goodbye goodbye goodbye!!!! dining around west la

Okay, our family is finally moving out of LA to the great Northwest, an adventure only about 12 years in the planning. Aside from all the tasty food in SGV that we won't have easy access to, we are most excited.

My workplace wants to give me the standard last meal/office send-off. Now, given my druthers, I'd be out to SGV in a heartbeat to scarf down dimsum or sichuan or something similar but everyone in the office is pretty jammed up so that thinIk I'd lose half the party before we crossed La Cienega. I suspect my best bet is something involving take-out.

Our office is in Westwood. Delivery or short drive preferred. The last office bridal shower recepiant choose Sunnin and it was very well received. I was thinking of maybe La Serenta on Pico or Zankou Chicken. I also considered "Indias Oven" on Westwood south of Santa Monica but haven't actually checked out the new location.

Any thoughts?

    1. I'd shoot for something that's maybe not done as well in the Northwest. Chinese is a great option but of course SGV's too far. How about mexican, persian, or sushi?

      1. How many people are going to be going? If it's not too many, I'd vote for Orris -- get sent off in style!

        As an aside, there's only ONE Korean place I've found in the Seattle area (near Ballard) that compares with the stuff we've got in spades here in KTown. Get your banchan fix while you can.

          Can you remember the name of the place in Seattle? This info may very well be needed somewhere down the line.

          1. re: nakni

            Please, if you want to discuss Korean in Seattle, start a thread on the Pacific NW Board so all your future neighbours can benefit. You can post a heads up here letting SauceSupreme know where to find the appropriate thread.

              I don't want to discuss Korean in Seattle but I wish people would not mention a great place in City X without being more specific. Its annoying and at least as bad as cross talk.

              I 've posted Nakni's inquiry to Sauce Supreme on the Seattle board....


              Oh Sauce Supreme: come out come out whereever you are!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          1. Skip Clementine for a group lunch. I love it myself, but the group lunch that they did for us last spring, wasn't great nor well received. The sandwiches were messy and their food arrangements weren't attractive.

            1. I second Delphi Greek - haven't been in a long time because we moved out of that area but we always had great food and service there at dinner.

              the food, imho is better than sunin
              the prices are fine (they offer an extremely well-priced lunch menu during the week)
              and they can accomodate a large party in the restaurant, unlike sunin.

                yay for shamshiri.

                i agree with "what can't be done in the NW," but Apple Pan is an LA institution.
