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

      Another vote for the short ribs at Lucques.

          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.

        1. 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.

            1. re: avivale

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

              1. 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?

                    It's around 6th and Vermont.

                      Thanks, more convenient than originally envisioned.

                2. 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.

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