Cannery Row can be a mess of tourists, souvenir stalls, and subpar seafood spots, but Bistro Moulin is just one block away to rescue you. Go for a romantic dinner with someone you already like—that way you won't have to worry about breathing on them after you dive into their French onion soup topped with melty gruyère. You can’t go wrong with any entree, like seared duck breast with caramelized peaches, but the best one is the moules frites. It comes with perfectly-cooked mussels and a sauvignon blanc-shallot sauce swimming with herbs that’s exactly what you’ll want to dunk your fries in. If you somehow have any room left, definitely finish your meal with the profiteroles stuffed with ice cream and drizzled in Belgian chocolate.
