L.A. restaurants love to name dishes after celebrities. Their lawyers? Not so much. An exception is Larry Stein, counsel to Eva Longoria and Michael Moore, among others.
Chef Taylor Boudreaux of Westwood’s Napa Valley Grille has added the turkey-based Larry Burger in honor of the frequent diner -- he often brings in his clients -- whose office is upstairs.
“I’m the envy of the other name partners,” jokes Stein. Does he always order the burger? “Not only that, all my guests feel obliged, too.”
Editor's Note: The original version of this story incorrectly listed Sofia Vergara as a client.
