Hi everyone, 

 

Looking for some advice.  I am graduating this weekend (mature student!) in London.

I wasn't sure of the plans for this weekend but it turns out myself and 4 others will be going to London for the weekend.

Myself and my wife are big foodies who don't really mind spending a reasonable budget on it but the 3 others are a bit more frugal :-)

 

We need to find 2 places at short notice.

1.  A pre theatre place on the Friday.  My graduation is on the Friday and we should be back in the heart of London for 6pm - going to see a show at Drury Lane at 7.30 so need somewhere for a quick bite in between but somewhere we won't feel too silly all dressed up.

 

2.  A place for a celebratory meal on the Saturday night.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Happy to try most cuisines - previous trips to London have enjoyed visits to Locanda Locatelli, Bar Boulud, Maze Grill, Pattersons (now closed I hear) as well as quick bites in places like Mooli's (also closed I think).

 

Thanks

 

Martin

You could try Opera Tavern - it does lovely tapas and is pretty well located for a pre-theatre meal.

Sofra is quite near http://www.sofra.co....oventgarden.htm and if you like Turkish mezze it would be good for you and your friends to share.
