Dinner Before Melody Gardot at the Orpheum Theater

My wife and are headed to LA from Madison, WI this weekend to catch Melody Gardot at the Orpheum Theater in downtown LA on Saturday night. Just looking for a recommendation for dinner before the show within walking distance to the Orpheum. I was hoping to and then back to the car.

Anything relatively close to the Orpheum that stands out? We're open to about anything with great food and unpretentious.

  1. This would be about a 12 to 15 minute walk and, while I haven't been, here is a CH review

      Artisan House (Californian)
      Colori Kitchen (Italian)
      The Parish (New American)
      Umamicatessen (eclectic)
      Wood Spoon (Brazilian)

        Excellent - thanks for all the ideas....Parish, Imamicatessen and Wood Spoon all look like they have great potential.

      2. There's a hidden jewel right nearby - Alma.!home/mainPage

        Wonderful inventive farm centric cuisine. Not sure if they have their liquor license yet though.

          Looks great as well....the liquor issue isn't a showstopper.
