The Carving Board

Get ready to sink your teeth into a piled-high-with-toppings sandwich served on a wooden carving board. This restaurant is one of the area’s finest for lunch. You can choose a Hot or Cold variety. Some favorites include the Big Kahuna complete with Ahi tuna, seared rare cucumbers, soy-marinated wakame seaweed, Roma tomatoes, sweet red onion, and served on a warmed brioche bun, The Bentley with its chunks of filet mignon, grilled onion, blue cheese crumbles, fresh spinach, and bacon mayo served on a ciabatta roll, and the Chicken Salad Club with walnuts, onions, butter lettuce, Roma tomatoes, dried cranberries, and bacon served on a warm brioche bun. There are also grilled cheese sandwiches and burgers along with vegetarian options.

Over/Under Public House

The atmosphere is as important as the lunch menu at this popular eatery. Over/Under Public House specializes in burgers. Made from Grass-Fed Wagyu, beef burgers can also be substituted with chicken and veggie patties. A signature burger for the establishment is the Over/Under Burger which is piled high with pastrami, caramelized onions, bacon, America cheese, spring mix, and sriracha aioli. Other items of interest are the Avocado Toast (after all, it’s California) complete with optional egg, grilled chicken, grilled shrimp or bacon, S.T.S. sandwich with gouda cheese, sliced green apples, and jalapeno aioli, and wings with over ten different flavors to choose from when you order.

The New Deal

The New Deal is the ‘Real Deal’ for meat-eaters and plant-based diners alike. There is an excellent selection of vegetarian and vegan options as well as a wide range of hearty burgers, sandwiches, and entrees such as Meatloaf and a Beef Short Rib. The wine list is rather extensive, too, if you want to enjoy an adult beverage before resuming your sightseeing tour in the city. Lemon Sorbet with a glass of Moscato is refreshing considering how relentless the California sun can be most days of the year.
