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!
