Saturday lunch for 15-20 ladies

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 .....

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

        Good suggestion, thanks. Meets all the criteria ....

      2. 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.

          Will check out P&V thanks. FYI, LaBuca doesn't do Saturday lunch.

            Pane and Vino just announced that it is closing its doors. Check www.grubstreet.com

              "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.
