On May 29, LA restaurants were given the OK to reopen for dine-in service. One month (and one COVID spike of epic proportions) later,they were ordered to shut down yet again. Outdoor dining, however, remains an option - so we made this guide. We’ll continue to update it as spots reopen around the city, and if there’s a patio you think needs to be included,email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Santa Monica’s Tiato is a restaurant and event space with a huge patio, where they host “Garden Nights” Wednesday-Friday. The menu involves ginger-glazed salmon, shaken beef, and other Vietnamese-inspired dishes. They’ve also got weekday lunch and weekend brunch, with plenty of mimosas (and, uh, yoga).
