I'm wondering if there's any Chow-worthy food with walking distance of Hollywood and Highland. The only places I can recall from the board are Vert and Musso and Frank. I don't remember many from staying there 2 years ago either.
I'm planning to stay there for 3 days without a car and would like to be able to walk to good food, as well as take the subway or bus to it. I'm interested in places where food is more important than scene (if there's scene, fine, but I'm here for the food). Pretty much any cuisine except Indian, all price brackets below the most expensive. Breakfast is the most important meal--I'm likeliest to be around for that, followed by dinner, then lunch. I'm thinking roughly the area bounded by Gardner on the west, Vine on the east, Franklin on the north, Santa Monica on the south.
There are motels near the Hollywood & Western subway station, which has got to be better chow-wise, but I wonder about safety on foot at night. Similarly with Vermont/Sunset, which is also getting to be a bit far east of theatres, museums, and such.
