Salam respected brothers and sisters, as a Shia Muslim who currently resides in the west there are certain restaurants that provide food that accommodates the regulations in permissibility to consumption. Such restaurants are of other cultures such as Hispanic, Asian, and the list goes on; is it permissible to eat at such restaurants if one consumes only food which is permissible to eat of course; taking into consideration that such restaurants sell alcoholic beverages to those whom desire to consume such intoxicants in bottled or canned form.

It is permissible for a Muslim to go to places where wine is being served with the food, provided that it does not lead to promotion of those restaurants. However, he cannot eat from the table on which wine is being consumed and should not, based on obligatory precaution, sit at that table.
There is no problem though, in sitting at a table near the table on which wine is being consumed.

That's really refreshing, because people often say you can't go to any establishment where alcohol is because you are funding them and they spend money on alcohol etc etc. The irony is though that most of the people that come out with this shop in Tesco, Asda, Aldi et al., so their views fall a bit flat. I get the sentiment, but preached by those who practice their own monologues, the whole idea seems a bit false.

So yeah, quite refreshing to see a scholar have this view.
