Wolfgang's Steakhouse (NYC) coming to Beverly Hills?

Just because there weren't enough steak houses in L.A....

According to LA Magazine, they are taking over the long-abandoned Umenohana space on Canon. Can anyone confirm?

      So, I take it you like the place? I have a birthday coming up and I don't get all that many chances to have a great steak (with a baby and a wife that would rather eat other things), so I have to make this one count. Do you recommend the place and more importantly, do you recommend it over other steak houses in L.A.? I'd love to hear from anyone w/ an opinion out there!

          Absolutely, I was there for the grand opening so my review is quite biased. The steak is NY style with a great charred crust, and because of the dry aging the flavor of the beef is very moist. Order the bacon, creamed spinach, german potatoes, and cheesecake and schlag for dessert. Probably not the best place to take kids, as its a hollywood power scene in there. The prices for the wine are high, but I think they are about right for a great steakhouse. Enjoy!!

        2. Still open and packed packed packed. Was there last night for an early dinner (6:30pm) and the porterhouse was just as great as it was in NYC. I would dare to say it's equal to Lugar.

            Dinner was fabulous! Split the "Wolfgang" salad. ..2 for four, Salad included the great bacon. Followed by Porterhouse for 3 ( for 4). Best steak I have ever had in Los Angeles. Perfect!! The German potatoes were great. Shared one pecan pie with shlagg. Divine. Dinner check was about 100.00 PP. Ordered wine by the glass. I LOVE this restaurant and thank Chowhound for turning me on to it. BTW, they may serve the best martini in town, Service was top notch,
