Taking daughter to California Science Center to see the Endeavour. Lunch???

Looking for a cool place for lunch near the USC, she is a foodie and would love something fun.

        I might hesitate on Baco for one reason. I don't think it's kid friendly.

          Of course we don't know if Marla has a "chowhound" friendly kid, or not... ;-D>

            I don't see that she mentioned how old her daughter is.

      2. Langer's deli is just 4 miles away for the world's best pastrami. Closed Sundays.

          1. Will you be driving or taking Expo? Expo drops you right there.

            Mercado De La Paloma is a couple of blocks away where you can find wonderful mexican food at Chichen Itza. There is a Lemonade across the street at the USC dining commons though I'm not sure how accessible it is.

              Best option is Mercado La Paloma - 37th & Grand, former home of Mo-chica, and still home to Chichen Itza among many other Latin-flavored operations.
              Within walking distance, although a bit of navigational knowledge of the area might be required.
              But please, please do NOT go this coming Saturday as USC is playing Notre Dame in the Coliseum at 5pm. Expect 90,000+ friends to be in the 'hood!

            2. If you are driving, go to Langers or downtown.
