349 West 46th Street
New York, NY 10036
This review appeared in the May 2004 issue of All About Jazz: New York
To walk along 46th Street west of Eighth Avenue, or Restaurant Row as it is more commonly known, is to get a small taste (pun intended) of what it used to be like in the heyday of 52nd Street, that mecca of a jazz neighborhood where bop and swing percolated side by side in the '40s. Brownstone-housed restaurants sit side-by-side competing for your business, many offer small snippets of entertainment to further entice you through their portals.
In the midst of this gastronomical universe sits something of a throwback: a venue that offers live jazz with an ample dance floor - Swing 46.
