This location of the Bacari local mini-chain is in the thick of things on West 3rd Street, and has one of the best outdoor dining rooms in the city. The small plates are just OK, but you’re really here for the incredible patio. There are huge trees growing out of the middle of the outdoor dining room and lights hanging from every branch, so it feels a bit like you’ve accidentally stumbled into Tinkerbell’s living room.

Napa Valley Grille
Napa Valley Grille is an American restaurant/wine bar in Westwood that's perfect for when you don’t want to drive six hours to the real thing.
You’d think that a place like Bar Covell that so thoroughly holds your hand through the ordering process would feel a bit condescending. But as much as LA pretends not to need it, the crowd at Covell every night proves otherwise.
Same Same in Silver Lake has combined two cornerstones of human happiness (wine and Thai food), and dinner here will inevitably make you happier.
