Food and Entertainment at Prescription for Murder - Elephant & Castle
I just pulled up the menus for both shows, and from a chow perspective, they look pretty underwhelming:
While I've never had a downright terrible meal at E&C, it seldom clears the mediocre bar; much more of a watering hole than anything else. Since this is a fixed menu, I'd say the odds are that the food will be middling to bad.
Never eaten at Ricardo's, so I can't comment. Anyone?
The food at Ricardo's is excellent, IMO, and it is rarely crowded. Prices are mostly good, too, though some of the wines can cost you a bit.
I kinda like the Elephant and Castle, not so much for the food (which is average, IMO), but mainly because it is one of the few casual restaurants in the Financial District that is open for dinner.
