The white tablecloths and high-backed cream-colored banquettes found at Shilo’s Kosher Steakhouse, are a rarity on this stretch of strip malls, chain stores and more casual restaurants along Pico Boulevard in the Pico-Robertson neighborhood. This high-end kosher eatery has made its name by combining a steakhouse menu with religious dietary laws and refuses to compromise on either end. There are salads, seafood entrées and pastas here to sample, but the stars of the show are the steak cuts, each wet-aged in house for three to four weeks and backed by one of Shiloh’s steak sauces. Those looking for quality at a lower price would do well to check out Shiloh’s Kobe Burger, coupled with the New York Onion Rings.

In Gaucho Grill's kitchen, juicy steaks and marinated poultry sizzle on grills, sending the rich aroma of Argentine cuisine drifting through the restaurant's rustic interior. Savory mushrooms and veggies garnish meats on intimate lamp-lit tables surrounded by knotty timber walls, rough slate arches, and lariat-hurling ranchers. Dulcet treats of flan, mousse, and crepes cap South American feasts with notes of sweetness, and glasses of fruit-packed Argentine wines tastefully complement choice selections from the grill.

Fusion steakhouse Kravings channels Brazilian rodizio-style cooking with an unlimited supply of fire-roasted meat served tableside. Order the rodizio special and display nondiscriminatory nibbling practices on up to 12 premium meat cuts, such as steaks, chicken, pork, and seafood, presented on giant skewers or cedar planks and carved at the table ($16.95 for lunch, $37.95–$39.95 for dinner). Unlimited helpings of flame-licked meats—including tequila-lime chicken, leg of lamb, and filet mignon wrapped in bacon—test stomach storage space, and à la carte dinner entrees, such as lamb chops seasoned with mint-chardonnay sauce ($33.95), set a finite finish on jaw calisthenics. All rodizio specials come with a side and salad buffet that purveys more than 30 mammal-free and seasonal options, including soups, salads, sushi, and smoked salmon.

Dark wood interiors and pleasant music from the centerpiece pianist surround eaters at Buggy Whip's comfy surf-and-turf dining den. The extensive menu offers a host of nourishments. Start by diving for fruits of the sea like the fresh oysters ($12.95 for eight) or smoked salmon ($12.95) before departing on a more filling journey by sailing a canoe of roast beef through a tasty rivulet of au jus ($29.95–$36.95). Buggy Whip's famous Green Goddess dressing adds a divine touch to their crisp salads, which sidekick giant entrée platters, such as the apple sauce-adorned jumbo pork chops ($26.95) and gargantuan slab of the juicy 20- to 22-ounce Delmonico bone-in sirloin steak ($29.95). Nautical tongue travelers can survey Davy Jones's meat locker for marine meals like the Alaska halibut ($26.95) or the scampi butter-soaked, sautéed calamari steak ($21.95).
