Mellow, solo lunch in Studio City/NoHo area
Me and a good book want to sit down to a nice, relaxed lunch in the Studio City/NoHo area where we won't be overrun by boisterous business luncheoners etc. Definitely want a sit-down, table service kind of spot, though. Low to moderate price, food choices in the sandwich-salad fare range. Places I've frequented included Aroma on Tujunga, Chez Nous in Toluca Lake, and the Eclectic Cafe. Just had sushi yesterday so it's off my radar; trying to be health conscious, so nothing fried or carb-centric. Any suggestions?
How about one of these:
Leaf Cuisine 14318 Ventura S.O.- vegan/vege/kosher/organic
Leonor's Mexican and Vegetarian Restaurant 12445 Moorpark Studio City 818-762-0660
Star Wok -Chinese
4444 Lankershim Blvd #101 NoHo Btwn Riverside Dr & Moorpark St
or, the yummy - Skaf's Grill 6008 Laurel Canyon Blvd NoHo At Oxnard St 818-985-5701
How about Ca De Sole on Cahuenga? They have a nice outdoor patio. Nice for a good lunch, book and glass of wine
I go to the Outtake Bistro a lot when I'm dining solo in that area. Good food, nice service, not too loud and crazy. It's a terrific spot.
Kindof a random pick- but what about Daichan (Japanese Soul Food)? Fun decor, great, reliably good food.
Actually, Kung Pao Bistro in Studio City for seafood items, soups, and tofu or veggie items is pretty low key at lunch time, definitely affordably priced, and the food is very good. Avoid the appetizers, however.
While this post is late for your need, the patio over the weekend should be very nice with warm weather due.
So glad to hear you loved Skaf's - it rocks.
Next time, for a healthy, mellow vibe with super yummy food try Healthy CA. It is tucked away in obscurity on Lankershim, across the street from the Sexton drum store, south of the Roger Dunn golfapalooza and just north of the tire place. They are open only for lunch and the food is delicious.
