    The two of us are already addicted to the merguez lamb sausage with harissa and mint at Épicerie Boulud before a movie.

    As I wrote in my BITE, small plates at the bar of Daniel’s new Boulud Sud are a perfect prelude to a concert but I’m not the only one with that idea. The place is usually jammed with early birds pre-theater as is Bar Boulud next door.

    We each had a huge bowl of a different chowder followed by chopped salad with calamari for me, tuna tartare for Steven. We love watching our friends order the 2 lb. lobster with two sides for just $29.

    We also are regular drop-ins at Atlantic Grill (49 West 64th Street between Broadway and Central Park) for the pasta or sushi.

    Quite frankly before or after the movies on Broadway, Caffe Fiorello has become our easiest go-to. Everyone seems to recognize us and we get a favorite booth.

    Blue Fin’s sushi menu solves Steve’s pre-theater eating-light resolution and I often have salmon. It is always decked out with seasonal vegetables. I ask for it rare and the kitchen delivers.

    The day I scored tickets to House of Mormon on West 49th Street, I immediately booked a table at Toloache around the corner. I believe I was the first critic to discover chef Julian Medina’s upscale tacos, in his first Mexican venture.

    If we’re headed for the Lyceum theater on 45th or the Stephen Sondheim on 43rd, both east of Broadway, we might stop first for a snack at Brooklyn Diner: the burger with fried onions and the obscene 15 inch long hot dog with fries for Steven.

    Orders the two-minute ceviche of lemon-marinated razor clams with chilis and mint and Rita’s bucatini laced with spicy baby octopus, a recipe Esca’s Long Island-born chef David Pasternack learned in Naples from a friend’s mother.
