We’ve got some good news for all you theatre people out there: this week, Broadway Week will make it’s annual debut. From January 21st to February 6th, theatre goers can enjoy 2-for-1 ticket deals on top Broadway shows, which means now’s the time treat yourself to some serious star power and get lost in the razzle dazzle of those famous Broadway lights.
After you’ve taken in a show or two, you can also take advantage of some of the awesome deals and specials offered by some of Broadway’s best restaurants in honor of the celebratory week. Here are our two favorite Bway Week dining and drinking deals.
This Times Square rooftop bar is matching 2 for 1 ticket prices by offering all Broadway ticket holders 2 for 1 cocktails. From 4 to 8 PM, you can take in the beautiful view and work up a buzz before your show. An expertly crafted cocktail program offers many great, seasonal choices: for a wintry treat, try the Haven Harvest (Captain Morgan, Drambuie, Muddled Basil, Lemon & Maple Syrup). During the frosty months, Haven Rooftop goes chic snow bunny and becomes the Ski Chalet, complete with electric fireplaces and blankets to keep you toasty, and, if you find yourself getting hungry, you can order something delicious from Chef Madison Belem's French-inspired menu. Belem serves up share-able small plates like the Tuna Tower (sesame dressed tuna tartare with wontons), as well as decadent mains (we suggest the Poulet Cajun, a Cajun-spiced chicken breast with beurre blanc sauce). If you're feeling particularly indulgent, embrace your inner child and go for the Smores on the dessert menu, which are served tableside for guests to roast.
132 W. 47th St.
Desmond's, Paul Hurley's new steakhouse, will also be embracing the spirit of the 2-for-1: whether or not you have a Broadway ticket, you can enjoy 2-for-1 desserts, along with a complimentary glass of Prosecco. Try their Bittersweet Chocolate Mousse with Raspberry Sauce and Chocolate Cigars, or go classic with some New York Style Cheesecake. If you’re looking to sink your teeth into something substantial, Desmond’s is a great choice: their classic steakhouse fare is quickly becoming the stuff of Broadway legends. Go to town on their Filet Mignon, or crack into their fresh King Crab Legs. If you're not trying to put yourself into a full on food coma, Desmond's also offers a great bar menu, with small plates like Yellow Fin Tuna Tacos with Avocado, Pine Nuts, and Apple and Grilled Slab Bacon with Black Pepper Applesauce. If you’re coming in from out of town, Desmond’s also has you covered with six hours of free parking after 5 PM.
