Early dinner near Public Theater

I am looking for a recommendation for very early and easy dinner before a 7:00 performance at the Public Theater. I would like something within walking distance. Thanks for your suggestions.

  1. great jones cafe - cajun style, burgers drinks wings salads fish chili - amazing and has been there forever, divey but cool, great jukebox, great margaritas
    hecho en dumbo - tacos/mexican in a cool setting
    peels - fried chicken!
    chinatown brasserie - stylish dim sum

    it's also an easy walk from soho or east village restaurants-- the above are within a few blocks, but if you want to do newyorker-style you could have a real stroll after you eat!

      What she said! I ate at Hecho en Dumbo for the first time last month and LOVED it!
      Although not up to the same level as HenD or the other places emilysarah recommended, my wife and I also enjoy B Bar for a casual meal.
