Located nearly adjacent to Theatre Row, home to about a dozen off-Broadway houses, Restaurant Row runs in Hell’s Kitchen along West 46th Street (between 8th and 9th Avenues). In this one little section, hungry passersby will find a high concentration of eateries, each with its own flair. Represented cuisine includes that of Asia, Brazil, France, Ireland, Spain, Russia, Italy, and many more. Most, if not all, can saddle you up with both a delicious dinner and a clear picture of the neighborhood diversity. Best of all, its close proximity to hotels and the Theatre District makes it an ideal place to have your pre- or post-show supper. It has earned its moniker as “Where the World Comes to Eat.”
Restaurant Row and Theatre Row
Some of the local performance troupes include Playwrights Horizons, Musicals Tonight, The New Group, and Signature Theatre. In addition, the shows presented at the smaller houses along the Row are a great way for tourists to see up-and-coming theatre at a low price. Of these, the Lion Theatre is the smallest with a capacity of just 88. The Acorn Theatre is the largest one with 199 seats.
