234 West 44th Street between Broadway and 8th Avenue. 212-221-8440. Average main course $25. This is a Broadway institution, since 1921. If you're going to the theater and want to go where the stars, producers and "show business" professionals go, then this is your spot. You'll be busy looking at the caricatures of the Broadway and Off Broadway stars that line the walls. The menu provides cannelloni, chicken, and cheesecake. It's fun!
145 West Broadway between Thomas and Duane Street in Tribeca. 212-233-0507. Average main course $18. This Tribeca restaurant has been around for 21 years! It's always been a place to be seen. Art Deco walls and good service. The food is the reason for the long run. Featuring stuffed chicken breast and filet mignon au poivre, it's a classic bistro. The Odeon still has "it" after all these years. A Tribeca favorite since the 1980's.
