Lunch near LAX on Saturday
Hi - we arrive at LAX at 12:30 in the afternoon and we'll be starving (coming from BOS)...have to drive to Santa Barbara but definitely want to have lunch before we get there. Casual, good food is what we are looking for...any suggestions?
my go-to place if I were in your situation, would be Cafe del Rey in the marina.
in addition to the better-than-solid food, and the good wine-by-the glass list, they have an attended dedicated parking lot.
if you want something more casual than white tablecloth dining, eat in the bar area and order off the bar menu.
if all my luggage was sitting in my car, the last place i'd be interested in parking would be one of the public unattended lots in venice. . . . .
Well, if you are going to be in the Marina or Venice you should check out the French Toasts at 26 Beach Restaurant. They also do great salads and award winning hamburgers! They do not have the wine list of Cafe Del Rey but some great food. Enjoy your meal!
3100 Washington Blvd., Venice, CA 90292
Cafe Del Rey
4451 Admiralty Way, Marina Del Rey, CA 90292
at 26 beach, even if there was valet parking, the parking attendants are not stationed within view of the lot nor necessarily within view of the places they park the cars on the street when the lot is full.
at cafe del rey, the attendants are stationed IN the lot which is in front of the restaurant. when i parked my luggage-filled car there the last time, the attendant parked the car directly in front of his station so that he could have his eyes on the car the whole time i was eating.
