West Village - quick and early dinner before concert

rmbelson Jan 2, 2012 08:28 AM

Have to be at the Blue Note at 7:15 next Sunday to get a good table -- and want a good, not too expensive bite beforehand. Wife is non-meat eater -- fish OK, wine with dinner is preferable. But we probably won't get to our table much before 6. Is this possible? Prefer non-Italian, but love all kinds of ethnic food, southern cooking. I was thinking something like Mama's Food Shop -- but it's too far east. Thanks for any suggestions.

      Time it right and you can get in a quick run to ino at 21 Bedford. Plenty of non-meat dishes and the wine certainly won't be a problem!

        Kin Shop is close and very good. Also Mary's Fish Camp, which is a bit farther.

          Keste could work, but you'd need a back up plan in case there's a line. Hundred Acres is close and okay.

            Snack Taverna is close by, plenty of vegetarian small plates, and I often order their vegetarian entree even though I'm a meat eater because it's so freaking good.

              We ended up going to dinner after the show at Prune. Completely great. I had grilled shrimp app plus greens and shared a radicchio/endive salad with my wife. Had the olive oil cake for dessert. And a tasty Gigondas to drink while we ate. Thanks to all posters.
