Help!! Where to eat..walking distance of Staples
Going to American Idol concert with daughter tonight, and I don't know the area at all. The Palm is too pricey, and I don't like the Pantry. Can anyone help me? We leave at 5pm. Thanks SO MUCH in advance!!
Engine Co. No. 28 has valet, so after dining you could just zip on over to one of the Staples Center-designated parking lots.
At Engine Co., I recommend the southern fried chicken and the meatloaf; both of those entrees are about $19. Stay away from their soft shell crabs if they are still on special - not particularly eventful. You may need reservations.
Just keep in mind that those Staples center area blocks are long blocks.
Liberty Grill is the closest walking distance aside from the Palm, but the food IMO sucks. Yes, sucks. Big, boring, bad food.
I've also walked to Zucca for their happy hour (one block closer than Engine Co.). Small menu, decent food and a really good deal at HH prices. Or you can just eat in the restaurant. It took about 20 min. to walk there from Staples, and I'm a very fast walker (my friend was worn out, trying to keep pace with me).
