Lawry’s Carvery

I was at a career fair at the downtown Convention Center, and the lunch hour came and went while I was waiting in line for a resume review. I needed something to eat other than the giveaway mints and candy bar miniatures, and the food court at the Convention Center was closed. I wandered out to Figueroa, and the closest cluster of options was at the LA Live complex. I assumed there would only be bad, overpriced food there, but Lawry’s Carvery proved me wrong.

You walk in and see the carving station straight ahead, and order and pay at stations to the right. I went with the Roast Beef Bleu sandwich: bleu cheese spread, tomatoes, arugula and crispy onions, with medium-rare roast beef on a baguette, sided with homemade potato chips with a sprinkling of pepper. YUMM and quick to boot!

Keep them in mind next time you’re at the Staples Center. Why pay $5 for a warmed-over hot dog when you can have a freshly-carved sandwich and chips for $9?

And, if you’re wondering about my employment status, I’m still looking. However, I did get a great lead at the career fair. I’ll keep you posted!
