We went to see Bruno Mars here and the set up and sound were perfect! The lines were short and the employees seemed to know how to keep everyone moving and happy. So excited that I can mark this off my "Bucket List"!

We like Applejack Diner, 1725 Broadway. Not fancy, but delicious home cooking and great service.
