Top Client Luncheon - Downtown - 2/2

Hello My Fellow CH'ers!

Taking my top customers to a post-holiday luncheon on Monday 2/1. There will be 10-12 of us and hoping to stay in the downtown area. Any suggestions? My clients are hip to the scene and don't necessarily need the fallback steak/martini lunch.

Thank you!

  1. Depending on what you want to spend, and how their tastes run, you might consider Water Grill, Patina at the Disney, Zucca, or possibly (you'd have to check first) reserving the entire sushi bar at Takumi (NOT TakAmi). . . .

    1. Try to find a member and/or see if you can reserve one of the private dining rooms at The City Club on Bunker Hill. Best views in LA (54th floor of the Wells Fargo building). Really good food and excellent service levels.

      If you can't do this, then I would definitely do the Water Grill. Both are appropriate for "top level" clients.

      1. I have been to the Water Gril multiple times and I do love it, but looking for something new to experience. Zucca looks amazing! Thank you.

            I've been to Zucca 5-6 times for lunch and was never impressed. Maybe their dinner is better. For lunch, I'd pick Roy's, just across the street, over Zucca. And I'd pick Nick & Stef's over Roy's.

          2. I highly recommend Drago Centro - it sound like exactly what you're after.

            1. Nick & Stef's has some nice private rooms that would accommodate a party that size, and while the food won't change your life or anything, it's pretty dependable. Also agree with woojink -- the City Club has very good food and heartbreaking views, if you can find a member to get you in.
