Pre-theatre dinner at one of the best restaurants near The Walter Kerr Theatre

Did you shout, "this is My Lucky Day!" recently when a loved one handed you a ticket to see Bruce Springsteen on Broadway?  Welcome to Lucky Town! Rolling Stone wrote, "The performance is hard to categorize. It's not a concert; not a typical one-man-show; certainly not a Broadway musical. But it is one of the most compelling and profound shows by a rock musician in recent memory."

With tickets in hand, it's time to find the best restaurant near The Walter Kerr Theatre. That is an easy one - The Distillery.  Many of your fellow fans will hit restaurants near Broadway — lines, chain restaurants, high prices. But, clearly, you are doing your research, so you know better.
