Dinner at Mann Music Center

Hi...I'm headed to the Mann Music Center tomorrow night with my spouse, fifteen year old daughter and her boyfriend (eek!) and wondered about the options for dinner there before the concert. According to the Mann center website there is a $46 pp buffet from the Stephen Starr restaurant which is more expensive that I have in mind. There also seems to be a cafe but they don't have a menu or prices. Can anyone tell me what the cafe is like and how expensive it is? Is it cafeteria style? And is it BYOB? Thanks for any advice.

  1. Do you need to eat *at* the Mann? If you're going to the Mann from center city, Distrito is on the way and is very good, and you won't spend anywhere near $46 per person.

      Yes we are planning to eat at the Mann. Coming from the suburbs. I though it would allow the teens to have some time to wander about on their own before the concert rather than have an awkward meal with the parents!
