Restaurants to take my agents near Wilshire/Fairfax

Hey everyone,
looking for a nice yet affordable place to take my Agents to dinner this week. One of my agents eats mostly vegetarian (though not completely), the other is not at all and has a little more expensive tastes. Looking for a place that we can carry on a conversation and have a leisurely meal. Please name your favorites. Thanks for the help.

  1. Plan Check is near by.

    1. The Larder on Burton Way (near La Cienega) is not far and they have a very good Dine La Promotion going on.

      1. Interesting question: "Agents" is a strange word around these chowish quarters and even stranger to fashion a meal around.
        Are we talking Secret Agents , Cleaning Agents, Infectious Agents or Hollywood Agents?
        For the moment, let's say Hollywood Agents (and lets leave aside the obvious question of why on earth would you be taking your agents out, instead of the other way 'round) and let's say the middle of town.
        Do you have budget in mind? It's not their expense account and you have said you want affordable, but to please one omnivore with expensive tastes, and a mostly vegovore...
        My Spidey Sense says
        Fig and Olive (I'm not a fan but some folks are)

        Tough to help with this one...

            OP "One of my agents eats mostly vegetarian" ...what would you order at Father's Office?

            1. re: wienermobile

              How about Reagan's favorite vegetable -- ketchup?

              ...Oh, wait, it's Father's Office we are talking about...

            I was also wondering if we were talking about talent agents or real estate agents (both of whom should be taking the client out to dinner, as you said). Either way I concur on AOC. or maybe Republique?

            1. re: Ciao Bob

              funny query. i'm hoping it's a secret agent.....

                  Thanks DWEO, but clearly not as funny as FranklinJefferson...the newborn baby crack has me howling...

                2. re: Ciao Bob

                  AOC is a good choice. Dont like Fig and Olive horrible service.

                3. OSTERIA MOZZA…something for everyone.

                  1. Do their occupations have anything to do with your requirements or do you just want to put it out there that you have representation?

                    P.S. I love how you've used title case for "Agents."
