  1. (With the caveat that I haven't been) There is a South African restaurant and bar called Springbok Bar & Grill on Victory that friends have told us is dog (and people) friendly.

      But now I am wondering if they are open for lunch or not? Better call and see.

      Adder: just checked City Search which has their hours as 11 am to 2 am (if that is accurate)

    2. Try a few places with patios on Ventura, such as Le pain Quotidean, Art's Deli, Artisan Cheese Gallery (yummy sandwiches), in Studio City, Senor Fred's, Clay OVen, in Sherman Oaks.

      better off, concentrate on your BF's special day and leave fido at home. Then you're options are wide open.

        I agree, make it his day, I know I would enjoy that more. Dr Hogly Wogly BBQ has tables outside, I never see anyone sit there, call them.
