Looking for fun, tapas, wine, ambiance
My best friend and I are looking to go out and enjoy the L.A. dining scene...something we rarely get a chance to do these days. We are two 40 something year olds who are looking for a great place to unwind, have a few glasses of wine, and tapas with a great sexy atmosphere. Preferred location: Miracle Mile/3rd Street/Beverly, Silverlake/Los Feliz, or Santa Monica.
Any and all suggestions are appreciated!
Thanks for your response Emme. We ended up going to Tasca but unfortunately I wasn't impressed. The ambiance was just so-so, the service was lackluster, the food was average BUT the wine was pretty decent.
After reading all the positive reviews I was pretty disappointed. I guess what I'm looking for is a place to take friends, a date, out of town guests etc. that's a little more interesting w/ great food, great service, interesting and authentic decor and ambiance (not like the Penthouse in SM -- that was another disappointment -- it felt very contrived).
I don't mind quirky or off the beaten path, in fact I like finding little treasures in LA. Unfortunately, Tasca didn't quite cut it for me. It was just a little neighborhood wine bar with really nothing special to offer. I had a great time w/ my friend but we both left wanting something a little more. Just thought I'd leave my honest review.
Thanks for your help. I'll try Bazaar or C&M next time.
