Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Baby calamari salad
$$$, Modern, American, Steakhouse, Outdoor Seating, Beverly Grove
"When in season, Suzanne does this delicately grilled baby squid with lightly dressed greens, a simple and delicious dish. Be sure to follow up with a beautifully charred steak and some Béarnaise sauce. I love this place."
Chopped sirloin
$$$, Modern, American, Steakhouse, Outdoor Seating, Beverly Grove
"Whenever I eat at the bar here, I find it hard not to order the thick, juicy mound of chopped sirloin topped with a sunny-side egg and served with a green peppercorn sauce. The coarse meat, the runny egg and the luscious sauce mingle in one delicious bite after another. A thick slab of sourdough brings it all together."
Soft-shell crab
$$$, Modern, American, Steakhouse, Outdoor Seating, Beverly Grove
"Soft-shell crab season is finally here! 👏👏👏 Try ours, lightly dusted with semolina flour and served with a spicy mustard butter on the side. And, of course, a cocktail! 🍸 🦀 😊 Photo by @annefishbein . . . #TheJar"
