Pre-rock show dinner near BB King's?
A friend is treating me with a ticket to the Moving Sidewalks [ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons' first band] at BB King's this Saturday; l'm returning the favor by treating dinner. Anything good and moderately-priced in that area? Going to 9th Ave wouldn't be a problem.
I'm going to the same show with 5 friends. We decided on St. Andrews for a 5:30 dinner.
BB Kings is usually all seats, but for this show it is supposedly general admission standing unless your friend shelled our beaucoup bucks for the VIP tix.
I suggest heading to a different neighborhood. For example, you could eat at one of the restaurants at the Ace Hotel (John Dory Oyster Bar, The Breslin), and then take a 5-minute cab ride to the theater. Or go to the tap room at Keen's (your budget won't work in Keen's dining room, but it should in the more casual tap room).
