Pantages theatre eats-question re:Prix Fixe at Wood and Vine or any other great deals?

  • m

Getting ready to go see Book of Mormon next week at the Pantages with two foodies and a vegetarian who prefers vegan. I've read the old threads on eating near the Pantages and because of that am now between Cleo, Off Vine and Wood and Vine if we want to eat within walking distance. I'm pretty much scratching off Hungry Cat because although it sounds good there's not a lot there for the vegetarian. Also a little worried about recent bad reviews on Yelp about all three previously mentioned choices. Also noise level at Cleo sounds pretty bad for conversation before the show. All of us are well past the clubbing stage of our lives :)

But we are driving up from parts south and while it would be fun to be within walking distance of the theater it's not 100% necessary. Knowing the proximity of K-town to the theater I was wondering if there's a great Korean recommendation nearby.

Also I saw a note on a thread about a prix fixe pre theater meal at Wood and Vine but there's nothing about it on their website. Anyone done that or know more? Are there any other great deals to be had nearby? We're going on a Tuesday and while we want good food as part of what we hope to be a memorable night, price is also a concern. Are there any great deals?

Thanks,

  1. Deets on the W+V pre-theatre prix fixe (how Manhattan of them!): http://laist.com/2012/09/12/dinner_th...

    The article said 3 courses, but on the restaurant menu it was 4. I've done the Monday prix-fixe, and they are in the same vein, so don't expect huge portions, but it's perfectly filling, and there's cheap beer during happy hour.

    Pantages is 3.5 miles from Ktown. That's not close, especially since it'll be all surface streets.

      Thanks so much for the info and the link! Exactly what I was looking for.

    2. There's no good Korean in proximity to the Pantages, unfortunately. But there is plenty of Thai.

        Thanks anyway, it's been awhile since I ate in the area :)

      2. Still wondering about Cleo's noise level- it is really that bad? Thanks
