This Theater District restaurant on 44th Street has been a NYC institution since 1927, and was also an original participant in the first NYC Restaurant Week® back in 1992. As a popular industry hangout spot for Broadway and theater professionals, Sardi’s reopened last December after being closed for nearly two years, and the Italian eatery famous for the celebrity caricatures lining its walls continues to be a go-to destination for the pre- and post-show theater crowd.
Special lunch offering (weekdays only): Lunch at $30 per person includes entree choices of Spinach Ricotta Lasagna, Chicken Cutlet Parmigiana, or Orange Teriyaki Glazed Broiled Salmon. Dessert choices include Tiramisu Torte, Granny’s Apple Crumb, or an assortment of Homemade Cookies.
With celebrity caricatures lining the walls of this old-school, white-tablecloth dining room, it’s no wonder Sardi’s has been a Broadway institution for decades. Between theater superfans, the performers who appear on stage, and other Broadway professionals that stay tucked away in the wings, this restaurant sees a steady pre- and post-show crowd for classic dishes like French onion soup, cannelloni au gratin, and filet mignon with a red wine reduction.
