Arclight hollywood

seeing 730 show on saturday - anything new and easy to deal with (ie quick cuz limited time from baby sitter arrival to showtime) nearby? we were thinking connie and teds but i think we need something a bit more low key and relaxing…i don’t want to be rushing my kishkees out…a plus for my wife would be simply prepared fresh fish. for me full bar would be a plus.

And because I always love hounds’ (ne Food Talkers’) takes on films, Sicario

gracias!

Hungry Cat


#3

good call – i mentioned that to my wife last night and she laughed at the name—been a while since ive been…works for me, will see about her!


#4

Littlefork is a nice alternative. Hungry Cat is a nice place too but my experiences have had its ups and downs.


#5

Hungry Cat. Not sure how quick it is. Have to tell them on arrival.
Films to avoid: Phoenix, The Visit.


#6

In the neighborhood and all walking distance, Tender Greens, Shophouse, Veggie Grill, Roscos, Stella Barra, Umani, and there is a new 800 Degrees but I don’t know if it’s open just yet. “Everest” was truly riveting. “99 Homes” also worth seeing, great performances.


#7

good call on that too, thank you


#8

lots of good options – i’ll come home tonight and let the boss decide – at least i’m not seeing a rom-com!


#9

black mass?

im just glad it’s not yet another showing of Frozen frankly!


#10

Birch on Cahuenga ???

Black Mass should be fucking dope. I’ve heard Johnny Depps is fucking incredible in it.

and that ain’t no fucking joke.


#11

I’ll check that too Kevin, thanks. Lemme know if you see black mass

Hi JJ,

I’d also 2nd the votes for:

  • Hungry Cat (right across the street) - If you’re in the mood for the Raw Bar (since it’s so hot right now), some fresh Oysters, Chilled Shrimp, etc. might be nice and quick.

  • Tender Greens (across the street heading East).

  • Stella Barra (formerly Stella Rosa) - Solid pizzas kinda in the vein of Mozza but not as good IMHO. But solid. Right in the same complex as Arclight (so not a lot of walking).


#13

thanks for those tips!


#14

Stella Barra has become our go-to for pre Arclight movies. It’s not Mozza, but it’s a fraction of the price and really solid Neapolitan pie. Full bar, too.


#15

Good lookin out. Will take it up the flagpole and report back. Haven’t been there but we like olio and mozza so sounds like a good fit And right there a plus.


#16

#17
