In a week or so -- it could be any day now, but hopefully I'll have a little more time -- I'll be delivering Baby Ritz-Myers at Good Samaritan Hospital, which is vaguely located Downtown. (In L.A. planning geek terms this area just west of the 110 along the Wilshire corridor is technically known as Central City West.)
While I'm glad to avoid the maze and parking difficulty that is Cedars, I'm mildly envious of some food options around there (e.g. Breadbar and Joan's). So, where can we get take-out near Good Sam? Maybe friends and family will be able to help feed us so immediate geography doesn't matter. Still, it doesn't hurt to be prepared.
So far the best prospects include: Pacific Dining Car; pricey, but I'll need cow and apparently this landmark restaurant does a nice set-up for new parents at its neighbor hospital. Plus the hours are in our favor. And Mama's Hot Tamales and Langer's are a quick shot west along Wilshire. Kuishimbo is between my folks' house and the hospital.
Hopefully our stay won't be too long. But you never know what's gonna go down, so please share suggestions.
