46th St Between 9th Ave and 8th Ave

Perhaps the arguable center of the pre-theater dinner universe, this stretch of 46th St, also known as Restaurant Row features an endless array of potentially overpriced cuisine. Each door on the street is dressed up more than the last in an attempt to draw ones attention in. The street is charming enough (hey, it won the "Dress Up Your Neighborhood" award for 1989...a 20-year-old prize has to be worth something, right?), but unless you're looking for food (or are a signage nut like myself), there isn't much else offered here.

The flanking avenues of 8th and 9th provide you're typical midtown fare of old video stores, more restaurants and Duane Reades.
