The Golden Bull is a steakhouse off PCH in Santa Monica that’s been open on and off for almost 70 years. And things haven’t changed all that much since the start - you can sit in big leather booths and eat things like prime rib, Yorkshire pudding, and creamed spinach. On weekends they have a meat-filled brunch, with $3 mimosas and dishes like rib eye hash and steak and eggs.
