my sweetie lands in L.A. at 3:00 and she'll be hungry for dinner (coming from east coast). Want to take her somewhere not overly formal but with a special atmosphere ... near water perhaps? A lovely outdoor patio? Unique and walkable neighborhood? You tell me. Something inspiring and romantic but not necessarily 101 Dalmations-type checkered tablecloth gooey romantic.
Oh, and she doesn't eat meat, and not a Chinese fan, but fish is fine.
