Six meals, ~$200 a day for two people

Hey all, was wondering if people could comment on the choices we're looking at thus far. We have a car and will be staying at the Loews Hollywood Hotel, so traveling is not a problem for us. We are looking for good Italian, New American, Mexican (good tacos, burritos maybe?), a hopefully cheap sushi lunch special, burgers, cheap breakfast spots for a pastry/dought/whatever and coffee, and Asian food, perhaps Szechuan, but we are open to all of the major ones (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, etc.). We will not be drinking wine anywhere to cut costs and will also not be ordering meat entrees if it keeps us within our budget. Besides, the pasta looks great at a few of these anyway.

Osteria Mozza
The Tasting Kitchen

two of these will make up our two most expensive meals of the two days provided it fits within our budget. I'm a little worried about Italian overload, so if someone has other suggestions for dinner, I'd love to hear them. I figure if we do not eat meat entrees at these, we will be in the clear.

Lunch spots:

Baco Mercat
Golden State
Salt's Cure
Church and State
La Casita Mexicana
Tacos Clarita

We're lacking a bit on the cheaper end of things here besides the burger and Mexican spots. Maybe something from one of the cheaper Asian spots? We like dumplings, Szechuan food, etc. Is there a good sushi spot for $40 a person maybe? We are from CT and most of the sushi here is horrendous, so we're probably fairly easy to please here. Food trucks would also be something we'd like to explore.

No ideas yet :(

apologies for the long-winded post!
