Nightlife impresario Victor Drai has opened a different kind of venue in West Hollywood.

Late last month he opened Rare by Drai’s, Victor Drai’s, which offers patrons a new twist on the traditional steakhouse experience.

Drai reimagines the traditional steakhouse environment as a rich, beautiful and sophisticated atmosphere, with a trendy lounge environment for pre and post-dinner cocktails.

In collaboration with Executive Chef Patrick Florendo, Drai has designed a menu that goes beyond the ordinary and even features his personal favorite: a Whole Roasted Loup de Mer, scented with lemon and thyme and roasted on a bed of fresh aromatic fennel.  The menu also features all prime-grade aged steaks (butchered in house and ranging from 7 oz. to 36 oz.), fresh seafood options such as the Grilled Skuna Bay Salmon and Steamed Bouchot Mussels, and specialty options such as Lobster Truffled Mash Potato, Snake River Farms Wagyu Ribeye with roasted shallots and a signature house-made Horseradish Cream steak sauce. 

Those with a sweet tooth will delight in items such as the  Frozen Godiva Candy Bar (featuring three layers consisting of a chewy caramel, a Godiva mousse and crunchy peanut butter), Tempura Cheesecake with mango coulis and shaved pineapple, and its Bananas Foster Bread Pudding.

Rare by Drai’s is located at: 8720 W. Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, CA 90069 in Sunset Plaza.
