First dates. Chances are, you are going to have a lot of them. If you are a guy, that also means you might be spending a decent amount of cash taking someone you don't even know out to lunch or dinner. Take it from a woman, these are some places that will make a good impression without making you go broke.
Vegan that is well priced and delish. Meatball sub, nachos and chicken run ranch burger in a wrap are favs
One of the best pizzas in the city. Super thin crust.
Love their spinach quesadillas and all their fresh juices (watermelon, guava, mango). Feels like being on vacation.
This is a wonderful tiny place for dinner in Silverlake. On weekends there can be a line but it is worth the wait. Their portions are quite big. Recommend: goat cheese latkes, spinach salad and Mac n cheese
Cute place to brunch with the girls. Love the Mango Beet Salad.
Alcove is a sweet little spot in Los Feliz. It is very charming. Their lunches and desserts are so good. Pick a comfy spot under a shady tree on a sunny day.
One of my favorite places to get ice cream in LA. They have an eclectic selection of flavors which changes often. They are also open late!
Finally, an truly fun and happening bar in Santa Monica. Feels like walking into an A&F ad. It is best during the summer when you can watch the sun set over the ocean. During the winter, they cover up and use heaters so it's great year round.
Yum! The food here is always so fresh. No leaving feeling so full that you want to crash. The decor is also very open and airy. This is the type of place Silverlake does well.
