With a modern and stylish setting, a menu that focuses on all-Prime beef, and tableside preparations that demonstrate the highest level of service, Baltaire redefines the traditional steakhouse. Opened in March 2015 in Los Angeles’ Brentwood neighborhood, the expansive restaurant’s airy dining room, fireside lounge, and sprawling outdoor terrace makes it the ideal dining spot for lunch or dinner. Executive Chef Travis Strickland’s upscale, yet approachable menu spotlights premium meats, complemented by a variety of dishes that celebrate the bounty of the sea and the local markets. Chef Strickland, who hails from prestigious Chicago steakhouses, has crafted a contemporary menu with exceptional meat and seafood at its foundation. Highlights include A5 Japanese Wagyu, bone-in filet, Porterhouse, and 35-day Dry- Aged Côte de Boeuf for two—all served with new takes on iconic steakhouse sides. While modern in approach, Baltaire revives certain time-honored traditions with its tableside service. Presented in French copper pans, sautéed Dover Sole is fileted and deboned in front of patrons. If Baltaire’s steak and seafood dinner entrées are too decadent for your taste buds, stop by for lunch and try Kampachi Crudo with Oro Blanco grapefruit segments, pickled Fresno chiles, and watermelon radish or the Grilled Eggplant Sandwich with pumpkin seed caponata and whipped goat cheese.
Baltaire also serves as an elegant event space for corporate meetings, award banquets, and VIP functions. The seamless indoor/outdoor atmosphere and private dining room features a white marble fireplace and glass walls displaying the restaurant’s wine collection. The 50-person space can also be divided in half for smaller parties or may deem to be the perfect space for a milestone birthday bash or romantic anniversary dinner.
Luxe Tip: The beverage program is overseen by Beverage Director and Sommelier David Vaughn, who incorporates fresh produce, housemade syrups, and infused spirits into a cocktail menu that showcases contemporary interpretations of Prohibition-era cocktails. Guests can enjoy 30 options by-the-glass and more than 450 half bottle, full bottle, and magnum options starting at $50 per bottle.
