But in the past few years, the Times Square redesign has made it more pedestrian-friendly. A free outdoor concert in Shubert Alley between 44 th and 45 th Streets and Broadway and 8 th Avenue featuring performances and appearances by the cast of some two dozen current Broadway shows, with host Norm Lewis, the new Phantom of the Opera. Cooking reminded me of my childhood. This time we too friends who like big band.
Great place to go for brunch or dinner before theater. Very pleasant service and good food.

No more Jicama salad and the ceviches have changed. Still the best Rojo guac and nicely made drinks. Friend in from out of town. My favorite place in NYC for steak and seafood. Simply amazing in every way.

Ideal for a business lunch. Amazing service food amazing service all staff was very accommodating More. Beautiful restaurant and perfect for a date night. Highly recommend the French Onion Soup and the 24 layer chocolate cake! Phenomenal food, great wine and great service.
Surprising being that it is in a hotel and at times square More. A great evening in a place with a family history. Brian was a superb waiter and the food was just excellent. We love to dine at Lattanzi when in New York. This restaurant never disappoints. Delicious asparagus soup with a vegetarian base. Staff is very helpful and attuned to diners with theater after dinner.
Great NY vibe, excellent fast service Loved the specialty drinks, apps were a hit!! Awesome gluten free options! Oysters and langostines were a delightful appetizer. Dinner ended with sushi scallops, mackerel accompanied with small grilled eggplant.
It was a very good dinner. We will be back. Cooking reminded me of my childhood. Tres leches was perfectly balanced and delicious. Reservation honored Service and food outstanding. Very convenient to the Hotel and the theater. As always, the cuisine at "Le Rivage" was outstanding. I highly recommend the "Gambas Le Rivage". Excellent food and great service. The server was one of the best we have ever had anywhere. We will definitely return! In town for Broadway show.
Wonderful dinner, had the special, 3 pastas. Each one was outstanding. Just what we hoped for Italian in NYC! We came for a pretheatre dinner based on a notice about the opening of the restaurant in the NY times. It's a perfect location and the food, service and ambiance are a perfect beginning to the evening.
Food and ambiance were exceptional, and we got to our theater on time. My favorite Italian restaurant in the area. Great, real Italian food, super service. Always a good experience for now the last 12 years. Food and service as well ambient. I definitely recommend it. The agnolotti and the burger was amazing! A little sound dampening consideration would go a long way in this space. Otherwise I have nothing negative to say. A NYC before or after theater favorite. Been going for years, and it's still terrific.
Good food and lively bar Nice service and good food - seafood like crab cakes and special fish of the day were excellent. Recommended for pre-theater patrons. Excellent food - we had the edamame dumplings, crispy duck, sashimi and a hand roll. All was delicious, service was wonderful and place was quiet - we went at 10pm so not surprised there. Good wine selection and delicious mochi ice cream. Great service, delightful energy, the food is ok - you will not be disappointed.
You are there for the Sardi experience. Fresh ingredients and a good array of different fish and seafood options. They do their best to please. Food is always really good. Felt just a little rushed on the service. Highly recommend the Chicken Kiev and Borscht. Classic old New York. Sophisticated and friendly, food is excellent, service is beyond par, very professional. Good food, good service, good price, great atmosphere. Great food and service! Waiters are very attentive and friendly.
Delicious pasta dishes and four of us split two of the salads burrata special and pear and arugula salad which was the perfect amount of food. Would definitely go back for a pre-show meal!
I a man selected Blue Fin and was with five women for a pre-theater lunch. Everyone was really pleased. The menu was varied enough so that all six of us were happy. Our server was helpful and we were not rushed. Great job, Blue Fin! Very good basic Japanese food with ample sized portions. The teriyaki dishes were done just right. Great red bean ice cream!
I've been going here since I first moved to NYC and it is a perfect pre-show dinner, or after dinner martini spot. Always eclectic and alway fun. The food is standard 46th street fare, so it fills you. The drink menu is fun and the bartenders on the 2nd floor are always cool and fast, friendly too.
Excellent burgers and hot dogs More. One of my favorite places for business lunch, but not recently. This time when I got to the entrance, I saw the Michelin sign and realized the menu changed!
But only for better! Always happy with everything the restaurant has to offer. This restaurant have a very good sea food. Located in Times Square, near Subway More. Great ambiance but on the pricier end in terms of quantity and service More. Stumbled upon this restaurant on a Sunday afternoon and quickly accommodated our family of 8. Will definitely visit again! Great stop before the theater. But also great for anytime. French bistro ambience and fun people watching.
Everything was cooked to perfection and the service was above and beyond. Delmonico's Kitchen is a wonderful place to bring guests that you want to share great food and exceptional service with. The dishes were plentiful and perfectly prepared. Oscar's service was attentive, friendly and unobtrusive. Dennis keeps the whole place running like a Swiss Watch. Great to watch a game. Server was very nice.
Plan to spend min for dinner. Delicious food and fantastic service every single time More. I relied on the Open Table reviewers and was not disappointed. Perfect dinner stop pre-Carnegie Hall without breaking the bank. Nice menu, typical, without fanfare. Everyone enjoyed apps and entrees. Great service, staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was gorgeous, great steak!
Very nice place, good food, good value, great service. Shrimp Scampi could use more garlic. But will recommend and probably go back again. Above average Irish pub with above average food More. The secrets to its success? A bustling backdrop, low prices and a killer matzoh ball soup. Don't forget to bring cash as they don't accept plastic.
The Red Caboose Photos: The Red Caboose Follow the sound of the clanging train bell and head downstairs to this semi-secret basement hobby shop that we had to include even though it falls just outside the Times Square area between Fifth and Sixth avenues because it's such a rare diversion. Owner and colorful character Allan Spitz has been in business on the block for 40 years, including nearly 20 in this subterranean location, which has been home to a hobby shop since At one time, there were four model train stores on the block, but only the Red Caboose remains, with its packed quarters practically overflowing with model trains, cars, planes, kits and building supplies.
Spitz credits his success to being "conservative. When there were bad times, I hoarded money.

Along the route, the passengers are treated to brief performances by a range of performers on the sidewalk outside — from Broadway belters to rappers, from ballet dancers to tap-dancers — each introduced as if they were accidentally passing by. Walking tours of the Theatre District, such as Broadway Up Close , are an excellent way to learn the secrets of the Rialto.

The Drama Book Shop West 40 th Street , which has been around since , is a place for theater professionals and people who dream of being so. There are regular events and book signings with well-known playwrights and other theater artists: There are more than restaurants in Times Square. You can make reservations for many of them on Open Table. Restaurant Row alone has about 30, packed into a single block on 46 th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues, with a wide range of prices and cuisines.
This includes Joe Allen , with its famous Flop Wall — all the theater posters hanging on the wall of this eatery are for shows that were bombs on Broadway. There is yet another terrific activity that Times Square offers, Kevin Doyle says: For any questions, please visit our Customer Service page.
