NYC THEATRE DISTRICT...new restaurant

Yes, it's true, the continual basher of most theatre district restaurants, yours truly, has spotted a light on the horizon. A new restaurant, GLORIA, has just opened on West 53rd Street (9th Avenue). I would expect good things from Chef Diego Garcia, as he has experience both at a very well regarded restaurant downtown, Contra, as well as at seafood temple Le Bernardin.

I am away from my New York base and have not tried it yet, but maybe some theatre-bound Fodor-ites will be interested. The menu looks creative and prices seem fair enough.

G-L-O-R-I-A, GLOR-ORIA

Menu looks interesting but suspiciously simple. In my experience, little plates add up to big bills (or empty stomachs)!

Was that Jim Morrison or Patty Smith?

Actually it was written by Van Morrison, covered by the Doors and I think inspired Patti to cover it after hanging with Jim Morrison at the Chelsea back in the day. . . but I could be wrong!

Mad me think of this fantastic copy/cover

Enjoy

Here, I will attach this thread since at the end there is a report (post of December 11) of another restaurant I liked when I ate there recently before a show. The name is Danji:

When I think of Gloria, I think Gena Rowlands with a gun.

You go, Glen Coco!

53rd Street & 9th Avenue -- that's Hell's Kitchen, not the Theatre District.

So the light on the horizon goes dark yet again.
