Westsider here who rarely ventures downtown except for events at Staples Center or jury duty so I’m woefully ignorant about all the places that have sprung up in the last few years. However I’ll be at a seminar in the area this Saturday morning and a friend and I want to have a leisurely lunch afterwards - some place where we can have a glass of wine and a nice meal and chat for a while. Fairly open food wise, except that she doesn’t eat red meat and I don’t eat fish/seafood so a broader menu is good. I’m assuming a lot of places will have a brunch menu, but we’d at least like a good number of non-breakfasty options. Suggestions from another friend include Terroni and Le Petit Paris. Other ideas?
One more wrinkle - I’d really love it if there was a bar with a tv showing college football (Michigan - Michigan state at 12:30) but that may be too much to ask. Thanks!
