    The first thing you notice about Candela are, of course, the candles, which are everywhere, even suspended on iron chandeliers above your head. It makes for a fabulous last-minute date option with its moderate prices, abundant seating and a great something-for-everyone menu (you really can't go wrong!). NY Metro, my magazine, recommends "try getting a spot up front if you'd prefer a cozier feel; the cavernous, darker back room can get noisy." Most of the menu is described as American Nouveau, so think steak and sushi (yumm....I'm getting hungry now. haha). Also, their pre-theatre menu is pretty good.

    Pre Theatre Menu: Daily, 5:30-6:30 PM, three courses, $19.99
    Brunch: Sun, 11:30-3:30PM, $12.99, all you can drink, $16.99
    Happy hour: Mon-Fri, 5-7 PM, two-for-one drinks; $5 martinis; $3 draft beers

    Outdoor dining is available!

    Favorite Dish: The Asian BBQ pork chop ($18) and the spicy chicken dumplings ($7)! So delicious, try the dumplings especially!
