There are several places to eat at the Music Center. The Spotlight Café is a carry out with sandwiches, soup and salads. There are also two sit-down restaurants with good food.

If you park in the Music Center parking it is $9 for the whole night and it leads you right up to the theater. Lot's of room and easy access from the street.

The new Grand Park has Music Center security guards patrolling all the levels of the park. You can park anywhere around the park and walk up to the Music Center in safety. It was a nice thing to do on a pleasant evening.

Botega Louies on 7th and Grand. Varied menu. Very good food. Bar area tables too small for plate sizes served. Attentive waiter Nate.

Area restaurants and plentiful and of high quality. The restaurant at the venue, while not outstanding, is very convenient and will enhance the overall experience.

On a tight budget? Do as I did and visit the Tacos Arizas taco truck on your way there or home. It's about 2 miles west of the Ahmanson on Logan, just north of Sunset in Echo Park. Delicious carnitas, pastor and asada. Ask for radishes and carrots if you like them as they no longer have them out for customers to grab their own, but they'll give them to you if you ask.
