Once the location of the trendy Boa, the Grafton Hotel recently opened Oliver's Prime on Sunset Boulevard.
The sleek, sexy, and intimate steakhouse’s white round leather banquettes, cranberry colored curtains, modern circular spotlight chandeliers, and mirrors everywhere you look, add a dramatic flair to the interior. Diners can also choose to eat al fresco on the patio overlooking the Sunset Strip.
Creekstone Farms supplies the signature steaks for chef Greg Elkin’s menu, including porterhouse, rib eye, filet, and New York strip cuts, as well as a few bison offerings. Surf choices to add to turf (beef) entrées include scallops, lobster, and prawns. Side sauces are plentiful, including peppercorn, coffee, creamy horseradish and Argentine chimichurri options. Other menu items include the short rib pappardelle, branzino, miso glazed halibut, and togarashi spiced tuna. Sides are both traditional and unique, with sautéed onions and bacon, charred corn, Thai chili broccalini, mushroom risotto, and lobster mac and cheese.
The bar offers a nice variety of specialty drinks including The Headliner with citrus vodka, mint, cucumber, lemon, and club soda; The Strip with Stoli Orange, aperol, grapefruit juice, and prosecco; and Rock the Mic with Tanqueray Gin, Licor 43, pomegranate juice, and orange bitters.
