​Now THIS is our kind of place: Think a beautiful dark wood and sleek metal bar (with over a dozen local brews on tap), up-leveled happy hour specials like smoked chicken wings and a hearty, mile-high kale Caesar salad, and rock-solid takes on dinner classics like cedar-planked salmon and chili made with tender ribeye. Night owls take note: The fairly expansive bar menu is served til 1:15 am each night.

This hip yet inviting seafood and chops place isn’t cheap, but for a special night out there’s no place better. You’ll find fresh takes on everything from Wagyu beef burgers to halibut tacos, but keep your focus on the stellar seafood, whether it’s cold and briny oysters, sliders reimagined with lobster or the showstopping whole crispy sea bass with an addictive Thai lemon dipping sauce.

Mexican food is easy to find in Southern California, and when something is everywhere, it’s easy to take for granted. But this vintagey Mexican joint is a cut above, as much for the solid takes on classic dishes like taquitos con guacamole, Sonora-style crispy tacos, and chilaquiles. It’s a throwback to the 1950s, when it first opened its doors, and—especially when potentiated by a margarita or two—it’s an absolute blast.

The Great Greek

Another trip back in time, this party-like eatery has been serving up Greek delicacies, live music and fun since 1984. You’ll find all the usual suspects here: Creamy yogurt dips, sharp feta cheese plates, briny olives, and toothsome stuffed grape leaves. It’s a genuine hoot, and the experience of sitting around a big table sharing salty and sweet delicacies with friends is a pleasure too often ignored.

Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ

Translating to “Horn of the Bull” in Japanese, this well-loved chain serves up the deliciousness of Japanese grilled meats the fun way: By making YOU do the cooking! Each table comes equipped with a charcoal brazier in the middle so you can cook up savory miso-marinated pork belly, garlic-shoyu ribeye, salt-and-pepper filet mignon and a seemingly endless list of other grilled delicacies. If you don’t feel like cooking, you can order ramen, bibimbap, and other popular Japanese-Korean dishes. But you’d be missing out on an addictively fun part of the experience….

MidiCi The Neapolitan Pizza Company

Lest you forget where pizza really comes from, this lively and always bustling Neapolitan pizza joint will set you straight. The crusts are light and chewy, the toppings simple and flavorful. And after sampling MidiCi’s perfect margherita—just tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, and basil leaves—you may wonder why anyone would ever have it any other way.
