ABOUT TOWN / DATE SPOTS LA

eating out at restaurants. can we call this a hobby? it’s definitely a huge part of our lives over in the designlovefest office. we get these two questions a lot, so we figured we would answer them here in our new LA column. and please answer below in the comments with YOUR two faves so we can try some new spots!

WHAT’S A RESTAURANT YOU WOULD TAKE YOUR FRIEND FROM OUT OF TOWN?

joanie: brunch at the commissary at the line hotel. i love that you get to sit inside the greenhouse and that it’s right next to the pool. feels like a mini – vacation

bri: for dinner, i would say  for pasta and wine and a patio full of plants. i’ve had many looooong friend conversations on that patio. they make their own pasta there too! i love the linguini with clams. ps, make sure you get the free almond cookies at the end.

erika: . it’s a great way to show them the city with a good view. , there’s live music from time to time.

wendy: , cute place to experience a fun tea tasting where you’ll select your favorite tea flavor as you pair it with their delightful sandwiches, scones and dessert. perfect for a party of two!

natalie: , they have food if you feel like you need to eat without having to do a sit down dinner (but they have that option too) and there are lots of different areas to post up and have a conversation.

WHAT’S ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE DATE SPOTS?

bri: . this is my NEW favorite date spot. it’s in eagle rock, the food is great and it feels like you’re dining in someone’s cozy house. mushroom risotto, whole chicken, beets and burrata. good for the soul.

joanie: put your name in at , walk next door to for happy hour cocktails (the old fashioned and the fizz are my favorites).

wendy: . ideal location to go for amazing french and japanese inspired dishes, their dimly lit atmosphere creates the romantic mood while the scrumptious desserts complete the night. highly recommend the chocolate bread pudding, order two, you won’t regret it!

EO_Two_Boots_Pizza

natalie: eat at the taco truck or pizza at and then work it off on the dance floor at at the echo.

erika: . it’s a restored 100-year-old movie theatre and they have a TON of beer taps that are all $6.50. good beer = happy guy.

    Maré – set outside beneath twinkling lights, you choose a broth and choose a shellfish. Then when you’re done with you mussels/clams/shrimp, they bring a bowl of fresh handmade noodles and a soft boiled egg to dump in be broth for a second course. So delicious and so atmospheric for both a date or a friend’s night.

    I also love Bowery Bungalow in Silverlake-it’s in an adorable little candlelit house and the Med/Middle Eastern plates are great for sharing.

    Man, I miss LA!! Lived there for 4 years and had to move to AZ for my job. I can’t wait to try some of these great suggestions when I visit again. Looking forward to the best desserts in LA column! 🙂

    My place to take friends would probably be Mohawk Bend for great vegetarian options & fun atmosphere. My best date spot is The Pikey. Cool, dark atmosphere, good food & cocktails, & (mostly) British rock & roll, which is my favorite!

    Nikki says:

    This is great! Im planning a trip to LA this summer, so this is so helpful! Thanks, Nikki

    For friends and dates, Gjelina (when we can get a table!), or to Phillipe’s in DT or Guisados (AMAZING tacos) in Boyle Heights for more low key, old-school LA adventures.

    Oh my god and the Tripel in Playa del Rey…amazing date spot with craft beer and the most delicious gourmet burgers ever.
