Lunchtime in L.A.

Let’s face it. You can only brown bag leftovers or do a Chipotle burrito bowl so many times! Luckily, L.A. has some great lunch options and we haven’t even gotten to dineLA yet!

Wally's Grain Salad

Wally’s Beverly Hills: If you’re near the Golden Triangle, stop by Canon any day of the week for Chef David Feau’s Grain Salad prepared with Satsuki rice, buckwheat, kuri, & butternut squash, pomegranate seeds, shaved scallion, and parsley, tossed in a sherry-honey vinaigrette. Who says you can’t be virtuous? Pair with a glass of wine from the extensive list or if you’re like us, a glass of  champagne!
