Iconic restaurants have been around the Broadway area for quite a while now, but surprisingly, it was only lately that the dining scene along 42nd and 54th streets has been in full bloom. The recent boom of epicurean hot spots shows a mind-blowing spectrum of good eats, from an exquisite selection of Italian treats at ESCA and Becco, to Shake Shack’s deservedly popular burgers for a quick pre-show grub.

Meanwhile, for those looking for a one-stop spot for mouthwatering food and breathtaking entertainment, Broadway does not disappoint.

An intimate theatrical experience awaits diners at the Laurie Beechman Theatre, an 80-seater dinner theater in the basement of Manhattan’s West Bank CafĂ©. One-act plays, jazz acts, cabaret, and even stand-up acts are performed in the venue. On Thursdays, diners can get up close and personal with the big stars of the stage through its Broadway Sessions. While waiting for the curtains to go up, diners can treat themselves to exquisitely prepared free range chicken, skirt steak in truffle butter, and Scottish salmon.

And there is the ever-popular Ellen’s Stardust Diner. The menu calls to mind the true blue American diner of the ’50s with comfort food offerings like meatloaf and chicken potpie for dinner, and Southern Style biscuits and gravy for breakfast. But the main attraction of this dining spot is its company of singing waiting staff whose performances day and night leave customers gaping with awe. Most of Ellens’ waiters have gone on to perform in Broadway and join reality singing searches.
