Having been in the arts, I've heard about Sardi's for years. It was a must try my first time in New York. I arrived for lunch and was seated promptly. It wasn't busy. The staff was very sharp and really excellent. I had a salad and a cannelloni. It was good, but nothing special. I can't say the food was worth the visit. It was just great to be there, looking at the caracitures and seeing a bit of theatre history.
