It’s rare to find a restaurant that can get your children’s imaginations all revved up before they even step inside it. Encounter is just that rare kind of restaurant. It’s elevated orb exterior looks like something out of Star Wars, sure to make your kids giddy with anticipation for the experience that awaits them. The inside of the restaurant is space-themed with wrap around 360 degree views — think of it as Seattle’s Space Needle in LA. Your kids will be mesmerized by the planes from nearby LAX landing and taking off just outside the restaurant’s windows. Play a game of taking turns guessing where the planes are going to and coming back from! Lots of restaurants can make for a good family outing, but not many can create dreams like Encounter does.
