5 restaurants within a 5-minute walk of the Fountain

Oyster Inside

The Found Oyster on Fountain Avenue.

Dinner and a show. The perfect evening, right? At the Fountain Theatre, we got the show part covered. But the dinner part may have seemed less apparent. That’s quickly changing. As East Hollywood continues to revitalize, nearby dining options are blossoming. New restaurants, cafes and bars are sprouting up like delectable wildflowers, nestling themselves beside the longtime local favorites. Here are five we recommended. Each only a five-minute walk from the Fountain.
