An unlikely grilling guru, Adam Perry Lang has rewritten the rules of grilling, dry-aging, cooking, and consuming meat over the past two decades. With APL Restaurant, he seeks to reinterpret the contemporary steakhouse with hyper-seasonal, produce-driven dishes to complement his famous dry aged beef in a shareable dining experience right in the heart of Hollywood. Inspired by his surroundings, Adam Perry Lang offers a lighter creative fare that draws on California's bounty alongside modern steakhouse favorites. The space is replete with a world-class wine and cocktail program, a daytime BBQ lunch offering, and a subterranean dry-aging room in the underbelly of the restaurant. Not to overlook the additional mastery of Adam Perry Lang’s custom-forged knives at APL Restaurant, where metal and heat come together to create the perfect cutting instrument, both in form and function. Knife-making has been a big part of the journey toward the opening his first L.A. restaurant. The 143-seat restaurant is situated in Hollywood’s historic Taft Building.
