I'm taking my mother and my 7 year old daughter to see Matilda (the theater is on 44th St.) and am looking for pre-theater brunch/lunch recommendations.
It will be for my daughter's birthday and my mother is disappointed that we aren't going to dinner after the show (which we can't do for a variety of reasons), so I would like lunch to feel special, but it's still lunch so it shouldn't be over the top. I would prefer to be within a few blocks of the theater for the sake of timing and in case the weather doesn't cooperate.
I would love to learn of your favorite special occasion weekend lunch spots in and around Times Square that would be appropriate for a well behaved - foodie - 7 year old.
Thank you in advance!
