    Spumante on Magnolia is walking distance. There is also a Pitfire Pizza (very casual). Finally, Bow and Truss is a modern tapas place within walking distance.

      Thanks so much.
      I also heard about The Eclectic and The Federal Bar.
      Any feedback on those two?

        While The Federal has food, it is more of a bar atmosphere to me. The food at Eclectic is simple and pretty decent.

        Spumante is a wonderful Italian restaurant. The food is terrific and the service is good. I highly recommend it! It's on Magnollia just one block east of Lankershim.

          Thanks for all your suggestions!
          As it turns out I think we're heading across the street to The Federal Bar for cocktails and appetizers after the matinee.
