Time is critical when you're Broadway bound. But who wants a growling stomach during the show? NYC Restaurant Week has tasty suggestions for pre-theater nourishment, from Italian to Asian to other global fancies. The people at these eateries are pros, which means you'll have no jitters about missing the curtain. And the settings are theatrical in themselves. Wandering the neighborhood and pondering menus is a time-waster. Pinpoint the theater and book a table nearby in case Grandma can't sprint like she used to. If you're headed to Wicked or Jersey Boys, the boldly designed China Grill is conveniently located. Before Billy Elliot The Musical or Hair, the eclectic Southern-style favorites at B. Smith's Restaurant will get you in a celebratory mood. Got tickets for Next to Normal? Think about serious seafood at Blue Fin or the Italian specialties and steaks at Bond 45. Discriminating theatergoers seeking something that will be a hit with everybody need look no further than these nine picks.
