The antithesis of commercialized Times Square, this elegant Italian restaurant is still owned by the same family more than 100 years after it opened. The setting—gilded chandeliers and ornate furniture— is fittingly dramatic, as is the Piedmontese menu. Dishes such as diver scallops in a sweet tomato jus and rabbit, roasted and lavished with a lemony wine sauce, are best enjoyed in the back garden, an unlikely retreat in bustling Hell's Kitchen.
So you’re going to a Broadway show, and you want to do better than the TGI Fridays across the street. And you can!
