i dont care for ambience

  1. I'll probably be flamed for both of these recs, but I like Ruth's Chris ribeye and their creamed spinach, and Houston's has a really good Hawaiian ribeye and I like their acorn squash when it's in season.

      No reason to be flamed. Ruth's Chris is awesome, chain or not.

          I second Jar. Its our favorite, particularly for the ribeye. Well marbled. I think there known for their potroast, but stick with the ribeye and purple yams.

        2. Maybe not the first place you'd think of, but the ribeye at Pane E Vino (8265 Beverly Blvd, (323) 651-4600) is really nice. (I forget who, but one of the old-timers on this board mentioned this; I gave it a try and they were/are absolutely correct.) PEV serves a very flavorful steak, cooked over hardwood, which gives it a wonderful smoky touch. Absolutely delicious. Good Italian-style sides too, but I'm not sure if they'll make you mac & cheese.

            Old-timer? Old-timer??? The body may be an old-timer, but the palate is young enough to recognize the best steak in LA -- & it is indeed a ribeye. Pane e Vino's bistecca alla Fiorentina is indeed as good as it gets.

                I too owe a lot to Mr. Grub to pointing me to Pane e Vino for their ribeye.
