Suggestion for the Entertainment District?

cynalan Aug 8, 2013 05:56 PM

We're taking my 17 year old niece to see Anything Goes at the Princess of Wales Theatre on Saturday. We're looking for a mid range lunch spot that she might enjoy, i.e. something a bit more upscale than a roadhouse atmosphere like Dunn's or Loose Moose. My preference would be something within walking distance of the theatre. Most of the restaurants that I frequent in the area are not open for lunch so I'm looking for good ol' CH help. Thanks.

      Le Select is only three blocks away. Lovely spot and interesting fare.

        If you're willing to walk a bit further west, this would be my recommendation as well. If you're willing to walk a bit more north, there's Strada241.

        If you're wanting to stick to the Entertainment district for lunch, I'll second Khao san road, Yuzu, and Jules. I'll also throw in Queen Mother Cafe for a Laotian twist.

            Thanks to everyone for the great suggestions. We ended up at Le Select Bistro. We hadn't been there in years and enjoyed the summer weather on the patio. Food and service were both excellent. The play wasn't bad either.
