NEW YEAR'S IN LONDON W/ IN LAWS...

New Year's Eve in London w/ inlaws...dinner. Something tantalizing from any corner of the earth, but they're more safe upper middle class-so something slightly straight but with plenty of ambiance. I'm hoping they'll pay. I'm travelling from the sage brush of Nevada, so it should be a memorable place.

thank you for any suggestions,
a

        At today's exchange rate, that's £7.50 to £20 per person, which is possible, but hard, particularly once you add in drinks

        I might recommend Boulevard Brasserie in Covent Garden. It's nice and central, and they have a deal on TopTable (must book online) for 3 course + champagne for £15 per person. Just say no to the bread and olvies because they will charge you extra. and when they ask "Still or Sparkling?" Just say "Tap."

        You can see a list of other £15 offers here...

          okay-lets say there is NO budget-where would you suggest? I'm curious about "fifteen," but there isn't a menu yet for new yrs eve. Also, if you have any suggestions for something wild w/out the in-laws.

          cheers

          Your budget is tricky anyway, but on New Year's Eve, I would say impossible - unless you don't drink and you fancy going to a vietnamese place or something similar. On New Year's Eve, the vast majority of places will have a "special" menu, which is short hand for rip-off - because they can, because of the occasion.

          You may get lucky at a gastro pub (lots of info on them on this board), and they have the advantage of usually selling decent beer and wine at ok prices.
