When dining out, enjoying food and wine is about more than just satisfying our hunger. It’s a form of entertainment that revolves around socializing and enjoying different flavors, textures and aromas.
Not to be overlooked is the ambiance. Contrast in your mind the hospital type lighting you might find in a strip mall taqueria with a television blaring on the wall to a quiet, relaxed dinner by candlelight. One establishment is for filling the belly, the other is for having an experience.
Skylight Gardens is a part of Westwood Village that Reyner Banham, author of the book ‘Los Angeles, The Architecture of Four Ecologies’ describes as ‘almost undisturbed, deliciously small in scale with its peeling whitewashed brick walls, it’s circular corner tower, tiled roofs, and minute, cool, internal courtyards with vines and balconies.’
The Spanish Colonial courtyard plan of Skylight Gardens dates back to the 1930’s. We hope you can join us in our beautiful space for a special dining experience.
Some wonderful new wines arrived this week. We now offer Melville 2013 Syrah and Viognier from the Santa Rita Hills and Hitching Post 2013 ‘Cork Dancer’ Pinot Noir from Santa Barbara County.
See you soon,
