Dinner & Drinks for this weekend

Hi all! Coming into town with some friends from San Diego this weekend and stumped on what to do for dinner/drinks. We are staying in Koreatown and going to a show at the Wiltern. Looking for good food and a fun, unique atmosphere. Highly considering some Korean BBQ, but wondering if on a Saturday night there will be a long wait? We are trying to make it to a show so we will probably do dinner on the earlier side (maybe 6:30?) but don't want to push our luck waiting on a table forever. Not averse to traveling out of K-town but don't want to wander too far. Not looking for expensive, just tasty/fun/good atmosphere/no crazy wait!

Another question is about bars: worth it to pop over to the bar at the Line for a drink before/after show? I know there are some speakeasy style bars in K-town but again, not looking for anything with a line!

  1. Now this sounds like a good time to recommend the new Roy Choi place, POT.

          I fly by the duck everytime for those buffalo crispy, perfect classic sauce and dusting of blue cheese crumble throughout so no need for blue cheese mayo tard on side...well then I fly back to the duck.

            I agree. nice onion rings. surprising good deal on lamb chops and other misc. items. nice juke box and bar.

          2. Pot Bar at the Line is a fun spot, kind of has a hip Miami vibe to it (for purposes of full disclosure I've never been to Miami and so have no idea why I think this). Cocktails are on the pricey side - around 14 to 16 dollars a pop - but they're creative and well concocted.

            Never been to Pot restaurant so I'll take Wittgenstein's advice and pass this over in silence.

            1. Options for before, some have already been mentioned.
              The Prince (option for later as well)

              R-Bar for after.
