LAReview

The Black Cat in Silver Lake is the ultimate choose-your-own-adventure date spot. You can either sit in the back and enjoy a full ricotta gnocchi dinner while enthralled in a conversation about how humans will eventually neoevolve themselves into a new species, or quickly escape from the bar after one drink when they say that their favorite Christmas movie is Die Hard. Either way, it’ll be a good time, and you’ll obviously be going next door to Pine and Crane after.
