Whether you want yours blood rare or barely pink inside, lean and mean or marbled and juicy, there's a steakhouse in Los Angeles that's just waiting to slice you up a just-right piece of meat.
For despite L.A.'s reputation for being the place where skinny actors only eat vegan diets, the steakhouse is a mainstay of Southern California. Perhaps it's all the scientists and engineers that also make up the vibrant landscape of Los Angeles (it really isn't just about Hollywood here) or perhaps it's also those famous actors and musicians that populate the town, for they certainly draw the paparazzi outside of a number of the most popular steakhouses.
Perennial hotspots like Boa Steakhouse, Wolfgang Puck's CUT and Mastro's Steak House are constantly hosting famous faces from every walk of life, while venerable classics like Lawry's The Prime Rib actually holds the Beef Bowl every year, offering a meat-eating extravaganza to the two Rose Bowl college football teams in the days before the game. As of 2014, that steak party has happened for 59 years running!
Newcomers regularly join the steakhouse ranks, too, for Southern California is a very big place and can support many top-notch places specializing in beef. Which means this list of the 10 Best Steakhouses in Los Angeles includes both classic and cutting-edge places, all with one thing in common: their steaks are delicious.
