We can’t think of a better option for a vegan date night than Olivia. This Koreatown spot has leather banquettes, bistro tables, and a menu of shareable dishes that are a bit more upscale and inventive than your average plant-based cafe. We especially love their crunchy fried green olives, served on a bed of creamy ricotta made from macadamia nuts and drizzled in honey. The rest of the menu is full of solid options like a Neapolitan-style pizza topped with sunflower seed mozzarella and a plant-based crispy chicken plate. You order everything tableside using a QR code and pay for it all on your phone, so be prepared to argue about splitting the bill with whoever you bring.
