Perfect restaurant to have an affair in.

foodiemahoodie Sep 7, 2011 11:00 PM

This could be a fun idea. (and inspired by another post - which insisted it wasn't about having an affair).

Of course it, has to be far away from the "other". If you're on the west side - are you safe going downtown? The valley?

Had a friend who had a girlfriend, fell in love with this model turned screenwriter. And he asked her out. He did some research for something interesting and obscure. He found it - a Latino transvestite bar in East L.A. He takes the date there and a few drinks into the evening - in walks his girlfriend! And his comment, priceless "Of all the Latino transvestite bars in the world...."

Anyway, I would say if the "other" doesn't like a particular cuisine - then that settles it.

But someplace obscure and interesting. And if not on the outskirts, in an unconventional setting where you'd probably not run into anyone you knew.

      Before. Or after. In would be another topic altogether. You're free to run with that one!

      If you went to FuRaiBo you could sneak out through the door leading to the bar next door and it's usually so crowded it'd be hard to spot someone

      OTOH Pacific Dining Car on the westside has a few different rooms where you could disappear for an hour or so

        If you're from the valley, and flush, then I'd say the back booth in Melisse - near the Wilshire St. exit. Then only one of you would be visible. And you can both sit on the hidden from public view side (and have a stellar, romantic meal).

          Can't say I have much experience in this field but, speaking hypothetically, I'm not sure I'd want to have an affair in any place with really good food. Because then I'd be tempted to keep coming back, become known as a regular, and then ... well, then you're just asking for trouble. So only the first of the following has food that's any better than execrable:

          1) Brodard. Because nobody can find their way to the entrance unless they already know where it is. Plus, if you can manage to look sexy while eating bahn tom to the sounds of Vietnamese dance pop (imagine the Chipmunks covering Justin Bieber), then you're in like Flynn.

          2) The Falcon Inn. Because everybody there looks like they're on the lam from *someone*, so complete omerta is guaranteed.

          3) Bahooka. High-backed booths, labyrinthine layout, scores of atmospheric fish tanks, flaming day-glo Hilo Hatties to strip your inhibitions.

          4) The snack bar atop Mt. Wilson. Amazing views, and several escape routes (bring trail shoes and lots of water).

              When did Mt Wilson get a snack bar? The best I'd ever done up there is to snag some potato chips during a free lecture in the auditorium.

                  Was at the "Cosmic Cafe" at the pavilion in Skyline Park atop Mt. Wilson this past weekend. Was told the snack shop had been reopened for about 4 years, and that it originally was open many years ago, in the 1970's I believe she said. Anyway, the food was snack shop quality, which is what you'd expect. Still, it was kind of nice munching on a giant, mediocre hot dog admiring the gorgeous view.

              I would think "dark" as in the Brentwood or maybe Jones in WeHo. Also a disguise is always in order as it probably won't be your mate that catches you but one of their friends who just happens to be out for dinner at the same place and sees you "canoodling" with your lover (but you don't see them most likely)...

                Actually, they lightened up the Brentwood. Still very dark, but if you are from the Westside, there is a lot of action and probably not the safest bet. For a really safe bet see below.

                  When I went to college in Santa Barbara in 1968/69 I got a part time job delivering beer for the Coors distributor in Santa Barbara. Because I was the "part time college kid" they gave me the out of town runs. The first time I pulled into the graveled drive of Cold Spring Tavern I thought it looked like a perfect place for a whore house. Close enough to town to get to without too much difficulty, but far enough out you probably wouldn't run into your wife while taking tea with the "ladies" of the afternoon delights. I always had a beer with the bartender on hot days at the Tavern after bringing in his Coors order.

                  I also delivered beer to the little market up the coast in Gaviota (don't know if it's still there or not).

                    The various restaurants / markets in Gaviota, most recently a Sunburst (cult) restaurant, closed many years ago. I still bicycle out there, turning around at those ruins, on my yearly trip to Santa Barbara.

                    Ahhhh! The Cold Springs Tavern, a perfectly, remote and very shady place with the requisite romantic history. of being a stagecoach stop and outlaw hangout.

                    Do they still have the outdoor BBQ on weekends that attracted the biker groups?

                        Honey, that's not a meal, it a weekend getaway....If you really want the ideal spot I recommend....ROOM SERVICE....haven't stayed much in LA hotels but I bet you can get some killer meals in Santa Monica overlooking the ocean and lets admit it, if it is an affair, food is probably not your main focus, and if it is, you should find someone else to have the affair with or go take your partner for a really good dinner with no "visibility" restrictions!

                          Yes, room service. Or as George Costanza opined, the trifecta of indulgence:
                          sex, television, and corned beef with spicy mustard.

                          But like Icarus, he flew too close to the sun on wings of pastrami...

                            There's a bar in Downtown, near the Smell, which seems to consist entirely of Armenian transvestite girls, and Mexican guys with handlebar mustaches and huge cowboy hats, hitting on the Armenian transvestite girls. And one lost Canadian guy hitting everybody up for free beer.

                            I don't know how or why this exists, but it makes me suspect that my life is a lot less interesting than it could be.

                                  Maybe trek down to OC, up the coast to Montecito/SB or take the ferry over to Avalon.

                                      Room service at a nice hotel - good idea, but...

                                      I was just watching La Dolce Vita last night. And in it he takes (Anouk Aimee I think) to the outskirts of town to slightly flooded basement flat of a prostitute and spends the night with her - the idea that a hotel is a place where you might be seen. Especially since she's a well known socialite who might be reconized in a hotel. This could be another, slightly different op altogether; "Where to dine when having an illicit affair with a celebrity."

You don't just happen to "pop in" for a drink or a bite there unless you travel with a separate car just to carry your wallet.

                                        If you actually talk to your SO, you'd most likely know if they were going there. However, you do run the risk that you run into them with someone else as well. ;)

                                                      Given that they are closed for remodeling, you will be eating lite and recreating outside. (originally replied to the wrong post - sorry)

                                              I've never been inside or heard a thing about it, but from the outside, Formosa Cafe on Santa Monica always looked like the spot for it.

                                                I ate at the Formosa Cafe once just because of "LA Confidential." Food is average at best.

                                                            This is almost too good. L'Affair Cafe in Mission Hills. I've driven past but never eaten there. Looks nice and intimate, and gets good reviews on Yelp. The location is certainly remote enough for west siders. Who has ever heard of, much less been to Mission Hills?

                                                            By the way, I'd like the name of that transvestite bar also.

However, they would only seat couples of opposite sexes there so Gloria Alread sued them and it shut them down. Can't for the life of me remember the name, but as I said, it was a loooooong time ago.

I was at Giardina's in Greenwood, Mississippi earlier this year and all they have are curtained booths. Eating by myself in one, was, however, somewhat pathetic. The waitresses were very friendly, just not quite friendly enough.

                                                                  And here near my neighborhood - there's Ye Olde Rustic on Hillhurst in Los Feliz. Deep booths and very very dark - good strong drinks and good burgers - but you wouldn't want to be in there if you lived as close to it as I do. It also often reeks of either spilled beer or too much disinfectant.

                                                                  And I'll add my voice to Beach Chick's: 'What's the name of the tranny bar that has great food?

                                                                        I got in touch with the aggrieved party via Facebook. She doesn't remember the incident at all. But her memory of dating that guy was that she was over the moon loopy for him and that the period might be a blur. I did get in touch with the "other" woman as she is an old flame of mine - but she was on the way out on a trip. She promised a "Part 2" to the story. The guy in question I'm kind of on the outs with. But I can always bury the hatchet and get the info. And the incident took place over 20 years ago - so I'd be surprised if the bar is still around.

                                                                                The second best restaurant, as generations of philandering studio executives and their naive prey can attest, is Jerry's Deli in Studio City - where the more discreet adulterers actually eat inside the bowling alley next door followed by a walk across the parking lot to the Sportsmen's Lodge Hotel. Again, I'm unmarried so no vows were harmed in this reporting ..but with 72 replies (and in the spirit of food-focused internet anonymity), this information deserves to be shared. :)
