Hello! We're visiting New York this weekend, staying at the Mayflower, and seeing a play Saturday evening on West 36th between 8th and 9th. We need to eat before the theatre because we'll be joined at dinner by two college kids who will be off for the evening as soon as the curtain falls. Anything chowish with an old New York setting, or, on the other hand, something chowishly hip to appeal to the college types? Also, we need a lunch (not brunch) spot on Saturday near the Museum of Natural History. Thanks for your help!
