Lunch for one near Pershing Square

I'm going to be on foot downtown this Friday, visiting from the Pacific Northwest. I'll be starting from 6th and Broadway - what's not to be missed?

Edit: am I correct in reading Kogi's schedule that they'll have a truck at Grand Hope park on that day? I've never tried them.

    I like MENDOCINO FARMS a lot; it has two locations downtown (5th & Flower and 3rd & Grand/Watercourt) serving gourmet famers market inspired sandwiches, salads & soups.

    Monday - Friday Hours 11am - 3pm

    444 S. Flower St. Los Angeles, CA 90071

      The Mendocino Farms on Flower Street is open for dinner now (until 7 p.m.?).

    2. From the North East corner of Pershing Square you can get an the Red Line Subway and go north to China Town or Olvera Street and Phillippe's or go west and get a great pastrami sandwich at Langers.

      1. If you don't do Kogi, walk a couple blocks to Bottega Louie

        1. Closest, if that matters, might be Sultan (no atmosphere but delicious Middle Eastern food, including a really good roast chicken). This link (and the one referenced therein) might help provide some additional selections:

          1. I second the suggestions of Mendocino Farms and Bottega Louie.
