No expense has been spared in Wolfgang Puck’s fancy foray into Steak Houses in LA. The decor and ambience make you feel like you are one of the Hollywood elite, and the food, as well as the price tag, make you feel like that too. The steaks are all outstandingly prepared, as are the sides, and they have a great selection of Kobe steak, both Domestic and true Japanese Wagyu.
As for the regular steaks, they are very well prepared, but also quite expensive (around $60 – $70) and to be honest, I thought they were not as flavorful as those at Mastro’s, which is somewhat cheaper and just as nice of a restaurant, though in more of an old-fashioned way.
The Japanese Wagyu Kobe steak was something to behold. I have only had true Kobe a couple of times, and this showed me why people that have the money are willing to fork it out for this delicacy. They steak was so intensely marbled, that when it was cooked to a medium-rare, it had the texture of butter, and a wonderful, fatty, beef flavor. Our table of four shared one good-sized steak, which costed us about $200.
Overall, while this is maybe not the VERY best steak in LA, it is the perfect place to go for an excellent steak, impeccable service, and a modern-chic fancy experience. And you might, as we did, even get the chance to meet Wolfgang!
