Dinner near the Danforth Music Hall?

A friend and I are going to a concert at the Danforth Music Hall this Sunday and are interested in having dinner nearby before the show. I've checked previous threads for restaurants in the area, but those are all several years old. Would anyone have any recommendations for moderately priced restaurants in the area? Thanks!

  1. Allen's, just west of the theatre. Decent food and lots of beer options. All within walking distance

    1. I second Allens, make a reservation if possible.

      1. Pizza Libretto isn't far.

        1. As mariecollins suggests, Pizza Libretto is a great option if you hanker pizza and a little walk. It's about 6 blocks or so to DMH, maybe a tad more.

          If you feel like tacos, right across the street is Combine Eatery. Tried it recently and had a very nice meal. Service is pleasant and the place is quite comfortable. We were pleased.

          Allen's has never impressed me but it's also right next door.

          1. re: millygirl

            Allen's will probably be packed - but you may end up drinking with the band before they go on!

          2. There are many choices on Danforth Ave within a 10 minute walk, here are some options, mainly from closest to farther away from the Music Hall:

            - lounge menu at Globe Bistro, almost all items under $20 and 1/2 price bottles of wine on Sunday.

            - Combine Eatery as mentioned by millygirl.

            - Allen's but there are better places (you will never find me in there)

            - Asteria Souvlaki Place, 292 Danforth Ave.
            We tried this about 2 months back when just looking for a place to stop for a beer and the food is decent and low priced, but very "old school atmosphere"

            - Auld Spot Pub, 347 Danforth Ave
            Has decent food, here is the menu:

            7Numbers Danforth, 307 Danforth Ave

            Pantheon is also a good choice :
