Dinner before or after Kinky Boots -- and where?

Jump to last reply

Snagged tickets for Kinky Boots in NYC on a Sat night in November. Soon to be 85 year old Mom will have arrived from LA that day. My guess is that even with the 3 hour difference (meaning the show will start at 5 p.m. L.A. time) she might want to grab a bite before the show. But with my energetic mom, you just don't know!

So . . . looking for recs for a light dinner either before or after the show, depending on her stamina. It's going to HAVE to be close by the theatre, since she will probably not want to walk great distances or cab someplace.

She's a foodie, and loves her wine . . . BUT if we go before the show too much will knock her out! And husband and I are not the types to spend a whole evening in a restaurant and are definitely unpretentious when it comes to dining. We like lively vibe, eclectic clientele. We all like to drink. So close, fun, and for mom, something a little more elevated than a famous Ray's. Even a pub will do. Love French, Italian, unpretentious American, and small plates (i.e. tapas kinda food) will work. I'm the only one at the table who stopped eating Sushi when it became fashionable.

Suggestions?
