If you have yet to visit Baltaire steakhouse then you just may be missing out on a premier steakhouse experience. Opened in March of 2015, Baltaire took the Los Angeles area by storm. Tucked away in Brentwood, the steakhouse has been labeled by patrons as a “hidden gem” and it’s easy to see why.
Baltaire’s Executive Chef, Travis Strickland, continues to shake up the Los Angeles dining scene by putting his own spin on a traditional steakhouse. Chef Strickland’s carefully curated, contemporary menu is a direct reflection of his previous experience with locally grown, fresh ingredients. When creating the menu he stated that his main priority was to “strike a balance between elegant and approachable dishes our neighborhood guests and visitors would crave and enjoy every day.”
The highlights of the menu are the A5 Japanese Wagyu, bone-in filet, Porterhouse, and 35-day, Dry-Aged Côte de Boeuf for two. The steak tartare comes highly recommended in addition to the lobster macaroni and cheese and fresh beignets for dessert.
In addition to your table-side service including mouth watering choices of global and domestic cheeses, there’s a cocktail menu that will have you ordering up an adult beverage, or three. The cocktail ingredients include the likes of fresh produce and house made syrups that are sure to make your favorite cocktail that much more delicious.
Baltaire presents a seductive and inviting 68-seat dining room with brass-foot chairs that overlook a glass enclosed kitchen gives patrons a peak into the food preparation process. With a modern and stylish setting, the expansive restaurant’s airy dining room, fireside lounge, and sprawling outdoor terrace makes it the ideal dining destination for a variety of occasions.
