Going to House of Blues next weekend & looking for a place for dinner before the show. I have read some of the threads about the Gaslamp and it doesn't look like there is much that Chowhounders are excited about in this area.
Any suggestions? Is food at HOB worthy? I had one person recommend it to me recently.
We'd love to be able to walk if possible... but if there truly isn't anything in the area, we are willing to drive a short way.
Also heard good things about Merk. Is this within walking distance??
