Pre-Theater Dinner Suggestions

Tennyson | Jul 7, 2009 07:04 AM

My wife and I will be in NYC for a weekend in late July and I would love some feedback on my dinner ideas for one of the nights we will be there. On Friday night of that weekend, we are going to a play (8 p.m. curtain) in midtown and need to figure out where to go for an early dinner beforehand. We are staying in Soho so we could eat there or in the Village and try to grab a cab or we could eat closer to the theater.

Looking for high quality, but not formal. Timing will be tight so we will have to try to get a table for 5:30 or even a bit earlier if possible and have finished dinner in no more than two hours. Some of these may not make sense given the timing issues and location, but I am considering the following:

-- Babbo (may not be able to get reservation anyway)
-- Scarpetta
-- Esca
-- Blue Hill
-- Little Owl
-- Red Cat
-- Spotted Pig

On Saturday night, we are having a more leisurely dinner at Eleven Madison Park so that night is all set. But Friday is the trickier night since we have theater tickets.

I would very much appreciate any and all suggestions!!

Many thanks.
