Good place for dinner near Melrose/Highland?
I'll be going to Comedy Sportz which is close to Melrose and N. Highland and I have no clue about the restaurants in that area. Any place close that would be decent to eat at? Nothing overly expensive ($15 or less for an entree would be great). Thanks!
I'm a big fan of California Chicken Cafe. Hot Wings is also good. In the other direction is Tere's Mexican Grill at Melrose and Cahuenga.
Tough price point. Tere's or Mario's Peruvian may be your best bets. Pinks is also pretty close by, fwiw. I also like the East India Grill (and their eggplant bharta in particular), and it's not too far.

Angeli Caffe may fit the price range- maybe a dollar or two over, but the food is great there. It's on Melrose near Poinsettia i believe. Further down Melrose at Gardner is Antonios for Mexican. It's around that price range as well. There is also Lala's which isn't half bad. Tere's is also great. Sante LaBrea is next to East Inda Grill - though i haven't been there in many years. i know a lot of people who love California Chicken Cafe. it's not my first choice, but it's not bad.
