Lunch is one of our favorite meals of the day. It’s a time to bond with friends, close a deal with your perfected sales pitch or sit with coworkers and discuss the finishing touches of a team project. This week at Reserve, we've spent our lunches chatting about our newest city, Philadelphia! Here are some Reserve LA restaurants to help inspire your next lunch destination.
Redbird, which took over the old 1933-built rectory inside the Vibiana Cathedral, is a downtown masterpiece serving outstanding New American dishes. The restaurant is the latest from renowned chef Neal Fraser and offers a relaxed lounge space filled with vintage and repurposed furniture, tiles and woodwork reminiscent of the late 1800s, an astonishing wine cellar and a near 360-degree marble bar. We recommend the prime burger, which Lesley Balla of Zagat called “a decadent specimen.”
Eveleigh is a neighborhood restaurant and bar where friends and family can gather over a local, farm-to-table menu of rustic, old-world inspired dishes. Just like their sister restaurant, Goldie’s, Eveleigh recently introduced lunch service.
Inside the LA Hotel Downtown, this award-winning restaurant led by Executive Chef Kevin Harry is perfect for a quick lunch meeting, with a variety of classic comfort food and go-to American dishes. The marble-floored space features dim lighting and stylish art, just some of the chic details also reflected in its beautifully presented food and drinks.
Drago Centro delivers innovative twists on classic Italian dishes. The stunning 9,500 square foot restaurant boasts an open kitchen, a private dining room and a demonstration kitchen housed in what was once the vault of City National Bank. The restaurant’s lunch and dinner menus feature a wide range of options, from house-made pastas to exotic wild game, savory steaks to delectable desserts.
Lucques is an award-winning West Hollywood restaurant by Chef/Owner Suzanne Goin, serving market-driven California cuisine with French and Mediterranean influences. Set in the refined, rustic carriage house of the original Harold Lloyd estate, the warm and intimate brick-walled restaurant features exposed wood beams and plush banquettes. An ivy-covered patio sits just outside, perfect for a quick bite in the sun.
So, take a break and request a reservation at one of Reserve's restaurants, and lunch like you mean it.
