In the first few months following our opening in March 2010, we were thrilled with the reception we got from our neighbors, who quickly decided we were one of the best Hell’s Kitchen restaurants and bars. We also became tight with the hard-working, uber-talented professionals in New York’s theater and service industries, for whom we keep our kitchen open till 2:00 a.m. and offer one of New York’s only late night Happy Hours, and have now begun to offer a monthly midnight comedy hour as well.
This summer, we began to welcome savvy tourists who are discovering that, a mere block west of the uninspiring theater district restaurants, there awaits a marvelous pre-theater meal that can be enjoyed in a less-rushed, more reasonably priced, and far classier place than their usual spot.
Most of the traditional Times Square restaurants and Theater District restaurants in New York City are designed to bilk harried tourists by serving passable, expensive meals in assembly line fashion. In a marvelous article titled “Ten Things Not to Do in New York City,” Concierge.com wrote “we don’t understand why anyone bothers to eat there….The chains are exactly the same as the ones in the ‘burbs—just more expensive.” What does Concierge.com suggest as an alternative? That readers check out the many wonderful restaurants in Hell’s Kitchen!
At the Brickyard, we offer outstanding fare, cooked to perfection, served with a smile and in an unhurried manner. When we offer you a table for pre-theater dinner, we’re not worried about how long you’ll stay. With our ever-changing list of 24 craft beers, new wine list and fall menu, how could we possibly move you along?
Our total package makes us one of the the best bars or restaurants near Roseland, and one of the best restaurants near Terminal 5.
As we wrote recently, we are also one of the best restaurants near the August Wilson Theater, which hosts the Jersey Boys, and is also a short stroll down 52nd Street. Just a block further away is Wicked, making us a great choice among restaurants near the Gershwin Theater.
