Business Lunch in Sherman Oaks or Encino

Looking for a high end (non-steakhouse) recommendation for a business lunch in either Sherman Oaks or Encino. Thank you.

  1. Panzanella in Sherman Oaks, Ventura Blvd. around Kester. A Drago operation.

    1. I've always liked Delmonicos in Encino, on Ventura Blvd.. But it has been a couple of years.

        While the Del is ok for ambiance for a lunch meeting, the food has really traveled south.

          Sorry to hear that, Carter. I remember liking a lobster pasta dish. Thanks for the update.

      2. Bistro Garden on Ventura just west of Coldwater is a nice as it gets in those parts. If you are looking less elegant, there are several great sushi choices in the Studio City area. Also, for very good Italian (though not as elegant as Bistro) Il Tiramisu on Ventura and Woodman is outstanding and very suitable for a business lunch.

          But the food, the food!
          oh so who cares.

        2. Just east of Sherman Oaks (Ventura & Coldwater) is Pinot Bistro, which is elegant and always reliable for this type of lunch.

          Pinot Bistro
          12969 Ventura Blvd, Studio City, CA 91604
