Lunch near Barrington/Wilshire
any advice on a solo lunch in the vicinity of barrington and wilshire?
Dim sum at VIP Harbor Seafood is the best (albeit pretty much the only) dim sum on the Westside, and before I get flamed I must say it's gotten a lot better over the past year. I was very pleasantly surprised the last couple visits and it's not THAT far off from the better dim sum places in the SGV or Chinatown, and even better than some of the other places.
And it's on Wilshitre and Barrington!
I do dim sum alone all the time, about once or twice a week. Better with
others but easily doable with one.
Having said that, Nizam is great. They really do have an outstanding buffet for like $8. But it's not even close to Wilshire and Barrington and the OP seemed to specifically need that area.
Amadine is great for solo diners.

Enzo and Angela is right on Barrington and Wilshire (upstairs in mini-mall). It's great for lunch. Definitely my first choice.
second the rec for literati - it's on the SE corner of wilshire & bundy.
also, a little further up barrington and about one block east on san vicente, there's coral tree cafe on the north side, and barney's burgers on the south side.
in fact, there are many places in brentwood along san vicente, and further up barrington in brentwood village - it just depends how far you can/want to stray from your wilshire/barrington landmark.
