Steaks and martinis go together like baseball players and baseball bats, or baseball bats and baseball-bat cases. Celebrate an undying match with today's Groupon: for $22, you get $45 worth of American fare and cocktails at The Belmont Cafe, on La Cienega, north of Melrose Avenue. The Belmont Cafe slings classic American cuisine, timeless cocktails, and wines from an extensive list. It is open from 9:30 a.m. to 2 a.m. Monday–Friday and 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, with a daily happy hour.
Start with the mac 'n' cheese, made with blue crab, applewood-smoked bacon, scallions, tomatoes, smoked mozzarella, smoked gouda, and swiss cheese ($14), or try the french-onion soup with brioche croutons ($8). The steak- and burger-heavy dinner menu includes filet mignon ($34) served with crushed Yukon Gold potatoes and shitake mushrooms swimming in a kiddie pool filled with sherry, herbs, and butter. The 8 oz. Angus Reuben burger ($14), a twist on the deli favorite, comes enveloped in melted swiss, thousand-island dressing, and crisp sauerkraut. Cushy leather chairs, a sleek, minimalist décor, and a candlelit interior provide an appropriate backdrop for sipping dirty martinis, while the patio allows patrons to admire clouds, stars, and floating cities.
- Go early” for a spot in the “awesome outdoor area” of this WeHo resto-lounge that offers half-off apps and drinks 4–7 PM, “spot-on music” and “sassy” staffers – Zagat
- We had the Mac & Cheese - best I ever had. I had some friends in town, staying in Hollywood, and had heard The Belmont was the place to go on Sunday nights. We had a blast! The vibe was great! Staff very friendly. The crowd seems very down-to-earth, non-hollywood - I would definitely recommend this spot. – sweetpeace04, Citysearch
