Why is the PATH station at World Trade Center so hard to leave?

I was housesitting recently for someone in New Jersey and took PATH to work at the World Trade Center, and walking through the station to reach the exit seemed to take longer than the train ride. (The exit I wanted, on Greenwich, seemed especially hard to reach; I had to double back across the length of the building.) Does anyone know why it's designed this way? Is it just trying to trap people in the mall? Isn't it unsafe in an emergency to have the exits so far from the trains?

NYC Theater District restaurants - affordable with decent seating?

My boyfriend and I have tickets for Hello Dolly tonight at the Shubert (44th between 7th and 8th). We were just going to get fast food for dinner but I thought it might be nice to get a sit-down meal one step up from fast food. Fast casual would be fine (especially the price range), but I'd like to go somewhere where we can get an actual seat - and a comfortable enough seat, not terrible bar stools or rickety chairs. I can find lists of fast casual in the area but it's hard to tell what the seating is like. Any recommendations that might fit the bill? Any cuisine is fine.
