Sarah was always my ultimate Broadway buddy so we take in a show every time she's back in town.  After seeing Aladdin (fun for the whole family!) we wanted to grab a bite to eat but didn't want to be hemmed into the overpriced and underflavored restaurants of Times Square.  We hopped the 2 one stop to 72nd Street and suddenly had tons of UWS restaurants to choose from.

We settled on Citrus, sister to nearby standby Josies for some Asian/Mexican fusion.  Though it's billed as fusion, the menu items were either Mexican or Asian, with a few continental classics like roast chicken thrown in for good measure.  I got my Mexican fill with the complimentary chips and salsa.  The salsa was creamy and addictive.  I veered Asian for my entrée of mesclun salad with seaweed, avocado, edamame, seared tuna, and miso carrot sesame vinaigrette.  My salad was filling with ample amounts of the ingredients you really care about (avocado and seared tuna, obvi).  I made sure to mix in the wasabi mayo garnish and thought it worked well to spice up the sweetness of the dressing.  

I know those Times Square restaurants try to lure you in with prix fixe theater menus that guarantee you'll get in and out in time for the show, but I highly recommend dining in the Upper West pre or post theater.  You'll have a larger variety of cuisines to choose from and won't be bombarded by tourists.
