If you’re seeing a show in the West 50s (or you’re just going to your office there every day), La Esquina is a good quick option to know about for a quesadilla and some rice and beans at lunch or late-night carnitas tacos. You order all of your food at a counter here, and there’s a decent amount of seating. Just know that there’s no alcohol.
