Jar - Los Angeles
Being situated in the heart of Hollywood has its advantages. For example, the modern chophouse Jar boasts the type of visibility that's rarely attainable. Its dining room and lounge have been featured on three top rated television shows: "Ray Donovan," "Modern Family" and "Top Chef Masters."
Owned by celebrity chef Susan Tracht, Jar has also garnered a number of notable accolades and appearances, from the likes of the "Today" show, Food & Wine magazine, the Los Angeles Times, Food Network and the prestigious James Beard Foundation Awards gala. Tracht’s familiar retro dishes take a page or two from the American culinary repertoire, including her signature pot roast, a 35-ounce Porterhouse for two, Kansas City steak, wild and sustainable fish, black mussels with lobster Bearnaise and more.
Sundays are especially popular because it's "Fried Chicken Sunday." For $35 per person, diners get fried chicken with gravy, cole slaw, corn on the cobb, greens and more.
