Pre-Theatre snacks/Post-Theatre Dinner after Much Ado at Wyndhams

Thanks everyone! I made post-show reservations at Les Deux Salons and will try Terroirs for a cocktail and snacks beforehand.

Pre-Theatre snacks/Post-Theatre Dinner after Much Ado at Wyndhams

Hello again. I've searched the board for recommendations, but I'm not sure we can afford the Ivy and don't want to do Asia de Cuba (which is basically our marriage) or Chinese (my husband is of Chinese descent, and he's not interested), so where would you recommend we eat dinner after the play (on a Monday night)? Also, where could we have a quick snack beforehand? We'd like to keep dinner under 65 pounds, including one glass of wine and one non-alcoholic drink plus dessert.

Thanks in advance. This is our first time going to London.

Gastropubs: What if you can't drink -- still worth it? [London]

Thanks. It's never an issue at regular restaurants, but actually we *have* been to a micro-brewery/restaurant where everyone was expected to have a beer, and we ended up "donating" my husband's beer to our friend. I just wanted to check to see if that was the case with any of the gastropubs. Thanks everyone, for your input!

Gastropubs: What if you can't drink -- still worth it? [London]

I've been stalking the boards this past week to plan our 10th anniversary trip to London and Paris at the end of May, and I realized we have a big problem: my husband can't drink (he's got a rare inability to break down alcohol), and I am a cheap date at about two drinks max. Should we then forgo the gastropub experience, even though the food is what draws us, not the drinks?

Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
