Other than Sunset Plaza, any suggestions for nice places to eat outside in Hollywood/Weho area these nights...nice to be out when things cool off...looking for anything new...there are a bunch of places on Third but hoping for something more around Sunset or Santa Monica

  1. Have no idea what your budget is or what you mean by "nice" but these come to mind: The Den, Hugo' s, Basix, Petrossion.

    Basix Cafe
    8333 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069

    1. agree that not sure what you're after, but...

      The Abbey - depending upon the crowd you'll tolerate, I love the Abbey's outdoor patio
      Cuvee on Robertson
      Newsroom on Robertson - not everyone here loves it, but i like it for good healthy food
      Chateau Marmont - eat outdoors

      Chateau Marmont
      8221 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90046

      2000 Avenue of the Stars, Los Angeles, CA 90067

      1. One of my favorite patios is Yatai on Sunset
        Mexico Restaurante Y Barra is a fun outdoor venue in WeHo.
        On La Brea there are several options - Cube comes to mind.
        Beverly Options: I think Terroni has some tables outside, Pane y Vino and Bistro LQ too.
        And, it you are looking highend, Bastide, Bazaar, BLT Steak and Spago all have al fresco options.

        1. re: Ciao Bob

          if coming over to Beverly, i def second Pane e Vino... i love their back patio.

        2. BLT- The patio is super nice during these warm evenings. They also have heaters for chillier nights.

          BOA- Too much of a scene for me, but they also have a very large patio.

          Cecconi's- Robertson and Melrose. Small but great outdoor patio. Even the bar area feels like you are outdoors with the doors opened.

          Piccolino- It's enclosed mostly with clear vinyl, but surrounded by plants. They do open it up though. Expensive italian, but very 'neighborhoody' at the same time.

          Lucques- Fully wall enclosed behind the restaurant but absolutely open air above. Great food. Fun Sunday suppers and other menu events.

          Yatai also on Sunset for Japanese Tapas. They usually have a movie playing outside

          Le Pain Quotodien- Nice and quiet

          Dominique's- down by Jerry's on Beverly. Great enclosed outdoor patio in the back

          28731 Los Alisos Blvd Ste 3, Mission Viejo, CA 92692

          8474 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90069

          1. re: LATrapp

            Agree completely on BOA and Lucques. I also very much like Pane e Vino that Ciao Bob and Emme suggested. I would add The Little Door to the list.

            8474 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90069

            The Little Door
            8164 West 3rd Street, Los Angeles, CA 90048

          2. Some of my old standbys: Taste on Melrose has a (covered) patio. Further east on Melrose you've got The Foundry. And of course there's always Urth Caffe.
