I am seeing a 2 pm matinee and looking for a good asian lunch place near the theatre. I don't want Ruby Foos but something like a noodle soup, bento box, or something like that.

      Sapporo has decent (reportedly authentic) noodle soups. I thought the broth was thin and not that interesting last I tried, but lots of people love it. It's a bit of a tight squeeze to eat at the restaurant.

      I also think Onigashima is tasty, but a few Japanese people have dissed it on this board, so I try to keep my enthusiasm under wraps. Plenty of room to sit.

      Wu Liang Ye is decent for Szechuan.
