Lunch place by Century City

Hi All,

I'll be in LA this weekend for a wedding and looking for a good place to eat Sunday brunch/lunch either close to our hotel or LAX. We're staying in Century City on Avenue of the Stars. Can you suggest some "must-eat" place near us? We love all types of food and price isn't a big deal.

    Try Bread Bar and Clementine for Lunch. La Cachette for dinner. in Century City.

    Near by: Apple Pan

    You are also not too far from westwood, culver city, beverly hills for good eats

      Close to LAX, for good comfort food, try Pann's. [If you're intent on trying In'n'Out, it's close to LAX too].

      A good place for dinner would be Upstairs2.

      If you are interested in ethnic, try Shamshiri for Persian.

      If you'll head over to Westwood, you can get brunch/lunch at Napa Valley Grille or the Gardens on Glendon.

        John O Groat's is a great casual diner with typical diner fare done well, but it can get crowded during lunch hours, so go either early or late. It's maybe 3 minutes from your hotel. Just take Ave of the Stars south, make a right onto Pico, and it'll be a little ways down on your left.

        I also second the Apple Pan if you're in a burger & especially fries mood (and apparently tuna sandwiches there are great so I've heard). It's been in LA for a long time, everyone sits at the long horseshoe counter, and the guys working there wear the little folded white hats like from the 50s. They open at 11am.
