I'm meeting a friend tonight for dinner before "Doubt." She wants to park at the Music Center and go to someplace nearby. I've told her the dining situation there is DIRE. I won't eat at Pinot Grill again (the restaurant on the plaza). They can't even get a hamburger right.
I'm remembering that Chowhounders have posted about an Italian place, maybe across the street from DWP and the Dorothy Chandler. I can't remember the name. Any other ideas? I don't care for Patina, and I've heard that Kendall's is awful. Help! TIA. P.S. I have done several Chowhound searches but can't find anything within walking distance.
