need a good place for lunch in burbank- money is no issue- for a very nice, if not lavish, "good luck" lunch...

already been to french 74, Mo's and the chains... please help with other suggestions?

  1. If by chains you may have overlooked Morton's Steakhouse on West Olive then give it a try. Lunch is only Monday through Friday. They have a great cheeseburger. Order it with mushrooms.

      you're right, i did forget morton's... how could i?!?!

    2. Not lavish but nice, and the food is terrific..........Prosecco in Toluca Lake, almost next door to Trader Joes.

        This is actually a good choice that I wouldn't have thought of, but Prosecco was really good the last time I went...

        Time to go back, I guess...

      2. Drive 12 minutes to sushi row on Ventura blvd and there are several options like Asanebo, Nozawa, Katsu Ya, Tama, etc.....

        1. Bistro Provence, a hidden gem in a supermarket mall on Pass just north of the 134, is IMHO the best French food east of the 405.

            And more to the point, what French spot is west of the 405 in the valley? La Frite in Woodland Hills? L'Affair in San Fernando?

              1. re: SauceSupreme

                Nope, L'Affair is east of the 405

                1. re: SauceSupreme

                  Oh, shucks. I meant, east of the 170. And west of the 5, and north of the 134 ...

                  Forget it, it's a good French place, okay? ;P

              2. these are some great suggestions!!! i am not familiar with the area so please keep them coming..

                and as i think more about it, i realize that even a short drive would complicate things since there will be a few cars of people caravaning... immediate burbank area is going to have to be the radius :(
