A “double-header” for the theater on a bitter cold Wednesday made us not want to ventue any farther than necessary for dinner between our matinee and evening performances. Since both theaters were on the same street as Junior’s we decided to give it a try. We have had their famous cheesecake on their patio next door (during the summer), but weren’t sure what an early dinner would be like.
It was an ideal location for us and for many others at the “Crossroads of the World.” (website) Located near the corner of Broadway and 45th Street, near Shubert Alley, in the heart of the theater district, access was easy. We went through the street-level, double-doors, entry-way and another set of doors to the hostess area. We were seated quikly since it was early (5:15). The hostess told us that seating is not usually a problem before 6:00. If you do have to wait for a table, there are benches in the hostess area. Although the space between tables, booths, etc, is not great, it is navigable.
Junior’s is a New York deli. The website says, “…the menu features favorite Brooklyn spcialties as well as some added sophisticated salads and entrees.”…They call it ‘a taste of Brooklyn in the heart of Manhattan’ (the original Junior’s is still in Brooklyn).
We ordered traditional deli sandwiches and their delicious cole-slaw. The couple at the table next to us, visiting from Great Britain, told us how much they were enjoying the food, and all of New York. No visit to Junior’s is complete without cheesecake – pure New York style cream cheese cake.
Multi-stall, handicapped-accessible restrooms, as well as a large, single-occupancy, handicapped-accessible restroom are easy to get to. There are no baby-changing stations.
As always, we at Destination Accessible advise you to visit a venue’s website, www.juniorsrestaurantny.com, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
