Mandel, citing his sandwich preference recently among the cold offerings at Segerstrom Hall's new second-floor lobby Plaza Cafe. "The veggie pasta is also very good."

Everything about this place is too much: the sound-stage decor, the oversized menu, the overflow crowds, the overflowing hype. Then you spot movie industry types nibbling on duck salad and fajitas. In a deli!
