Without its post across the street from MSG, Café 31 would be just another sports bar. Mostly mellow during the off-season, the place comes alive when the basketball and hockey seasons do. It serves as a convenient post-game pit stop for fans while the next-door parking garage clears, but the biggest draw is the reported player sightings. If you’re not into watching professional athletes eat, you can see them do what they do best on one of the twenty TV screens that air every game you could want to see and point them toward every angle of the restaurant. The walls are a sort of battlefield in the constant contest for space between the TVs and photos of athletes. If you’re just looking for a lunch free of all the fanfare, check out the café’s Soup Spot annex.
