Broadway is one of New York City’s most iconic cultural institutions, and getting a ticket for one of the shows is a dream come true. If you feel like the night is still young after your play is over, here are three restaurants where you should head afterward and mingle with the Broadway crowd.

Ellen’s Stardust Diner

If you want to experience the thrill of a Broadway show without paying for the ticket, Ellen’s Stardust Diner is the place to be! Singing waiters put this retro diner on the map, and many of them even went on to become Broadway performers after getting their head-start at Ellen’s.

Sardi’s Restaurant

Sardi’s is one of the most iconic restaurants in NYC’s Theater District, and it deserves all the attention coming its way. You’ll come here to check out the famous caricatures of Broadway stars lining the walls, but you’ll end up sticking around for the delicious classics of American cuisine on its menu.

Joe Allen

Joe Allen became a theatre industry institution over the years, serving as a meeting place for working actors, theater staff, and fans. It will win you over with its poster wall honoring Broadway flops and its signature American comfort food menu.
