wilshire & doheny restaurant for lunch
Just so happens I had lunch at Kate Mantinili's yesterday. I was solo, sat at the counter and ordered a tri-colori salad with added grilled chicken. The greens were delicious and very fresh; grilled chicken was also lovely. Trust me, it was not cheap; about $19.00 for that lovely salad with added chicken.. Sure was good and I'm not complaining. Also came with delicious sourdough bread and sweet butter.
Don't know the fanciness level you're looking for, so I'll throw out a few options...
Had a decent lunch at Meet Me Cafe acouple of weeks back.
Lazy Daisy is on Wilshire near Almont.
Spago on Canon by Wilshire
Porterhouse Bistro on Wilshire
Xi'an at Canon and Brighton (lots of meetings tend to go on here at lunchtime)
Hope something helps... FWIW, lots of industry meetings at lunch at Kate Mantelini's.
