Restaurant Row (West 46th Street)
"Restaurant Row" is near by the "Broadway" theater district, on West 46th Street, between Eighth and Ninth Avenues. Ask for the pre-theatre specials.

"Harlem's Restaurant Row" is on Frederick Douglass Boulevard and "Brooklyn's Restaurant Row" is on Smith Street.

11 October 1974, New York (NY) Times, pg. 28:
EATING OUT Often theatergoers and late-nighters complain about the dearth of restaurants in and around the Times Square theater district. There are quite a few -- the selection of bistros on Restaurant Row, 46th Street west of Eighth Avenue, Sardi's, Downey's, Ma Bell's, the Blue Ribbon, La Bourgogne, the Pantheon -- plus two others worth consideration.
