Nice meal in Hollywood/WeHo area with patio, full bar

Baby Ruth Jul 10, 2006 07:51 PM

I'm looking for a nice dinner spot with a full bar and patio somewhere in the Hollywood/West Hollywood area. My friend requires the patio for smoking and full bar for Jack and Cokes. He wants to get a little dressed up, too. I'm looking for good food and a nice wine list or BYO policy. We'll eat anything.

We liked Ortolan, Hungry Cat and Norman's for this sort of thing. Something new would be great.

    Orso on 3rd Street across from Cedars has a nice patio as does Pane e Vino on Beverly a few blocks east of La Cienega.

      Magnolia, Table 8 and Katana are all good, fun restaurants with outdoor dining.

        heard some good comments about Mirabelle lately.

          Norman's, on Fridays, they offer roast pig and paella
          Off-Vine restaurant is in a charming CA bungalow w/outdoor seating
          Mimosa and Pastis have outdoor seating
          Le Petit Cafe on Melrose Ave

            Bin 8945 should fit your request beautifully.

              I like the O-Bar (esp. because of their desserts and their drinks) or Basix Cafe (the $4 crabcakes during happy hours are pretty good)

                Pane e Vino never disappoints.
                Mimosa? The Little Door? Orso? Locanda Veneta?

                  While I've only had drinks there, how about Citizen Smith?

                    While the food isn't the best ever, I think there is nothing nicer than sitting outside at the Chateau Marmont for dinner (not Bar Marmont). Beautiful patio, subdued hollywood scene, and great history in the hotel. Definitely need a reservation.
