NYC Broadway Week is slowly upon us, beginning on September 4th and going right into September 17th.  The alternative to Restaurant Week, NYC Broadway Week highlights the best deals to see some of your favorite shows and get a first glimpse of how amazing our city is in the fall weather. However, you still have to eat, and luckily there are a couple of great spots neighboring these iconic theatres that you must try while you are here or just taking the subway to see these award winning shows.
