Lunch at The Grove

The Grove is a good place to meet up with relatives and friends whenever we are in Los Angeles. It is convenient in terms of location. It has parking (which is important for family and friends who are most likely to take their cars) and there are many restaurants to choose from (including the adjacent Farmers Market) where you can sit down for a meal or perhaps just sip a cup of coffee or hot chocolate. We had glorious weather the Saturday we were there so we took a short stroll checking out a few restaurants before deciding where to have lunch. We ended up at La Piazza towards the end of the lunch hour and so we were able to get a good table for our meal.

The Farmers' Market is just beside The Grove and the clock tower marks where it is with respect to the mall.
A lot of people were out to enjoy the crisp sun, a welcome respite from the cool weather. It was still cool but the sun made it a nice time be outdoors.
One of the best tuna sandwiches I've had with the menu indicating it had handline tuna, which is a more sustainable way of catching the fish.

Stalls and kiosks selling food (pretzels, hotdogs, etc.) and various stuff (smartphone cases, cables, caps, etc.)
