5 ROMANTIC RESTAURANTS IN LA
OX & SON (SANTA MONICA)
Helmed by Executive Chef and Partner Brad Miller, Ox & Son delivers elevated comfort food alongside an extensive assortment of artisanal beer and specialty wines. The modern American cuisine features seasonal ingredients sourced from local farmers markets, with two special dishes available for Valentine’s Day: American Caviar with Classic Accoutrements and Whole Roasted Lobster Thermidor.
Dudley Market serves seasonal California dishes from Chef Jesse Barber for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Located just steps from the beach, the restaurant’s large windows, exposed brick and communal tables create an airy, rustic vibe. Beginning Friday evening on Valentine’s Day weekend, Dudley Market will offer Chef Jesse Barber's 10-course tasting menu for $75 per person, in addition to their regular a la carte selections.
At Salt Air in Venice, Chef Greg A. Daniels’ refined yet eclectic bistro fare focuses on fresh seafood and seasonal ingredients. Dishes run the gamut from shareable small plates to hearty whole fish and grilled meats, while classic cocktails and more than a dozen by-the-glass wines are also available. In the airy, brick-walled dining room, skylights fill the space with natural light, and artful details complete the relaxed bohemian vibe.
Latin hot spot Cerveteca serves up Mexican comfort food, raw bar specialities and a globally inspired beverage program. Enjoy Valentine’s Day over their Puerto Nuevo — a meal for two at $120 per couple, which includes either Grilled Steak N’ Lobster or Whole Branzino, plus a bottle of Domaine Brazilier Sparkling Brut Rose and a dessert to share.
