Ideas for pre-Wiltern adventure?
Anyone have have ideas for a pre-Wiltern chow adventure on Friday night?
I've been to Opus but not sure we'll have time for that and I heard they discontinued the tasting menu.
I've been wanting to try Prince's and Kyochon fried chicken.
Any other suggestions?
I think KyoChon is really pretty heavy for before a concert. Between all the MSG and the cycle of frying in butter, it's the sort of thing that makes one want to take a nap, not get up and dance and sing after eating it.
I'd go for affordable steaks and cocktails at Taylor's or the tasty Oaxacan food at Guelaguetza, both on Eighth Street.

I tried to put the Guelaguetza restaurant link on there, but the system absolutely insisted on putting either the money transfer store a few doors down or a restaurant in Orange County instead. The system's kinda glitchy, but, if you want Guelaguetza, you'll find the restaurant well enough with the Envios de Dinero address - just keep walking until you see all the people eating mole in the windows.
Well, it ain't fancy (and it serves no booze), but Pollo a la Brasa (the Peruvian place with chicken cooked over a wood fire) is just two blocks from the Wiltern. It might be hard to get a table, as there are only 4-5 of them, but if your party is small, it would definitely be an adventure with good chow.
