Take a peek inside the newly opened Le Relais de l’Entrecôte, an unstuffy Parisian-style steak frites spot now playing to the West Hollywood crowds. Though first announced back in 2014, the restaurant only really came online last week, serving its classic connection of seared and seasoned steaks alongside a pile of french fries, each covered in the company’s signature secret sauce.
While Relais isn’t the first restaurant here in Los Angeles to work the steak frites trend, they do have some history on their side. Internationally the company has been at it in and around France and beyond for some time, though this is their first West Coast outpost. Dining here closely follows the format of the others, however, with simple menu choices offered in a casual, colorful dining room. There’s the usual tile on the floor, wood-lined dining room, and array of perfectly kitschy paintings, though this outlet also offers high ceilings and loads of natural light.
Le Relais de l’Entrecôte is now open (though they're only accepting walk-ins at the moment) keeping both lunch and dinner hours seven days week. That means 11:45 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on weekdays, and 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. for dinner. Hours run to 3 p.m. for lunch on weekends, and until 11 p.m. for dinner.
