Wicked Tonight at QET

Any thoughts where to dine pre-theatre? Haven't thought about this it til now actually. My friend just phoned and said they are on their way over! Friend wants to drive and park downtown. I'm looking for reasonable priced cuisine tonight, not more than $20 an entree and walking distance to QET. What it is, doesn't matter though I don't really want to do chains - none of them. Thanks for any thoughts!

  1. What do you consider walkable? 10 - 20 minutes walk?
    Off the top of my head some places that might work.
    Nuba (Hastings & Cambie)
    Salsa & Agave (Pacific & Davie)
    Peaceful (Davie & Seymour)
    Juno Sushi (Davie & Richards)
    Sanpachi Ramen (Robson & Bute)
    Dirty Apron Deli (Beatty & Pender)

    Nuba Cafe

      Yes and thanks for all the good thoughts! I can't go to Sanpachi again's only Santouka for me when I'm downtown! :-)

      My friend will probably like your Salsa & Agave recommendation. Thanks!

    2. We went to the show last night and dined at Lupo pre show. It was close (5 min walk) and we were in and out within an hour. We did tell them before hand that we had to leave at a certain time for the show though.

        Thanks selena... that is a good thought! I'll report back with what the decision was. :-)

        1. re: selena03

          Lupo or Cibo? I know Cibo was doing a pre-theatre menu awhile back which was a good deal.

            Lupo it was, and what a good choice! Thanks for the reminder of it. Wasn't cheap like I planned to do as it ended up being $150 for two with tip but that was 3 courses and a drink each. It was worth every penny though! Service was great and the food was amazing tonight. I had pappardelle with rabbit and it was beyond delicious. Perfect pasta, perfect seasoning, perfect rabbit, superb dish! Here's some pix (rabbit pasta didn't turn out):

            1. Crostini trio which had ham & eggplant, beans & quail eggs, mushroom was the third one.

            2. Meatlballs with polenta & gorgonzola

            3. Special of dungeness crab ravioli with butternut squash & baby shrimp with lobster bisque sauce.

            4. Chocolate raspberry tart.

            5. Tiramisu.

              Great! I am glad you had a good experience. I love that chocolate raspberry tart. One of my dining companions also had the rabbit dish you enjoyed and she liked it as well.

                Hmmm, looks like the Crostini picture disappeared. Here it is:

                  Hey, the meatballs are gone too! Here they are:

                  PS. I would just mention that the tiramisu was not a great dessert. It looked nice and I finished it, however, it lacked the taste of traditional tiramisu which I was wanting to taste.
