The current pandemic has done a number on the restaurant industry all across the nation, but especially here in L.A., where at press time, both indoor and outdoor dining are prohibited. Luckily, chefs and restaurateurs have expanded their offerings to include takeout and delivery, with many fine dining destinations getting in on the action for the first time.
Even so, replicating the fine dining experience at home has been challenging—until now. Enter The Finishing Gourmet, a brand-new Restaurant at Home concept from founder and CEO Paul Abramowitz and executive chef and partner Robert Sulatycky that brings the classic steakhouse to your dining room via top-notch ingredients, creative dishes and innovative packaging. Sulatycky has an impressive résumé peppered with gigs at various Four Seasons properties and Dorchester Collection, and a long history with the world’s top international cooking competition, Bocuse d’Or.

That’s all evident in the sophisticated menu, chock-full of California produce and classic steakhouse favorites, including Alaskan king crab Louie; a selection of seasoned steaks (USDA prime dry-aged and Snake River Farms American wagyu only); grilled fresh Atlantic lobster tail; and a variety of mouthwatering sides and desserts. Food comes ready to eat—minus the steak, which needs a five-minute sear before serving—and is beautifully packaged in reusable glass and ceramic dishes that go straight from the box to the table. Instructions, gourmet finishing salt, extra-virgin olive oil and tools are included—as is a chef’s torch with creme brulee orders. So even when the meal is over, the experience can be relived again and again. Pickup and delivery available through Tock within 15 miles of the 90038 ZIP code
