Primitivo Wine Bistro: Bacon-Wrapped Date Night

SHARE


When you’re in the getting-to-know-you stage of a romance, you need a restaurant that strikes the right balance between fancy and casual, with a creative menu primed for sharing. Sampling a multitude of flavors helps keep a night’s momentum flowing, and reveals much about a person’s interests. For these situations, tapas are the clear choice, and one of the best tapas places in LA is Primitivo Wine Bistro on Abbot Kinney Boulevard. This Mediterranean eatery’s never without a crowd, but with deli-paper tabletops and eclectic art on the walls, it always finds a way to stay intimate. Ask for a table in the backyard patio beside the garden. An aromatic pinot noir from Santa Barbara will prep your taste buds for the parade of flavors to come. Swirl the glass, take in its delicate bouquet, and make a toast to an evening of culinary adventure. Start off on a healthy note by sharing a tangy artichoke salad with arugula and almonds. It’s the perfect lead-in to one of the true stars of the menu: rich, bacon-wrapped dates with chorizo. You’ll bond over how delicious they are. By this time, the fine wine and stimulating apps will have you relaxed and feeling good, so sit back and enjoy larger plates of short ribs, salmon, and pan-seared diver scallops while the conversation flows.  By the time the last plates are cleared, you’ll be planning a return trip to try everything you missed the first time. Who knows, this could become “your spot.”
