Outdoor dining

With omicron seeming particularly spreadable, any one have some food suggestions for outdoor dining fun lively good atmosphere and nice space? It would be for this coming Friday so needs to be a place where a reservation is actually gettable. TIA!

Just a housekeeping note (for the mod)… I’m seeing so many “outdoor” topics on the L.A. board, some for specific restaurants, other for specific geographic locations within the greater LA area.

Having said that, I think this thread (simply titled “Outdoor dining”) is good. Will ask the mod. to see what he thinks of putting all primarily “outdoor dining” queries and comments under this one topic for easy searchability, as many board contributors and lurkers are looking for outdoor options at this point - It’d be good to have one central thread to tie it all in. (Will flag myself so the mod can see…)


On the westside, Birdie G’s and Hatchet Hall both have nice outdoor setups that are spaced out. Felix has got a back patio, but you said gettable reservation :frowning:

Rossoblu downtown and Redbird both have good outdoor spaces.

If you’re willing to take a little more risk IMO one of the safest ways to dine indoors is KBBQ at a place with good overhead ventilation which will hit your lively atmosphere. Went to Moodaepo II (which is not high end by any stretch) last month before Omicron started ramping up and it was cold inside because they were pulling in so much air into the vents and drawing outside air in replace it.




Thanks for the recs I have rezzies at both majordomo and Rossoblu for the following week. But I was able to book cento for Friday in the late evening, will report back!


I think the various topics mostly make sense because people are looking for different things.

I’ll start posting pics of outdoor dining situations in this thread so that people can see different options.


Don’t forgot…

There’s a lot of outdoor dining threads… like a lot of threads for the same restaurant. :woman_shrugging:t4:


Have fun! Dress warmly! Report back! :hugs:

It might be best to create topics on outdoor dining by LA regions, SFV, SGV, South Bay, DTLA, etc… That way people can find places in a particular area more easily.

People have already created such threads as they were looking for recommendations in particular areas.
