Nick & Stef's Steakhouse Restaurant Review

: Superchef-restaurateur Joachim Splichal's connection to downtown L.A. dates back to the 1980s, when he was executive chef of Seventh Street Bistro. He eventually returned to the area to open this sleek steakhouse in 1999 and later moved his flagship Patina to the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Nick & Stef's Steakhouse is named after his twin boys. For starters, we particularly like the spicy grilled barbecued shrimp cocktail and a Caesar salad prepared tableside, even for one. The dry-aged steaks, like the New York strip or bone-in filet mignon, are consistently well cooked and seasoned; while they require no embellishment, consider one of the sauces --- anything from a classic béarnaise to a blue cheese sauce that also pairs well with the kitchen's addictive garlic fries. Nick & Stef's offers a wine list deep in full-bodied reds, and for dessert, there's liquid chocolate brownie cake. The bar is a lively happy hour destination and the dining room a top choice for pre-theater meals.
