Casual, quick bite before Pantages?

We want to get to H'wood Blvd early, and only park once. Looking for pleasant, palatable, fast and convenient, not a special dining experience. Thinking Loteria Grill, but is there anything a little closer to the Pantages?

There are a number of places two blocks south of the theatre at the corner of Sunset Bl & Vine Street. I like the Tender Greens (they have a cool rear patio area) but there are lots of other choices:

1. Fabiolus (Italian)

2. Bowery (New York style bistro)

3. Chipolte (fast food Mexican)

One block further south on Leland Av, just east of Vine Street is "Off Vine" -- a fav or mine. This is comfort food at its best (pot pies, Turkey meatloaf, etc). It's a little pricey but the food is good and the environment is unique -- it is set in an old carriage house with seating in the 'front rooms' as well as on the porch. Decent wine menu. Reviews:
