THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Charcoal Restaurant Review

: An upscale version of Gaucho Grill, Charcoal offers a variety of char-grilled dishes, burgers and more in a sophisticated setting in the heart of Hollywood. Restaurateur Adolfo Suaya (The Lodge, Gaucho Grill) put together a concept sure to appeal to Angelenos in general and those visiting the adjacent Arclight Cinemas and Amoeba Records. The large room, designed by Suaya with David Maman, has a distinctive look---plenty of wood, stone and leather, plus a dramatic chandelier of elk antlers. Meat dominates the menu, so begin with the skewers of Japanese Kobe beef, tender and flavored with teriyaki. Or sample the generous portion of burrata cheese which shares its plate with ripe cherry tomatoes and a tart balsamic vinaigrette. Burgers come in several varieties (regular beef, with or without cheese, plus crab and ahi), but opt instead for something more substantial. The generous serving of char-barbecue ribs should satisfy even a large appetite, and the pork, tender and sweet, pairs well with sugary baked beans and homemade coleslaw. Char-grilled salmon offers a nice alternative for diners who eschew beef and pork, as does the sole vegetarian entrée, the char-grilled vegetable plate. A giant funnel cake is the signature dessert, offered with berry and chocolate sauces. The full bar is well-stocked with premium spirits and some nice by-the-glass wines, and malt liquor fans will warm to the inclusion of Colt 45 and Mickey’s Big Mouth.
