Tonight!! - near the Troubador

Last minute suggestions needed. Going to the Troubador for a show tonight and looking for a relatively hassle-free, not very expensive place to eat beforehand. Doesn't have to be particularly chow-worthy, but, if I really didn't care what I was going to eat, I wouldn't have posted this request. Any type of food/ethnicity welcome. Would love to do Dan Tana's tonight, but don't think we'll get there early enough, nor do I anticipate having that much time - and if I were going to DT's, I'd want the time to linger over cocktails and a full meal in the bar/front room.

      For future reference, I usually go to Flavor of India, virtually next door to the Troubadour (well, next door to Dan Tana's). It's fine. Haven't ever sought to go there unless I was going to the Troubadour, but if I am . . . .

    2. I would sit at the bar at Mercato di Vetro. It will be quick and lively. Alternatively, you could sit outside at Trattoria Amici. Its pretty good Italian and a nice patio. Not a full bar. Not a huge fan, but the Palm is also just down the street.

        Mercato di Vetro has my vote.
        Good pick.

          I have had a couple of good meals there. It reminds me a bit of an Italian Mezze (which I really miss).

      2. Sur?
        Cafe d'Etoile?
        Tortilla Republic?
        Don't even honestly know if these places are any good or open.....

        1. rainbow bar and grill, up the hill on sunset, keeping with the rock n roll. steak sandwich, pizza, fried mozzarella cubes and strong drinks...

          1. Carney's. Mostly because they have their own free parking.
