Restaurants for the Theater-Goer
Don’t let your appetite spoil the show! Check out these restaurant recommendations from the foodies at The Pekoe Group.
Blockheads—Check out this San Francisco-style restaurant at their 50th Street location, between 8th and 9th Avenues. It is so close to New World Stages, you might spot the cast and crew of Bullet for Adolf there unwinding after a performance! Get a drink and a burrito at Bockheads any time, and see the new comedy directed by Woody Harrelson through September 9th only.
Rudy’s Bar and Grill—Rudy’s was issued one of the first liquor licenses in New York City after prohibition ended. Famous for cheap beer and even cheaper hotdogs (free!), it is the perfect place to go after The Last Smoker in America, the “unfiltered” new musical comedy that explores a futuristic prohibition on smoking. At 627 9th Avenue, it is just a short walk from the Westside Theatre.
Barbetta—If you’re catching the return of Forbidden Broadway at the 47th Street Theatre, why not catch a bite at the oldest restaurant in New York’s Theatre District? Barbetta, at 321 West 46th Street, is also the oldest Italian restaurant in New York! You might order an old-world dish that hasn’t changed in 106 years, or a brand new creation from Barbetta’s kitchen, but you are always guaranteed to be eating true Italian cuisine.
