I will be in NY on a cruise arriving and departing 10/15.
We plan to see the matinee' of "Follies" on Saturday, Oct 15. So.......... Any suggestions for lunch spots close to the Marquis theater.
We both are mid-westerners by birth, and Southwesterners by choice. But we would love to have the "NY experience", suggestions. Price and cuisine "NOT A BIG DEAL" for the right spot.
OK, New Yorkers, give us your best shot.
Keens - cab ride away, 30s West Side, so maybe too tenson-provoking that way. Food excellent, NYC atmosphere terrific. There are so many aspects to the NYC experience - as some other posters have responded in terms of exootic/diverse; modern; outstanding food. Personally, I don't experience Keen's food as outstanding but delicious and an oldtime atmosphre. Not cheap, but what is here?

Szechuan Gourmet, Ma Peche, are both good lunch options as well. If the new Ippudo's line is too long, Menchanko-Tei's Tonkotsu Ramen (aka Hakata Ramen) always hits the spot.
For high(er) end Italian seafood and seafood pasta, Marea is wonderful. I had my best meal of the year thus far there. Heck, Michael White's other high end Italian restaurant, Ai Fiori, is also excellent.
Seasonal is another fantastic restaurant serving high end modern Austrian cuisine.

Lots of good walking distance options that are worth investigating, including db bistro moderne, aureole, oceana, bar room at the modern (a little longer walk), nougatine (a short cab ride). For more casual, joe allen is right down the street.

if the show is at 2pm, you might consider a light lunch before the show and an early dinner after, if time allows. if so, there's a Shake Shack nearby - queue the haters. otherwise, you might look to do brunch at Marseille on 9th Ave.
Oh, oh...the new Ippudo should be open by then. that's an option!
