"Where to eat in Covent Garden"
 
   Does anyone have any recommendations for pre-performance meals near the ROH? I can't get there much before 6.30, and my companion is a vegetarian. Any suggestions? We used to go to Cranks but it has now closed, and we are getting tired of Ponti's.

Thanks!

   Try Gerrards in the piazza. They have great fries and steaks (french style) but they are quite pricey.

There is also the Mongolian Barbeque when you create your own concoction and they fry it for you on the spot.

And there is TGI Fridays a US style emporium Restaurant pretty close by.

There is a surfiet of Restaurants around including an Aussie themed one called "BRUCE and SHIELA'S"

   There is a place called Tuttons on the piazza. It is quite large so you can always get a table if it is just 2 of you, good reasonably priced menu with really decent veggie options and quite quick.

Cafe Rouge - on Wellington Street. Cheap, varied menu with veggie options, quick.

Belgo Centraal - just off Neal Street - fine if your veggie friend eats mussels

   As we in Italy are used to go to theater later in the evening (20,30 - 21,00 which is bad habit), when I'm in London I look for after-theater restaurants. Have the ones You mentioned service at the end of performance too?
Thanks for useful information indeed!

   I didn't realise Cranks had closed! I've found Pizza Express, just up the road, a good standby, and they've been able to get me in and out of there in 1/2 an hour before when necessary. There's a new Italian restaurant next door which I haven't tried yet, or across the road upstairs in the Marquess of Anglesey (I think it's called) they have a pre-theatre quickie menu which I think had some veggie items. Bruce would presumably recommend Royals (Indian), which used to be where the Italian one now is, but is now just down Endell Street, and I think it now does a buffet, which should help. I've also found Café Valérie in Russell Street very quick, but can't remember what they do in the way of veggie food.

   There's a nicer brasserie than Cafe Rouge in Wellington St (forgotten its name - blue sign); cafe du jardin, Wellington St also nice; Christopher's nice but overpriced; my favourite is still Bertorelli's (downstairs for economy!) I've eaten at all these with my veggie friend (who also eats salmon).
