AAA Inspector Notes
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. Cannelloni au gratin, shrimp Sardi, steak tartar and crab cakes are old-time favorites. Both a prix-fixe lunch, and a pre-theater dinner are available.
