One of the best restaurants near the Neil Simon Theatre

For 90 years, The Neil Simon Theatre has hosted some of Broadway's most legendary shows. Opened as The Alvin in 1927, it was renamed in 1983 to honor the prolific playwright, Neil Simon, whose works have regularly appeared there. In recent years, The Music Man and Hairspray graced the stage, and the current resident is the one and only Cats. 

Just a few blocks away from The Neil Simon Theatre, you find The Distillery, which offers outstanding  food, for a reasonable price, in an un-rushed atmosphere. Soon, you’ll share the view of those who wrote the stellar reviews of The Distillery on Open Table, with phrases such as "great experience pre-theatre," "Service was efficient but not rushed," "a fabulous vegetarian option!," and "cocktail menu is amazing," "share-able appetizers" and "the Chicken and Waffles sandwich hit the spot!
