Lunch Options Near Melrose/Robertson?

After being spoiled rotten by lunches at Tender Greens, Meltdown, Surfas Cafe, and the new M Cafe in Culver City, I just moved to new offices at Melrose and Robertson.

I desperately need suggestions for chow-ish places to get takeout in this part of West Hollywood. The only restaurants I know are Newsroom and Le Pain Quotidian, the Ivy, and Bossa Nova. I'm hoping to find a great Mexican or sushi place, a decent Thai restaurant? But any kind of cuisine -- I just want to love my lunch! Thanks!

  1. You've got the Melrose Bar & Grill (formerly Doug Arango's). You have a very moderately priced Wolgang Puck restaurant at the PDC but, now as I have re-read your post and that you want takeout, I'm not certain about how this will do for you. However, you can get a perfect pizza at Vito's on La Cienega between Melrose and Santa Monica Blvd.

    1. Try Hedley's on Robertson b/t SM Blvd. and Melrose. It's a very small casual restaurant with the best (and healthy) baked sweet potato fries in West Hollywood. They have daily specials and great burgers and sandwiches. Prices are affordable and service is good. I highly recommend it.

      On the other end, I had a business lunch last week at Comme Ca. The croque madame was incredible and the bill was less than $50 for two of us (but we didn't drink and not have dessert).

      1. Urth makes great lunch food. Wonderful soups. A little farther afield but still doable in an hour is Ammo. Love lunch there.

          I'm a really big fan of lunch at Ammo, too. Good food, good service. Have they moved up the street recently? I thought I saw an awning a bit furthe north.....

        2. Head east on Melrose, and before you get to La Brea there's M Cafe de Chaya:

          1. I love the Creperie on Melrose and Robertson.
