Though dinner theaters are a novel concept, a cast solely composed of Siberian tigers normally results in them breaking character to ransack the theater for raw steak. Have dinner before hitting Broadway with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pastas, crêpes, and more at Café Un Deux Trois, located in the heart of Times Square. This offer is not valid for prix-fixe meals.
A pre-show and post-show favorite for nearby theater-hoppers, Café Un Deux Trois serves upscale yet unpretentious French cuisine. Start the culinary odyssey with escargots de Bourgogne ($12.50), six snails bathing in garlic butter, before heading down more-filling roads, where diced chicken and fresh tomatoes take up residence on a plate of penne gorgonzola ($17.75). Lunchers can revel in the cheeseburger au choix ($13.95), a juicy patty of American pride in a French brioche bun, and nightpersons can cap the evening with a dessert such as the café's crêpes suzette ($8), a homemade crêpe flambéed in cognac and Grand Marnier.
Cloth-topped tables and elegant chandeliers evoke an aura of classy Frenchness while the large restaurant retains a casual ambience, allowing one to feel comfortable wearing a monocle with a Who's the Boss? This Guy Is the Boss T-shirt. Regardless of wear, the restaurant's lavish columns and serene lighting will entice nibblers to look up from their food every so often to ponder what it would be like to be a moderately successful tight-rope walker.
