Looking for a Great Steak or Prime Rib Dinner around Century City - Beverly Hills

My family and I will be staying at the Hyatt Century Plaza with a car. Here's the situation. It will be my birthday and I'm hankering for a juicy steak or thick slice of prime rib. My first choice would be Lawry's over in Beverly Hills, unfortunately I'm the only real meat eater in our family. My wife is ok with a smallish beef serving but prefers fish and lots of veggies with her meal and my son is strictly a fish and chicken guy. So while Lawry's appeals to me, I'm afraid the rest of my family wouldn't enjoy it as much as I would.

So I'm looking for suggestions to places that would satisfy my meat cravings while giving my family some nice options so that everyone could enjoy a nice dinner. Any place around Beverly Hills, Westwood, Century City and over to Santa Monica would be ok. Thanks for your help and advice.

  1. Check out the Grill on the Alley in B Hills (check to see if they offer their Prime Rib on the night you want to eat).

      FYI - Lawrys does offer limited veggie and seafood options.

      I'd go to CUT in Beverly Hills. Look at the pics and menu in the link. They offer a lot of different dishes beside steaks, including lamb, poussin (poultry), and seafood. Also, the appetizers, sides, and desserts are well regarded.

    2. How about Craft LA across the street from your hotel at 10100 Constellation, corner Avenue of the Stars?

        Second.
        Cut is a great suggestion as well.

      2. Thanks for the recommendations. I looked at all 3 menus and they look good, especially Grill on the Alley. The CUT suggestion also made me remember Spago, any thoughts on that?

        BTW, I knew Lawry's had some non-meat options but really wanted everyone to be satisfied with a great dinner. These choices definitely make that possible!

          Spago is always solid. Many people long for the more casual feel of the original West Hollywood location, but an equal number enjoy the dressier elegance of the BH recreation. I have rarely had a bad dish there, but I don't usually get the steak. I do often get the veal chop which is a huge hunk of meat - tho' white - and always fabulously prepared. My folks often get the Cote de Boeuf and love it.

          If the website is up-to-date here are your current meat entrees:

        2. I'm still a big fan of Mastro's Steakhouse:

          Also depending on the age of your son a place that is a little more child friendly is Wolfgang's Steakhouse (not to be confused with Wolfgang Puck's Cut). The porterhouse for 2 there is delicious.

          1. Jar does a great job with all things beef. They also offer excellent alternatives to non-red meat eaters...

              The Palm has great prime rib - I'd rate it higher than Lawry's (which I like a lot - don't get me wrong) - but they also have a variety of steaks and fish, and lobster. If you like really big lobsters - this is the place. If you've never been, it's a fun experience, and not bad if you're looking to see celebs. (older celebs however, but you never know)
