last minute trip to the Getty Center -- no time for searching boards

Woke up in San Diego and decided to take a day at the Getty Center. I'm afraid that I will not have time to search through the previous postings for lunch suggestions.

Not looking for a multi-course extravaganza, but also not worried about cost or food style. Just an excellent prandium.

Can you help a brother out?

  1. The cafe at the Getty is the obvious choice. Good food, beaautiful location.

        Some of the best food you'll find at any museum in the Getty Center Restaurant. Entrees run around $20 dollars for lunch They have a nice leg of lamb sandwich. Very good service with great canyon views. Nice patio too.

          A picnic on the museum grounds is also another option.

          Tavern makes pretty good picnic baskets, and is sort of on the way (sort of).

            A picnic on the grounds is a superb idea. Tavern does do a nice basket. I like the one with the turkey ficelle sandwich
