MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Intimate and striking, with an air of exclusivity, this destination-worthy restaurant drips with old-school Hollywood charm. The main dining room, adorned with sultry green walls, a limestone fireplace and dramatic chandeliers, is straight throwback glamour, matched by the seemingly effortless poise of the sharply dressed service team.

The kitchen team excels at preparing modern takes on classic American cuisine, which gets an extra boost from the restaurant's relationship with SMIP Ranch—their private farm. Dishes are well executed; and while many may resemble familiar steakhouse signatures, they are noticeably elevated here.

Your dinner may begin with a fresh-baked Gruyère popover, before moving on to an elegant take on vichyssoise, or a surprisingly artistic wedge salad. Steaks are cooked to rosy perfection—from the butcher’s cut and Delmonico to filet mignon and ribeye; while chicken Parmigiana and Maine lobster vol-au-vent are as warming as they come.

Desserts, too, offer a refined take on nostalgic favorites. Standouts have included a slab of midnight chocolate cake as well as enticingly crisp and old-fashioned crullers, dusted with cinnamon sugar.
