Could you please tell me how long it would take to walk from the Ed Sullivan Theatre and what the walking directions would be. We are meeting our daughter, who is vegetarian and her boyfriend in NYC to celebrate my husband's birthday and to see the Colbert show. Your restaurant seems like the perfect place to celebrate !
