Eater LA: 25 Feast-Worthy Steakhouses in Los Angeles
There’s rarely been a better time to enjoy a steak around town
By Eater Staff
Steaks, whether grilled or broiled, grass or grain fed, are one of life’s great comforts. Los Angeles has become a hub for fantastic beef in a variety of cuts, served in settings that range from old school to positively luxurious. And while LA might not have the long legacy of steakhouses as a city like Chicago or New York (or the pedigree of Texas steak culture), the offerings in this town are as excellent as any meat-eater can find.
Better still, like any good steakhouse the spots on this list do more than just grill and serve. There are fantastic cocktails to be had, awesome sides of pasta, and plenty more to enjoy — including at least one steak-focused tasting menu from a celebrity chef. Like any other city, steakhouses are always going to be the go-to option for an elevated dining experience that’ll please a crowd, even non meat-eaters. Here now, 25 of the most indulgent steakhouses anywhere in Los Angeles.
#4 Damon’s Steak House
Glendale’s famous Damon’s is a tiki-leaning star. The place has been doing its thing since 1937 and still draws crowds of longtimers and youngsters all at once, mostly for the tropical booze but also the massive 20-ounce prime rib and hefty t-bone steaks.
317 N Brand Blvd
#8 Bourbon Steak
Michael Mina’s steakhouse at The Americana at Brand features a marble countered café up front, dining room with sumptuous tan booths and drum-shaped lanterns, and live piano music. Considering each meal comes with complimentary duck fat fries and a trio of dipping sauces, expectations start high. Bourbon Steak keeps sauces simple, with classics like green peppercorn and Bearnaise, but go big on accompaniments like herb-roasted bone marrow and blue cheese crust. Is that a Japanese whisky cart that just passed by? Yes it is, so order up a dram.
