Dal Rae Restaurant
Pico Rivera, CA 90660-3839
LA Weekly's Description
There was a time when restaurants like the Dal Rae were thick on the ground in Los Angeles, manly places with lushly upholstered booths, heroic tumblers of Scotch, and steaks as thick as the novels of Irwin Shaw. A Dal Rae meal begins with a trough-size relish tray, cherry peppers and celery stalks and cucumbers of tremendous girth, and continues with baskets of cheese toast that taste like Pepperidge Farm Goldfish transformed into oily bread. You are going to get the pepper steak â a nice hunk of shell steak, an accurate medium rare if that's the way you want it, crusted with cracked pepper and frosted with a salty slurry of bacon and sauteed green onions that probably could enliven tofu. (If you are between paychecks, you can have a hamburger steak done the same way.) It's not Jar, but that's kind of the point. And when the waitress asks if you want her to put in an order for a chocolate soufflÃ©, you will say yes. Because you are a sport, and because that is the way it's done.
Tips from foursquare
the Dal Rae at Christmas, a pulsing, meat-scented wonderland of dark wood and smoked mirrors and shrimp cocktails as big as spaniel pups ~Jonathan Gold
The sea bass rocks! Get it prepared the house specialty way.
This place is classic, so order the classics, oysters Rockefeller, Caesar tableside, baked Brie, crab cakes, pepper steak, you get the idea. It's especially charming during the holidays.
Agree!! Best Sea Bass I've ever tasted. Oh, and please dress the part people. Look nice, smile more.
It smells like urine
