A friend and I are seeing Wicked tonight at the Opera House and will be in the area around 5:30pm. Are there any great restaurants in the area that are not too fru fru and expensive? The show is tonight! We originally had reservations in the North End at Antico Forno, but worry that we won't make it to the theater in time to park and all. Help!

    Also might want to look at Blu next to the Ritz in the Sports Club LA . You can park, eat and than walk to the Opera house. Not super Cheap, food is pretty good, convient and can Treat yourself to a on a night out to the Theatre.

      Also, Jacob Wirth's is nearby and not fru-fru. It's pseudo German food. Enjoy Wicked... it's great! Just you and I defying gravity... lalala...

          It's the closest one - right across the street. But I think the Hyatt underground garage may be cheaper, which is half a block away.

          Kaze Shabu Shabu is on my list of places to try and it certainly is close to the parking lot on Allen's alley and the opera house.

              Well, I would probably opt for Thai and go to Montein on Tremont St. Good food and they're used to the theater rush. For a burger and homemade chips you can always go to Intermission Tavern. While Antico Forno's is one of my favorite places, they're not always great at keeping to a reservation time. Also, in the area is Penang on Washington. Love the food and they're quite good at moving people quickly.

                All of Chinatown. Montien. Silvertone. Intermission Tavern. Calif. Pizza Kitchen. There's a Know Fat on Washington St. for super quick.
