I am looking for a great restaurant near the theatre district. I have a lot of guidebooks and have seen a lot of lists online but I would love to hear from someone first hand. I am always looking for that hidden gem. Thinking about Italian but open to anything if it's special. I live in Chicago with a lot of great restaurants-when I travel I love to find something special that I can't find at home.
Also any suggestions for an authentic English pub-we will be touring all over London so any area would be great. My last time in London, it seemed like all the pubs were touristy chains-I guess I was looking in the wrong place :)
Thanks so much!
