Joe Allen, Covent Garden

A trip to the glittering West-End wouldn't be complete without show-stopping food to match and 46th street born restaurant Joe Allen has us covered. The classic theatreland bar and brasserie brings a touch of cosy New York hospitality to Covent Garden with their all-American menu; offering comfort food classics from weekend brunch through to post-show dinner. The restaurant is ultra-convenient for theatrical days out this half term - located just a few minutes' walk from London's top theatres.


Their high-end, grill style aesthetic with ambient lighting, quirky artwork and velvet sofas projects us directly into the set of our favourite 90s sitcoms - needless to say Friends loving teens will be in their element here. With à la carte and set menu options including the luscious sounding 'Big Apple' (vegan) loaded hotdog through to their classic pink Ribeye Steak, we already know what we're having. The refreshingly well put together children's menu is packed with crowd pleasers likely to secure us time to sip our Manhattan Sour in peace.


This season Joe Allen are celebrating their newest addition: 'Joe's Bar', with live performances from new and emerging artists from independent labels - dine from 7.30 to feast your ears on this.
