Eats before seeing the Groundlings
I'm going to see the Groundlings tonight for their 10pm show. I have some visitors in town that are a couple. I'm looking to take them somewhere that is fun and hip somewhere near the show (walking distance...if possible). They aren't super adventurous with food, so I would say Italian, New American, or something else basic, but nicely done. I'm looking for a price of about mid $20s for entrees or less.
Any help is really appreciated. Thanks!!
definitely definitively The Foundry. About 6 blocks west on Melrose. IMO, Table 8 has gone extremely far downhill, sadly.
For Italian - head to Angeli Caffe (beer & wine only, if that makes a difference). Get the gnocchi if they are serving it... so good! The room is a bit cramped/crowded, but I've been pleased with the food and it will work for your unadventurous eaters. It's walking distance from the Groundlings, so that's an additional bonus. You'll want to make a reservation vs. just showing up.
