What To Eat Near Us
We’ve been here on the outskirts of Times Square for a while now, and we know the neighborhood pretty well.
Many of our students travel to come see us and if that’s the case for you, it makes sense to consider doing some other things while you’re here. One of our favorite things to do besides playing the drums and teaching drum lessons is eat! Let us give you a little “taste” of where you might go to have a bite before or after your lesson.
This is not an exhaustive list by any means, but it is filled with a few places that the people of BANG frequent themselves.
561 Seventh Avenue (between 40th and 41st streets)
This is a fast food-ish looking place, very modern and clean, with really good sushi. It’s not cheap, but it’s also not expensive. Good sushi can be a tricky proposition, so recommendations go a long way with us. Rest assured, Wasabi consistently delivers the goods.
152 West 44th Street (between 6th and 7th avenues; closer to 7th)
If you like BBQ, this staple of NYC’s meat eaters scene is not to be missed. It’s definitely not hip. But what you give up in coolness will be made up for with the sheer delight you’ll get from the large portions of tasty brisket, ribs or chicken. Really delicious.
620 Eighth Avenue (corner of 41st street)
One of the favorites of the BANG teaching staff, Schnippers is chock full of comfort food. Whether it’s the burgers (which are delightful), the mac and cheese, or the chicken fingers, pretty much everything we’ve had here is good. Good for you? Not so much. But still good. Your mouth will say “thank you.”
Sushi of Gari
347 West 46th Street (between 8th and 9th avenues)
This is a bit of a departure from what we’ve told you about above. Sushi of Gari is a top-notch, gourmet-level restaurant. The sushi here so fresh and delicious that you’ll want to keep eating more and more of it, even if you’re already full. Be warned, the bill will make you wish you had an expense account. If you do have one, bring one of us–we’ll pretend to be whichever client you wish.
