ISO great meal with no scene for $25

Looking for a spot with amazing food with no scene, no wait on a Saturday night, low key, inexpensive but creative wine list and good choices by the glass. $50 for two people.

Anywhere east of La Brea.

Am I dreaming?

  1. Cha Cha Cha isn't quiet at all, but it's not the typical Hollywood scene. And for $50 for 2 people you can do very well. It's tapas and great sangria...

    I think it can also be done at the Bungalow Club. I did some graphic design for them when I first move out here but never sampled the food. Very low key (at least it was...) It's an idea, but I'm sure there are some better places.

    How bout Falcon? That's a little more trendy, but not too crowded and surprisingly affordable.

    Any food you're looking for imparticular?

      No cuisine in particular, just a really satisfying dining experience....

          I believe The Bowery is on Sunset Bl east of Vine. The Pantages is on Hollwood Bl.

      2. The Bowery perhaps? Though the noise factor may vary (it's next to the Pantages Theater)


        1. Speaking of Montrose, how about Divina Cucina?

              Vermont will definitely cost you more than $25 per person, especially if you are drinking wine, although I would recommend it if your budget were higher.

              Perhaps Lou on Vine would work, if you order carefully.
