Jason Santos (Blue Inc.), a Hell’s Kitchen runner-up, is behind the menu that focuses on traditional eats such as Caesar salad, buffalo chicken wings, pizza, burgers, sandwiches, baked mac ’n’ cheese and roast chicken. The family-friendly menu is a departure from Santos’ reputation as being highly creative and using liquid nitrogen in cocktails. Entrees run $16-$28.
Taniya Nayak (HGTV and Food Network designer) transformed the two-level space, the former home of Dominic’s Restaurant, into a handsome and comfortable spot to grab a drink, pre-theater meal or meet friends. While there are two full-service bars on both levels, the first level offers more family-friendly dining and the second level features lounge seating. The restaurant seats upwards of 200 people.
Abby Lane is open 11:30 AM-2 AM daily.
