The best steaks in Los Angeles will always be tender, but steak for two in the City of Angels is a bit of a tough sell: most adventurous diners will want to try as many dishes at a restaurant as possible, so limiting protein to what's usually the safest (and arguably most expensive) meat option might seem a little counter-intuitive.
Ordering a steak for two, however, is a statement about you and your date (or dining partner). It says "we're on the same page when it comes to the important things." Like enjoying big hunks of delicious, well-marbled beef.
What is oftentimes the most expensive dish on the menu also turns out to be the least fussy, allowing both diners a safe anchoring spot from which to drift in different culinary directions for starters, salads and sides. In the same way that the steak for two might be considered unadventurous, it's also a reliable dish that's difficult to get wrong.
So don't dismiss steak for two too quickly — the worst that could happen is that you and your dining partner will both be eating steak, and things could have gone a lot worse. Here's a list of where to find some of the best places to get steak for two in LA.
