THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Sam's Restaurant Review

: Broadway stars may dine further uptown, but members of the chorus come to this long-running (since 1926) theater-district favorite. The food is straightforward---everything from a burger to linguini Sinatra to Danish baby back ribs to grilled tuna or a T-bone steak---and the prices are right. Plus, you can't beat the energy, especially when there's live music late and cabaret in the evenings.
