    ...where would you go for lunch? It can be either in the DTD area or a hotel nearby

    oo good question! hope we get some good replies with suggestions I can use

    I generally stomp round reading all the menus getting more and more frustrated that I can't decide what I want. Then I'll stop by the rainforest cafe only to be told there's a two hour wait! Then usually round to the west side and a look at planet hollywood and often end up at house of blues.

    I did used to really really like a restaurant at the hotel over the road at the wyndham palace (whatever it's called now). The outback restaurant there, which wasn't one of the outback chain places, was really really nice. I don't know if it's still there now though

    If you only want a snack lunch then The Earl of Sandwich do a wide range of delicious hot/cold sandwiches [all made to order], together with soup, desert and drinks etc.
    It`s always our choice for lunch so as not to spoil our dinner...in our case a large lunch and our usual dinner plans don`t mix.

    good plan! we do the nothing much in the day thing to wait for a nice dinner as well but I've never tried earl of sandwich.

    I hope they'll be ok with me saying "nothing green anywhere near it" as I feel like need to machete my way through to the food with the amount of salad places in the states tend to put on the plate

    It`s more of a takeaway style place Keith rather than the meals being served on plates.
    My DW tends to go for a simple tuna melt and I opt for a hot beef/cheese sandwich that I think is called the "Original"..although I may be wrong there.
    In any case the sandwiches are yummy.

    We often spend a full day at DTD but usually have a meal at Bongos in the evening.
    However, if we are just spending a few hours at DTD and want a snack, we'd go to Cooke's of Dublin and just share a portion of fish and chips. I'm one of those who actually don't like the sandwich's at Earl of Sandwich.

    I'd skip a proper lunch and head to Ghiradelli's and go for a lovely big sundae with hot fudge sauce .... a perfect lunch for a special treat :-)

    Earl of Sandwich or Wolfgang Puck Express for a standard lunch. Portobello Yacht Club if I want a full meal and am not planning a full meal also at dinner.
