New! Best! Amazing in the SFV...

Hello Chowhounds!
I am a coordinator for a tv show in Studio City and it is my job to make sure the writers are happy every single day. One of my jobs is to coordinate lunch and dinner for a staff of 12-15 people daily. I am hoping you all could give me some suggestions of great NEW, BEST, and AMAZING places within a 5 mile radius of Studio City that I could treat my writers too. THEY LOVE it when I give them a menu for a place they've never been.

Usually we try not to spend more than $15 per person per meal and the place should be able to accomodate take out orders for 12-15 people.

Thank you!!!!!

      2. I asked my nephew who works on the lot at CBS-Radford. His show orders many times from Art's Deli in Studio City. He told me that they love the food and that Art's does food for other shows as well.

        1. Katsu-ya on Ventura at Colfax is my favorite sushi place in LA. Caioti on Tujunga between Moorpark and Riverside has great pizza. Poquito Mas on Cahuenga just past Lankershim has wonderful Mexican.

          1. I would also suggest Aroma Cafe on Tujunga for good sandwiches and desserts. You may also want to check out Outtake Cafe on Ventura.

            1. Ohana BBQ at 11269 Ventura Blvd., Studio City (818)-508-3192 has great Hawaiian and Korean dishes and for the size group you mention will deliver (be sure to ask for extra kim chee - no one will be able to talk to their friends for a couple of days because it is liberally laced with garlic and is quite spicy). Second choice would be Chiangsan for really good Thai food and they also deliver within a three mile radius which I believe works for you. They are at 5145 Colfax, No. Hollywood (Colfax at Magnolia). (818)760-1283. Third choice would be Village Gourmet on Tujunga near Moorpark. Could put a great platter of assorted sandwiches together for you. Love their imported soppressata, genoa and italian salami. Their Proscuitto sandwich is excellent. 4357 Tujunga (818)-487-3807. Mangia!!!!
