A Food Affair
Cozy and romantic, this Beverlywood eatery with creamy stone walls and low-hanging sting lights specializes in French fare and flair with beautifully executed and presented shared plates, entrees, and devilishly indulgent desserts. A Food Affair's approachable menu flaunts French dishes you can actually pronounce -- like wild-caught crab cakes, spaghetti squash casserole, and organic duck lug confit -- and a changing lineup of creme brulees and flavored mousses that taste as good as they look.
Straight out of Aix-en-Provence, chef Christian Royere catered to the stars and worked in LA kitchens for decades before opening A Food Affair with his wife Babette nearly a decade ago. You’re in good hands here, with modern renditions of French classics served in a moody dining room or on the string-lit patio with umbrellas. Standout dishes include Mushroom Tourte, Roasted Bone Marrow, and Mom's Beef Bourguignon, and are perfectly paired with an extensive wine list featuring mainly French pours with some California wines. There's also a rose and bubbles section as well as sangria, cocktails, international beers, and more. With stone walls, antique French furniture, and a small garden patio, this date-night favorite is a great (and well-priced) romantic option without too much fuss.
