I need a rec for a good, but not break-the-bank pre-theater dinner downtown for Tuesday night. It needs to be a place with shuttle service to the Music Center. However, one of the dinner guests plans to walk after dinner (still during daylight) to the Bonaventure. She is not familiar with the area, so it needs to have relatively easy directions.
I was thinking of Ciudad, but it will be happy hour and Paella night, so I fear it may be a zoo. Cafe Pinot is another option, but it is not the same as it has been in the past.
