  1. Where is your theatre?

    What's the curtain time?

    What's your budget per person before tax, tip, wine/drinks?

    When in December?

      Theatre is 45th near 8th, 7pm curtain, no budget and Mid december. What is your suggestion.

      1. re: hungrygourmet

        The 7pm curtain will greatly affect your ability to have a great meal without being rushed, particularly because many restaurants don't open for service until 5/5:30pm. You need at least two hours for a top tier restaurant (The Modern, Le Bernardin, Jean Georges, etc) for dinner. Preferably more. You won't have enough time.

        1. re: hungrygourmet

          You could go to The Modern or Le Bernardin after the performance.

          1. re: hungrygourmet

            Does the 7 p.m. curtain mean you'll be eating on a Sunday night?

            1. re: Elisa515

              Yes - good point, a lot of these heavy hitters are closed Sundays.

              Though looking at Broadway schedules, OP could mean they're seeing a Tues/Weds/Thurs show also.


              1. re: Elisa515

                Shows are often at 7 on Tuesdays. I'm going to one tonight.

              2. re: hungrygourmet

                Hakkasan is on 43rd between 8th and 9th and opens at 5:30pm on Tuesdays.

            2. What do you like to eat? Cuisines? Meat/fish/vegetable?

              1. Snack before, dinner after if you really want to enjoy the meal (regardless of where you go). Suggestions would be Le Bernardin (if you love fish), The Modern Dining Room, Betony.

                Another option if you could swing it would be go for a great lunch as late as possible.

                1. Can you please clarify running time of your show and what day of the week this is for?

                  1. DB Bistro Moderne opens for dinner at 5:00 pm.
