Love this place – I've been here for romantic meals and before theater dinners with friends. It always fits the bill and can be leisurely or quick. The food is good, the service is just right, and the atmosphere is always wonderful.
A theatrical Broadway brasserie where food plays a supporting role. – The Scene
This is a cavernous, cacophonous space with soaring ceiling, colossal Ionic columns, faux-antiqued walls, distressed mirrors and trompe l'oeil murals. Go late and check out one of the hottest after-theater hangouts on Broadway. While waiting for a menu you can grab a crayon--supplied with the butcher paper tablecloths--and draw your date.
A garden-variety brasserie menu is supplemented daily by a long chorus line of specials--that is where you might want to focus. Underseasoning is a recurring problem here, whether it's an insipid tomato sauce over ricotta ravioli or the tentative steak au poivre with good (once you salt them) french fries. Grilled salmon with bearnaise sauce is one of the better regular features. A wise strategy is to stick with simple items like roasted chicken, grilled fish and salads. Desserts are satisfying at best. Try the plump, caramelized tarte Tatin.
Theater District Classic – We have been dining here for many years before theater. It is always dependable though not spectacular. I love the brasserie atmosphere - very Parisian. The brunches are particularly good and reasonably priced at $19.50 including a cocktail. The gravlax is great and so are the omelettes. I also like the steak frittes. I always look forward to coming here and always enjoy my experience.
Flatline – Went for lunch and the food is sub-par, diner quality at best. The bistro atmosphere is nice but noisy. The service was ok- not overly attentative and no check backs. I wouldn't go back and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone- there are too many interesting places in the theater district and the prices weren't low enough to make up for the rest all though it was fairly inexpensive.
Nice surprise! – What a treat!
A friend recommended that we go here for a pre-theater, weekday dinner.
We arrived at 6:00 & were promptly attended to by our competent & pleasant waitress, who also had a great sense of humor.
Prices are decent (for NYC), the food is delicious & our waitress had us fed & out the door in time to see our show - all without rushing us.
If the conduct of a staff truly reflects the management, then the people who run this café truly know how to run a restaurant & manage their staff properly.
In a city that seems to be have bad deals, bad food, rip-offs & incompetant wait staffs lurking near every GOOD establishment, we were thrilled to have found this gem.
By the way, the chocolate mousse is to DIE for!
Scrumptious Snails – This place has the best escargot a girl can find.
