I'm a Boston Hound who will be visiting NYC the first weekend in April. Going to a show at Irving Plaza that starts at 8pm on Saturday night 4/5.
I've narrowed down some recommendations for dinner before the show to either Sushi Samba, Verbena, or Blue Water Grill. They all sound pretty good to me. I'm looking for a place with great food and fun atmosphere. Partial to seafood and spicey flavors. A scene place is ok, but only if the food is great and not overpriced for what it is.
Anyone have opinions on any of the above?
Do you think a 6:30pm res would be adviseable if showtime stated at Irving Plaza is 8pm?
