Classic. A city institution in the heart of the theater district, this eatery is known for colorful autographed caricatures of famous showbiz faces lining the walls, and a nostalgic mid-20th-century atmosphere. The waiters, sporting bright red jackets and black ties, are old pros and work the room like its a stage, as producers, agents and actors sit at the prime tables. Cannelloni au gratin, shrimp Sardi, steak tartar and crab cakes are old-time favorites. A prix-fixe, pre-theater dinner is available.
