Best Theatre District Restaurants
Looking for recommendations for dinner before theatre. Prefer to stay in theatre district for the three nights that we have theatre tickets. Have reservations at Becco and would appreciate recommenations for other restaurants. Thanks
Hard to give specific recs w/o knowing your price range, cuisine preferences, curtain time, theatre location, and day of the week.
Where to have dinner before a Broadway show/pre-theatre dining:
I have not been to Becco in a very long time. It's popular because they have a salad and 3 daily pastas for $22.95. Not sure how it is these days.
We have always had good experiences at Marseille but I defer to hounds who have been more recently.
We used to enjoy a hidden gem (lively Irish Pub with a quiet dining room popular with the pre-theater crowd) around 45th/46th. They had a prix-fixe and the food was pretty good. Not a destination place on the food front. Hal Holbrook was at the table next to me one time. Langan's I think. Have not been in so long not sure it's still open or how it is these days.
Thanks to all who made recommendations. Since we have been to Bar Americain and Becco, we have chosen Tony's Di Napoli, Lattanzi and Kellari Taverna. Other evenings will be at Dizzy's Coca Cola Club and hopefully Colicchio and Sons. Also will do brunch at Norma's. Appreciate all your help. May try to work in dinner at the Modern.
I love Kellari and the Modern! I must confess to having avoided Tony's Di Napoli for years thinking it would be cheesy and touristy. Well it is, kind of, but I went there recently and really enjoyed it. Tons of good food, nothing that will knock your socks off and not in a league with many of the other places recommended but very enjoyable for pre-theater.
