    Power Lunch
    235 N. Canon Drive, Beverly Hills

    Leslie Lopez, guest-relations director of this Thomas Keller resto, knows exactly what Simon FullerSusan and Robert Downey Jr.Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth and James L. Brooks want.

    "Most people don't even open the menu," she says. All they do is tell her if they're vegetarian, pescatarian or vegan, and chef David Hands whips up an impeccable meal. Popular items include the trout, salmon salad and a new toasted farro salad (Antonio Banderas wants it named after him).

    There's no one table that's desirable: Jimmy Iovine lunches on the patio, but Brian Grazer likes the tables by the outdoor wall. For execs from CAA, MGM, UTA, Gersh and Ryan Seacrest's company, it's a canteen -- albeit a Parisian-style, marbled-floor one.

    Says Seacrest, a Bouchon investor, "I have shared many meals there with my family, friends from American Idol, network executives, my team, and we had our holiday party there, too."
