Restaurant Suggestions Near the Ambassador Theatre

Going to see Chicago on Friday the 29th. Anywhere decent nearby to grab a meal before the show? Am I dreaming that I can get a table on a Friday?

Thanks much!

See this post and all its subposts:

tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g60763-i5-k794824-… Eating_in_Times_Square-New_York_City_New_York.html

Then, look up the places on Menupages.com

No porblem getting a tabel. Go to 9th Avenue in Hell's Kitchen for a better, cheaper, less touristy selection of eateries.

What are your budget, tastes and size of party? Any kids?

Hey QB:

No kids, we're up for anything. Honestly I don't know where the theater is in relation to anything else - I get all turned around when in NYC. We're staying at the Warwick across from MoMA. Would love to eat at a local joint not a tourist trap in Times Square if possible.

The Ambassador Theatre is 49th Street and 8th Avenue.

Here's a way to find dining around a particualr point. Enter the name of your starting point in Citysearch. When it comes up, click on the name. Then look on the right side and click on "find nearby...restaurants."

http://newyork.citysearch.com/

I see that within a short walk from the theatre are these popular choices:

Maria Pia

Pongsri Thai (cheap and good!)

Le Bernadin ($$$$)

Pigalle

Thalia

Seeda Thai (another good Thai choice)

Churrascaria Plataforma (endless meat fest!)

Sosa Borella...

...and about 3 dozen other choices!

Use Menupages to read reviews on these places.

Also, select "West 40s" on Menupages to browse. Maybe something will strike your fancy?
