About this business
From Our Editors
1409 Playbill Café brings down the curtain on hunger with a highly eclectic menu of American and international edibles. Begin your mouth-powered exploration with the Mediterranean tapas for two, a collection of hummus, fried eggplant, pita bread, and Egyptian fava beans ($12.90), which can be stacked into the shape of pyramids to attract nearby sphinxes. Eight-ounce burgers served on grilled pita bread ($7.99) promote carnivorous creativity with a choice of 12 extras, including gravy, sauerkraut, jalapeños, and feta cheese ($1.25 each). Floravores can tackle grape leaves ($4.99) packed with the power of rice, kalamata olives, and pepperoncinis, as well as the spinach quesadilla ($6.50) and a leafy lineup of veggie salads. A 16-ounce pork chop and its complement of garlic mashed potatoes ($16.99) take down even the amplest of appetites, and the shrimp and crab pasta ($15.99) unites the sea's greatest crustaceanary powers to rule taste buds in a benevolent flavor kingdom.
