It must be love when someone takes you to the Inn of the Seventh Ray, a fine dining piece of heaven in the idyllic Santa Monica Mountains. Perhaps the most romantic restaurant in Los Angeles, guaranteed to impress that special someone.
The drive might take a little longer, but the expedition to this creekside restaurant is worth the extra miles. Nestle at a candlelit table surrounded by rocky mountains, a nearby waterfall and the sounds of birds chirping, while savoring the freshest, most delicious foods and wines that California can offer.
Executive Chef Bradley Miller uses organically grown ingredients from local farms, hormone-free meats and free range poultry. His guilt free creations include Shrimp Cocktail 2010 of fresh belize shrimp, olive oil poached tomatoes and rosemary essence, the Grilled Portobello Mushrooms topped with apricot sauce and truffle oil, and Crispy Vegan Duck with herbed soba noodles, baby bok choy, organic carrots and ginger apple cider emulsion.
The supremely salacious dishes pair easily with one of their robust and earthy organic wines, using grapes from local wineries. End the magical night by sweetening the senses with a spoonful of maple cheesecake and fresh mint cream.
