Pre-theater dinner in Toluca Lake

Golem Feb 11, 2014 06:01 PM

Going to the Falcon Theater (Riverside Dr. near Pass Ave) this Saturday night. Any ideas for one-stop dining and theater? Don't want to go to the Smokehouse, or Bob's. A bar would be nice. And don't want to break the bank. Thoughts?

    Timmy Nolan's down the street is in walking distance, they have a bar and good food. it where we eat most of the time before the falcon. just leave yourself plenty of time, service isnt the speediest. http://timmynolans.net/

    A couple months ago we did Mos and thought the burgers were good and they have a bar.

      for martinis. In that case, you have to do the Smokehouse. Follow it with some of that cheesy garlic bread.

      But for martinis you should really go to Musso and Franks.

        We may try Smokehouse. Last time we did it, it wasn't fun, but that was many moons ago. Might try it again.

        Anyplace with a bar? A martini would be a good pre-theater drink.

          Olive & thyme for wine/cheese

          Lucy's 51 has a bar I think. It also doesn't seem like the martini kind of place.

          yes. Both Seeetsalt or Bistro Provencd will do nicely or maybe Novo Cafe.

              Bistro Provence is probably the best restaurant in the area, with beer/wine only. In the Vons center north of the 134 freeway.
              Prosecco is pretty good as well if you prefer Italian, and can be one-stop parking.
