Brickyard Gastropub is one of the best restaurants near Radio City Music Hall
For many, the Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular is part of the quintessential New York City experience.
But dining nearby usually is not.
We already warned you in a previous post that the restaurants near Times Square and other tourist hot spots tend to be uninspiring franchises of national chains, with no character or local color.
But it gets worse.
Many of the restaurants near Radio City drastically raise their prices during Christmas season. They are jammed for the entire month of December – so why not raise prices, right? Ordinarily you might walk right out of a place when you open the menu and see that a hamburger and fries costs $25+ – but not if you waited 60 minutes to sit down!
What might be a smarter way to enjoy Christmas in New York? Go visit Radio City, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the windows at Saks, and the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree. Then you’ll be tired and hungry – a perfect target for the price-gouging purveyors of mediocre fare you’ll find in the first, second and third seriously crowded restaurants you’ll find near Radio City Music Hall.
Walk west, three avenues, turn north two blocks, and walk right into the Brickyard Gastropub, at 52nd & Ninth Avenue – it’s 700 yards from Radio City, and you should arrive within 8 minutes, and we’ll probably have a table waiting for you – so you’ll be seating down 52 minutes earlier than you would at those places near Radio City.
Ask for Pat or Gavin, tell them you are tired, cold and hungry, but you refuse to pay double our usual prices! We’ll first warm your tired soul by telling you that we don’t raise our prices for the holiday season, and then reward you for your assertiveness by discounting your check by 10% if you have a ticket stub from the Christmas Spectacular. Aww heck, why limit such spirit to the Christmas season? Any day of the year, visit the Brickyard with a ticket stub from that day’s show at Radio City and we’ll give you 10% off your check.
You’ll then peruse our new fall menu and try to decide between the Free Range Chicken Pot Pie, Pan Seared Salmon, or Frenched Pork Chop – all for a good bit less than you’d pay for a burger and fries at those other places.
So this Christmas, let’s celebrate together a new ritual for Christmas in New York – refusing to fall prey to the price gougers near Radio City Music Hall, and instead enjoying a terrific, reasonably priced meal at one of the best restaurants in Hell’s Kitchen.
