Anything good and casual around the Beacon Theater?

My husband and I are going to a concert at the Beacon Theater on 9/15, the first night of our week up there. It's been decades since I've been to a show there and I was wondering if there's anything good up there where we can come in jeans and sneakers (you don't dress up for Finnish symphonic metal!) or even a good food cart--thanks in advance!

  1. Well, the 15th is a Sat night but if you're eating before a show you'll be sharing most places with the stroller crowd anyway so sneakers would be fine in most. Plenty of places to eat but nothing that is top in the city.

    What cuisines are you after?

    1. Salumeria Rosi
      Nice Matin
      Grand Sichuan
      Fatty Crab (which will be replaced by Red Farm some time in the fall)
      Fairway Cafe

      1. Salumeria Rosi would be my pick. Right around the corner from the theatre. Amazing porchetta and salami. Make a reservation, it's casual, but not super large.

          Ditto Rosi. If its a nice night, you can eat on the sidewalk.

            I was looking at its menu and it looks like it'd be right up our alley--thanks!

              Can't get into Rosi. Any others nearby?
