Prime Rib and Steak places...

coweepooh Dec 21, 2008 07:53 AM

For as long as I can remember, my grandparents have always loved steak and prime rib...and we always end up at the same places like Lawrys, Houstons, Tam O'Shanters...the prime suspects when you think of steak or prime rib...

Can anyone suggest other places for a change this year...my grandparents are 95 but act like 65 but they still prefer places with good service, not super snobby and care a lot about how amazing the meat is and that it isnt overcooked etc.

I thought Id try to surprise them this year with a new place that will wow them but not make them feel uncomfy since they wouldnt fit into more trendy, loud music places..

They live in Brentwood, so somewhere in the Westside or Valley would be best :)

    Morton's makes a great prime rib. Friday only.

      I would definitely second the choices of Grill on the Alley, Mastro's and Cut (in ascending order of quality and even more steeply, of price). All three serve terrific steaks and have good service. Of the three however, Mastro's might be the noisiest.

        I vote for the Grill. On Sunday nights, they have Prime Rib as a special and is is really good.

        I hosted a party of 4 last week at Lawrys. In my eyes its still the best., I would think while your intention is great to seek a change of venue would be a very hard to find something better..there is no comparison in my eyes if were talking Prime Rib..

          What about Mastro's or Cut. While Cut is trendy the service is wonderful and they won't overcook your steak.

            They might like the Grill on the Alley in B Hills.

              For steak, Wolfgang's (porterhouse is the way to go here--a clone of Peter Lugar's) or Jar would be great choices. For prime rib, the Palm has the best around (but might only be available on weekends now).

              Jar Restaurant
              8225 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90048

              Palm Restaurant
              9001 Santa Monica Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90069

              Wolfgang's Steakhouse
              445 N. Canon Drive, Beverly Hills, CA 90210

                Wow you are so fortunate to be able to do this! Ninety five and looking for a wonderful place to take them for a great steak. Fantastic.
                I've thought about this awhile, imagining myself doing the same thing you're doing, and I would have to say 'Grill on the Alley' in Beverly HIlls.
                I know a man in his 80's who goes there every day for lunch.
                Have a wonderful time whatever your choice.
