Wiltern - Any new recs?

I was just checking the board and it doesn't appear this has been brought up lately. Going to the Wiltern and am looking for a place nearby for drinks and dinner/apps. It seems Opus is no longer an option (which is too bad). I saw the rec for Ruby Table. Anything else?

  1. whatever you do - do not go to the restaurant connected to the wiltern. went there a while back before a show, they had a pre-set menu that was very limited, over priced and the food sucked!

    1. Ruby Table is great, and pretty much your only casual option. The place itself isn't much to look at. Think airport bar. But they have kirin on tap, tasty apps, happy hour prices, and very friendly staff. We went in before a show with a party of ten and had a great time for cheap.

      1. I like the very cold pitchers of beer and fried chicken at Hite pre-Wiltern shows.

          I'm taking the train on Thursday and I was planning on hitting BOHO for the half price beer and pizza and then getting back on the train at Vine. Now I'm seriously considering Hite.

        2. Haven't been to La Defence myself but it's within walking distance.

          1. Went to pizza man last night before the wilco show. It is the korean version of CPK -- which for a quick bite before a show is not bad. Got the sampler app platter - wings, fries, mozzarella sticks, chicken sticks. Also got the bolgolgi pizza. Sit at the bar and split a pitcher of a beer and the night starts out right.
