With studio heads living on every corner, Brentwood seems like the kind of place that would have seven high-end steakhouses. But there’s just one (relatively new) place to eat giant pieces of meat, and it’s assimilated into the neighborhood very quickly. Baltaire is big and moodily-lit and you can easily pretend you’re in Midtown Manhattan, not a place where palm trees sub in for skyscrapers. This is the kind of place where the cheapest steak on the menu comes in just under $50, you can add on a lobster tail, and literally no one is using their own money for dinner.
