Beignets, Booze and Broadway: 10 Hidden Gems for Brunching You Gotta Try
11 Jul 2014
Brunch and Broadway are two of our favorite things here at Playbill. What could be better than a delicious meal, a refreshing drink and an afternoon performance? We put together a collection of our favorite brunch spots in Hell's Kitchen, where theatregoers can enjoy a relaxing meal and make it to the show in time for the overture.
Nobody said it was easy. In fact, going to the theatre in the summer can be a more strenuous activity than many realize. Navigating the concrete jungle, surviving the lines for TKTS or rush tickets and figuring out where to eat, drink and cool off before the show can all take a toll on a Broadway baby.
Never fear: Playbill is here to help. In fact, we've rounded up ten of our favorite places that serve pre-matinee brunches for theatregoers looking to enjoy an afternoon show. These Hell's Kitchen restaurants offer tasty treats and refreshing beverages — to say nothing of air conditioning — to help theatregoers get to their shows on time, ready to give a standing ovation.
