What's the best restaurant to have a nice, pre-theater meal?

I used search function first but the recommendations were from 12 years ago! :)

We like Succotash (an Edward Lee restaurant; he appeared on Top Chef) and Asia Nine.

Some places have special pre-theater menus which can be a bargain. I'd recommend Central for that

Jaleo is one of my favorites and they used to have a great pre-theater menu. They don't seem to now, but it stil would work if you want that type of cuisine.

Succotash must have improved since we were there about 2 years ago. Our meal was very disappointing.
