My wife and I will be in Manhatten in early April to see Fela! the Musical, and are looking for a nice restaurant that may be open pre-theater, located somewhere near the Eugene O'Neil theater, 49th st between 7th and 8th aves. we can eat afterwords as well, but prefer before the show.
Any cuisine is fine, we are looking for good food and drinks. $250-300 for dinner for two w/drinks (tip can be extra) is our budget. I'd prefer a place I didn't need to wear a jacket, though I will if I have to. My wife gave me a ton of names of places, but it's rather daunting trying to winnow it down with so many excellent choices.
I also need a place for late night craft cocktails, if possible. Thanks in advance!
