Dinner suggestions near Riviera Theater?

Wondering if anyone has any suggestions for an early dinner walking distance from the Riviera Theater. Any type of great food will do! Thanks!

  1. Sun Wah is just to the north, , festive, good Chinese. There's a Mexican cafe just north of Lawrence on Broadway, but I have no idea if it's good. Many other Asian choices on Argyle (5000 north), starting at Broadway and going east a few blocks.

    1. Check out all the recommendations in this discussion:

      The Riviera is a half block from the Aragon, so all the recommendations and distances there are equally applicable.

        "Great" might be a stretch, but I found the food at Fat Cat to be decent when in the area before a Green Mill (in same area) show:

      2. Thanks for the suggestions. We ended up eating at the Ethiopean Restaurant on the corner and it was quite good. Friendly service and a reasonably priced nice wine list.
