Dinner and a Show: The Belly Up’s Wild Note Cafe
A delicious extension of the Belly Up Tavern, the Wild Note Cafe is the perfect place to enjoy an amazing meal and drink or two before attending a concert. Residents, concert goers, and fellow merchants truly love this local hot spot. Their menu brings generous portions of pacific coastal cuisine and a dash of Mexican-style fusion, which only complements the beachside feel of the Belly Up located only a few blocks from the bean in the captivating Cedros Design District.

Chef Israel “Izzy” Balderas has created a stand-out lunch menu, with something for everyone to enjoy. Their Beef “Rad” Thai is made with filet mignon, veggies, rice noodles and a ginger tamarind sauce. If you’re looking to spice things up with some cuisine from south of the border, the Cedros Street Tacos are another amazing dish, made with marinated chicken or barbacoa, and are a local favorite among Cedros Avenue merchants who frequent the cafe. The Seared Ahi Sliders are a recommended favorite among Yelp reviews, served with truffle fries. Wild Note is not only a convenient dining spot before a show, another perk is that diners can enter the concert venue a little earlier than the masses to beat the crowd. How’s that for VIP?!
Compliment Your Meal with a Drink and Dessert
In addition to the savory menu, the Wild Note Cafe has a full bar, with some witty cocktails to compliment your main dish or dessert. Try the Keoki coffee with Kahlua and Brandy, or the French Connection, made with Grand Marnier and Courvoisier. There is also a variety of espresso and coffee drinks sans alcohol, if you’re the designated driver for the evening but need a little perk before a concert. And uh, can we just say that you absolutely must leave room for dessert!? White Chocolate Bread Pudding, or the decadent Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Pie…’nuff said!
