Lunch or dinner near Huntington Library & Deer Park Auto Museum & Winery

pgsmama Jul 20, 2009 10:11 AM

We're planning to spend a day at the Huntington Library in San Marino. Any suggestions for lunch or dinner? Somewhere not too expensive that would suit one vegetarian & two adventurous eaters?

Also, what about in the vicinity of the Deer Park Auto Museum & Winery?

    Huntington is close to Babita... lots of mention on board if you need more.

        Pie 'n Burger is nearby. Not sure how it would suit a vegetarian -- a couple of slices of their wonderful peach pie, maybe?

          If you want to stay on the grounds for lunch, make reservations at the Huntington's tea room - don't eat in the cafeteria, though.

          That said, I'd vote for Julienne.

            i like both those suggestions, and i'd throw in a few more for different types of food:

            yoshida (not sure if they're open for lunch)
            saladang/saladang song
            maison akira (not sure about they're lunch situation either)

              Third vote for Julienne - it's just the place to put you in the mood for the Huntington. I love the Huntington in almost every way, but I visit the food areas only for thirst-quenching, and then only if my companions insist.

              Julienne's is a pretty solid (and popular) place for brunch and it's pretty close to the Huntington Library.

                  We had lunch at Din Tai Fung when we went to the Huntington.

                    I don't think that Deer Park Winery is still open. Don't know what happened to them, but the gate has been closed full time for a long time and the website doesn't work.

                    As far as the Huntington Library is concerned, you should search the Los Angeles board http://chowhound.chow.com/boards/2.
