Pre-Theater Dinner: Bond 45, Marseile, or Dafni?

jaschultze | Jan 17, 2011 06:18 PM

I am taking my teenage son to Broadway for the first time for two nights in a row at the end of the month and I have been doing a lot of research on the boards for good dinner options.

We already have a reservation at Bond 45 one evening, as it is a favorite of family members (despite my seeing little about it on the boards). As for the other night, I have narrowed it down to Marseille and Dafni, both of which seem to be pretty solidly recommended here. Assuming we like the cuisines equally, which gets your nod? My son has looked at all the menus and given them each a thumbs-up.

The only other alternative I'm considering is doing some sort of "old-school" thing by going to Joe Allen's post-theater, since it's my son's first time experiencing Broadway, but is it no longer "special" to do so? If we did that, we'd probably just try to grab a burger at the Theater District Shake Shack before the show.
