  1. Highly recommend either Jar or Wolfgang's (by Wolfgang Zweiner)!

      1. Taylor's has the same quality for half the price!

          Half the price or even less. But the same quality? No way, (and I love Taylor's).

            I'm sorry, but I also don't think so. I like Taylor's for what it is. It's great for what it is. But it's in a whole different, lower, league from any of the other places mentioned above. For that matter, my favorite, less-expensive steak in town is at Mercado Buenos Aires on Sepulveda Blvd. in Van Nuys. Although they don't have alcohol.

        2. You will probably get lots of different opinions on this. My favorites are Arnie Morton's, Mastro's, and (while not a soley steakhouse), Grill on the Alley. I have not been to Wolfgang's, and I am looking forward to trying it from what I have heard on this board.

          1. My vote goes to Mastro's.
