Before Music Center with 11 year old
I am taking my son to see Les Mis at the Ahmanson next month, and I looking for somewhere to take him to eat before the show. We are going on a Tuesday. A shuttle is a plus, but not mandatory. I want something more interesting than CPK and something that will satisfy my foodie side.
How is the burger at Lazy Ox? Kid friendly?
I would recommend Border Grill. I know it has its detractors, but the Peruvian ceviche is fantastic and I like the tacos. And I think the place is relatively kid friendly. They also have a shuttle. It has become my go-to restaurant before the Music Center because it is so convenient, I hate paying twice for parking, and I particularly hate the Music Center lot.
I think it's probably more kid friendly than Lazy Ox, which is a very small room.
My other go-to restaurant is Roy's. They specialize in fish, but they have good ribs, which a kid might like. You can view the current menu on their website. They don't have hamburgers, but their bar has a happy hour with sliders, so maybe you could ask in advance if they would do a burger for him. Roy's also has a shuttle to the Music Center (and you can park in the lot across the street), but you should verify that it's running on the night you go.
I would have thought an 11 year old would need less space than an adult, not more! =)
I think it would be fun to take a kid that age to Wurstkuche - no shuttle, but parking is easy there and it would be a quick drive over to the Music Center afterwards.
