When it comes to romantic meals, seafood always tops the list. There is something elegant about enjoying truly fresh seafood with someone very special. Add a few cocktails or glasses of perfectly paired wine and you have the makings of a truly memorable evening for two. For more than 20 years, Water Grill has been one of the best places to visit in California for the freshest and rarest seafood delicacies.
The recently renovated Water Grill has a casual atmosphere, but that is not any indication of the quality of food that you are sure to enjoy. The casual atmosphere is designed to be a more modern and refreshed version of the original space, and now compliments the way that southern Californians enjoy their seafood. You can peruse the live tanks for local Spiny and Maine Lobsters, Ridgeback Shrimp and Dungeness Crab, and you’ll love the larger tables (perfect for sharing) and more comfortable booths and chairs. Plus with The Staples Center just down the street, you can imagine the famous names that are seen dining at this fantastic restaurant.
So grab your sweetheart and start your meal with a dozen oysters from the Raw Bar. The most popular items from the bar are probably the Naked Cowboy or Rappahannock from New York and Virginia respectively. Then enjoy Wild Pacific Swordfish, Ecuadorian Mahi Mahi, or Big Eye Tuna. Of course, the live Maine Lobster is always a spectacular treat, as is the Live Santa Barbara Spot Prawns or Wild Barents Sea Red King Crab. Make sure to save some room for the incredible Caramel Bread Pudding with alaea red sea salt, or the Pear Financier, featuring poached pears with an orange basil ice cream. You can also choose from a variety of daily homemade sorbets and ice creams.
For this romantic treat, pick your sweetheart up in the truly special 2013 SLS GT Roadster from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. You’ll be able to put the top down and cruise down the highway in total style and elegance as you prepare for a very romantic meal for two at the incredible Water Grill.
