No Dinner in Clubland
Yesterday, Dave and I decided to decompress from an extraordinarily worky work week by seeing as many movies as we could. To the Paramount we went, where we took in Hero and Wimbledon back to back (Hero was a lot better than I’d expected, whereas Wimbledon pretty much met my expectations exactly). Then we bought tickets for Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, and had just over an hour to kill before the show, in which we planned to eat dinner.
No dice. Why is the area around the Paramount so crap when it comes to restaurants? That is, if you don’t like sushi, or pub food, or Hooters, or overpriced neo-TGIFriday’s (see: Montana’s, Al Frisco’s, Alice Fazooli’s). We tried to go to Little India but it was too crowded. So after twenty-five fruitless minutes of walking around, we ended up at a goddamn Subway. So unsatisfying. We should have just had street dogs.
Are there any decent restaurants within quick walking distance of the Paramount? Our requirements are that there have to be decent vegetarian options, and some reasonably healthy options, because Dave doesn’t eat meat, and we are both conscious of our diets. And, we don’t like sushi. But other than that: go!
