Recommendations near CBS studios?

P3R3 May 2, 2012 12:18 PM

I am taking a couple friends out to dinner after a show at CBS on fairfax and wondering what would be the best bet for dinner. I am trying to keep it to around $30-40pp, but we could exceed that (no providence or picca :( though ). One of the people in our group is not terribly adventurous though I have taken them to animal before. I was thinking about trying Son of a Gun but I seem to always go to animal every time I'm over there and maybe trying something off the wall different would be cool?

    Son of a Gun would be great. There's also Playa and AOC. I also think that Tasca is a hidden gem.

      You could sit in the bar room at Red Medicine.

              It was really really good. Had just a light lunch of the Mussels and Mushroom/Sage flatbread. Those were the best mussels I have ever had!

            3Twenty Wine Lounge on La Brea and Third has very good small plates, a great selection of wines (by the pour or the glass) and a terrific owner (Edgar) who will recommend wines if you'd like. I work near there, and it's my favorite place in the neighborhood.
