BOURBON STEAK Los Angeles
Built by master chef Michael Mina, BOURBON STEAK Los Angeles offers contemporary dining inside an American steakhouse. Complete with a wood-fired grill and piano bar, this restaurant is a must for any steak-lover. The menu is also complete with a shellfish cart and treat trolley – or try your taste buds with their Japanese Whiskey service. We recommend ordering their signature prime 18 oz. bone-in rib eye American angus steak. Their menu may also change with the seasons such as their summertime ‘Treasure Of The Sea’ dish.
