I’ll be in town for a few days primarily to see a production of Gatz at the Skirball. It’s a long production, and we will have a 90 minute meal break.
The production has helpfully arranged deals with local restaurants as linked here.
Are there any that stand out as “Yes! That would be really quite nice.” or “Heyyy maybe you would be better at a 7-11 with a taquito.”
My ideal would be to find a place in the immediate vicinity with table service, or upscale cafeteria?. Warm food, maybe serves wine–I’m concerned about just winging it via Yelp. I want to be back in my seats on time, and feel like I’ve had a nice meal.
In addition, I’m staying at the Jane Hotel which is a stone’s throw away from the Whitney Museum. I eat everything (but shellfish). My dining companion eats everything but isn’t a fish fan in general. He can usually find other things on the menu. We are not looking to have the $$$$ experience on this trip, but are happy to keep dinners to $40-50 per person before alcohol or tip. Any advice for these Angelenos?
I’ve been steered to Russ & Daughters for my morning coffee needs. I’m happy to do so, also I really prefer never to spend money in a chain. Any other places that have good, solid coffee and eats that I can patronize is greatly appreciated.
