Is there a liquor license in all this? I might get thirsty.

Your checkered floor reminds me of some NOLA spots. I'm thinking K-Paul's and another spot outside the Quarter that may have been a pharmacy (?) at one point?

Rumaki ???

To be honest, they are better. There's a similar app for $9 at Luggage Room in Pas.

Rumaki ???

From the net: "Rumaki may be an unfamiliar appetizer these days, but it sported quite a hip reputation in the middle of last century. It first appears on the menus of tiki restaurants in San Francisco and Los Angeles in the 1940s. Trader Vic’s founder Victor Bergeron claimed it had Chinese origins, by way of Hawaii, but in actuality it was likely his own creation inspired by angels on horseback, an English pub snack of bacon-wrapped oysters."

I think people make it at home, some substituting a black olive or maybe a date for the liver.

People still go to Spago and all the reservation stuff and traffic and valet to get pizza?

If can't get into French Laundry for 50th bday where should we eat in Los Angeles?

It's not better or worse on the stomach, empty or full. It's better for the flavor of certain drinks, e.g., the Negroni. You don't want the botanicals conflicting with the taste of the Campari and the vermouth. OTOH, you want the botanicals in a G & T.
But, hey, you could do worse than drinking Sapphire with everything.

Just order an app. You'll be fine.

Proof is proof. Botanticals have nothing to do with that. It's about the flava of the drink. Plymouth or one of the Old Tom gins is best for this drink, i.e., less botanical.

Not recommended on an empty stomach unless you want to check out early. You want one of the less botanical gins.

The BK next to PCC has been leveled and a C-f-A is on the way. Hmmm?

Vesper Martini is the best: 2 oz. gin; 1 oz. vodka; 1/2 oz. Lillet. Shaken, not stirred.

Nice place that's easy access from Encino?

I'd try the Red Room in Encino or maybe (if it's not too crowded) Chablis in Tarzana. The food won't be as expensive as the over the hill spots so you might want to invest in a good bottle or two to bring.

Easy, quick dinner near Orpheum Theater in downtown

FWIW, you're only half a mile away from Nickel Diner on Main.

Aroma Cafe Hollywood - Report

Can't speak to this location, but the Encino/Tarzana rendition is very loud. The waitresses are probably working on expired visas looking for green card marriages. There's a lot of patio smoking. You get a lot of "scene" for your money.

Near the Greek? Tired of Mexico City and Little Dom's - other ideas?

I've been to shows at the Orpheum. The doors open early around 7 and the shows generally start between 8 and 8:15. Remember they need some time to get the crowd to line up and get wrist bands and run the security gauntlet. And they do want to sell pre-show drinks.

It's doors at 7. Show's at 8. They need time to sell drinks and souvenirs.

Well, Lay's BBQ chips seem to feature some paprika. And you could join (or get your firm to join) Amazon Prime (free shipping).
