Some recs (early non-hotel bkfst, maybe tasty lunch) in area around M. Hopkins?
L.A. Hound in town for biz next month, with chow-spouse. Already booked into the Hopkins.
ANY decent early breakfast (i.e. NOT brunch; we're talking 6:30-7 AM start)other than hotel restaurants, to be found w/in 2-3 blocks? I HATE hotel breakfasts, and brunches. Prior post on subject seemed to concentrate on brunch-y places.
How about lunch? What's around that's tasty, and not too pretentious/pricey for lunch? We'll eat food from almost any ethnic group (although not crazy about Burmese fermented bamboo shoots) and we don't eat mammals, so brazilian/argentine "beef, beef, and beef, with some pork on the side" places don't do much for us.
