We have kids age 11-14, going to see Wicked tonight, and meeting friends before for quick-ish dinner near 51st St/8th Ave. I'd like somewhere not bland fare tourist fare. Any thoughts?

  1. You're planning rather last minute. How big is the group? Six? Eight?

    Don Antonio - 50th and 8th, no reservations, so get there early
    Toloache - 50th and 8th, their OpenTable says they don't have any tables remaining, but it's worth a call
    Danji - 52nd between 8th and 9th, they only take reservations for groups of 6+ people, give them a call ASAP

    1. kathryn is right - it's sort of last minute.

      If all else fails there's always McCormick and Schmicks (6th and 52st).

      Enjoy the show. Just saw Wicked myself.

        I never doubt Kathryn, she is always right!

      2. Ruby Foo's if you can get a reservation.

        1. Thanks all, great suggestions!

          1. Ruby Foo's is available 5:30, 5:45 and 6:00 for 4 people on Open Table

            1. We went to Bann the other night. Great Korean barbecue (you can cook your own, if you choose), and very family friendly. They have a restaurant week special, and it looks like they have plenty of tables available tonight. It's on 50th Street between 8th and 9th.
