Hello! This is my first post and I'd like to start by saying you have all been extremely helpful in planning my last few trips.
This time around I am traveling to London with my mother and sister. This is the first trip to London for all of us. I am the foodie among us, my mother has more traditional tastes (but is fun loving) and my sister will love anything as she has two young children and doesn't get out much.
On the night we go to the theatre I am treating to an early dinner (5:00'ish) and my research has led me to Rules and The Ivy (assuming I can get a reservation). I am looking for somewhere with good food, a decent wine list, memorable atmosphere and prices that won't shock my mother and sister. Are the prices and quality of food comparable? Which would you recommend? (I did a search on these restaurants but the most recent thread is two years old.)
(Just a note, our theatre tickets will be for a Saturday, so the mid-week pre-theatre special menu at Rules is not a factor).
Thanks very much!
