I know this topic has probably been covered hundreds of times, but here it is again. I'm visiting New York at the end of May. I have several theater tickets and would appricate suggestions for good pre-theater restaurants in Mid Town. I would like to walk to the theater from the restaurant. I like good food, (I'm from New Orleans originally and have lived in San Fransico for the past 20 years) so quality is better than just fast. I have made reservations at B. Smith's, it appears to be close. Suggestions for good Italian (especilly Southern Italian - We only have good Northern in San Francisco), stake and special New York spots appredciated. Does anyone recommend Gallaghers stake house? It's also close to the theaters. Thanks for your suggestions.
