Lawry's Prime Rib in Beverly Hills used to be the only location where you can get their famous and delicious prime ribs, but now they have locations in Las Vegas, Chicago and Dallas. Their prime rib is the best, but you can also get seafood now for the people in your party who does not want beef. The dinner usually starts with the salad, spinning in a big bowl on a tray of ice. The waitress pours the Lawry's French dressing from as high as she can reach, while spinning the salad. The salad is ice crispy lettuce with shreds of beets. The prime rib comes in several different cuts, the California cut is the smallest, one thick 6 oz piece; the English cut is usually 3 thin pieces at 7.5 oz; the Lawry's cut is a big piece at 10 oz and the Diamond Jim cut is a BIG piece at 16 oz, usually with some bone attached. The rib chef and his silver domed cart comes to your table, and you get the cut and doneness you want right there. You can put 2 different kinds of (mild, strong) horse redishes on the prime rib. You get mashed potatoes with your order, or you can pay a few dollars extra for the baked potato. Either is good, but I like the baked potatoes with everything on it, sour cream, chives, bacon bits and butter. No need to count calories if you are eating here, don't eat so much for the next day or so to compensate. For vegetables, you can get their creamed spinach or corn. The corn is sweet and tender, and the spinach has bacon and has salt. Then you get a piece of Yorkshire pudding bread to soak up any prime rib juice left on the plate. I did not sample any seafood dishes so can't comment on them. If you have any room left, they also have desserts, but I was so stuffed that I shared the chocolate dipped strawberries and raspberry sorbet with my husband. This is a classy restaurant with valet parking only, and we used to often see Bob Hope there for dinner. The dinner plus dessert without wine would be around $40 per person before tipping, which I figure is only average considering it's in Beverly Hills.
