NYC Restaurants

Sushi of Gari 46

Sushi of Gari 46 Japanese – Sushi | Theatre District

347 W 46th St (bet 8th & 9th)


Notes: We’ve only been to the Theatre District outpost of this multi-location restaurant, but we found the fish to be less than fresh, and although we’re admittedly very picky about fish, we weren’t impressed with the quality like we are at our favorite sushi place in the city, Sushi Yasuda.

Shake Shack

Shake Shack Fast Food Burger | Multiple locations

Notes: We’re lucky enough to have a Shack just a couple miles from our house in Connecticut, so it’s no longer a special treat to have when we’re in the city. But it’s a great place for a quick, inexpensive lunch or dinner with lots of locations around the area. We love the burgers and crinkle-cut fries, and don’t miss the yummy root beer. Check the website for locations.


Aureole Seasonal American | Theatre District

135 W 42nd Street (bet. B’way & 6th)


Notes: We love the bar room, with its energetic vibe, and enjoy dining in the corner of the bar if possible. This is one of our favorite choices for pre-theatre dinner.
