Dinner before the Greek Theater...where?

Where would you eat dinner before the Greek Theater on a Thursday night (tomorrow night!) around 5:00pm?

Any Asian is preferred, but we are open to all other cuisines as well.

Thank you in advance!

  1. Depends on how far you want to stray from the venue. If you want to stay relatively close by (down the hill), I would suggest Little Dom's.

    If you don't mind driving a bit further, there's Thai town and you have your choices like Jitlada and Ruen Pair, amongst others.

      Thanks, ipse...your ideas are helpful and appreciated!

      Wandering from the site is definitely an option, as in Atwater Village, Hollywood, Los Feliz, Koreatown...but where?

    2. Try The Palace on Hillhurst. It's fine for a pre-show feast.....great for groups.

        this is the old chai dynasty right? if so, good call.

      2. Hillhurst has tons of options for you, my picks being Little Doms, Farfalla and Mexico City (which is fun, loud and kitchy, but a lot of people don't love the food...I, however, do) There is also Mess Hall, which I haven't been to, but have heard good things about.

          Farfalla is good. Maybe En Sushi next door (haven't been to the location since Katsu departed).

        2. Mother Dough is my fav for Greek these days.
          If not there are many Thai Town options
          Here's a recent rundown of Thai from a local blogger

            Bob, is Mother Dough a pizza place or has it morphed into a Greek place (or is there more than one MD?)?

              "Greek" is in reference to close proximity to the Greek Theatre, not the type of food. Mother Dough is a pizza place. As far as I know, there's only one.

                Doh! Thanks...(Double Doh! - being pizza centric)
