Americana: London’s latest pre and post-theatre opening in Haymarket

There’s a venue in London where you can have your cake and eat it too – and that place is Americana, the dining destination that’s quickly becoming a favourite among foodies in the know before a night of West End theatrics.

Haymarket is an area that’s always buzzing with activity, with a constant stream of theatregoers, tourists and locals alike. It’s a vibrant hub of culture, and Americana fits right in. Situated just a stone’s throw away from the Theatre Royal Haymarket and Her Majesty’s Theatre, it’s the perfect spot to grab a bite before a show.

But let’s get to the real reason you’re here – the food. Americana’s menu is a love letter to classic American cuisine, with dishes like mac and cheese, Southern fried chicken, and New York-style cheesecake. It’s comfort food at its finest, with a touch of gourmet flair that elevates each dish to something truly special.

Start with the grilled watermelon and feta salad, a surprisingly refreshing dish that pairs perfectly with a crisp glass of wine. For mains, the crispy skin salmon with burnt lemon sauce is a standout, but if you’re feeling indulgent, the maple-glazed pork belly is a must-try. And of course, you can’t leave without sampling the dessert menu – the peanut butter and jelly cheesecake is pure heaven on a plate.

But what really sets Americana apart is the attention to detail. From the vintage Americana decor to the live music, every element of the dining experience is carefully curated to transport you to a bygone era of American hospitality. It’s a little slice of nostalgia that feels like a warm hug on a chilly London evening.
