My friend and I are staying at The Waldorf next weekend and seeing plays Friday and Saturday evenings. Any suggestions for lunches, pre-theater dinners and cocktails after the shows? Thanks so much. I love reading posts from CHOW.

    Pampano is near your hotel (49th St near Third Ave). I would suggest making a pre-theater meal from their tapas menu in their first floor "Botaneria."

      How much are you willing to spend before tax, tip, and wine/drinks for a meal? There are some expensive restaurants nearby like La Grenouille and The Modern, for example. do you want casual? More formal? Street food? Etc.

      Off the top of my head, I like:
      Bar Room at the Modern
      Ma Peche
      Monkey Bar

      For cocktails, Monkey Bar and Lantern's Keep.

        Thanks kathryn. Will not worry about a spending allowance. We'll probably do expensive one evening and casual the next. I do love The Modern. Will definitely check out Lantern's Keep.
