2. Lawry’s

While you may think of this Beverly Hills classic for its signature prime rib dinner, the 80-plus-year-old establishment has recently launched some serious steak offerings. They’ve beefed up their menu, adding nearly three dozen new items, including four steaks. 310.652.2827, lawrysonline.com

3. APL

Chef Adam Perry Lang’s reverent approach to protein carries throughout every last detail, including forging his own Damascus knives. Tearing into his behemoth pork chop, first brined and then smoked, is nothing short of a transcendental experience.
