L'Agence's Favorite Date Night Spots

L'Agence's Favorite Date Night Spots

Every woman has that pair of jeans that makes her feel the most like herself, and for good reason: Denim has long been the go–to for achieving effortlessly cool style. And while we love our skinnies and boyfriend jeans, each season brings new denim trends that are just begging to be taken for a spin. Here, we're showing you how to style the of–the–moment silhouettes from AG, L'Agence and J Brand. Discover more in our Denim Report.

Whether you're celebrating a milestone anniversary or meeting someone for the first time, there's a spot for every kind of date, and no one does date night quite like L'Agence. Not only are the brand's tops, dresses and jeans the fast–track to French girl style—aka, exactly what you want to wear to impress someone—but Tara Rudes of L'Agence seems to know all the best restaurants. Below, Tara shares her go–to date night spots in NYC and LA, plus a foolproof outfit to wear to each.

Zuma, 261 Madison Ave., New York City
"Zuma is my husband, Steven, and my local neighborhood spot. We walk over for a great bottle of sake and the signature tasting menu—it's amazing!"


Le Bilboquet, 20 East 60th St., New York City
"Le Bilboquet is our Tuesday night spot. The Cajun chicken and fries are perfection, the crowd is always chic and the lighting is of course always sexy."


Hillstone, 153 East 53rd St., New York City
"Hillstone Mondays have been a tradition since Steven and I started dating. They have spinach and artichoke dip on the menu—need I say more?"


Cipriani Downtown, 376 West Broadway, New York City
Cipriani Downtown is our usual Sunday afternoon spot. We're always consistent with our order: Veal Milanese and saffron rice. It's a see–and–be–seen fashion spot, so you always feel alive."


Il Pastaio, 400 North Canon Dr., Beverly Hills
"Il Pastaio is our first meal in L.A. Go for a plate of truffle pasta and a bottle of rosé."
