LA/ Wilshire area lunch recommendation

Taking a trip to La Brea Tar Pits this Saturday. Looking to have nice lunch with my wife and 24 year old son after the Tar Pits visit. What's good nearby? Comfortable outdoor seating would be nice but not a deal breaker.

theres probably too many to list. be a little more specific. for instance, what type of food would you prefer?

probably the best i have had from a restaurant. its hard to come by authentic argentine food you can buy, here in la/oc. my dads side of the family is from argentina, so i grew up eating it and became accustomed to REAL argentinian foods/cooking. however, i will grub on empanadas place any chance i can.

I usually hit Andre's when I'm in that area.

The shrimp sauce is pretty damn good!

Just yelp something. Tons of good choices and the yelp reviews are pretty reliable.

glenn, this one is the farmer's market on 3rd and fairfax (next to the grove). just 2-3 blocks north of wilshire.

relax atmosphere. so much variety that you would want to eat lunch and dinner there. we normally go to pampas - brazilian food.

reasonable price....yelp 4 stars @ 624 customers.
