English Joe Allen (restaurant)
Joe Allen is an American restaurant known as Broadway meeting place for working actors, theater staff and fans. The restaurant is located at 326 W 46th Street, New York, NY 10036. Opened in 1965 by a restauranteur of the same name. Joe Allen is known for having its wall lined with posters of Broadway flops such as Laughing Room Only, Moose Murders, and Dance of the Vampires. The restaurant featured in scenes in the films No Way to Treat a Lady (1968) and Woody Allen's Melinda and Melinda (2004).
A branch opened in the Les Halles district of Paris in 1972 and UK branch in London's Covent Garden in 1977.. In 2018 these are in different ownerships but retain the name and, in the case of the London branch, the theatrical atmosphere at a venue 100 metres from its original location.

English Joe Allen
Legendary informal bistro which is incredibly hard to find for the first time - look for the dark, discrete door with a simple plaque on it on the north side of Exeter St. Food is a take on American-style grilled fare using the very highest quality ingredients. Steaks and chops are superb. Favoured by lots of celebs and booking essential, especially pre- and post theatre.
