View Full Version : NYC Restaurant advice

Hi all- I'm hoping some one with NYC experience can help me. In August a girlfriend and I will be spending the weekend in NYC. We are going to a Broadway show on Friday night, and I'm looking for a nice, but not too over the top, restaurant for dinner before the show. She is a vegetarian, although she does eat some white fish, and I will eat and enjoy just about anything. The Theater is at 252 West 45th street, so something in that general vicinity would be most convenient. I found several places on-line that serve pre-theater menus, but it's so hard to tell if they are any good. One of my other friends recomended Four Seasons- what do you think? I'm hoping that some one here might have advice based on personal experience.....
Thanks in advance-

The 21 Club offers a nice pre-theatre fixed price menu. I'm not sure about vegetarian options, but it's something to look into.

Carmine's is also a nice spot near the theater district. Being the menu is Italian, vegetarian food should not be a problem with all the pasta varieties they have. They serve food "family style," where you get entrees and everyone shares. Their Hot Appetizer Platter has a great savory bread pudding. Probably a touristy spot in respect to other's opinion, but a nice dining option that is reasonably priced in the area.

Cara Mia is a yummy Italian spot near the Theater District, not touristy either. It was one of our favorites from our trip last spring.

I would personally venture over to 9th or 10th avenue..there are tons of restaurants there off Restaurant Row where you will 1)get a good meal and 2)not pay through the nose. Unless you both love pasta, I would go for something not Italian and there's so much to choose from...afghani, thai, mexican and greek. If you like seafood, Uncle Nick's is a really good greek family style restaurant that does a great job with all kinds of grilled fish.
here's a link with address and reviews:
if you want something a little less expensive, I would go for Don Giovanni brick oven pizza/italian restaurant, afghan kebab house or el azteca.

Thanks forthe great suggestions!! I think I'm leaning toward Italian, and it looks like there are plenty of good options- now the challenge will be just to pick one. Thanks for the help!!
