Joe Allen is the quintessential theater hangout, buzzing with producers, actors and sundry fans of the stage. This long-running show (open since 1965) celebrates flops, the brick walls showcasing posters of stinkers that didn't last much more than a night, like the notorious Moose Murders. Pull up to the bar for an expert martini that's partly poured in a glass, the rest filling a small carafe on ice so it stays nice and cold. Lunch, pre-theater or post-theater are all good times to come for uncomplicated American fare, such as sandwiches, salads, meatloaf with mashed potatoes and grilled New York strip steak in a red wine reduction
