DAN TANA'S - STILL GREAT BUT EXPENSIVE

Thor123 Jan 10, 2014 09:44 AM

Was back at DT's last evening for the first time in a few months. Had the steak and peppers which was great. Also, had the steamed clams for the first time and really liked them a lot. Have to admit that the prices are really getting up there though. The steak and peppers was $53 and the clam app was $18. Its still a blast, but its getting to the point where price wise its becoming more of a special occasion place than regular rotation.

PS: Was hoping that Kevin would be there, but he was not to be found!

    "DAN TANA'S - STILL...EXPENSIVE"

    This portion of your title conjures up headlines such as "Sun still first appearing in East in the morning" (g)

      It always been expensive, but now even more so. A few years ago, I would say it was in the range of any number of higher end restaurants. Now it is really high. Polo Lounge territory.

        It just seems like it has maintained its "price point gap" over most other places (especially when you consider LA Italian food as a whole -hole?-) as far as I can determine. And drinking (why else would you be here?) can really send that old check total soaring...

          15 dolla well martinis. Simple not fancy, I repeat, not fancy house salads for 15 bucks.

          But if you actual sitt at the bar and I'm going to hate myself for giving out this secret but at the bar you can order half order of the entrees at half price. But then again if you are firmly esconced at the bar you'll probably be drinking like Bukowski on one of his despondently egregiously horrible days. :)

        This is news....?

        Seriously, beef, fish & shellfish are all getting more expensive..... And then there's the inflation we're experiencing......

          I am a fan, but the prices are noticeably higher than Mastros, so I thought it worth noting.

            when a fucking french dip costs 22 bucks at south beverly grill and burgers routinely approach 20 bucks a pop i don't find it out of control...but noted thor it has gotten jacked up pretty good there...at least you get a side of pasta with the steak and peppers...

                i like it to but usually ask for the fettucine alfredo which they sub in no extra charge (used to be listed as an option i think when i first started going)...the alfredo goes nice with the steak or the veal karl malden

                      I can't imagine a world without Dan Tana's…expensive or not.
                      This city needs to hang on to the great, old ones.
                      Like San Francisco does.
                      As long as the portions continue with the status quo there are enough of us out there who aren't looking at the prices that inevitably will rise.

              I guess I'm missing out but I've never had a steak at Dan Tana's - usually go for the nothing to write home about but tasty Italian-American fare (but who really cares when you're into your xth Ketel+soda?).

              At those prices, I'd hope the beef was prime/dry aged. Is this the case?

                  I do like the old style parmigiana with the tasty though not gourmet tomato sauce and the chewy mozzarella. Yes. It's Americanized Ittalian to a tee but I like it just so when downing a few rounds at the bar, natch. Always the bar these days.

                  It is te antithesis of Angelini Osteria, Madeo, Giorgio, Valentino, et al.

                    The Ny steaks ie the Dabney Coleman and Helen steaks are Prime 100% and they are great. And can one up any steak in town though I haven't been to Mastros just yet.

                    The Dabney Coleman steak is the beat anywhere in town.

                    S Irene once noted that it was so tender that maybe a bevy or phalanx or
                    Coterie of Heidi Fleiss resident hookers massaged it beyond tender.

                    Caveat Emptor; be careful around the regulars they bite. :)

Is it something you just have to experience to get? cause based on what i see, i don't get it at all. The food looks terrible and wouldn't pay half the prices they charge to eat here.

                                        even at 63 this isn't that out of line with other top steakhouses in LA, esp considering it comes with pasta side. im guessing they make their money on the liquor not the beef (thanks kevin and thor!)

                                                      and plenty of good dishes that are much cheaper.

                                      Tailback, this is one place where many would say the dishes would look terrible and or hate the vibe. This one time when I completelt get others viewpoints.

                                      This is not a chowhound joint Except for the Dabney Coleman steak.

                                      You are absolutely correct.

                                      Now if someone said they didn't like Shunjis (coming from a person that does in fact love raw fish) then we would have to get into an old fashioned antediluvian colonel sanders five paces style duel.

                                        I went a year or so ago and I thought it was among the worst food I had every experienced in an upscale restaurant and I recall the wines by the glass list was beyond mediocre. At this point, I can't even remember what we ordered, but I do recall being astonished by how mediocre it all was.

                                        Great scene though and great people watching.

                                            Going in with the expectation that DT's is "upscale" was a mistake. The place may have upscale prices but that's pretty much it.

                                            It's a convivial, fun place to drink and then drunkenly eat mediocre food.

                                            I like it but am by no means a regular. It also helps that, the majority of the time I'm there, someone else is paying.

                                            Go ahead and drop some names - who have you seen there, then ?

                                                        Clint must be a semi regular, as I saw him there as well. Had to do a double take, as I first ID'd him as just some old guy in a windbreaker with his pants pulled up too high.

                                                        My favorites though are the "weren't you that guy in that thing" type of sighting, which DT's and pretty much all of LA is great for.

                                                  The food is expensive, and the quality I'm afraid is inconsistent, but I love the place. On a good night, few things make me happier than their caesar salad, garlic cheese bread, mozzarella marinara, veal piccata, or veal parmesan. I guess I'm in the minority, but I even like their side of pasta--they make a delicious meat sauce.

                                                  In all the years I've been going, I've never tried their steak. I'll have to rectify that soon!

                                                    Tastes obviously vary. Mozzarella marinara was one of the dishes we ordered because the person I was with said it was amazing.

                                                    I was astonished how mediocre it was. It reminded me of the kind of dish you might find at a chain restaurant in the 'burbs, as did the pasta and the wine by the glass list. (Can't speak to the full wine list because I didn't look at wines by the bottle).

                                                      Agree with their wine offerings, especially by the glass--not a great selection. Plus I don't think they store them carefully. Sometimes the reds are too warm, as if they had been next to a stove or oven.

                                                        2 Caesar salads
                                                        1 fettuccine Alfredo with chicken
                                                        1 eggplant parm
                                                        A (cheapish) bottle of red, plus another glass
                                                        Coffee
                                                        1 dessert

                                                        $190 with tip. Sat by the bar, so people (cougar) watching was included in the price. Love Dan Tanas. But the eggplant parm was pretty meh.

                                                            Just yesterday, a great family friend was over saying she wanted all of us to go to Dan Tana's (as soon as we all saved enough money!) Our friend's mother was a Hollywood starlet (we've seen the movies!) and our friend said that there is a "Steak Helen" that was named after her mother!

                                                            Sure enough, there IS indeed a Steak Helen, as many of you know. Anyone know if it was named for Helen Gilbert? From what I can see, it's a 12-oz. NY steak (yes?) Very pricey, we know. Any thoughts?

Try a gin and tonic with 50% gin...it's dreadful and virtually undrinkable. Same goes with wine with too much alcohol (16%+)...especially served too warm.

                                                                          Most people complain about watered down, weak drinks which is a more common problem. Or, even worse IMHO, the new trend of high end mixologist drinks which are consumed in three or four sips...for $15+.
