Rose Rage theater dinner conundrum

tamara | Sep 7, 2004 10:47 AM

At the end of September I'm going to this awesome production based on all the Shakespeare Henry VI plays rolled into one. It's two lots of two-plus hours, with an hour and a quarter for dinner in between, at the Duke theater on 42nd St. between Broadway and Eighth Ave. The Heartland Brewery try to sell you a deal where you eat some fairly plastic dinner for $25 across the street from the theater, and I would REALLY like to avoid doing this, but I'm going with three other people who are not specially adventurous and whom I will have to convince that I have a better plan for what is, after all, a rather rapid dinner window.

I'm fairly familiar with the restaurant scene in the theater district, but I would REALLY appreciate some help figuring out if there's a spot that would perfectly fit in the crosshairs of decent food vs. willingness to produce said food within tight schedule (ordered ahead) vs. not more than a ten-minute walk away. One plus is that we wouldn't be eating until after all the other theaters' curtain time, so the usual pretheater dinner crowd will have already left--the first half of the play runs from 6 p.m. to around 8 or 8:30 (I will know exactly when after I call the theater).

All suggestions GRATEFULLY received!!!! French/American, Italian, Japanese, whatever.
