ISO restaurant recs near Universal but not on City Walk

Looking for nice pre-concert dining that isn't on City Walk but close enough to Universal that we could enjoy a leisurely dinner while still getting to the show on time.

      Rustic Spoon on Lankershim has been consistently good. It's Thai fusion.

        Kansas City BBQ on Magnolia near Vineland. Pretty informal, though.
