      You should do a search on this board. You will find out Porto's is a bakery, and there's not much that's all that chow worthy in that area. If you branch out a bit east, west or south, many more options open up for you.

        Portos has great sandwiches and salads aside form the terrific bakery goods. It is absolutely worth visiting and a great choice, especially if you are in the area.

            Also, I really liked Novo Cafe for casual Italiano.

                  is the pizza there sorta new york/italian american/takeout stylee, or some sort of neopolitan variant?

                  never will understand kevin's affection for bea beas, although bistro provence is solid.

            If you want to forget the chow worthiness factor, and instead have a bite of nostalgia, there is a Bob's Big Boy, complete with carhops, etc.
            On Riverside Drive about 4 or so blocks from WB.

              And at Bob's ask for the Beatles booth.

                Novo café is easiest if you're at WB, it's a block up behind the WB green glass building.

                My choice would be Malbec for the salmon salad....www.malbeccuisine.com

                  Thank you for your ideas!! We ended up at The Smokehouse right around the corner from The WB studios for lunch. Food was really good and service was great. I will definitely be trying Portos for desert sometime soon.
