I usually go to Bradleys but a number of months ago someone on this forum mentioned another restaurant nearby that they recommended. I'd like to book. Anyone remember or know a good restaurant near the Hampstead Theatre?

Thanks.
If I listed every show I'd seen since 1974 I'd get RSI.

I've been to Pasticcio a couple of times, which is on the main road (Finchley Road) about 5 minutes from the theatre. It's nothing special but the food is nice and if you have a Taste card it's 2 for 1 any day other than Friday and Saturday. There's also a decent Indian chain called Guglee a bit further down Finchley Road (heading towards Finchley Road tube station).

Plus I am a fan of Belsize Kitchens....nothing to look at from the outside but great food!

Walk up the hill towards Hampstead then turn right at Belsize Lane , there's a statue of Freud on the corner....in front of the Tavistock NHS centre. About 10mins max.

Won't be near it any time soon but I'd like to be as I like the look of their menu - short, interesting, reasonably priced.

I haven't found anywhere in that area where I feel comfortable eating alone, but a branch of Wagamama is due to open at the o2 shopping centre (about 5 mins' walk further north along Finchley Road), so I am looking forward to having that option.

There's a Pizza Express just next to Finchley Road station which I'd have thought would be fairly singleton friendly. And a Chinese restaurant between that and Swiss Cottage which seemed nice too

Didn't realise how close this was the Finchley Road, spent my youth there. Yeah, the pizza express is good, the 02 centre has a Zizzi, Yo Sushi, Nandos and Byron burger place it, all great. Also has a sainsburys. Ahhh memories.

It is an almost uniquely barren and uninviting area for a theatre to be located, I can only think of Wiltons Muscic Hall which competes with it for charmless urban desolation.
