Head to The Lambs Club for a Posh (and Non-Touristy) Theater District Dining ExperienceThe Lambs Club Channels Old New York With Chic Digs and Gourmet American Cuisine
While Times Square and the Theater District don’t usually conjure up images of posh dining rooms, there’s one gem worth stopping by, even if you don’t require a pre or post theater dinner menu. Since opening last year, The Lambs Club (named after a private theater club founded in 1847), has been dishing out some of our favorite modern American cuisine by Food Network star Chef Geoffrey Zakarian in digs that channel old New York in the best kind of way.
The chic restaurant boasts a glamorous and cozy dining room, lined with black and white photos of Broadway and Hollywood stars overlooking bright red leather banquettes and an oversized 18th Century fireplace. The lounges are equally elegant with long, glass-top bars, and luxe, red leather booths and bar chairs. It’s not a place where you’ll find tourists drinking cosmos. (In fact, on a recent Saturday night we spotted Gossip Girl’s Kelly Rutherford and Chace Crawford enjoying some bubbly upstairs.) This Theater District bar boasts specialties crafted by Milk and Honey’s Sasha Petraske, including a Strawberry Gimlet ($17) with gin, lime juice, and sugar, and the bubbly St. Hilaire ($15) with Cava, St. Germaine, and lemon peel (our personal fav) along with staples such as Mai Tais ($16) and White Russians ($16).
The spot offers everything from brunch, to afternoon tea, and of course a three course theater menu for $44. (It is just a half block away from Times Square, after all.) After-hours, you can order from the late night bar menu, which offers a great sirloin burger ($19), spicy veal meatballs ($10), and shrimp cocktail ($3.75 each), perfect for a post-show snack.—AMANDA LIBBYThe Lambs Club| 132 West 44th Street (between 6th Ave and Broadway)| 212-997-5262
