Hi Everybody,

I already know about Sushi Gen's generous lunch special.

Just wondering if anyone knows of any other great WEEKDAY DOWNTOWN LUNCH SPECIALS (in downtown area, South Park or Little Tokyo).

Other places I'm considering: Drago Centro, The Wood Spoon, and what about Arashi Sushi? Anyone been there for lunch?

Would love to discover new places for lunch options. Many thanks!!!

  1. Cafe Pinot's $20 two-course spa menu is an excellent value.

      Oh, thanks, sushigirlie!

      We ended up heading to Arashi Sushi in Southpark. Really OUTSTANDING quality of sushi. Their lunch special is only $10.95 to $11.95. Highly recommended!

    2. Check out this LA Times article about downtown lunch spots:

      I find the taco place in Grand Central Market to be very good...and cheap.

        Cool article, Darin. I'm so curious to try the Armenian place!

      2. Topping this thread to see if there are any recently opened places in downtown-LA that have great Lunch Specials... been meaning to try Horse Thief BBQ...
