Lolo is a neighborhood hangout in East Hollywood with an extensive wine list, heavy pours, and a menu of things that go well with that wine - all of which make it an ideal date spot. The outdoor dining room is small, but still has enough room to have a serious conversation without worrying about people eavesdropping. A lot of the food tends to be heavier than you'd usually see in LA, but not in a bad way - the confit chicken is crisp, moist, and complemented by the mushrooms and gravy on the side. Anything involving pasta or bread is probably a safe bet, since both are made in-house (the gnocchi with pancetta and butternut squash, in particular, is worth your time). The portions are big for the price, meaning if you’re on a date, it’s safe to just order a couple entrees, split an appetizer, and be out for under $80.
