Carley Stenson, currently starring as Fantine in Les Misérables, talks to Jamie Lambert about her favourite Theatreland Haunt – Joe Allen.
Joe Allen in Covent Garden was first opened in 1977, a sister restaurant to the original New York site. It was named after its owner and creator, a man dedicated to delivering fantastic dining experiences. Set in a venue adorned with the best theatre memorabilia, Joe Allen is the Covent Garden Brasserie for theatre-goers, locals and visitors alike. Because it was started by actors, producers and directors looking to woo the West End’s latest and greatest productions, Joe Allen quickly became known as the ‘West End’s Canteen’, with famous faces from all industries often spotted among the posters. Open seven days a week, Joe Allen guarantees to offer great food and an even better atmosphere.
