casual, interesting date place w/ potential for a quiet walk afterward

OK, here's a sort of strange solicitation... but I'm looking for something really specific.

Anyone know of a place to go for a casual, interesting date for dinner or dessert where afterwards you could easily just up and take a nice, quiet walk around?

A good example would be Aroma Coffee and Tea in Studio City...

Anyone have any input on something like this?

  1. I recnetly had a meal with boyfriend at Sawtelle Kitchen. It's a cute little Japanese/Italian restaurant. The food is pretty good. Price is reasonable. And it's a cozy place with dim light.

    After your meal, you and date can walk around Sawtelle Blvd. Or if you prefer a quiter walk, just walk around the residential area next street over. We often park our car in the residential area. After dinner, we enjoy a nice walk to our car.

    1. Venice is good for this. If you went to Joe's on Abbot Kinney, then you could walk down Abbot Kinney or, further afield, into the Venice Canals.

      1. Any of the places on Main Street in Santa Monica are perfect for this.

        1. Restaurant at the Getty Center.

          1. You might try Dodger Stadium, especially in the field level box seats. During the later innings of games these days, when the Dodgers are being crushed and the fans have all left to beat traffic, you could enjoy a very quiet stroll through the Dodger Stadium concourse. Of course, if the Dodgers start winning again, this might change, but you shouldn't need to worry too much about that.

              You could do this even if the Dodgers start winning ... LA fans never stay past the 7th inning ... win, lose or draw.
