Where to go after Indiana Jones?

I got my ticket to see Hunky Harrison on Saturday night at 5:20 at the Sherman Oaks Arclight. Chances are, I'll be ravenous and ready for adventure when I get out. I'm on my own (my husband's going on his fmaily camping trip-three days in a tent next to my mother in law and pit toilets, no thanks!-and leaving my alone)

Now, I have a cupon for Menchie's, and that just may be dinner, but I kinda want to also have a real dinner and try something fun. Or maybe go to Boneyard for my favorite burrito.

I was thinking Daichan, or maybe a non-Thai place on the same street as Menchie's? Or should I hit up a place on Tujunga?

I like the huge menu at Daichan, but want to try a few things, and am worried it will be too much!

I even toyed with going someplace like Ca Del Sole all alone.

All a tizzy. PErhaps just a big Menchie's

Any help to give this crazy woman on the town alone a direction? I prefer to stay in the East Valley.

        Harrison's son, Ben, owns it. :-)

      2. Diana, I have not been but this place looks interesting and someone just posted about a lunch they had here. Might be fun for a party of one and you can be the first one on the block to post a dinner review.

          IT looks good! But they use a lot of pistachios, which I am allergic to. The online menu looks nummy, but it is odd they list very few wines by the glass. For a tapas place?

            I forgot about your nut allergy, (I noticed one other dish with almonds as well). Their wine list may just not reflect the availability of wines by the glass? Otherwise you would be right, a tapas place normally should/would offer a lot more choices by the glass.

              still, looks like a great place for a glass and a light bite!

        2. is there a rainforest cafe within reach? ;)

          1. Hey, simple and easy on a rainy Saturday are P.F. Changs or The Cheesecake factory - both at Galleria. Plenty of other restaurants in Studio City, Sherman Oaks area, as well.
