i need lunch ideas. anywhere, really. here's the deal:
i'm taking a first-timer to LA to lunch. i'm recruiting him, will be driving out from Burbank, and am open to traveling as far as the westside. here's why i'm dedicating a whole post to this.
1) i know plenty of great dinner spots, but don't get out much for lunch. some places vary from their dinner menus? hence... what are some good lunch spots?
2) i don't know much about this newcomer, and he's been very accommodating everytime i probe about his preferences. i have no idea what types of food i should lean towards... but i do know it should probably be a sit-down. i would much rather prefer to sneak over to langers... but that would be selfish of me..hehe... :(
3) ideally we eat in an area that will be convenient to, if not right in, a 'happenin' area of town. (aka: not burbank) to give him a good idea of what los angeles is all about...
a lot weighs on my lunch choice! need to convince him that LA is in fact, really cool, and that he should move here for work! he's a small-town boy so he did mention that he's not accustomed to seafood, but if you guys know a mind-blowing seafood restaurant for lunch, i'd love to convert him!
pleeeease... throw some names out here! my poor brain is stuck.
