Firefly may be the closest thing to a modern day secret garden in L.A., walls of tangled ivy included. Found on a more popular stretch of Ventura Boulevard in Studio City, the fine-dining restaurant offers modern American cuisine from chef Perry Pollaci in a romantic, cozy setting—a heated patio is decorated in candles and twinkling lights, while the library-like bar area offers a truncuated menu and an ideal date-night vibe. In this secret garden, you’re fed exquisite plates of Pollaci's carefully constructed dishes.

What a charming place to eat - or even just grab a cocktail. It's a little hard to find with no visible sign and ivy creeping up the sides, but that kind of makes it even more charming once you're inside. A dark, library-esque cocktail lounge is the perfect place for a cozy date, but if you want something a little more bright and spacious, the back patio is great, too. I've had hit-or-miss food here - dinner is definitely better than brunch - but if you're looking for some solid ambience, Firefly has it.
