The food at Marion's Continental is beside the point. The limp Caesar salad and dried out burger are not the draws at this campy Bowery hangout. The eclectic, ultimately American menu is a pretense for sitting around in hopes of soaking in the world-class sass at this colorful, absolutely-fabulous place. The story behind Marion's, which wreaks of legend, is of Marion Nagy, a model who opened the restaurant in 1958 and whose handsome image graces the walls today. In homage to the glamorous period in which she reigned, burlesque acts like the Pontani Sisters and monthly Fashion Brunches keep the spirit alive. If you need help achieving the correct state of mind, try cheeky cocktails like the Brassy Blond—Stoli limon, Cointreau, and pineapple juice—or the timely Same Sex Marriage, "a civil union of Mt. Gay rum, Triple Sec, fresh lime juice and mashed ginger."


Pre-theater prix fixe, $19, includes glass of wine, appetizer, entree and dessert. Available daily until 7 p.m.
