Fantastic Dates and Where to Bring Them

February 05, 2017

Hallmark’s favorite holiday is flying clear into sight. Why settle for paper cards when your date can be spoiled rotten? Eat your heart out at these decidedly lovely restaurants.

Le Comptoir

Le Comptoir is a freewheeling establishment with the heart of a pop-up restaurant. Don’t let the odd decor fool you, chef Gary Menes has a laser focus. With seating for just twelve, this kitchen gives you and your valentine an uncommon level of culinary attention.

For reservations call (424) 571-3536.

Kiyokawa

A sushi bar is about as romantic a setting as one could hope for. Kiyokawa lets you sit shoulder-to-shoulder with that special someone while you share a carafe of hot sake. A procession of grilled eel, rolled mackerel, and sliced abalone is on its way.

For reservations call (310) 358-1900.

Canele

A favorite spot for eye-opening brunch, an impromptu destination for old friends, Canele is something different for everyone. It’s first-come-first-served here, just the way chef Corina Weibel likes it. Lighted by candles, Canele is a must for intimacy.
