Best Short Ribs in LA

Looking for some delicious short ribs -- succulent, but not too fatty. I'm thinking braised short ribs, but other preparations are okay too. Thanks.

  1. i just had the most amazing short ribs ....and i've had them at many, many, many places...unfortuntely, you have to drive a couple hours south to del restaurant - i just ate there on wednesday - i will be posting pics this weekend on the california board...not sure it's worth the drive....especially on a 3 day weekend...the was more like jelly...almost like the marrow a la osso was awesome !!!

    1. Nothing matches the BRASATO AL BAROLO with short ribs made by Gino Angelini at La Terza. On a bed of polenta.
      Sublime! Don't waste time flying to Piemonte, you won't find it there.

      1. I can think of four places in the south bay that serves up good braised whole short ribs. Flossie's on Yukon serves good short ribs but the service stinks! Both Bruddah's and Bob's Okazuya has decent short rib dishes but the best to me is at Happa's in the Gardena Hotel on Redondo Beach Blvd.

          On a High End Resto Lucques cannot be beat.. It is one of Suzanne Goin's specialty items. It tends to be on the menu often.. Fall off the bone tender, and very tasty. I like this dish on a cool winter night.. and yes with a bottle of Bordeaux to wash it down.

                I was very unimpressed with Luques' short ribs, which I ordered based on recommendations from this board.

                I've had excellent short ribs at Craft. Perfectly cooked, not too fatty, great flavor.

                  Ditto for Josie; love the moroccan twist.

                    Absolutely. Josie and Lucques there is no contest.
