Was this place created for Hollywood power lunches? Most likely. But the good news is it also delivered a much needed high-end option in a part of Hollywood largely dominated by build-your-own-salad joints and Rite Aids. The menu is pretty wide-spread with a raw bar, a solid sandwich menu, and a hangar steak that’s not to be missed. The prices are steeper than other places in the area, but remember - you’re here to impress. And also that three-course lunch option for $25 is nothing to scoff at.
