When it comes to picking restaurants, you sometime have to choose good food over ambience, but at The Inn At The Seventh Ray, you've got both your bases covered. The Secret Garden-esque vibe at this legendary Topanga Canyon resto is probably the most beautiful in Southern Cali, and if you're looking for a romantic spot, you cannot beat this L.A. eatery. But The Inn is more than just a pretty place; everything served here is locally grown, organic, and the staff promises that dining here will "raise your body's light vibrations." If that doesn't make your inner Lady of the Canyon happy, than the amazing wine list here will. Every bottle, glass, and carafe is totally organic and bio-dynamically grown, meaning that you won't just be getting the very best taste possible, but also all the grapes are all harvested according to the most stringent agro-ecology standards. Come for a Riesling and stay for the antibiotic and hormone-free food and be satisfied knowing that you are enjoying an L.A. establishment that marries old world charm, picturesque landscapes, and cutting edge gastro-technology. Yum.
Inn of the Seventh Ray, 128 Old Topanga Canyon Road (at Old Topanga Canyon Boulevard); 310-455-1311.
