Long-running Joe Allen remains a unique Broadway experience (even if there are branches in London, Paris, Miami Beach and Ogunquit, Maine). Go before or after the theater and you’re bound to see any number of familiar New York showbiz faces. (Al Pacino, Rosie O’Donnell and Liam Neeson have been known to hang here.) The menu offers better-than-average club grub, including steak (frites and tartare), cheese burgers and large salads. Although surrounded by posters of major Broadway flops, regulars always have their fingers crossed for the latest crop of shows.
