Michaela's "Perfect For" Picks
First/Early In The Game Dates
El Prado (1805 W.Sunset Blvd) - "Cozy spot that’s perfect for a glass of wine or beer. The interior is chic and understated with a beautiful wood bar and exposed brick. Plenty of microbrews if you’re into that, plus some yummy bar snacks to munch on."
Speranza (2547 Hyperion Avenue) - "Beautiful outdoor patio with lots of yummy pasta dishes. I’ve been to a few birthday dinners here, it’s a perfect place to drink too much wine. The Bucatini Amatriciana is delicious."
Authentic Ethnic Eats
Rice Bar (419 W. 7th St.) - "Tiny Filipino lunch joint downtown that serves up the most delicious rice bowls. Lines out the door on most days. The chicken rice is my favorite."
Classic LA Establishment
Bar Stella (3932 Sunset Blvd.) - "The restaurant is a classic but the bar is great too. Slightly upscale spot with some very strong cocktails. It can get crowded so go early and stake out one of the cozy couches."
Unique Dining Experience
POT At The Line Hotel (3515 Wilshire Blvd.) - "A Koreatown gem, one of my favorite spots in the city. Great food, great music. The Kimchi Fried Rice is my favorite but the huge pots are incredible too. The Commissary is also worth checking out."
