    Just a small point, but The Landmark Theaters on Pico near Westwood Blvd. are in WLA and the Landmark owned Regent Theater is on Broxton in Westwood (Village).

    So, assuming like everybody else, you meant WLA, then within easy walking distance (as you have free parking in the Westside Pavillon) and not previously mentioned so far:

    Jaipur - Indian

        I agree that Jaipur is a decent choice, if you are in the neighborhood. Their eggplant curry is especially good.

      How about Gyu-Kaku across the street? Or Alcazar Express on Westwood and Wellworth? Maybe Nook on Santa Monica, a little further away?

        although nook is a favorite of this board, i would respectfully recommend against it if you have any intention of ordering fish.

          La Serenata is just down the street and is pretty reasonable. Westside Tavern is very good but a bit more expensive.

        The Apple Pan is just across the street. Really good burgers and pie. An LA landmark.

          First place that came to my mind as well. Get the hickory burger and don't forget a slice of banana cream pie for dessert

          Westside Tavern is the obvious choice - right next to the theater, AND it's Chow-worthy. It's not overly expensive at all.

              but it's impossibly crowded on the Weekend evenings - lines are like the Cheesecake factory. If you time it right, you'll be o.k. on the weeknights.

              Try Pastina on Westwood Blvd. between Pico and Olympic for reasonably priced Italian food (pastas are especially good) or Tlapazola on Gateway for Oaxacan food.
