Pasadena Playhouse dinner tonight

We are going to the Pasadena Playhouse tonight.
Any suggestions or ideas, what is close for a good
dinner? We are open to all types of food, although
the SO isn't into thai.
As usual, will be enormously appreciative.
I realize this is too late for tonight, but I can't resist adding my two cents.
I really liked the food at El Portal as well (a nice smooth mole) but my waiter made me wait a good 15 minutes for my bill while he served alcohol to every other table. He actually looked at me several times and blatantly ignored me. Otherwise, no complaints.
I'd pick President Thai II (a couple blocks east of Lake, on Colorado, in an unassuming 2-story strip mall) which has very reasonable, well-balanced (spicy and savoury) dishes (and careful and pleasant service).
For a more elegant restaurant, Maison Akira is FABULOUS.
In between the two (in terms of price and physical setting) would be Japon Bistro, which has a very relaxing setting and fine entrees.
