Question
We will be seeing Wicked tomorrow (10/9) at 7 pm with my 16 year old daughter and her friend.  We need a good, casual resturant to have a pre theatre dinner.  Thanks.

Answer
Hi Karen,

You're going to enjoy Wicked, it's a great show!  The Gershwin Theater is located on West 51st which is a help since it is out of the Times Square tourist trap area.

Here are a few ideas for you:

Toloache (Mexican Food) located at 251 West 50th Street here is the website: http://toloachenyc.com/media/toloache.html

Uncle Nick's (Greek Food) located at 747 9th Avenue(between 50th & 51st Streets) here is the website: http://unclenicksgreekcuisine.com/  

Victor's Cafe (Cuban Food) located at 236 W 52nd Street(between 8th Avenue & Broadway) here is the link: http://www.victorscafe.com/index2.html

If you're looking for something more like a burger place that's isn't too far from the theater you might want to check out

5 Napkin Burger located at 630 9th Avenue (between 44th & 45th Streets) here is the link: http://5napkinburger.com/

A bit further away is The Perfect Pint which offers decent burgers and other bar food (keep in mind this is a good 6 blocks from the theater) here is the link: http://www.theperfectpintnyc.com/

One tip I'd like to share with you is to check out MenuPages.com  This is a fantastic website that allows you to read reviews written by real customers and you can also see the menus with prices before you go.  Here's the link: http://www.menupages.com

I hope this helps. Have a wonderful time!
