Dear John's Restaurant Review

: Chefs Josiah Citrin (Mélisse) and Hans Röckenwagner (Röckenwagner Bakery) teamed up to revive Frank Sinatra’s iconic Culver City hangout. (It was briefly renamed Lucky’s.) The nostalgic vintage steakhouse setting remains, and the two chefs updated classic dishes including avocado crab Louie, oysters Rockefeller, a 20 oz. rib-eye, Prime NY Strip, Dover sole and lobster Thermidor. Look for cocktails to match.
