dinner near arclight

bonita Nov 17, 2006 07:34 PM

Looking for a place to have dinner near arclight cinema. Do not like Cheebo or Fabiolus. Have been to Peruvian place and it was good. But looking for something new. Would like to park and walk to restaurant.

    Chan Dara, a stone's throw away on Cahuenga. Hollywood and Vine. Vivoli (further away at Sunset and Laurel, but one of LA's best bargains for Italian. Be sure to reserve.)

      The Bowery is fun & relatively casual / inexpensive, with a neighborhood atmosphere like the Lower East-Side of Manhattan. Off Vine is more of a traditional restaurant, located in a cute craftsman house with front porch seating.

        for solid peruvian fare: cebiche, anticuchos, arroz chaufa, saltados, i'd go to los balcones del peru just south on vine half a block. totally walking distance.

          On the same side of the street as the Arclight there is a little Thai place that was tasty. It's within walking distance, east of the Arclight. I enjoyed the yellow curry there. If anyone knows the name, let me know please.

            Off Vine is right near the theater and is a charming, peaceful setting. The patio is expecially nice.

              Hungry Cat, Magnolia, Bowery, a sushi place on Vine I can't remember the name of...all are walking distance to the arclight. Little longer walk...Roscoe's.
