Going to Carnegie Hall - Looking for Dinner options

DebW60 Oct 29, 2011 09:31 AM

Hi, A group of us (ok a bus load of 45) are going to a concert at Carnegie Hall. This is a vast group of people, ages and some teens. We will have a couple of hours before the concert to have dinner. We are not familiar with the area, so we need a place for dinner that can appeal to all....especially picky teens. And we need to know if they will need reservations. Not everyone will go to the same place, but I would like to offer people a variety of places ahead of time, so we know exactly what we are doing, once we arrive. We are looking forward to this adventure...we are coming from NH. Thank you!

    There are a couple of decent delicatessens near Carnegie Hall, appropriate for teens. Perhaps you can make a group arrangement:
    Carnegie Deli
    Stage Deli
    For your more upscale crowd, try the Bar at the Modern. Book in advance.

      You'd do well to read through the "Manhattan Board Discussions" that are listed directly beneath these posts, Deb -better yet, enlist members of your busload to look at the research contained within them. Together, the collective wisdom there should give you a clearer sense of what's in the neighbourhood, and where might appeal to whom.
      Enjoy the show!

        So you are talking about an 8pm concert on a weekday?
