This was an unexpected perk: When the Where magazine offices moved to Midtown last December, I realized suddenly that I was in walking distance of Broadway. Which meant I was also in walking distance of all the restaurants in that area: No more mad rushes to pre-theater dinner, or having to forsake eating altogether for an early curtain. Case in point: “Amélie” was as quirky as I expected, and so I hit upon the perfect place: Coffeemania, whose name suggests a coffee bar rather than a full-blown restaurant, with flavorful Russian-influenced dishes. For Tennessee Williams’ drama, “The Glass Menagerie,” spicy salmon rolls from Haru Sushi lightened the evening. And for the marvelous musical portraying humanity at its best, “Come From Away,” Serafi na offered an (almost) equally marvelous rigatoni Bolognese. Round of applause for all!
