SF's Fancy Alexander's Steakhouse Firing Up Grills This Spring in Pasadena

The Michelin-starred steakhouse has outlets in SF, Cupertino, and Shanghai.

Matthew Kang is the Lead Editor of Eater LA. He has covered dining, restaurants, food culture, and nightlife in Los Angeles since 2008. He's the host of K-Town, a YouTube series covering Korean food in America, and has been featured in Netflix's Street Food show.

The steak game just got a major upgrade in L.A. Alexander's Steakhouse, which has received Michelin stars (2011-13) and a multitude of awards up in the Bay Area, has officially confirmed a Spring opening in Pasadena on the corner of Los Robles and Union.

The ritzy steakhouse features their own dry-aging rooms, whereupon steaks are held for upwards of 28 days. The rest of the menu tends to add in some heavy Japanese inflections, such as sake-beet cured hamachi on the omakase menu, plus an expansive Wagyu section that offer top grade Japanese beef` from a variety of prefectures. Think Miyazaki A5 wagyu for $120 a serving.

L.A.'s steakhouse game doesn't have a ton of contenders that really stand out, with the likes of The Royce, Chi Spacca, and CUT currently near the top of the heap. But as LA's dining scene improves, concepts like Alexander's are likely to swoop in to capture the growing market share.
