For a sophisticated pre or post-theatre meal, Story Cellar in Covent Garden is an excellent option. Whether you’re seated upstairs or down, you’ll be well looked after at the sleek brasserie. Water glasses are refreshed whenever they’re half-empty, chic table lamps give everyone a healthy glow even after sitting through Les Mis, and French food hits the mark even if prices stack up quickly. While you could come for a good-value rotisserie chicken, chips, and salad, you’d be missing out on brilliant starters like umami-rich snail “bolognaise” on toast and agnolotti bobbing in buttery sauce with sweet, soft pearl onion. An elegant space like this deserves a bit of a blowout anyway.
