Good Hollywood Bowl baskets

  • j

Any suggestions for getting good baskets of food for the Hollywood Bowl? Studio City/North Hollywood/Toluca Lake/Beverly Center areas would be easiest.

  1. This is different from the normal Hollywood Bowl fare.

    I just got got an email from the folks at Mako Restaurant in Beverly Hills. They have a bento box picnic basket to go. 3 tiers of food for two people: one tier of appetizers, one tier of entrees and one tier of desserts. you get to keep the bento box (the presentation in the picture looks really nice) after the event. Worth a call. I think there is a blurb on their website.

      1. re: Diana

        I would like to second this recommendation (thanks to Diana). I have taken their lunch picnic basket for 2 twice to the Bowl and it is very good value - the first was the croissant sandwich with black forest ham and swiss cheese, and this week we had the grilled shrimp club sandwich. These are beautifully packaged with two sides (Waldorf salad and a pesto pasta salad), two small dessert items and ranged in price from $14.99 to $18.99. We have not tried their picnic meals which are more expensive. The gourmet lunch bags are perfect sizing for us before the concerts.

      2. not in your neighborhood, but i noticed that clementine is doing picnic baskets for the bowl now and they look so good!

          1. VERT's food for the bowl is about as good as you can get. A great variety and you get A TON of food as well. I used to go to a number of different places each summer, but now, if I order food and don't bring my own, I simply go to VERT. Give them a try (at Hollywood and Highland)
