There are a handful of abysmal steakhouses in West Hollywood, but none really compare to the BOA. Come to this sprawling restaurant on the Sunset Strip and encounter greasy, middle-aged men making shady deals, a wait staff trying desperately to get sent home early, and overpriced plates of meat that, no matter what, will always come out well-done. If you come here thinking you’re going to eat good food, you’ve been misinformed. If you come here to try to raise your own status, then please delete our number.
