Cuisine Scene: Steakhouses
Some nights just call for that classic steakhouse experience, with the traditional menu, white tablecloth service, and extensive wine list. Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion, hosting business clients, or treating the family, Long Beach offers a selection of steakhouses that fit the bill.
Meat lovers will enjoy The Carvery (201 Pine Ave), where flat iron bistro steak is an appetizer and you can order the Butcher’s Block Meat Sampler and receive 8 ounces each of filet mignon, ribeye, and flat iron steak, plus two family-style sides and three sauces. Located in the art deco building on the corner of Pine Ave and Broadway, The Carvery interior has elements of a traditional steakhouse with a modern finish, like walls covered in greenery and sculptural light fixtures. Enjoy live music on Fridays and Saturdays at 6:30 P.M.
