Wondering where to eat after galleries with a group of people. Usually it's around 8pm and a mixed crowd (4-8) without enthusiasm for paying very much. Grand Sichuan on 24th and 9th is good, the Hog Pit used to be empty, Rub is good for a group. Tia Pol, Red Cat, Cookshop are all too formal. Anything new and reasonably priced but not too crowded? Half King is too loud and hit and miss food, but we end up there anyway. The Park is quite miserable. Really looking for a decent, totally empty pub with good food, but the ones I'm thinking of went out of business (not enough customers?).
Thanks so much for suggestions.
