Chilly nights in L.A. mean getting to snuggle up inside the city’s coziest spaces, where roaring fireplaces, charming patios and romantic nooks beat the buzz and flashes of your usual night out in Tinseltown. Feel warm and welcome while feasting on a comforting winter dinner in these Los Angeles dining spots.
Curtained cabanas, a library lounge with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and plush velvet couches, a massive fireplace on the veranda and a dimly lit bar, make the ivy-swathed Firefly a hotspot for couples and cocktail sippers who prefer a laid back ambience. Hearty dishes in the form of Lobster Pasta, Filet Mignon, Skirt Steak and Mushroom Pappardelle pair well with the ultra-comfy space.
Lucques offers an enchanting hideaway in the middle of the frenzied Hollywood landscape. The calm yet cool restaurant features brick walls, wood beams, a wood-burning fireplace, a candlelit patio and on Sunday evenings, a pre-fixed family style menu served under a sheltering olive tree. Elegant cooking is showcased through dishes such as Ricotta Dumplings with wild mushrooms, cauliflower, Pecorino and Trufflebert Farm hazelnuts or Grilled Duck Breast with farro, black rice, mustard greens and pomegranate salsa.
It’s like dining in your very own living room –a very upscale living room with the bonus of exceptional service. Inviting fireplaces, lush sofas, oversized coffee tables, a bookshelf and intimate alcoves create a secluded sanctuary that seamlessly blends the comforts of home with the sophisticated ambience of a luxurious hotel restaurant. James Beard award-winning chef José Andrés serves gussied up comfort cuisine and inspired cocktails. Enjoy your home away from home with Grilled Prime Strip Loin with sherry peppercorn cream or Braised Beef Short Rib served with cheddar grits, veal jus and Cipollini onions.
Carved into a historic former rectory, Redbird is a unique dining destination that pays homage to the cathedral next door, with its classic architecture peppered with simple modern touches.

Refined yet approachable dishes include California Sea Bass with butterball potato, leek ash and pickled radish, Liberty Farms Duck with turnip, mustard greens and orange and Rack of Red Wattle Pork with buckwheat spaetzle, fig mostarda, pecans and Calvados blood sauce.
Diners will forget they’re in L.A. once they enter this country retreat. Eveleigh offers a pastoral escape with its wide barn doors, wood-clad ceilings and olive trees.
