Dining near The Laugh Factory

My husband and I are going to the Laugh Factory on Saturday and are looking for dining options near there. Walking distance is a plus, but not a requirement.

  1. Your best choice, conveniently located next door, is probably Greenblatt's. The pastrami is solid, the matzoh ball soup too, and there is lots of wine. Also open rather late, if you want to snack before and eat after.

    Otherwise...Laurel Hardware? Pink Taco?

    I vote deli.

      laurel hardware still has that sign right outside, right ?

      and it looks like a hardware store if you are whizzing by ?

    2. How about Gorge? Looks like 9 blocks away based on the address numbering. Walkable.

        +1 for Gorge, but it's not within walking distance IMO. Same with Night+Market, which is a couple of blocks west of Gorge. But I highly recommend both. As for something within walking distance...The Pikey or Connie & Ted's?

        Some other places within ~1 mile: Salt's Cure, The Hart + the Hunter, Eveleigh.

      2. Zankou Chicken is just a block away.

        1. I agree with Greenblatt's. Good sandwiches....really good Cobb salad. Great wine selections. You can buy a bottle with very inexpensive corkage. And there's parking in the back.

          1. Greenblatt's will do in a pinch. And then you don't have to worry about parking.

            It's a win-win situation, except for the fact that Greenblatt's is ok at best though i really like their dark meat turkey sandwich there.
