My mind is blank even after living and eating here for almost 3 years now but I need a restaurant for lunch for some 30-somethings visiting from San Francisco tomorrow. Somewhere open for lunch that's cool, fun, hip and chow-worthy. Jinky's is out, same for Cheesecake Factory, Islands, Tony Romas etc. Not sure this is a sushi crowd either, so that eliminates most of Studio City. Prefer Sherman Oaks, Studio City, North Hollywood or Encino. Somewhere like Max would be great but they aren't open for weekend lunch. What am I not thinking of?
