Need recs for a nice lunch venue for a group (NOT the "Ladies Who Lunch" type). Westside, Mid-Wilshire, Melrose ideal. Good food, reasonable prices, artsy atmosphere all the better. This will be in mid-October .....

    Pane & Vino has a really nice patio, and though I haven't been in a while....I've always found their food to be pretty good. I've seen groups of your size there.
    Also...La Buca got a good review from the L A Times recently.

          "20 years after branching out from Claudio Marchesan and Pietro Bernardi's Montecito trattoria of the same name, Pane e Vino has closed in Beverly Hills. "

            So sad about Pane & Vino. That patio was stunning. Decided on Luna Park for my luncheon, they are most accommodating in terms of menu planning, etc. Thanks to all!!

                Thanks, Emme. It was incredibly romantic. The world needs to preserve romantic, this is a loss.

              Yea, I just read that, too. That is sad. I had many a lovely meal on that patio. I wonder who will take the space. It's a great location.

            how 'bout Luna Park?
            i would have loved to have been able to recommend Angeli caffe, but i believe that they are not open for lunch on Saturdays/

              Amici Brentwood is a great venue for this type of event.
