Alcazar Express Westwood is now Lina Express?
Ah, that space is cursed. Walked past and saw a sign "Lunch Special $9.95, Under New Management".
Alcazar had good food but the service was too unpredictable/slow, not surprised. Anyone to Lina please post!

Ahhh, you just solved a recent mystery for me!! My husband used to work in that area, and used to lunch there often. We had a charge on our debit account that said "Lina Express", and I didn't recognize it. He told me it was a lunch, so at least it wasn't fraud. Don't know if it was up to par with Alcazar, though, but thanks! Unfortunately my DH doesn't work in that 'hood anymore, so I can't comment on it.
Had lunch there last week. If I understood correctly, same kitchen staff, same host, but a new investor. I think they have reordered the menu and cut back on what they will serve at lunchtime, but I had been away for a while, so I am not completely sure. Our lunch was very good, and served quickly--but we didn't veer off the lunch menu so don't have much of an impression of scope. Certainly it is still a bright light in the immediate neighborhood of Wilshire/Westwood.
