It's not a popular dish, but one of my favorites: lamb. I'm looking for a place to have good lamb. I'm thinking of more of a lamb shank than chops, but I'll take good food any way I can get it. I live in Simi Valley, but would be interested in places within a reasonable distance.
Carnival on Woodman near Ventura in Sherman Oaks has a lamb shank special every Tuesday night, really good.
This is far from you, but I really like the lamb burger at Alcove in Los Feliz. It's on the west side of Hillhurst Blvd, just north of Franklin Ave, and has a lovely outdoor patio.
Fugo de chao...as many succulent chops and slices from shank as you like...salted and peppered on outside,,,forget the salad bar, go selective on the beef and enjoy some incredibly juicy and flavorful lamb until you can eat no more...about 50 bux pp
Max Restaurant in Sherman Oaks has a new menu item, a horseradish encrusted Colorado lamb loin that, when served rare/medium rare, is phenomenal. Had it Monday night. What a treat, and this compliment comes from someone that cooks lamb regularly at home, namely me!
And they now have a trio of tartares that can be shared by two. They are the ahi/mango/avocado one that has been on the menu for a while, plus the smoked salmon version as well as the himachi version, all for around $12, split for two. Sure gives new meaning to the term tartare.
