Open since 1919, this classic restaurant was long the bastion of Hollywood industry power-dining. The menu promises steaks, chops and old-school sandwiches such as Welsh rarebit and corned beef. The menu is a la carte, so don't forget the sides, like broccoli with rich bearnaise sauce and 11 varieties of potato dishes. Ask for a seat at the counter, and have a martini, it's one of the best places in town for those eating alone.
