The Eat Sheet: Hot New Restaurant -- Sherbourne
THR's pick of the week for industry power dining.
The Quick Pitch: A 1,200-square-foot disused rear patio area of Jerry’s Famous Deli on Beverly Blvd. has been turned into a rustic redoubt specializing in hearty, upmarket meat-on-plate neo-Americana fare like Kurobuta pork chops with goat cheese gnocchi.
The Insider’s Dish: Those nine saber tooth tiger skull sconces along the walls are the same as those found above the bar at adjacent club The Beverly. The after-dark den shares an owner, Guy Starkman, and designer, John Sofio, with Sherbourne.
The Must-Order Item: The bone-in prime rib Tomahawk steak, which serves two and arrives with a head of cauliflower cooked sous vide, or the creamy onion soup with melted gruyere cheese presented in a hollowed-out onion.
The Best Table: The two-top directly beneath the 14-foot-tall California spice tree at the center of the space.
The Industry Neighbor: New Line Cinema is just a couple blocks to the west.
