Lunch Spot (casual) from LAX to the Getty?
I'm wondering if anyone has good casual lunch suggestions anywhere near enough to the route between LAX and the Getty Center. (I don't mind going a bit off the trail) Santa Monica/Culver City is fine as well!
Was thinking of Father's Office, but it doesn't open until later on weekdays.
I'm open to any type of cuisine, just not too expensive or pretentious this round, and relatively quick.
Thanks for any ideas!
I’ll suggest a couple of my all-time favorites:
Hop off the 405 North at Culver Blvd and head over to:
Le Saint Amour
9725 Culver Blvd
Culver City, CA 90232
World-class brasserie and charcuterie brought to Culver City by the former owners of Downtown LA’s Angelique. And yes, they brought the andouille l’ancienne (I love it, but it’s not for everybody) with them and added such delights as scrumptious quenelles (highly recommended), delicious sweetbreads and a terrific duck leg confit. I feel re-aligned after every meal.
Or, you can take the 405 North to the 90 West, exit at Centinela North and stop by:
4532 S. Centinela Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90066
Incredible Sinaloan/Nyarit style seafood creations by Sergio Penuelos - already a legend. All seafood is sourced fresh from Mazatlan and has that unique Gulf taste that cannot be duplicated. The pescado zarandeado, a specially prepared whole grilled fish, is extraordinary as are his aguachiles. Try one of the delicious marlin tacos for a unique and tasty treat. Very casual.
Maybe Monte Alban for Oaxacan food? Off at SM Blvd. and then about 1 mile west to the address.
