L.A. Prime

The view? Breathtaking. The cuisine? Carnivores only. The service? Waiters in white jackets. When you peel your eyes off the 360-degree views at 35 floors up, it might be for Maine lobster bisque or meat with a side of meat: veal Oscar, bone-in prime porterhouse, beef Wellington. Dessert is simple: fudge brownie with vanilla ice cream, caramelized bananas, and pecans. The revolving BonaVista lounge next door is a hoot.
