L.A. Lunch Dates

13 Feb

The Porch Restaurant (House of Blues), Sunset Strip. Delicious down-home Cajun style cooking served in a vibrant Louisiana country-house veranda type setting. The Pan-Seared Voodoo Shrimp and White Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding are to die for!! 
Fig Restaurant, Santa Monica. Located in the Fairmont Hotel, Fig boasts an outdoor patio where you will dine on exotic delights while surrounded by tropical plants and running water. 3rd Street Promenade adjacent.                                     

The Alcove, Los Feliz. The most delicious chicken pesto sandwich in L.A., should only be enjoyed while sitting outdoors at this ultra-trendy yet understated bistro/bakery.

Church & State, Downtown. Fantastically cosy, you will feel like a part of the family while drinking a rosé and sharing tantalizing treats in this boho-chic French restaurant in the old Nabisco building downtown. Do not leave without trying the French Onion Soup!                                                                

Farmer’s Market, West Hollywood. Housing approx. 34 different vendors all located in this quasi-outdoor marketplace, Farmer’s Market is sure to carry the exact item that will cater to your taste bud’s desire. Since it is located on the West end of The Grove, there is always opportunity to shop or catch a flick as a part of your venture.



Dukes, Malibu. Admittedly a little hokey, this Hawaiian themed restaurant will make you feel like you’re back on Waikiki beach with your first sip of that delicious Pina Colada.  http://www.dukesmalibu.com/

Saddleranch, Sunset Strip/Universal City Walk. Go for Mimosa’s and amazing breakfast foods on the weekend brunch menu. And yes, there is a mechanical bull for those feeling a little daring.

Gladstones, Malibu. Great seafood served on an outdoor, beachfront patio. Can’t get much better than that on a beautiful summer day.

Tokyo Wako, Everywhere. Like a higher-quality Benihana’s.  Go for a delicious, healthy and interactive lunch experience.
