Short ribs????

jillcar Oct 5, 2010 09:31 AM

I would like to know the best restaurant shortribs on the westside/valley. It is a birthday request! Any suggestions??

    I've really enjoyed the short ribs main courses I had at Lucques on Melrose and at Josies on Pico in Santa Monica.

          Lucques' short ribs are excellent.

          Another option is the short rib pot roast at Weside Tavern - massive portion and quite tasty. Very tender, served on a bed of mashed potatoes and veggies.

          I love short ribs too! Two recommendations: One, the paleron of beef at Comme Ca. If it's not actual short rib, I still crave it because it has that fork tender, melt-in-your-mouth richness.

          Second, the pot roast at Jar. I haven't eaten it at the restaurant, but I have made it at home (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB12381...) and wow was it amazing.

          Happy birthday!

            That's my go-to brisket recipe for Hanukkah! Love it. I've never actually eaten it at the restaurant either.

              maybe i went on an off day but the pot roast at jar was super salty when i went last month.

                Not sure if the birthday/request is that of the OP or someone else, but next time they are a bit further east they shouldn't pass up the chance to try the galbijim (steamed/braised short ribs) at Seongbukdong. A near-religious experience. It helps to go with a very small party because 1) the place is tiny, and 2) that way you get more galbijim for yourself

                  Since I have never heard of the place, just how far east does one have to go?

                  Wolfgang Puck's Chinois on Main in Santa Monica has them on their DineLa Menu:
                  Braised short ribs with sweet sake soy glaze, potato puree, truffle oil drizzle.

                    I just remembered the short rib at Craft - THAT was delicious.
