We're having a small department Christmas lunch for 10, and I was looking for suggestion for a nice lunch spot. We're located close to Western and 190th in Torrance (where all the Toyota buildings are) which is a small culinary wasteland. We will can go as far as the western edge of Torrance, Gardena, and generally that area.
Past places that we've gone are Depot (good), Aioli (meh), and Paradise Cafe (double meh). I love to eat anything, but most in my group aren't too adventureous. I think the most exotic they will go is The Loft (but that has been suffering lately). I have been to Gyu-Kaku, but I think that's still iffy for this group.
