Dinner near North Star Bar - 27th & Poplar Sts

I am going with a friend to a concert at the North Star Bar next Saturday night and need a place for dinner. Last time we were there - we went to Rembrandt's at 23rd Street. It was good but I am looking for a new place to try.

Some people that are attending the concert are going to London Grill. Jack's Firehouse was also mentioned.

Off street parking would be a plus!

  1. The Belgian Cafe on 21st & Green. It's a bit more of a walk to North Star compared to the fairmount restaurants, but not that much.

    1. You should think about Bridgids. Probably my favorite place around there. I also like Aspen, or at least I used to like it quite a bit - it's been years since I ate there.
      Not a big fan of Jack's. Or Rembrandts.

      1. i definitely recommend trio, which is where i ate last time i went to a show at north star. it's a cute little thai BYOB, and i think their food is fabulous (if a little pricey, as far as asian food goes). i think it's at 26th and brown, one of the closest places to the venue.

        1. This is a tough one for me because I don't like The Belgian Cafe, Rembrandt's, Aspen, Trio, London Grill or Jack's.

          I haven't tried Bridgid's yet though.

          I can't think of anything within walking distance I would choose to spend money at. St Stephen's Green is decent but a bit further away...

          1. The only place I can think of near there that hasn't been mentioned is the Bishop's Collar. I haven't been there in a really long time though. I'm not a fan of London Grill or the Belgian Cafe, I had some dishes at Trio that were really good (apps, mostly) and some that weren't (entrees).
