lightning round dinner before Merriam on Wednesday

We have a concert at Merriam on Wednesday and are going to be rushing like lunatics to make it in time, so we'll have maybe 10-15 minutes to scarf down dinner. Are there any compelling options in the area? I'd like to just park once for both time & cost, and am not knowledgable about the quick bites in the area. It's Ben Harper so we won't be dressed up (or afraid of making a mess of ourselves).

Thanks for any ideas anyone may have!

  1. You can always go to the food court in the Bellevue. Not a great option but its quick, close to the theater, and everyone can get what they want.

    1. 10-15 mins. is tight, even for fast eats. But Le Pain Quotidien is close. Mexico on the Square or Chipotle also options.

        Le Pan Quotidien is close, but they're not fast, in my experience. There's a Pizza place on Locust between Broad & 13th where you could get a couple of slices - that should be quick.

      2. thanks everybody. this is exactly what i was looking for!
