Ta­ble for two. One of us likes the floor

Los Angeles Times - - THE PETS ISSUE - BY JENN HARRIS jenn.harris@latimes.com Twit­ter: @Jen­n_Har­ris_

If you’re a pet owner, you know “the look.” Just as you’ve grabbed your keys, tied your shoe laces and zipped up your jacket, your dog sits in the door­way, head down, sad eyes look­ing up for­lornly, tail im­mo­bile on the f loor. The only thing left to do is grab the leash and pick a dog-friendly res­tau­rant for lunch. Yes, there are some dog-friendly pa­tios around town, and even a cou­ple of spe­cial menus de­signed for our four-legged friends.


There’s plenty of shade and faux grass on the pa­tio at this West Hol­ly­wood res­tau­rant. While you dis­cuss a script re­write with your agent, your dog can lounge around and lap up a bowl of cool wa­ter. 8752 W. Sunset Blvd., Los An­ge­les, (424) 239-1630,



At both the Los Feliz and Sil­ver Lake lo­ca­tions, not only are dogs welcome, they’re spoiled. The pa­tio pro­vides a large court­yard with plenty of room to move around, and the staff is ready with free wa­ter and dog treats.

Or­ganic dog treats. Two lo­ca­tions, www.home­r­estau­rantla.com

Lazy Dog res­tau­rant and bars

If the name and dog mo­tifs weren’t enough of a hint, the pa­tios at this res­tau­rant chain are de­signed for dogs. You just have to fol­low the rules. Don’t put your dog on the ta­ble or your lap. Avoid beg­ging, bit­ing and bark­ing (that would be your dog). Keep your dog on a leash. If you and your pet fol­low the rules, you can or­der your dog some din­ner. For $4.95, you can treat your pet to a ham­burger patty and brown rice or a grilled chicken breast and brown rice. If your dog is a veg­e­tar­ian, plain brown rice is $1.95. And the wa­ter is free. Mul­ti­ple lo­ca­tions, www.lazy­do­grestau­rants.com

The Mor­ri­son

There’s an en­closed pa­tio where each dog re­ceives a wa­ter bowl and a cou­ple of Milk Bone dog treats. If he is still hun­gry, there’s a spe­cial dog menu with three dishes, in­clud­ing Where’s the Beef ? made with chopped ham­burger beef and rice; Cock-a-Doo­dle-Doo with chicken and rice; and the Fra­nen­weinie bowl with chopped hot dogs and rice. The bowls are $6 each and come with more Milk Bone treats. 3179 Los Feliz Blvd., Los An­ge­les, (323) 667-1839,



You no longer have to de­cide be­tween a fash­ion­able lunch with friends or time with your dog. While you’re sip­ping some dry rosé and eat­ing chef Kris Morn­ingstar’s house-made char­cu­terie on one of the most beau­ti­ful pa­tios in the city, your dog can be there too. There isn’t a spe­cial dog menu, but your pet can stay cool with some wa­ter, don a stud­ded col­lar and hang out in style. 8265 Bev­erly Blvd., Los An­ge­les, (323) 746-5130, www.ter­rinela.com
