Easy, quick dinner near Orpheum Theater in downtown

Going to a 7pm show next Saturday at the OT and looking for a close (walking would be great)spot for dinner for 4 extremely young 50 year old gals. Not a bar though, we're not drinkers especially and some of us aren't adventurous eaters. Really looking for American food, not expensive but certainly not fast food. I've read other postings and quite a few of the places recommended a year ago are now closed. Colori Kitchen was our pick (yes I know it's Italian) until we just found out it doesn't open for dinner until 6pm so that's not enough time.
Anyone have any brilliant ideas or should we go for a late lunch before we leave and then eat afterwards?

  1. Wood Spoon opens at 6pm for great Brazilian food. Very close by. If you want to go after they are open till 11pm

    L.A. Chapter at the Ace Hotel across the street also opens at 6pm for dinner

    Also Umami Burger is open all day.

    1. I had looked at Wood Spoon but it's that 6pm thing. We really are looking for someplace that opens at 5pm since our show is at 7pm. Thanks for the suggestions, maybe we'll try WS another time. I've now found out that one wants to go straight home as home for her is San Diego.

      1. Lot's of great food stands at Grand Central Market. Open all day.

        1. Stocking Frame.

          Right down the street on 9th.

          1. Thanks, I'll check them out.
