I'm in town on business and was hoping to get some recommendations for lunch near Wilshire and Hauser (where I am for a mtg) or somewhere in West Hollywood. Any cuisine and price point is appreciated.

    Will you have a car? If so then I recommend Parks Korean BBQ (about 3.5 miles from your location).

    http://www.parksbbq.com/

    Or, if you would like to try out some of the Oaxacan food available in that area (great black mole over a tamal) then: http://www.guelaguetzarestaurante.com/ which is about the same distance to the Olympic Blvd. location (which has much better parking than the 8th St location - which is closer to your starting point).

      assuming you have a car...? it really depends how far you're willing to travel, and what you feel like eating!

      initial thoughts within about 1/2 mile:

      Umami Burger
      Luna Park

        if you have a car:
        Angeli on Melrose; it's not very crowded over lunch and the food is delish.
        Angelini on Beverly
        on Third is Izakaya Katsu-ya. a fun business lunch place. you may need to call ahead for a reservation.

          For inexpensive tacos and salsas, there also is Chulada Grill at San Vicente and Hauser. I just go for the tacos and the pico de gallo, but they also have Oaxacan food. Chulada Grill also delivers: http://www.chuladagrill.com/

          I also second Guelaguetza. Get the chicken tamales with mole negro.

          At Olympic and Fairfax are a collection of Ethiopian restaurants. Messob is my favorite.
