If you’re like a lot of our audience members, you love to get a bite before or after the Melodia concert.  So we contacted some locals and collected favorites establishments for you.

Our world premiere concert, CASSANDRA on Saturday, May 14, 2016 (7:30 pm), will be at the West End Collegiate Church, 245 West 77th Street at West End Avenue. (West End Avenue is one block west of Broadway – see map below.)

We asked culinary confidantes and trusted foodies who live or work in the area for their recommendations. They point to an abundance of great places right nearby — on Broadway, Amsterdam Ave., and nearby streets.

Here are their suggestions:
