Jury Duty, Downtown LA, lunch recs?

Hi everyone,

I did a search, but the most recent threads I found on jury duty lunch choices in downtown LA are all from 2007 and 2008. I think this info may be a little outdated. So, let's get the most recent recs from the hounds - where would you go for lunch if you had jury duty in downtown LA? Thanks!

      1. Medicino Farms. Great sandwiches. Just added as a spring special Slow Braised Lamb Sandwich with mint pesto, Drake Family Farm’s goat cheese, balsamic vinegar, pickled red onions, and arugula on toasted ciabatta. Are you hungry yet?

            I third Mendocino Farms. I knew nothing about any restaurants near the courthouse when I was on jury duty. I just let the lines serve as a visual endorsement.

        2. It's not that far of a walk to the grand central market - I hear there are great pupusa's to be had there! Mary Sue Miliken likes Sarita's pupusas - as do folks on yelp --

          In the other direction, you can hit the Spring Street Smokehouse for barbecue, right on the edge of chinatown.

          As I recall when I had jury duty downtown, my jury badge got me a discount at the Walt Disney Hall cafe - and their salads were surprisingly good - pear and pecorino, anyone?

          1. i just served in downtown last week and Mo-Chica was the perfect lunch option

              Yeah Mo-chica if you have a car...

              I have liked that cafe inside the Disney Concert Hall.

              When I worked downtown I used to like Leon's in the LA Mall at the City Hall complex, a traditional stop for jury duty attendees. Plus you need to see the Triforium.

              If you get out early enough and can beat the crowds try Pitfire Pizza.
