Recommendations near CBS studios?

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?

      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.

                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!

            You could sit in the bar room at Red Medicine.

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