Good Bubank restaurant for work luncheon?

We are having our work holiday lunch in a few weeks and need to find a good restaurant for lunch in Burbank.

    Well, if you're a studio exec you eat at the Smoke House fairly regularly... what's your budget?

      I work with the OP, so... No, we don't work at the studios. We are in northern Burbank. Past places we've gone have included Chadaka Thai, Wokcano, and Gordon Biersch. So that's about our price range. There are about 10-15 of us. We have a few vegetarians, so that's also a consideration. We generally try to stay within Burbank for our holiday lunch.

        Hm... perhaps Third and Olive? Or Granville (but search for reviews -- some dishes need customising before they're 'ready for prime time')? What about the Buchanan Arms? Or Tony's Bella Vista on Magnolia?

      Have you been to the Riverside Cafe on Riverside in Toluca Lake?

        Bistro Providence, you would pretty much have the whole place to yourself. Dino's Pizza, it has some nice salads for you veg co workers.

          ITYM Bistro Provence. Be wary of food that sits too long before it is run to the tables. Otherwise quite good, especially for the Chow Backwater of L.A.
