Meeting a good friend for a lovely lunch in Little Tokyo?
It's a joy to anticipate such a meet-up, and discussing all of the plentiful dining options, and what you might share, and where you might go for a drink first or a dessert after your meal, is part of the appetite-stoking run-up to your delightful date.

Like ordering off a vast menu brimming with a la carte choices, Delicious Little Tokyo makes it possible for attendees to choose exactly the sorts of events they'd like to attend.
Purchasing a ticket to your chosen tour or workshop is the next step, and while a few of the events sold out quickly, there are several more terrific options.
J-Town Treats & Eats, a self-guided walking tour priced at $65 per person, will offer opportunities to "pick up sweet and savory treats" as you explore, and a limited-edition tote bag boasting a few perks.
Matcha Mania, another self-guided walking tour presented by the Little Tokyo Community Council, will treat people to a quartet of matcha-themed sips and snacks.
The price? It's $32 per person.
If you can't make the tours, garden events, bingo fun, and tasty fun of Delicious Little Tokyo, stay tuned: The neighborhood has become known for celebrating its nummiest and noshiest eateries, all year long, through a host of festive evening events and weekend-big bashes.
Those happenings regularly pop up on the calendar, and holidays often feature plenty of food-oriented events, as does Nisei Week Japanese Festival, which is coming up in the middle of August.
Keep up on everything happening around the dining-tastic district, an area that's also full of memorable and moving cultural experiences, amazing galleries, and great shops, now.
