OK, so I have this conversation with my friends, boyfriend, and sister almost EVERY weekend. Whenever we want to go out for dinner, we always have this problem of finding somewhere lowkey to go. What I mean by this, is that we want to go to a new LIT restaurant where we don't have to wear heels or put on pounds of makeup. We want a lowkey night where we can wear Adidas and a T-Shirt and be basic.
I am positive that my group of friends aren't the only ones... I mean, we all usually end up just going to the closest retaurant we can find or one we call the "go to", but it gets pretty lame after awhile. So, to help us all out I have composed this list of A1 Restaurants that are LOWKEY AF. You can legit wear whatever you want and take a sick picture next to graffiti, neon lights, plants, or flowery wall paper!
There is definently something on this list for everyone and for every occaison! Some are more pricey than others but I am positive that you will find the perfect one for your next Restaurant outting!
1. You'll Want To Be Seen At Kampai
For a great birthday bash dinner and a lowkey time, I suggest checking out Kampai! Their Japanese garden beer paired with superb dishes will blow you mind! It's a great place for a dinner date and also or a night out with drinks since it turns into a hip bar/club after dinner service!
2. You'll Want To Be Seen At Big in Japan
Big in Japan will legit make you feel like you are on top of the world. Not only s their food amazing, but their ambiance is A1! They have beautiful decor and I swear you will have a blast.
