Need First Date Option in Hollywood
Need First Date option Hollywood area.... something romantic, where we can talk etc. I'm treating and it has to be fairly reasonable. ($40 a person including tax, tip etc). Any cuisine is great.... ideas? Silverlake, Los Feliz etc. Really special place, hidden off the beaten path... charming etc. Great food. Red meat a plus.
I really like Hungry Cat as a date place, but I wouldn't call it romantic. It all depends on what your date's speed is.
The patio at Dominick's is beautiful and in my opinion romantic.
Opus (Wilshire & Western) is a romantic spot.

If you'd like to go ethnic, I'd suggest Jitlada Thai for something different.
I'd also look into Edendale Grill, Cafe Stella, or over in Hollywood, Magnolia or the Bowery.
I'll probably get some flak for this, but I had a great date with my boyfriend a few months ago at Cafe des Artistes in Hollywood. The service was timely and unintrusive, and the waiter's wine suggestion was perfect. My steak tartare with frites was tasty and made tableside, so the seasoning was to my liking. The BF's steak frites was lovely--cooked perfectly, nice and juicy. We shared the apple tart, but I would recommend trying something else (the crust was a bit soggy).
