Weeknight dinner near Royal Alex
I am hoping for some recs for dinner for a group of 8 people, including 2 teens and 1 child. Italian or Canadian/American food would be preferable. Prices need to be reasonable (mains $10 to $20 range). Ideal location is within a few blocks of the Royal Alex as we will be seeing Stomp there after dinner.
Paese might work, if you stick with pastas as mains.
If you're willing to increase the budget to mains that are less than $30 , Luma would be a Cdn food option. O+B Canteen is cheaper, so it might fit your budget better, but I'd much rather eat at Luma. It's also easier to get a table for 8 at Luma.
For mains that are less than $20, Queen Mother might work, which is within a 10 minute walk, but most tables are 2tops and 4tops. Guess you could call to see about a group of 8.
Barootes might be worth checking out- some mains might be less than $20.
If these suggestions are beyond the price range you're seeking, there is a Firkin and a Milestones, as well as some other relatively economical chains, in the Ent District, within a 10 minute walk of the Royal Alex. I had to eat at the Elephant + Castle last fall, and I think I'd probably choose Milestones over another meal at that particular Elephant + Castle, if I had to order chain food near the Royal Alex.
