This week is restaurant week in LA, which means you can eat some pretty good food without having to pawn your rare car parts.  It also means I finally had a chance to try Lawry’s prime rib in Beverly Hills. I have to say it was everything I expected, and a little off the wall too.  No complaints about the food, other than I wish it could have stayed warmer longer, but that was down to two things.  The large slice of prime rib, and the fact I was eating slowly to really enjoy each bite. I really liked the little bottles of Lawry’s seasoned salt and pepper that looked like they were pulled straight off the grocery store shelf. They seemed a little out of place in such an old school classy restaurant with about $2,000,000 worth of fancy cars in the front valet area alone.

A few other cool surprises were the strange WWII nurse style uniforms the waitresses were wearing, the fresh potato chip and meatball bar in the waiting area, and those crazy airstream looking stainless steel carts they wheel the prime rib around on.  Those were pretty cool.  I was hoping to get a look inside it, but my seat didn’t give me any view of the rib cutting action. 😦 But other than that, it was delicious! I’ll definitely be back again one day.

Besides, they’re polarized, and have a striped mini detail on the inner frame.  How awesome is that?
