Grillroom Chophouse & Wine Bar: "We can't wait for 'Book of Mormon' to open," one waitress told me, and I don't doubt it. The restaurant, a reliable American with steaks, chops and comfort-food dishes (quite a few mac-and-cheese iterations on the menu), sits across the street from the Bank of America Theatre. Not only will this place be packed pre- and post-performance, one can hop over during intermission for a better glass of wine than the theater will offer.
