These places are cozy, romantic (but not too romantic!) and full of good food that's perfect for breaking the ice.
A really great family restaurant with solid pizza and salads. Affordable, too!
Solid French bistro with a great burger. Quaint, cozy bar with good wine and beer menu. Perfect neighborhood spot.
The interior of this restaurant is so cabin-like and cozy. I love sitting at the bar and ordering a few appetizers and a couple cocktails.
I'm comfortable with saying that the food here is like art. You'll want to take a few moments before you dig in to just study the plate, the way the food is arranged, what garnishes are used, etc. Everything is interesting and luckily for all of us, everything is delicious. The desserts will blow you away. Don't skip the birch ice--it's like an edible snow globe.
I love the burgers, but I love the corn pups even more. The batter--made from Anson mills cornmeal--result in the best corn dog you'll ever have. Oh and the house made cream soda is a dream.
The pizzas are delicious every single time. My favorite is the squash blossom with goat cheese.
Serious seafood served in the form of small plates. The uni clam pasta and Chick-Fil-A inspired sandwich are musts.
Perfectly executed and relatively simple, Italian food. Oh and their pizza? Is now my favorite in all of Los Angeles.
