Recommendations for Beautiful Restaurant, Outdoor Seating, Great Food
I'm visiting LA next weekend to attend a wedding for the couple that has everything. Rather than trying to find the perfect gift, he's an interior designer, I'd like to give the couple of gift certificate for a great meal at some place special.
I would love to find a special restaurant that has outdoor seating, is very pretty and comfortable and, of course, has really great food. Any and all recommendations would be much appreciated.
I like the patio and food at Lucques. The atmosphere is peaceful and relaxing, and on cold nights they have heaters. They also have a warm and welcoming environment inside, which is nice when it's cold like it's been for the past 2 weeks. They have a fireplace and it's very romantic (if you go with the right person). I've always been happy with the setting either inside or outside. The bar is also welcoming, helped by a good bartender, and they make a great sidecar. Service is very good. The sommelier is knowledgeable, and even explains wine you bring in yourself. Food is your basic meat and fish, nothing too experimental; but the preparation is superb imho.
