He wants steak, we want seafood.....

Looking for a good restaurant where our son can have his steak and we can have seafood (crab cakes, fish, maybe a lobster tail) in Bev. Hills or adjacent neighborhoods. It's a holiday dinner with Grandma and ancient Aunt. Is there such a thing as sedate AND festive?

It's for tonight, of course. Any input greatly appreciated.

  1. Nearly every steakhouse offers fish, lobster and crab cakes.
    Think about Cut (if you have the $), Morton's, The Palm, Musso & Frank, Ocean Ave., or Jar.

    1. Mastro's or Cut in BH

      1. Chaya - Beverly Hills (adjacent really).

        It has a Rib-Eye or Filet Mignon for your young carnivore, fish, lobster tail, comfortable seating for those not so young-ens, festive enough for all ages, & although they don't list crab crakes they do have a soft shell crab item. Anyways, a nice departure from the usual steakhouse chain experience:

            Agree with Mastro's - that's us and our son you're talking about.

          2. GRACE



            I would really go to GRACE.

            At GRACE, you can get amazing meats of all kinds...steaks, wild boar, venison, pork belly.
            You can also enjoy fish that is very high quality and presented beautifully with amazing goodies on the plate.

            I LOVE their sea urchin and rock shrimp risotto and the way they do scallops really knocks my socks off!
            The wine list is spectacular along with the room and the's a grown up enough place without being stuffy but I would not say that it's "sedate"...the room has got a lively, respectable buss to it without being over noisy like some of the new places get complaints for recently.
