London, United Kingdom
I live in London and am looking for something that is typical LA, that I could not do back home but I don't want to be surrounded by tourists. I don't mind budget and this would be just me + my boo so something sort of romantic. If Ashton + Mila are eating next to us, that is a bonus.
Inn of the Seventh Ray's courtyard is situated next to Topanga creek and thousands of miniature lights create a fairy tale setting. It feels more like a meditation retreat then a restaurant. The food is carefully prepared and delicious. I ordered the Copper River Salmon and loved it.
There are four different seating areas at The Little Door - Garden Patio, Winter Garden, Piano Room and Blue Room. Each offers a slightly different experience depending on your mood. We shared the 'Little Door Meze Royale' (nice starter) and I revelled in the 'Farro Risotto'.
If you want to see Mila & Ashton, (or other A-list celebs), Giorgio Baldi is the place to be. I wouldn't call it a romantic atmosphere but it's definitely feisty!
Spago Beverly Hills would be my suggestion. It's very L.A. and the food is excellent. Don't miss the Agnolotti- it's heavenly.
