As a proud member of the 48oz. Club, I was VERY disappointed to see that Shula's 347 in LA does not offer the Porterhouse. Hell, the largest menu item is a 22oz. This came as a shock to me and was a MAJOR letdown. Now, most people would say that 22 oz is more than enough for a dinner, but as a bigtime carnivore, anything less than 32 oz. simply is not worth it. My waiter was kind enough to coax the chef into ""going downstairs"" to find a porterhouse for me- what looked like 36 oz. and cooked it to perfection. See, Shula's does everything right. Their cuts of beef are fantastic, the service is strong and the ambience is not too pretentious and masculine enough. The sides are classic and served to share. My dining partner had the 16 oz. NY which looked very good- he finished it all which is a testament to the piece of meat. My Porterhouse was good/borderline great. Wine list compliments the menu well. The whole ""hotel restaurant"" vibe is kind of weak, but I guess thats the price you pay to get the Shula name out across the country. I'll be back.
Pros: Shula Cut, Service, Valet Validation
Cons: Limited Menu
