I'm looking for a place for dinner this Saturday night.
We have tickets to a 10:30pm show at the Union Square Theater, and need to pick up will-call tickets; so need to be at the theater by 9:45pm or so. We are staying on Park Ave./38th St. .... so I am seeking a place near our hotel, near Union Square or someplace in between. My boyfriend doesn't drink, so cocktails aren't necessary. I'm good with a glass of wine, etc. A long wait won't do, due to the show; (reservations and the ability to GET a reservation this late in the game, would be a plus, but not necessary) - and we aren't (read: he isn't) super-sophisticated eaters. Looking for a good, unique, even off-the-beaten path place, for a good dinner and experience... that will get us to our event in time. Also, nothing TOO pricey, entrees $25 or under, etc. Possibly Italian or Mexican... no French or anything fussy. I have to go out with someone else for that!
