      Heh I misspelled Lo MEIN
      15D MEINLo ___ (Chinese menu dish)
      and it took me forever to figure out what was incorrect! Great puzzle Leonard, now to try to figure out the meta...

        I'm not very confident but here's my guess: VISA - Each of the themers has a synonym for edge then another word: woman, walls, waters & terrier. Those describe VIOLADAVIS
        26A VIOLADAVISTony-winning actress in "Fences"
        , ISHTARGATE
        62A ISHTARGATEBabylonian wonder
        , SARATOGA
        43A SARATOGASprings with a namesake town in New York
        & AIREDALE
        46A AIREDALEDog with a wiry coat
        , respectively. The leading letters spell VISA
        . How far off am I?

        Is this where I leave my guess?
