New to the City of Angels, STK has quickly become the latest celebrity hangout and a fixture for papparazi who are guaranteed to capture that money shot. Definitely “not your Daddy’s steakhouse,” the New York transplant serves up quite a dish in a classy and sophisticated yet hip scene. No wonder just about every celebrity in town has hit this place since it’s conception and keep coming back for more. On any given night, star seekers can find David and Victoria Beckham, Eva Longoria, and Kate Beckinsale eating– yes, eating, despite their perfect 10 figures.

The restaurant has three interconnected areas where guests can socialize and wine and dine– the Banquet Room, the Atrium, and the Bistro Room. Diners can enjoy a live social scene in the 120-seat Banquet Room, or go for a more intimate setting in the 50-seat Bistro Room which includes semi-private elevator access, a bar, and restroom. Afterwards, they can move on to the Atrium lounge where a DJ spins on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights.


The Bistro Room

Steak lovers can choose from Small, Medium, or Large portions such as a 6-ounce Filet Medallion from the Small selection ($24), a 16-ounce New York from the Medium ($42), or a 24-ounce Porterhouse from the Large ($59), which are served with their signature sauces that includes Toasted Peppercorn, Lemon Mustard, and Herb BĂ©arnaise. You may already be too full, but if you’re not try their side dishes– the Roasted Garlic Heirloom Potatoes ($8) or Parmesan Truffle Fries ($8).

Not in the mood for steak, no problem! They still offer salads, seafood, and other non-meat entrees such as Organic Roasted Half Chicken with Tumeric, Baby Carrots, and Chives ($24); appetizer of Shrimp Rice Krispies with Tiger Prawns, Shrimp Bisque, and Cilantro ($15); and Jumbo Lump Crab Salad with Green Melon, Avocado, Mache Greens, and Kaffir Lime ($17).


Jumbo Crab Salad

Enjoy a delicious glass of wine or two from their selection of more than 100 creations such as their signature Not Your Daddy’s Manhattan with Woodford Reserve Bourbon, Liquor 43, sweet and dry vermouth ($15), or have the Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler with rhubarb infused Finlandia Vodka, muddled fresh strawberries, and a graham cracker crusted rim ($16).

Our Recommendation: The 24-ounce Porterhouse Steak; Parmesan Truffle Fries with Peppercorn Sauce; Banana Nut Bread

STK, 755 N. La Cienega Blvd., West Hollywood, CA 90069 / 310.659.3535 /
