Best Wednesday pre-theater dinner near W. 45th St.?
Ended up with last-minute tickets to Bernard B Jacobs Theatre for tomorrow night. Showtime is 8 p.m. Where is the best pre-theater dinner and what time should I reserve for? Would have to be a place with day-before reservations an option. We like everything foodwise. Price isn't important. We're visiting from out-of-town. Thanks!
You're seeing Once tomorrow at 8pm?
If you're able to sit down at 5pm, you should be able to do a nice dinner without feeling too rushed. The issue is that many of the really nice places don't start serving until 5:30pm.
Looking on OpenTable right now, I see availability at The Modern - Dining Room for 5pm for 2 tomorrow night. Should be OK if you do the prix fixe and not the tasting.
Not far from your theater, I recommend the following restaurants:
Hakkasan - IMO the best upscale Chinese food in Manhattan. Also they are participating in restaurant week and have pre-theater dinner.
Oceana - Upscale seafood, reliably well-prepared. I'm not sure if seafood is a strongpoint in KY?
