    First the bad news…it’s pricey!!!!! Even for New York, but especially for a diner! For that reason, I can’t recommend it to everyone. But, this was a special occasion and (secretly) put in more money than my friends did so we could enjoy a nice pre-theater lunch. Our favorite salad — The Perfect Plate — is exactly that. It’s about $30 if you add the blackened salmon…plus coffee and/or drinks (usually charge for refills, too, which sucks) so you can’t get out of there under $40/per person…not including tip. THAT SAID, the wait staff is SUPERB !! Outstanding every time. We were seated by a delightful host…and our waiter, Ash, was the cutest, most attentive ever! I’ll definitely be back, for special occasions, and wish I could recommend it more often. Maybe when the menu makes an adjustment…???
