It’s true! These restos serve up delicious fare for both you and your furry companion.

BBCM
After a morning run with your furry friend, take a seat on the outdoor patio of this flavorful resto. Breakfast can be anything from poached eggs and sautéed potatoes to chia pudding with banana and toasted almonds. No need to leave wagging tails behind for lunch, either. Fresh, seasonal salads are sourced from local farmers, and dinner specialties include a galette of beef short rib with cherries, arugula and Boursin. 8653 W. Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, 310.360.6900

Lazy Dog Restaurants
Executive chef Gabriel Caliendo is far from lazy, despite his eatery’s name. In the kitchen, he preps savory dishes from locally sourced ingredients that burst with flavor. Try the seasonal Grizzly Fries topped with a housemade secret sauce, crispy bacon, sweety drop peppers and smoked paprika. At Lazy Dog, your pet is welcome on the outdoor patio and can even enjoy a grilled hamburger patty from the specially-catered doggy menu! 3525 W. Carson St., Torrance, 310.921.6080

Nelson's
This eco-friendly bar at Terranea Resort—complete with a countertop made from recycled wine bottles—is the perfect pet stop. Step out on the patio for stellar ocean views, warming up around the fire pit or for splitting a burger with your pooch. Other menu favorites include the mahi-mahi tacos, fish and chips, and a crispy side of sweet potato fries. While your furry friend laps up cold water, sip a glass of buttery Napa Valley Chardonnay. 100 Terranea Way, Rancho Palos Verdes, 310.265.2836

The Ponte
Expect a modern twist on classic Italian cuisine at Scott Conant's pooch-friendly restaurant complete with greenery and a 50-year-old tree serving as the centerpiece.  Although there isn’t a doggy menu, executive chef Freddy Vargas and Conant’s serve up soulful favorites like famed pasta al pomodoro, wood-roasted prawns and seasonal mushroom boscaiola. For a superb combination, top things off with a cocktail from Ryan Wainwright’s award-winning Negroni Flight. 8265 Beverly Blvd., Beverly Grove, 323.746.5130
