Date Night: Watch the Sunset from We Olive La Jolla
At first you might think, an entire store dedicated to extra virgin olive oil? But We Olive is an “olive oil experience,” with an olive oil tasting bar and other goodies. And now at the La Jolla location, they’ve got a California wine bar. Try various reds and whites as well as Castelvetrano olives from Sicily, California almonds (from a small California farm), heirloom tomato caprese salad, and artisan cheese and charcuterie.
But the part that’s really datey—other than the fact that you can taste olive oils together and show off your sophisticated palate (please refrain from being too obnoxious)—is the view. We Olive La Jolla used to be a jewelry store. They ripped out the back and made a giant opening, and it is the sickest view ever. And I mean sick in a good way.
An elegant atmosphere, wine, and a beautiful view. (Bonus: in the front of the store, you can buy pastes and pasta and other fine foods. Personally, I’m Italian, and being around all that pasta is just plain romantic to me. Never mind that there’s no stove in my apartment that I could actually cook it with.)
