Birthday dinner: Sunday evening in London. Recs please?

Abby D and Paprikaboy, I went right to the Salt Yard website and showed the menu to the birthday boy; when we finished drooling I tried to make a reservation. Alas, they are not open on Sunday!

Another time...

Thanks, looks good, but neither Dishoom nor Barrafina take reservations; not ideal for a birthday celebration with only 2 days in London.

Looking for eating recommendations for Oxford and Bath, early May

We'll be spending a couple of days in Bath and another 3 days in Oxford from April 28-May 4. Never been to either one and we are in need of knowledgeable foodie help. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks, snacks, anything welcome.

Arriving on Saturday, leaving on Monday, and my husband's birthday is on the Sunday. We'll be dining at NOPI on Saturday but Sunday seems to be a vast wasteland in terms of interesting places open past early afternoon.

I know that J. Sheekey is open, as is Rules, but I'm looking for something a bit less predictable. And we're staying near Soho so not really interested in long journeys across town.

Help?

Post theater meal end of May

Thanks, good to know that there IS good Mexican available, but I think we'd prefer something else. Marseille looks good, certainly lots of choice. Looks sort of like Pastis's brasserie kind of menu. How is the food compared to Pastis? Any other possibilities come to mind?

Coming from California, Mexican is probably not what we want. Will check Marseille, thanks.

Looking for not-too-upscale after-theater meal near 46th St theaters. db bistro moderne sounds too fancy and at that hour we probably won't want multiple courses. Ideally non-Italian, non-steak. Any thoughts? Does anyone have an opinion on Glass House Tavern?

Les Pates Vivantes, either address

Thanks very much! Is this typically a morning or lunch kind of place? I assume dim sum aren't available in the evening?

Les Pates Vivantes, either address

I'm actually living in Paris at the moment and assumed dim sum wouldn't be on my list for the time being, so I'm happy to hear that's not the case. And last time I was at Yank Sing, some months ago I was sorely disappointed. Not nearly as good as I remembered.

Les Pates Vivantes, either address

OK, I'll bite...I'd love to know a good dim sum place in Paris...where is this, Parigi or Ptipois?

I have to admit Les Pâtes Vivantes got me through a pretty cold winter last year, but clearly I need to look farther afield for the best.
