Recommendations for Dinner w/ Mom in January

I'm taking my mother to NYC the last weekend in January, and I'm looking for suggestions for a restaurant / dinner show / caberet on for Saturday evening. We're staying in the time square area, and already have theatre tickets for a saturday matinee. I'm looking for something suitable for my 69 yo mom.

Kind of vague, I know. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Rita Moreno may be appearing at the Cafe Carlyle then.

Here is a link to their calendar.

The Cafe Carlyle and Rita Moreno sounds like a great idea, but it can get really expensive there. Since Bobby Short died, they're insisting you have dinner there in order to see the show. That can wind up being over $200/person b/w the music charge and the food. I don't really understand what they're saying about this show. You should phone if you're interested.

Carnegie Club has a Frank Sinatra tribute performance on Sat. nights. I've never eaten there. There are 2 shows on Sat. night. You coudl eat elsewhere and then go for the show.

If Mom likes jazz, there are more than a few places that have reasonable food and good jazz. They include

Knickerbocker Bar and Grill

Blue Smoke/Jazz Standard

Dizzy's Coca Cola

the Garage

A lot depends on what she likes and how into music she is.

I suggest you consider the Oak Room at the Algonquin.

Go to algonquinhotel.com and click on the Oak Room schedule.

Have fun!

Whiz, when I clicked on Rita Moreno it said there was a cover charge, but didn't mention dinner as a prerequisite.

I agree that if interested one should call the Carlyle directly for more info.
