#LunchClubLA has been hanging out on the west side of LA recently. It’s close to the ATAK office and to many of our friends who come to lunch with us. However, we got a lot of requests from our clients and friends up north asking to have #LunchClubLA in a previously uncharted area: the San Fernando Valley. So this week we took #LunchClubLA to The Great Greek in Sherman Oaks, CA, a longtime favorite of CFO and Valley aficionado, David Ephraim.
We were very excited to see so many of our clients and friends at this week’s lunch club! We had Dina Kimmel , CEO of We Rock the Spectrum, Aramis Hernandez from INC Technologies, Jess Lofland from We Rock the Spectrum – Woodland Hills, Sam and Bahar Velash of Best LA Movers , Jason Scheideman from Scheideman Design, and other great guests.
The Great Greek was fantastic. The lunch menu had a wonderful array of options and generous portions. The Spanakopita appetizer was unique from other restaurants because it really focused on the spinach rather than the cheese, and had a great buttery taste as well. The table shared an order of the Saganaki or “Pan-Flamed Cheese” which was flamed with a delicious cognac. The presentation was a hit! The waiter delivered it to the table and stood on a chair to light the cheese which made everyone applaud.
Entrée highlights included the Chicken Kebab Sandwich, the classic Gyro, and the most photogenic of the plates, the Blue Mediterranean Salad. It was more than just a lunch salad, with large tomato slices, tender chicken breast and an array of very colorful veggies like orange bell peppers and sliced green avocados. And yes, it tasted as delicious as it looks!
Lunch Club in the valley was wonderful opportunity to see our friends from over the hill and we will absolutely do it again! Next week #LunchClubLA is back on the westside at the original Plan Check on Sawtelle. If you’re interested in coming to #LunchClubLA you can save a seat with our Eventbrite page or join our Meetup group! Both are free and easy to use. Please use either of these platforms so we know how many are coming and can save you a seat!
See you then!
