Think of all the times you’ve gone to some intimate restaurant with your honey and fantasized about having the whole place to yourselves. At the Stinking Rose, you can make this fantasy a reality. While its name may suggest otherwise, this garlic-themed restaurant is one of the most romantic spots in LA, so make plans to come here on your next date night and prepare to be wowed. Request a table in the Rose’s “Garlic Lover’s Lane” section, a set of cabana-style tables with curtains you can close for 360 degrees of privacy. All the enticing smells and ambient sounds that make dining out exciting are still there, without the ancillary distractions that normally impinge on your romantic mood. When you open your private tent’s curtain, the restaurant’s pervading reddish hue casts a lambent glow inside your carriage, a bit of mood lighting that goes a long way in setting the vibe. Get a little closer to your date, because hey, who’s watching? Just be sure to bring plenty of breath mints — garlic is surprisingly not conducive to lip locking.
