Pre or Post theatre dinner near Gershwin? What is close?

I am going to see Wicked on July 16th. Where is a nice moderately priced place where i can get some good food before or after the show (within walking distance)? Also, how far in advance should i make reservations?

The Gershwin (50th near 8th) is quite near "restaurant row" -- 46th between 8th and 9th. There are several good places on restaurant row, including Joe Allen and Orso. I'm quite sure you could eat for under $35 at Joe Allen. Haven't been to Orso in a while, you could probably get out for under $35, especially if you ate pasta, had 1 glass of wine, etc. On reservations, I would make them about a week ahead. You could eat at these places either before or after the show.

I was also going to recommend Joe Allen, but check out Churrascaria Plataforma on W 49th St.

We ate at Joe Allen after "Wicked." It was a short 5 minute walk. Had the best cheeseburger and fries($12, I think)!

Will anybody be joining you? For solo dining, some places might be more comfortable than others. For example, I think of Platforma as more of a place for groups.

Are there any good (not too expensive) restaurants w/ fixed prices for pre-theatre dinners nearby?

Federico's is right next to the theatre (in the 8th Av direction) and has a $22 (I believe) dinner price that covers everything. Had great chicken parm there.
