West Bank Cafe, Hell’s Kitchen, NYC + Travesties

We decided to meet at the West Bank Cafe, as it’s a good place for a decent meal when heading to the theatre, especially those on 42nd Street. We were off to see Tom Stoppard’s Travesties, an unusual comedy about James Joyce, Vladimir Lenin and Tristan Tzara, a founder of Dadaism. For a complete theatre review on Theater Pizzazz, click here.

My friend had their roast chicken, with green beans and carrots ($24) and asked to share a vegetarian entree of spaghetti squash topped with tomato sauce and vegetable ragu ($20).  The latter was as bland as you’d imagine, even topped with lots of fresh Parmigiana Reggiano. To me, no way spaghetti squash is a substitute for pasta!

I had their crab cake ($24) accompanied with sliced fresh avocado and a spicy chipotle mayo, which was much more flavorful than the faux “pasta.”
