10 Best Vegan Restaurants for a Date Night in LA
There are only green flags at these vegan eateries!
Whether you’re scheduling a first Hinge meetup or a wedding anniversary dinner, environment is everything! Because we understand this struggle oh-so-well, we’ve created this list of the 10 best vegan restaurants for a date night in LA.
Book a table at Nic’s On Beverly for an unforgettable dinner! From the aesthetic patio and dining room to the impeccable service, this eatery is top-notch. But no matter what, order one of the Detroit-style pizzas to share.
This vegan Italian restaurant is our go-to destination for a vegan date night in LA. Because you can never go wrong with pasta, pizza, and wine! Bonus points if you slurp up Pura Vita’s Spaghetti Carbonara with your boo Lady and the Tramp style.
Culver City & Downtown LA
This upscale eatery presents vegan Japanese fare at its finest! For first-timers, we suggest ordering the Chef’s Special Tasting Menu. First, dig into appetizers and bites like gyoza, tempura mushroom, and croquettes. After that, enjoy several rolls of sushi with a side of pickled vegetables.
Without a doubt, Crossroads Kitchen is among the best upscale restaurants for a vegan date night in LA! The celeb hot spot serves innovative Mediterranean food you can’t find anywhere else. For example, the artichoke oysters offer a taste and texture unlike any other vegan appetizer in town.
Going on a date to the Santa Monica Pier or Third Street Promenade? Then hop over to Montana Avenue and grab dinner at Margo’s after. The modern vegan restaurant features a variety of rave-worthy dishes. We love the Baby Kale Salad, Taco Trio, and Sicilian-Style Gluten-Free Pizza.
In case you missed it, Overthrow Hospitality opened its first LA venture last year! With a gorgeous patio, swanky dining room, and delicious tapas, Avant Garden Bistro is bound to impress your partner. So book a table and get ready for a wonderful evening!
Do you have a case of the first-date jitters? Then allow Donna Jean’s delicious wine and food to put you at ease. From artisan vegan cheeses and fresh pasta to pizza and cheesecake, each dish is made from simple, locally sourced ingredients. Cheers to that!
Los Feliz, Long Beach, & Santa Ana
Stroll down the hipster streets of Los Feliz and lead your date into Seabirds Kitchen’s newest restaurant! If you want to enjoy a multi-course meal, then select a few small plates and entrees. If you just want a dessert to end the night, then go for Seabirds’ famous churro-waffle hybrid, The Chaffle!
You can celebrate any occasion or craving at this plant-based eatery. Because the menu covers a variety of cuisines! For instance, you can order American burgers, Mexican tostadas, German pretzels, and more. Might we suggest ringing in Taco Tuesday with vegan margaritas, nachos, and tacos?
West Hollywood & Pasadena
Show your significant other you love them with a meal at Real Food Daily. For one thing, the restaurant has been around since 1993, so it’s a vegan staple! In addition, the food and beverage menu competes as one of the best in LA.
When Allie responded to an Instagram post on @vegoutlosangeles a few years ago, she had no idea she’d join the coolest vegan team on the planet. An Austin native, actress, yogi, and part-time sword fighter (don’t ask!), Allie is on a mission to live her best life and inspire others to do the same. She graduated from Hussian College In Studio with a B.F.A. in Contemporary Musical Theatre + Film and currently acts, writes, and eats her way through Los Angeles.
