Wicked Tickets in NYC-Need dinner suggestions?
I just have to share a New York secret with those of you that are going to buy tickets for Wicked at the Gershwin Theater. Well maybe its 2 secrets about where to eat before the show.
There are many places to have a great meal at prior to seeing Wicked. Since my wife and I eat out allot, I thought I would give you 2 suggestions, both close to the theater.
First, you might want to consider making a reservation at our new favorite restaurant. It's a very special place called Taboon. Taboon is a very special midtown restaurant specializing in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern food. Taboon is located at 773 Tenth Avenue at 50th Street. They have wonderful "hot from the taboon" breads, that go hand in hand with specially prepared "hummus". In addition they have about a dozen terrific entrees at "mid range prices". The decor is stylish yet subdued enough top match its 10th Avenue location. The food and service at Taboon are fantastic and I can just hear the "thank you" calls from customers we suggest this dining establishment to. This place is a real treat friends. Their local phone number is 212-713-0271.
My other suggestion is right next door to Wicked, for those of you that have a desire to be very close to the theatre. The Palm (one of 3 in New York City) is a great choice and literally across the street from Wicked. The Palm is a steakhouse that also has wonderful tasting seafood dishes, especially the fantastic Lobster dishes they serve. The Palm resembles a fast paced business person's place yet has exceptional service. The atmosphere is a bit "old style" complete with many a New York "chariciture" of famous celebrities on all the walls. Fun to look at folks. Their phone number is 212-333-7256 and they are located at 250 West 50th Street, between Broadway and 8th Avenue.
If you need tickets at reasonable prices for Wicked in New York and a great meal to make your trip to Broadway complete, don't hesitate to give the friendly ticket experts at Applause a call. They can be reached at 212-307-7050 or toll free at 800-451-9930 seven days a week, all year long. They love theater and really know lots of great places to have a really good meal.
Just think about how you'll be able to brag to your friends that you got great seats to Wicked and had a great meal to boot. It's fun getting people excited about seeing Broadway Shows and eating good food. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
