Best Chicken Sandwich at a Sit-Down Restaurant in Downtown LA? Odd, I realize...

I work with a guy who eats only chicken sandwiches for lunch. Every day. No joke. Anyway, we just moved to downtown LA (6th and Flower), and he is looking for a decent, sit-down place (think restaurants, NOT tiny cafe) that has a chicken sandwich he could love. He's already tried CPK and Daily Grill, but say both of those places are way too crowded during lunchtime. I know, high maintainence, but I figured if any group could come up with ideas, it'd be you 'hounds. And I've already tried the whole "try something new" approach and it's not happenin'...

  1. Too bad about the "sit down" requirement. A chicken torta at Ana Maria's in Grand Central market qualifies as both a chicken sandwich AND (presumably) something new.

    Maybe the coffee shop in the Standard Hotel? I can't remember if they have a chicken sandwich, but I recall having a pretty good club sandwich of some sort a few months ago.

    1. MASA OF ECHO PARK makes a great chicken panini sandwich.

      1. They have a grilled chicken sandwich on the menu at Pete's Cafe. I havent't tried it but the burgers there are good, so it would be worth a try.

        They also have a grilled chicken breast sandwich at Engine Co. No. 28. I have had their sandwich, and it's very good, although probably a little pricey to eat every day.

        1. You might try Liberty Grill on Flower around Olympic, not exactly in the 6th & Flower area I realize, yet only a few walkable blocks, more so at some times of day than others.
