      second Chez Mimi. Soo cute, romantic, good food.

    2. Lilly's in Venice -- it's a nice casual french bistro and you can sit in the garden area.

      Piccolo -- it's an Italian place just off the Venice boardwalk. Very small, very cute.

      1. Have you been to Boardwalk 26 in Marina del Rey? It's on Washington, just a few doors down from the C&O annex (about a mile in from the water). Very cute, romantic spot with a gauzy curtain ceiling and miniature lights.

            Ha - got it mixed up with the karaoke dive bar, Boardwalk 11. Thanks.

        1. Violet. Nook (West LA though). Abode: $$ but beautiful restaurant and good food.

          1. I went to One Pico last Friday for dinner and it was very good. Cocktail on the partio with heat lamp and then a yummy dinner in the dining room with ocean view and a fireplace.
