Mapping the meals even the poors can afford.
Recession Restos aren't just for the US. This financial crisis thing-y is global, and everyone everywhere still has to eat (lavishly).
Heading across the pond, we're looking at Electric Brasserie, a see-and-be-seen hot spot in London's trendy Notting Hill 'hood. Electric is actually kind of a complex, with a sleek bar-and-restaurant next to the Electric Cinema, where you can grab some Champagne and chill on a sofa for two while watching a first-run movie.
But even dinner theaters are having trouble reeling them in nowadays, and Electric is offering a pretty sweet mid-week deal. On Mondays to Wednesdays, you can get a three-course meal and a movie for £28.50 ($42). If you're familiar with London (over)pricing, you know that's a pretty good deal for a menu of steak tartare, pork belly and sticky toffee pudding, followed by a feature film ("The Wrestler," "Waltz with Bashir" and "Rachael Getting Married" are playing this week).
