Looking for a restaurant(s) that shuttles to and from the Music Center on Friday nights. My friends want to eat before the performance; I think it starts at 7:30 or 8:00 (at the Mark Taper)

      Tku forgot to mention that there are restaurant on the grounds of the Music -- the Patina-owned Grill (mediocre outdoor burgers, chicken, fish, and other grilled foods); Otto's, reasonably decent fare which is INCREDIBLY convenient; and Impresario Ristorante, a very decent prix fixe buffet on the fifth floor of the Chandler which is only open pre-theatre when there are performances in the Chandler (probably a go on a Friday night).

        I can heartily recommend Nick and Stef's. Probably one of the best (and most authentic) caesar salads in the city and their dry aged beef is deeeeeelicious. Note: they have many different kinds of sauces to offer-- but don't feel hemmed into making a choice. If you gently prod them enough, they'll give you a sampling of all of them, which will only add to your enjoyment. Then after dinner, you literally walk down one flight of stairs in the plaza, where a shuttle picks you up for a two block ride to the Music Center. Couldn't be more convenient.
