Jar | West Hollywood | American, California | Restaurant
Loading...
Any place in town can broil an acceptable filet mignon, but Suzanne Tracht's snazzy steak house is a blast from the Mad Men '60s, chefly riffs on the strip steak and the porterhouse, the hash brown and the french fry that may or may not incorporate every last pea tendril and star-anise infusion in the Asian-fusion playbook. Some people we know have never even tried the steak here - the glorious pot roast and the various and sundry wonders of the duck-fried rice are just too compelling. But the steak is about as good as it gets. The décor is straight off the set of a Cary Grant movie. And there's always banana cream pie for dessert.
