Quick Help Needed--Pre Symphony Dinner, not Absinthe

Anyone have any great ideas? Walking distance to Symphony. Any type of food ok.

  1. Bodega Bistro is my go-to for dinner around the Civic Center. It's nice enough to be a place you want to include in an evening out, but not expensive, and I like the lightness of Vietnamese food when I'm going to be sitting in a dark concert hall.

    1. I haven't been in a while, but Paul K's used to be OK. We also like Bistro Clovis. Again it has been several years.

        1. Obviously too late to reply about where to eat, but wanted to say I hope you enjoy the performance. We saw Hilary perform during open rehearsal. Next time for quick meals before 7:00 there's La Boulangere. Quick and okay food.
