40th Birthday Pre-theater for 4

Hi All,
Looking for your recommendations for my sister-in-law's 40th celebration in May. It'll be pre-theater at 44th St.
Per Se is too expensive and Becco is too bland. Any ideas for something in between those mis-matched dimensions? Thanks!

  1. I don't have your details on time and day but take a look at Aureole (Dining Room not Bar Room). I really enjoy their food and the dining room is quite nice. Close to theaters as well.

      Thanks - I'll go by tomorrow and case the place :)

    2. If you like Chinese food, Hakkasan is on 43rd Street between 8th and 9th avenue.

        Will definitely try another time. Birthday girl is from out of town so i'm leaning more toward classic french or italian...but I love Chinese food.

          4-course chef's tasting at 75/person. A bargain.

          1. Picholine offers a two or three course pre theater option:
