Noodles in Theater District/Hell's Kitchen

I know there are a ton of ramen threads on this board, but I can't seem to find any recommendations for something near the Signature Theater on 42nd and 10th. Are there any good ramen or other noodle bars in the area?

Thanks much.

NoHo (or surrounding area) Friday Lunch

We're looking for a great lunch in the Village/Soho/Noho area for a Friday afternoon before a show at the Public Theater.

Where to?

Walking in at Grammercy

We're on a last-minute hunt for a restaurant tonight, and are considering trying to walk in to the tavern side of Grammercy. It would be a pre-theater dinner at around 5.30. Anybody know if we stand a chance? Has anybody had any luck with this in the past?

One plan is to have a reservation somewhere in the neighborhood as a backup, and call and cancel if we get in to Grammercy. If we do that, what are some good options for plan b, where we could still get a table for tonight?

Thanks!

Nice Dinner Before the Electric Factory?

We're headed to a show at the Electric Factory and want to have a nice dinner before hand (we don't mind going to the show in nice dinner clothes). We're new to the Philly dining scene, so we're not sure where to start. We like places like Public and Bar Americain in NYC.

Casual but Good on Broadway?

We're going to Caroline's on Broadway (Broadway and 50th) to see John Pinette tonight. We'd like to find a casual and not overly expensive place that nonetheless serves great food nearby for dinner. Any thoughts?

Where to eat by the Bowery?

Thanks everybody... we were able to get a table at Public, so we're going to give that a try.

Where to eat by the Bowery?

We're going to a show at the Bowery tonight (6 Delancey Street). What's the best option for some preshow food? We don't have a reservation, so it'd have to be someplace casual, I guess. Can we still get to someplace delicious?

Plan B for Babbo?

Thanks for all the help, everybody. We actually lucked out and got one of the walk-ins at Babbo at about 6:15. We sat for a few hours and the tables constantly turned over, so it was a complete stroke of luck that we got the table.

It worked out great, though, and we were very happy with the meal.

Plan B for Babbo?

Thanks everybody. We got a reservation for the Commerce. We'll try the walk-in at Babbo, and if it's looking bleak we may swing by the Spotted Pig and try our luck there before heading over to the Commerce. Should be a fun evening.

Plan B for Babbo?

Thanks for all the help. What about the Spotted Pig? Will I have any luck getting a reservation there on short notice?

Plan B for Babbo?

Thanks very much. Recommendations for cuisine other than Italian are welcome as well... we're more interested in a great meal than specific cuisine.

Plan B for Babbo?

Hello

We have an 11:15 reservation for 2 at Babbo on Thursday night, and are considering other options. I'll call tomorrow and Thursday in search of cancellations, and if nothing surfaces, we'll give the walk-in option a try (although we likely won't be able to make it there until 7:30 or 8:00, so I imagine it will be difficult to get a walk-in at that time, no?).

So I'm wondering if anybody has recommendations for a good Plan B in the neighborhood. If we get to Babbo and it doesn't look like we'll be able to get a walk-in, what is the best option in the neighborhood to try?

Thanks for the help.
