post theatre dinner recs?

Going with friend and her parents to show tonight downtown, show ends round 9:30/10.

Any recommendations for dinner? My buddy can't eat spicy foods or red meat so ktown/chinatown likely out...looking for something mild and good but classy and nice too as parents are in tow.

Many thanks chowhounds!

    Patina-Excellent food (California French-ish), nice atmosphere, (expensive though) near the Music Center.

        These places actually stop serving before our show ends, round 930, probably because Sunday...any other leads most appreciated! thanks.

        We are heading back toward Beverly Hills area so maybe some good later night spot there or on the way thru hollywood to there that's nice and open late?

          Oops-so sorry that those restaurants aren't open late enough...hmmm. Will have to think about later night restaurants that might work...

      If you're coming back to BH then I would suggest Dan Tana's....on Santa Monica/Doheny next to BH. They stop serving around midnite on Sunday night.

        How about Caffe Roma, in BH? Open late, Italian, lovely environment, really good food and not outrageously expensive.

        Dan Tana's is fun and lively. Be prepared to wait a long time to be seated and the waiting is in a very tight space (but good for people watching!).

            in case you haven't settled on one, perhaps Jar. http://www.thejar.com They still have reservations available for tonight, and late.

              Had a great time at Dan Tana's...not much of wait, was indeed lively and the food terrific. Spumoni! thanks!

                One of my favorite places....especially Sunday night.
                Glad you enjoyed.
