CELEBRITY CHOICE

[[image - black & white photograph of David Groh]]
David Groh (who's currently starring in Neil Simon's "Chapter Two" at the Imperial Theatre) chooses DAVE WOLF'S, 49th & Sixth.

THE SET: Like a Victorian dollhouse in comparison to its towering Rockefeller Center neighbors, the little gray and white building on the corner of Sixth Avenue and 49th Street goes back 100 years to the days of speakeasies when a flowershop served as its front. Now the three-level restaurant has been refurbished in the spirit of an old New York steakhouse. There's an old fashioned mahogany bar with a tile floor downstairs. A curved marble staircase leads to two cozy upper rooms decorated with tiffany lamps and a stained glass ceiling insert.

THE STARS: Fresh seafood and well-aged prime beef. House specialties include curried crabmeat, mild or spicy; jumbo shrimp stuffed with crab; fresh salmon; and a seafood combination platter of broiled lobster tail, shrimp, bay scallops and bluefish. Also - prime filet mignon, lambchops, weiner schnitzel. As Dave Wolf says, "We serve basic, honest food fit for the connoisseur."

THE TICKET: $7.50-$14.50 Credit cards.

CURTAIN TIMES: Open 7 days, holidays included. Lunch, 11:30 to 4; Dinner, 4 to 11, to 12 Friday, Saturday. 765-8981.

Marta Sanders (who's currently featured in "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas") chooses...OPEN CALL, 47th between B'way & 8th.

THE SET: Years ago this spot was a classy cabaret called the Green Room. Today it's know as Open Call, a casual after-theatre club for showfolk and showgoers - not as formal as the old days but just as much fun. It's set up like a bistro - little tables and chairs fanning out from the piano. The d├ęcor features showcards, a celebrity autograph board and theatrical spotlights, all to underline the Broadway connection.

THE STARS: Houston Allred at the piano is the main attraction here. Houston is a transplanted Texan with a repertoire as wide as his home state, but his forte is Broadway show music. The between-song patter is intelligent, unpatronizing and fun, especially when Houston entices talented members of the audience (professional and otherwise) to join him in the limelight.

FEATURING: A light menu of burgers, sandwiches and fried chicken. Aspiring actor and actresses can trade in their 8x10 glossies for a free drink.

THE TICKET: $3.50 minimum. Credit cds.

CURTAIN TIMES: Tuesday thru Saturday, 10 p.m. to 3  a.m.
