Dinner near the Groundlings?

We are a group of 6 visiting the Groundlings Theatre tomorrow night - would love a rec for dinner: beer must be available for this group!

      Great! I'll check it out - yes, parking once is preferrable!

        Golden State on Fairfax. Great burgers & beer.

    2. There's Frankie's if you like old school Italian.

        Hey, we like old school Italian...what do you get there (if you have been enough to have a favorite or two)? We've never been. What about Lala's across the street? Another place I've never been.

          Here's a very belated answer, but we ate at Lala's before a Groundlings show last week. We chose it because we have visited Argentina a couple of times and love the cuisine, and this was a very worthy representation of a meal in BA. I particularly enjoyed the entrana al ajo (which was also a bargain), and the salads, chicken and pasta dishes were all very good. We wish it was closer to our home in CT!

            We did pizzeria Mozza pretty close too. I like the groundlings

              A Groundlings show that will help you work up an appetite:
              Head to Frankie's after or Village Idiot.

      2. smoke oil salt, catty corner to the Groundlings.
