  1. I'll second that request and add another -- Any local chops even remotely similar to the "Mutton chop" at Keen's in NYC. (Not actually a true mutton chop, but a giant, delicious mega-lamb chop.)

    1. The "French" lamb chops at Musso & Frank are among the best I've had, when ordered rare. Their ordinary lamb chops are just that.

        I agree that Musso & Frank has great lamb chops. But they taste just as good medium well. They prepare any red meat well there.

          Agreed that M&F prepares all their red meats well, but my personal prefenence is rare. I wouldn't doubt that those chops are just as tasty medium well. There's a reason its called M&F "Grill." Their lamb kidneys grilled are pretty good also.

      2. Black Sheep Bistro - Tustin ~ You might say they specialize in Lamb Chops having 9 Lamb dishes 7 of which are Lamb chops. There most requested dish:

        Four Seasons Lamb Chops - 4 large chops with 4 different sauces:

        On their regular menu:

        Spicy Lamb Harissa - 3 large California Lamb Chops with a spicy cayenne pepper/garlic sauce - $34.

        Lamb Chops Spanish Style - 3 Large chops baked with garlic, olive oil & herbs - $34.
