Skirt Steak for Lunch?

Where do you go for skirt steak at lunchtime?

I think skirt steak – esp. at a steakhouse – is the perfect choice for a lunchtime meal. It’s not so hefty and rich like a porterhouse or a ribeye that it’ll weigh you down or make you look like a total glutton in the middle of the day. But it’s still red meat – and a mighty fine tasty cut of red meat. To me, it’s the perfect cure for the midday red meat blues.

And today I had those blues. So it was off to Carlito’s Gardel (which, by the way, does not get enough love on these boards). With their great $24 3-course prix-fix menu, not only did I get a damn good slab of skirt steak, but I also ended the meal with a dulce de leche ice cream.

I think Nick & Stef’s also does a fine skirt steak for lunch, which goes perfectly with the German potato salad.

I know Malbec also has a skirt steak on the menu, but never have tried it for lunch.

So, where do you go for skirt steak, esp. during lunchtime?

    1. I see that Meet in Culver City has skirt steak on their dinner menu for $19.95. I might just give it a try, now that you've mentioned it. Very flavorful if cooked and sliced right. Hanger steak for lunch at $12.95. They might do a skirt steak for lunch if you asked.

      1. El Gaucho #2 in Anaheim. Sandwich de entraña. $6.50.

              what about the London broil at Taylor's would that consitute a skirt steak?

              It's really tasty.
