Needed old school steakhouse in LA

I know Taylor's, LOVE IT. I think Pacific Dining Car is overrated (Please, let's not get into a pro vs. con PDC discussion here.) I've done Buggy Whip once and I'm on the dig. If you're feeling what I'm throwin' down, red vinyl banquettes, Eisenhower administration waitresses. Great steak, not major cash outlay, can ya gimme some tips? Please, no Cut etc. I'm talking old school. Thanks.

  1. i've never been there but I heard its pretty old school: Musso Frank's on Hollywood.

    1. Dal Rae - without a doubt:

      1. Although this previous post was not limited to steakhouses, they do list some old-school places where you can get steaks.

        1. the smoke house in burbank. crazy old-school vibe with amazing lounge acts. the food is somewhat secondary to the experience, though their cheese bread is almost as good as they claim it is.

          1. I second Musso and Frank. Raymond Chandler-esque old school.
