Maybe you love great steak—like Los Angeles Angels star outfielder Mike Trout, who celebrated his contract extension with a Cowboy Ribeye here. Or maybe you’re drawn by all the fine wines (30 by the glass). Or maybe you know how to two-step or line dance (can you say “Watermelon Crawl”?). Whatever floats your boat, you’ll have a blast at this 53,000-square-foot restaurant/stage/dance hall. While high-quality beef gets a big play here, Executive Chef Michael Rossi’s farm-to-fork menu goes far beyond meat and potatoes. Fresh seafood is sustainably sourced, and the seasonally driven menu puts a big emphasis on fresh, organically grown fruits and vegetables, often brought in from local farms or the restaurant’s own ranch in the nearby Santa Ana Mountains. Burn off enough calories for dessert with a spin on the 1,222-square-foot dance floor, with live bands playing country music until the wee hours.
