Casual quiet lunch place near Cedar Sinai?

My husband and some associates are flying to a meeting at Cedar Sinai, and they'd like lunch at a place where they can discuss their game plan before the meeting. Can LA Chowhounds suggest a place close by that isn't too noisy, but isn't formal, either? (Price and ethnicity not important factors.) TIA!

    I haven't been for lunch so can't comment on the noise level. But it's walking distance from Cedars, and I like the food alot at Chaya Brasserie. French cuisine as done by Japanese chefs. The black cod dishes are what I get.

      Lucques is lovely for lunch (Tues. - Sat.), quiet enough to talk and, while close to Cedars, is far enough away that it is less likely someone from Cedars would be there to inadvertently overhear the "game plan" if that is a concern. Culina in the Four Seasons and the Palm (quiet tables can be found at lunchtime) are other good options.

        Madeo - Italian - I believe they serve lunch, no website, should be a quite close private lunch:

          Madeo is also my choice.

          There are a number of places right across 3rd Street from Cedars; I'd just look for one that looked appealing and not too crowded. Of course there's a cafeteria in the hospital (east office wing; third floor) that's...not very fancy, but right there.

            The Capital Grille is across the street (Beverly Center, street level). Valet parking, private rooms with flat screen TVs, upstairs patio. Very old-school steak house. Open for lunch & dinner. Big portions. Their energy won't flag during their pitch to CSMC. (Hope your husband isn't a surveyor.)

              Without a doubt, Chaya Brasserie.
