what about David Chang's Ma Peche? It's not right there but it's not too far a walk

Thank you, healthierkitchen! I'm adding Ma Peche to my list!

ChefJune and amysarah, thank you so much for your responses. We now have two good choices!

It's true - the pickings are slim right around Times Square. But there's Becco on W. 46th, east of 9th Ave. (owned by Lidia Bastianich & son.) I've only had dinner there - which was good and not too expensive, but lunch probably good too.

Amysarah, thanks for the suggestion. We will check Becco!

Sadly the theater district is also Times Square. Not much inthe way of deliciousness in that neighborhood. We once had an acceptable (but not great) meal at Ellen's Diner before a matinee, but can't say there's any place I can recommend wholeheartedly.

ChefJune, do you have a recommendation for a restaurant in an area that would not be too far away? I would rather travel than settle for something mediocre.

Becco was good the last time I was there, but that's been some time ago. I would probably eat in the Village and grab the 2-3 up before showtime. My favorite lunch spot in the Village is El Charro, a small Spanish restaurant @ 4 Charles (between Greenwich AVE & 7th Ave South).
