If you like classical music, pop into the box office at Royal Albert Hall since you'll be right there - there may be a favorite piece being performed later in the evening (if you're still in the neighborhood). Gorgeous hall and the musicians that perform there are top notch.

Most music at the Albert Hall is now, I'm pleased to say, pop. This is much lighter and more entertaining for a spur of the moment "thing".

Of course classical is still performed, and as the previous poster noted, very well. Pop is more fun for the evening, although both attract either vulgar young or old and vulgar crowds.

McLaurie; I love the Enterprise too. Great for a casual meal, or just a drink. San Lorenzo is not my favorite. I ate there twice and the second time was so awful I will never go back. I keep thinking they must have two different kitchens and staff for the celebrities and 'normal' people (m-kingdom probably falls under the celebrities then).
I had dinner at Floriana recently and loved it there; wonderful staff, great food. It's a low-key and quiet restaurant. Another restaurant in that area I like is Chez Max, Yeoman's Row. I believe it's also one of the Marco Pierre White restaurants.

McLaurie, I think I did "steal" your comments from another thread. Sorry that I did not credit you.

Not to worry ChatNoir. That's not what I meant. I was trying to find out whether Floriana (that you mentioned) is the name of the Italian place both Scarlett & I remembered/mentioned on Beauchamp Pl. up a flight of stairs.
