Lunch This Saturday
- lawyerbriefs Oct 17, 2006 05:41 PM
My wife and I will be in LA overnight for my law school roommate's 50th birthday party at Jillian's. We're staying at the Holiday Inn Hollywood Walk of Fame (Highland near Hollywood Blvd.) We're looking for a lunch place in the area, but will have a car and don't have to stay too close to the hotel. Price is not an issue, although we don't want anything too elaborate or filling, as the party starts at 6. Suggestions?
Here are a few options, depending on your taste, all involving a drive: Campanile on La Brea just north of Wilshire (their daily soups are great, as are the sandwiches); Il Pastaio in Beverly Hills (which affords the strolling option afterwards, may be too heavy); The Ivy on Robertson (for celeb spotting, IMO overpriced, but you can go for the grilled salad and have a nice time on the patio - reservation a must); Pane e Vino (for patio dining) - my favorite option, though, would be to head up through the Cahuenga pass and go to Katsu Ya on Ventura and Colfax for sushi (don't skip the 4 1/2 roll!).
