Applause loves dining at Taboon in New York City before going to Broadway

Dear theater friends,

Anyone that subscribes to our blog or buys their Broadway Show tickets from Applause knows one thing for sure. That their ticket requests have been taken care of with the greatest of care.

But did you know that lots of people are always asking us "where should we eat before the theatre"? Our ticket staff usually suggests several dining spots that are generally located in the theater district. Most of our clients seem to want to be near the theater they're going to so they don't have to rush around taking taxi's and risk being late for their show.

For those of you that really like a new and different dining experience before you attend a Broadway show, allow me to let you in on a really great "New York secret dining spot". It's a wonderful Middle Eastern and Mediterranean restaurant called Taboon. It's such a special place that they don't even have a web site although you can "Google it" and see lots of rave reviews and listings about Taboon on various restaurant type web sites.

Taboon is located at 773 Tenth Avenue at 52nd street, just a few blocks from the building where I live. Their phone number is 212-713-0271 and although they are located a little further west outside the theater district, its still only another 5-7 minutes to walk to most of the Broadway theaters. I promise you, you'll be glad you tried this place.

The 2009 ZAGAT Restaurant Guide says:
"Hot-from-the-taboon" breads, "sinfully creamy" hummus and other "heavenly" Med-Middle Eastern fare at "mid-range prices" are why this "out-of-the-way" Midtowner is often "packed" despite its "barren" 10th Avenue locale; "stylish" decor and "welcoming" service are other reasons its "worth the cab ride" west.

You should note that the Zagat guide has got the "food, decor and service" down pat but since you would be going to the theatre, then Taboon would not be out of the way for you. Although the theater district is located from 41st to 53rd streets and the Broadway area, Taboon will at most be a very short cab ride or not-to-far walk to your theater.

In particular, Taboon Restaurant is only a few blocks from the following Broadway shows:


Jersey Boys

Shrek The Musical

Mamma Mia!

West Side Story

Billy Elliot

If you call Taboon to make a reservation, you might want to tell them that their "biggest fan", Rich Gladstone from Applause sent you. No need to though but if they look up my name, they'll see I eat there all the time. I know your going to love it. Of course when you top the night off with a great Broadway Show, you'll have a memory you'll cherish for a long time to come. I guaranteed a great night for you and your family.

If you want to talk about Taboon, other places to eat or Broadway, I hope you'll call Applause directly in New York City at 212-307-7050 or toll free at 800-451-9930.

Enjoy friends.
