Lawry's Prime Rib

The other day we went to Lawry's on La Cienega Blvd. Lawry's in Beverly Hills has been around since 1938, so they must be doing something right! Even in this slow economy, Lawry's didn't seem to be hurting for business. We were able to walk in without reservations but the place was pretty packed.
The meal started off with the famous "spinning bowl salad". You get to watch a little show at your table: your waiter spinning the salad bowls. The salad was just okay. It was heavily drenched in thousand island dressing... And of course they had Lawry's seasoning pepper and special seasoning powder at each table.
I'm not the biggest beef person but I have to admit the prime rib here is pretty darn good. Lawry's is probably one of the best Prime Rib restaurants that I've ever tried. A "master carver" wheels around a shiny silver cart to each table to custom carve for you, your very own slice of prime rib.
I got a side of mashed potatoes and creamed spinach with my prime rib, and everything was drowning in their signature gravy. I felt like I was having Christmas dinner.
Our Lawry's dinner ended on a sweet note with their crème brûlée which was yummy. One more spoonful and my stomach would have exploded.

For every special event in my family we go to Five Crowns, a Lawry's restaurant. I like their tableside cesaer salads instead of the spinning salads, but otherwise I get the same thing as you.

Um... hello! You missed out on the creamed corn! It is the highlight of my meal every time I go to Lawrys. :) Johnnys family has a 'frequent diner' card and every time we go its just as good as the last. Next time you go, try the creamed corn. And, I actually like their salad! Maybe your server put too much dressing?
