I need a late night spot for after Book of Mormon

In December 4 of us will be going to see Book of Mormon. I believe the theater is on 49th and 7th. So far I see that John's Pizza, Marseille and Carnegie Deli will be open. Any other spots come to mind? It could be burgers, it could be fine dining. I believe the show lets out at 10:30pm.

Carnegie Deli
854 7th Ave, New York, NY 10019

630 Ninth Avenue, New York, NY 10036

John's Pizzeria
260 W 44th St, New York, NY 10036

      1. The Eugene O'Neill Theatre is on West 49th between Broadway and 8th, closer to 8th Avenue. December 4th is a Sunday, which may be more difficult, as many of the fine dining destinations aren't open that day; lots of restaurants also close earlier on Sundays.

        When we saw the matinee a few weeks ago, we didn't actually get out onto the street until closer to 4:45pm (it started at 2pm).

        So really you'll need somewhere open past 11pm, which is tough in that neighborhood. Maybe Totto Ramen or Casellula? Can you go to a different neighborhood?

        I would avoid the John's in Times Square, it's not as good as the downtown one.

        401 W 52nd St, New York, NY 10019

        Totto Ramen
        366 W 52nd St, New York, NY 10019

          There are very few shows that have evening performances on Sunday. Thus, restaurants in the Theater District that are open on Sunday cater to those dining after matinees and see no reason to stay open late. But what's more of a problem is that they don't stay open late mid-week, when there are evening performances and people might want to eat post-theater.

        2. Would you consider leaving the immediate neighborhood?

          1. I think there is a misunderstanding of natsellspots' post. I first read it the same way as kathryn & RGR, but when reread, it says "In December, four of us will be going....." . So I think nsp needs to clarify the day of the week .

              I actually didn't read the original post that closely but rather answered based on what kathryn wrote. So, good job on re-reading, boredough! I agree about the need for day of the week to be clarified.
