AB Steak by Chef Akira Back
This fancy KBBQ spot/steakhouse sits on the ground floor of the Beverly Center, right next to the valet entrance on Third Street. With giant booths and gleaming golden chandeliers, AB Steak has all the glamor of a ballroom on the Vegas Strip. Expect smokeless grill tables where a friendly server cooks your meat to perfection before slicing it tableside and a cocktail topped with a smoke bubble that pops when you touch the rim of your glass. The steak, as you might guess, is pricey and of incredible quality. A good portion is aged in-house (and displayed in a window visible from the entrance), plus they offer everything from ribeye and sirloin to wagyu brisket and prime boneless short rib. All meat orders come with a spread of housemade banchans, but we suggest getting the spicy kimchi fried rice or japchae to round out your meal. Though you can find similar luxury KBBQ experiences in Koreatown, come here for a glitzy meal with people who love top-shelf meat, or for an intimate dining experience with someone who appreciates being doted on by a personal chef.
