ISO lunch spots near Wilshire/Rodeo

New job, new lunch places to discover. I know that Beverly Drive, just south of Wilshire, is a good street to lunch - any restaurants or take-out in particular that I must try? I've tried Mako's bento boxes but how's their lunch? TIA

  1. I love Jack n Jill's on Beverly (north of Wilshire). Great breakfast dishes, salads and sandwiches.

    1. Barney's Greengrass on the top floor of Barneys! Great view!, yummy deli sandwiches! :)


      1. I second Barney's -- awesome smoked fish and chocolate babka...nice views from porch over BH. Also like picolo paradiso (drago) on beverly just south of wilshire

        1. You could go to one of the many catering trucks. Some smell great-- there's that often stations itself north of Wilshire in a parking lot between Peck (a one-way alleyway) and Bedford. It apparently has great coffee and...ummm...brownies? I can't verify it since I'm not a brownie person. There's one that *must* be making onion rings SOMEWHERE between Wilshire and Santa Monica! I only wish I knew where it parks. Most of the trucks will make you anything within reason too.

          Champagne or jasmine truffle for dessert at Teuscher?
