My husband and I will be in NY Jan 8-11, and are staying at the Belvedere on W 48th. We have tickets to The Late Show on Thursday, Jan 8 and the taping is over at 8pm. The theater is between 53rd st and 54th on Broadway. I'm trying to decide what to do for dinner after the show. We're tempted to just "wing it", but I haven't totally embraced that idea. It also happens to be my 40th birthday on that day and I would like to finish off the day with something good for dinner. Italian would be good or steaks. Someone has recommended Peasant on Elizabeth St. in Nolita for Italian.Would like to spend less than $100 total.We're going to be pretty tired I suspect after flying in from Houston very early in the morning, so maybe I should keep it simple? We could still be ramped up from the show and enjoy heading over to The River Cafe which sounds lovely. I appreciate your suggestions!
