Nuart Theatre - Sawtelle - casual, cheap-ish, open for lunch


Title pretty much says it all...
going to the Nuart Theatre in the Sawtelle district, and looking for a casual, not too expensive place that is open for lunch and thereafter.

One or 1.5 mile radius (walking distance for us) preferred.

      100% agree with Plan Checkā€¦ 5 minute walk right around the corner...

    2. Love Flores on Sawtelle - great for lunch and dinner

      1. Zankou Chicken on Sepulveda . Garlic sauce and walkable.

        1. Here are 3 nearby diners with decent and very reasonably priced food.

          Cafe 50s in WLA on Santa Monica Blvd.

          Teddy's Cafe on Pico at Bundy

          Rae's, also on Pico but about a mile west.

            I think Rae's is more like 2.5 miles from the Nuart.

              Teddy's might be outside the radius.

              1. re: Sam D.

                But are any of them 'good' food? I've read some bad reviews here of at least Rae's & Teddy's......

                  I kind of dislike both.

                  But Teddy's is seriously dirt cheap. Think eggs pancakes and potatoes for 4 bucks in a sit down cafe.

              2. Endless choices on Sawtelle, Plan Check at the top of the list.

                  Or Kiriko for great sush just a few blocks away.

                  1. re: kevin

                    Bar Hayama on Sawtelle is the perfect place to go, after the movie. Sit by the fire.

                      It may not fit into "not too expensive" category though.
