This bright and airy Italian bistro is a perfect laid-back spot for date night. Zach Pollack, of Sotto and South Coast Plaza's Pizzeria Ortica, has flipped Italian food on its head with an inventive menu, even calling his Tortellini in Brodo "al contrario" (or, opposite) -- tiny dumplings filled with hot broth and a sauce with diced mortadella and Parmesan cheese. His clever take on classic Italian dishes has brought crowds of locals and celebrities through the door.

12. Fork In The Road 2424 Main St, Santa Monica, CA 90405 (Santa Monica)

A kitchen fire in 2015 forced Santa Monica’s Fork in the Road to shutter. Over a year later, 2016 brought the restaurant back to life, like a Phoenix rising from the ashes, with a refreshing new look for its 62-seat dining room. The New American menu is accented by Mediterranean influence, with dishes like roasted Spanish octopus, a duck prosciutto flatbread with artichoke, arugula, and smoked mozzarella, and a compressed pork belly with mango-tomato chutney. Craft cocktails (virgin cocktails are also on offer) are creative twists on classics like the Autumn Old Fashioned with bourbon, bitters, and apple spice elixir.
