First Date Place For Tonight - Help, Please

1st date tonight - anything but Italian. Hollywood/WeHo area, but willing to travel a bit. A place to have good conversation, tasty food, and make a great first impression.

Thanks, y'all!

      Yamashiro? Don't be silly ... you want the person to have a shot at a second date, don't you?

    2. Providence in Hollywood, or Comme Ca. Or perhaps Sona? Expensive though... I'm not sure about Yamashiro, the food is not that good, although atmosphere/view wise it is nice ..

        I think Providence and Sona would be over the top for a first date. Maybe Hungry Cat?

          the last time i went there, the tables/seating at the hungry cat were far from comfortable. we sat on little wooden stools out in the patio area. the inside of the restaurant seemed to be under construction.

          the food was sublime, but for a first date, i'd opt for a more comfortable spot.

      2. or even magnolia, its pretty romantic in the back areas...

          i agree. magnolia is a good first date place

        2. Since you didn't mention budget, I'll point out that most of the places mentioned so far are rather pricey. Unless you're a trust-fund baby or this is an episode of The Bachelor, you might want something a little more modest for a first date.

          These were my suggestions from September for a first date in Studio City, just over the canyon from WeHo:

          1. I LOVE Hugo's restaurant -
            And, I think it's a great place for a first date. Also, Brasilia in Los Feliz area.
            Have fun! :) KQ
