Ease into dinner with the smoked-salmon quesadillas ($10) or a jumbo-shrimp cocktail served with spicy diablo sauce ($14). Signature steaks include everything from 12-ounce marbled rib eye ($29) to the lighter 10-ounce filets ($29) for those who accidentally already ate. There are also fish, chicken, lamb, and vegetarian options (from $16). Supplement your protein-packed dishes with sides, including Porterhouse’s infamous fries ($9), broccoli ($6), mushrooms ($9), or grilled onions ($5); or have another steak laid neatly atop your first. You’ll also find a well-edited list of affordable wines priced by the glass and bottle.
Porterhouse has dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows, soft lighting, and spacious booths that give the well-rated butcher finishing shop a raw dose of sophistication. Get this Groupon to appease meat-loving companions or as a smart and sophisticated date pick.
In addition to a positive review from Gayot, Porterhouse Bistro has a 3.5 star average from more than 200 Yelpers and 4.5 stars on Citysearch, where it tied for Best French Fries in LA in 2008. > * Served sizzling on a 500-degree platter, the meat continues to cook for a minute or two after it reaches your table. Sides may include sautéed mushrooms, garlic mashed potatoes or sliced tomato and onions. Save room for the chocolate lava cake, even if it means leaving steak on your plate. You’ll be happy to have the leftovers anyway. – Gayot
