Since 1921, Broadway legends have come to Sardi’s Restaurant to open shows, make deals, and get their caricatures drawn for the wall of fame. No wonder movies and TV shows like “Glee” and “The Muppets Take Manhattan” filmed here when they needed authentic theater flair. In the Secrets of Sardi’s Tour, you get a backstage look at the restaurant, covering everything from the deals that were closed at the bar to the caricatures that were stolen by rabid fans. All tours are led by a longtime Sardi’s staffer, which means your guide will have a few eyewitness stories that you won’t hear anywhere else.
